    No, it was England...



    ...and "fig" doesn't work as well as "pheasant" in the plucking stakes.

This isn't "Head of State" and we are not saying "God bless America and no place else."
    I don't mind other people's reasons for saying or not saying it. I'm just saying, that's my personal reason. Add to that the fact that I'm a deist, so I don't really think God is really involved in blessing anything at the current time.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Nothing wrong with saying "God bless America" but there is something wrong when people have an expectation of you saying it. Something like that should always come from the heart and not social expectation.

    But of course, goes without saying.
