it is often strange to be an american with a european upbringing living in the usa , or maybe it just makes it easier to hate myself. seeing the way the current political situation is portrayed is both depressing and amusing. o well, at least this inspired me to look up some robert burns poetry:
O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
It wad frae mony a blunder free us,
An' foolish notion:
What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us,
An' ev'n devotion!
the end of to a louse.
