As we took off from London for New York a few days ago, our three over-excited children asked if there was any chance of the plane being blown up. I explained that the likelihood of that happening was virtually zero, and wondered how we were going to maintain some semblance of order during the flight. One did not wish the sedate American passengers by whom we were surrounded to form the impression that British parents are unable or unwilling to impart the rudiments of good manners.

It was posted before, but it is a very good read & IMHO, worth posting again.
It's worth book marking to see the additional comments
Maybe it's me, but I was tempted to write a lengthy response refuting all of the anti-American "Americans" that responded there. LOL
Gotta love those American liberals writing in to complain about an article that praises Americans. Could it be any more ironic? The libs complain and complain that the world hates us -- but then when a foreign paper runs a rare piece casting Americans in a positive light, guess who's jumping out of their chairs to rebut it?
LOL There's a term for that, chasing rejection.
I'm bookmarking this one for later. I haven't seen it yet, so thank you for posting this. Some of us don't see articles the first time around, so if you get heat for a re-posting it, let it flow like water off of a duck's back. :)
Classic. Maybe this is the most concise definition of a liberal or whatever you want to call the self-loathing lot. Thomas Jefferson owned slaves, so America is evil. See how easy that is!
I can't believe the high quality of the comment section
Oh. That this were true.
ping for later
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the heading. Thanks.
"These formidable people think freedom is so valuable that it is worth dying for."
Bump. Yes, a good read. And the comments, many fine ones...and of course our Liberals can't just keep their muttering insanity to themselves...
