Republican Logic

Corporate corruption starts to see the light? A few bad apples.

Torture scandals in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo? Nothing indicates it's systemic.

Republican legislators collapse under the weight of their own corruption? No reason to call it a "culture".

A few Muslims attack Western interests and white people? EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM IS A TERRORIST AND WE SHOULD KILL THEM ALL AND NUKE MECCA!!!

Patriotism or something

Well I was sure I wouldn't care about the fireworks, but when you hear giant explosions a few blocks away the temptation to go watch is overwhelming. Down by the river where, the best view (and thus the crowd) was, I saw people all the people of this city setting aside their differences and just enjoying the show- people of German descent, Irish descent, Polish, French, Italian, British, even a couple non-whites (probably). Truly inspiring.
