Irony

I do not like make generalizations based on race or nationality, however my resolve on this issue is being weakened by comments on one of my blog postings. It is often held in the UK that Americans don’t get irony. Judging by several comments on my posting entitled “Violation of the Bill of Rights”, I am beginning to think that this one statement about a nationality that may have some validity.

  1. As both myself and amberfireinus were born and raised in the USA and appreciate the irony of your post, I hope you do not give in to the temptation to label all Americans as narrow-minded, humorless fools.

    Remember that this nation is incredibly rich in resources, which include a diverse populace. By and large, this makes us a most fortunate nation! However, this also means there is a great deal of folly, mean-spiritedness, and arrogance.
