Twain: “Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it.”

“Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it.”

― Mark Twain

Twain's wise words were mentioned this morning on CBS Sunday Morning - an interesting feature on Mark Twain continuing to live today through impersonators and stage re-enactors. This was one of the many featured observations from Twain.

It's also hits at the heart of the current fissures and fights here on DU.

Mark Twain, once again - nails it.

Banned from BOG group after posting news item about Larry Summers.

Was not disrespectful to PBO.

But host dug up other posts of mine that "questioned" Dear Leader's infallibility. So I was banned from the group, not based on what I had posted in the group - but on OTHER posts.

I have seen other ATA posts about this, and Skinner I hope you can find a way to accommodate ALL members of DU - fairly.

Are some more equal than others here?

Who is the Syrian "opposition" we are helping, and why? What are our "interests"?

WTF is going on here?

Who are we planning to bomb and why?

Is the "opposition" Al Quaeda fighters? Aren't they the "enemy"?

What are these "national interests" we keep hearing about?

What are the likely consequences here?

What is the goal?

Please, someone, explain this craziness to me.
