According a recent survey conducted by a foundation at the University of Chicago, America is at the top of the list in countries proud of their identity and accomplishments. We're number one in patriotism.
I wonder whether or not they took into account all the traitors like Michael Moore, Cindy Sheehan, and The Dixie Chicks. Probably not.
The survey also pointed out the European countries ranked the lowest in terms of patriotism. Ooh, now there's a big surprise. I'm going to keel over, I'm so surprised. What's funny is that somebody paid good money for a study that says what most people already knew.
Speaking of apathetic Europeans, I heard of a newspaper ad about a gun for sale, in France. "Never been used.." the ad says, "and it's been dropped only once."
