If you don't know what the word "patriot" means, how can you know that you are not one? On what do you base your assertion? Did you flip a coin?

I know what people say the word means ("love of country," whatever the hell that means); but practically speaking, it's lately come to be a word seized by the right to mean "warmonger." Now some on the left are seizing it for their own purposes (Joe Biden infamously said that giving money you earn to the government to redistribute is "patriotic" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCqgNWRjmAc and the term "economic patriotism" has been used in trying to block corporate inversions).

So, no, I have no idea what the word really means, as it has come to mean nothing at all. But, whatever it does mean - if it means anything - it's probably not something I support.

Even if I do agree with using military force in a particular instance, it scares me how some on the Right question the patriotism of those who oppose a war, like they are "unpatriotic" or "unAmerican."

So the word means shit to me.

On the other hand, Chris Kyle was a great sniper, and Clint Eastwood made a great movie about his life, and it is great fun to watch, and I will probably buy what I hope is a great BRD  ;)

So if I were to use "patriot" in a sentence--no matter what that sentence was--you'd immediately gainsay it?

Jenkins: "Movie-goers are economic patriots."

Drink: "The hell you say!"

Jenkins: "Assume that it's true."

Drink: "I'm never paying to see a movie again!"

OR

Jenkins: "Patriots get more pussy."

Drink: "The hell you say!"

Jenkins: "Assume that it's true."

Drink: [loud singing voice] "Ohhh, say can you see . . . ?"

I hope you buy the new Patriot version of American Sniper. Then maybe I'll get your unpatriotic hand-me-down.  ;)

No, because I never bought the first one. I was waiting to get the special edition from Target which was a steelbook but I never found it in stores and I refused to pay what the scalpers wanted for it. So I was waiting for the price to drop. So now I don't have to. Yeah, I'll probably pick this new one up.

I hope you buy the (ineluctably upcoming) Patriot version of The Patriot.

I was gonna say,  "Then Patriots get pussy wearing MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" baseball caps, but thought better of it. And just now, she got ridda my ass - too many comments about Trump and herself being ignoramuses. Aren't I a charmer?  ;)
hey, I knew from the first minute we were all wrong for each other. Anyone who can stand to be with me for a night, there's gotta be something wrong with. So, you make a notch in your belt and move on  >:D

Next time we get together, I'll be sure to wear a Hazmat suit.

Do me a favor, send me a text every hour to remind me, No Politics. :D

I brought her flowers, everything is smoothed over. Girls are such suckers.  ^-^

On the train heading over to her, I saw a lesbian wearing a baseball cap that said MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN  ;D

Dumb propaganda film with strong racist undertones. The directing of the individual scenes is not bad, but as a a whole it is also a dramaturgical mess. It was quite funny when 10 min before the end Kyle had out of nowhere suddenly a "problem" with his heroic killings. Cooper was quite good in the lead. All in all it was mostly entertaining. 5/10
