As a Bostonian, I agree, the Boston Irish are way cooler than Puritans.

It’s not cynicism to point out that a leaking roof is leaking.

Amen.

When Russians expect everyone in Finland to speak Russian.

I think you're projecting your own feelings onto all Americans. I am proud to call myself an American, despite the problems in our country.

I'm not projecting. If I see an opportunity to take a jab at the country I'm going to take it. Doesn't mean that it's a lost cause or the worst place on the planet, but only singing praises is a great way to be out of touch with reality

That is something I have never understood; I get that you can get attached to a certain place but I have never felt pride or other strong emotions for any nation or for what they stand. How does that work?

The thing that confuses me the most is that often the most loud and proud supporters of the country.... haven't really done much for the country. It's one thing to have served in the military, it's an entirely different thing to bitch about taxes, watch Fox news all day, and only work a part time job as a subpar mechanic.

Though this is I guess part of not really understanding pride in things you haven't contributed to, not specifically for country alone. I guess I'm supposed to be proud when a sports team, that I have contributed nothing to and it would be no better or worse off if I'm dead and gone and doesn't have a clue I exist, happened to play well?

I am just glad to be part of the big family of people that call themselves Americans. I think it is quite nice to be an American. Perhaps it is different for others, and that's OK. My family has lived in New England for many years, and I enjoy hearing stories of relatives who died fighting for the North in the Civil War, for example.

I am especially attached to New England, I don't really care for the Deep South. If I had to show a new arrival to the USA the best parts of America, I would definitely show him around Massachusetts... call me biased! There is so much history here, and I think MA residents really value their connection to the American Revolution. That is an example of something I draw pride from as an American.

I would never hesitate to point out the problems in our country... prisons, racism, drug laws that are too heavy, a bloated government, corporations are too powerful, etc. Maybe you disagree with the size of the US military or some such thing. Personally, I support a big military, but I don't expect other people to agree with me per se. Despite what's wrong with America, I'm not ashamed to live here.

I'm not ashamed to live here either. It's better than a whole lotta other places in the world. But in my head it feels weird to brag about things that are expected behavior. Oh wow you don't have a genocidal despot in charge of your orwellian surveillance state. Congrats for not being sh*t? It's not something to boast about. That's like expecting praise for not soiling yourself daily as a 30 year old. It's also less interesting, since it's more about what.... is, not what can be/needs to be done
