My minimum standard for considering America great again

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Fri Sep 07, 2018 9:23 am

Certainly not anything any politician of any flavor is even talking about.

Not any pie in the sky crap about the "American dream" or something expensive involving outer space, but something that was once routinely possible in my lifetime. :oldman:

Not anything that anyone at the time would have said is what makes America great, because they took it for granted.

I want to go to the airport, buy a ticket on a domestic flight, and get on a plane. Just like that and no nonsense about showing ID (let alone being searched), just as it might be getting on a city bus.

Of course even back then the authorities reserved the right to stop and search you in certain cases, but it was not considered normal routine.

Won't ever happen.

Also, who asked you? Dipshit. :P

My standard is this: When they establish a national intitute for the study of hentai tentacle anime and make me the director of said institute. Then, and only then will America truly be great! :freedom:

Could happen Abdul. Thing is that we'd have to wipe out 1/2 the world. Maybe thats a good thing.

With helium instead of hydrogen, of course. :P
