Those young democrats at UC Irvine sound a lot like this guy:

"Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place," the president said, "remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.

You got that right, nearly half of Congress are liberal democrats, and look who the stupid voters put in the White House currently.

The result has been declining wages for workers and the worst GDP growth in modern history.

There was a time when you undisputably lead the world in many areas. Now, other than military size and technology, what do you see as areas of American exceptionalism? Oh, and lack of gun laws.

On average, it is a great place to live but you have lost some and others have gained some.

As in litigation? Or do you mean civil rights. If you mean civil rights I will argue that was true, but right now both Canada and the UK have less government intrusion and more protections from search and seizure.

Didn't see that.

The US is modern-day Rome, and is struggling for its soul. Even so, the US is remarkable, especially for an empire.

I look back to the 50s, and I see a whole lot that's improved.

The soul of the US was dealt its most grievous blow, in my lifetime, by the Iraq War and the VN War, in that order.

So yes, we've lost some, and others have gained some. Some of those who've gained some owe a little thanks to the US, e.g., socialist Europe.

I mean, if someone damages your property, including your person, your odds of being compensated are very good.
