Having stirred up responses from readers who have never commented before on the previous posting from the ONION magazine, I am aware that many still read this "thing". Although the intent and sentiment was from another source, I cannot feign innocence in passing it on. Why should I? Wicked satire, even darkly wicked, is intended to provoke and shock. The piece from the Onion was harsher than what you would normally find in a political cartoon. Myself, I don't think it showed any more disrespect to the current president, than what he has shown to me or the rest of the world. Here is something more palatable?
Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
