Ok, it's been almost a week since this happening but what in the world are people thinking that Cat Stevens has connections to the 9/11 terrorists??
Only because he's muslim and changed his name into Yusuf Islam??
Cat Stevens is one of the most peaceful artists in the world who always fought for peace and always took part in charity stuff!
What's going on in this world anyway?
He's going to fight for his rights and I hope he'll show these people what a bunch of idiots they are!

According to officials, Stevens has given money in the past to Hamas which is on the US terror list.

Well, he'll be telling his side of the story next Friday on '20/20'. He may have supported the wrong group here and there (by mistake I'd think), but I don't believe for a second that he's a danger to the U.S.

It's all the fault of Sean Hannity. He's been trumpeting it all over FNC since 9/11/04.


God wants you to send me some money.

Day by day, I become more and more embarrassed to admit that I'm an American.

I've stopped saying the Pledge of Allegiance at school. I'm so sick of it.

Shame about this. I'll listen to 'Teaser and the Firecat' for him.

Ahh I love 'Bitterblue'.

They attribute that to a "spelling mistake."

Why?

I think your anger is misplaced.

Aren't you and I supposed to be asleep Zeni? :-P

And I agree.. it's never worth disowning your own country because your government sucks. I'm proud to be an American because our people are good, and we can't help it if our higher ups make some stupid decisions.

I don't hate the U.S., I consider myself very lucky to live here. I'm just extremely annoyed right now.

At least the "under god" part, since there should be separation of church and state.

Well, I don't HATE the US. There's lots of great stuff about it. I'm rather depressed about the widespread malaise and ignorance these days regarding society as a whole. We have the most inane debates in this country these days...gay marriage, war on terror, broken health system...it's rather ridiculous how many blinders a lot of us are wearing.

Regarding the 'we can't help it if our higher ups...', well, actually, we can. Our government *is* us in this country. We vote. We repeal. We petition. We canvas. We protest. We actually do have a lot of say in what's going on. Unfortunately, less than half of us actually speak up. *sigh*.

The pledge of allegiance is a stupid, fascist thing. Did you know they had to do the same thing in Nazi-Germany? That's EXACTLY what it is, and it should be abolished immediately!


Since you like to throw the word "facism" and its various forms around, Caspar, perhaps you'd actually like to know what it means:
http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=fascism
Now that we have the definition down, we can start using it properly.

The Pledge is not fascist, nor is it something that occurred solely in the US and Nazi Germany. But by all means, continue to make comparisons between the two countries.
