Sometimes if you step back and look. If you remove yourself from the Country and look at America critically, you will really begin to wonder, my god, what the rest of the world must think of us.

We don't even have to go back into our history very far, although doing so tends to make us look even worse, we can just start with the year 2000 for purposes of this article. No need to go back to Wounded Knee and the thousands of other wholesale slaughters of Native Americans. No need to go back to the Japanese interment or Joe McCarthy or JFK's asassination or the Director of the Eff Bee Eye running around with women's underwear on under his suits..but   digress.

2000.   For the first time ever a Presidential election hangs on one State (hello Florida!) and eventually the United States Supreme Court steps in and illegally appoints George W Bush and the world shakes it head.

2001-2004. We are embroiled in an illegal war on a false hunt for weapons of mass destruction. Our "strategic" bombing of Iraq's water, sewer, electricity grid ( a Class 1 Crime Against Humanity) invites America to suffer the anguish of the Iraqi people on 9/11/2001.

Our President kicks into cowboy mode. Unfortunately he's all hat and no cattle. We are mocked.

2004 Presidential Election. Almost 50% of America watches in anguish as George W Bush is re-elected amongst voting irregularities. It's so bad Americans begin to send apologies with their pics out over the internet to the rest of the world saying: "We're Sorry"

After that all too brief re-cap we come to the recent present. Churches, who, despite their tax exempt status, are taking to political discourse and trying to influence secular law. Senators trolling for public gay sex in bathrooms, Senate pages coming forward with tales of abuse, frauds, money scandals and "celebrities" like Rush Limpbaugh. In only the most recent of Lush's hijinks he accuses a young woman of being a slut and a prostitute for wanting to use Viagra"....errr" birth control. Yes, Viagra and birth control are apples and oranges, UNLESS you're a middle aged male who is not actively breeding and just wants to dip the wick. Right Rush?

The world must shake their head, drink heavily, and talk about the demise of the once proud America.

We are indeed sorry.
