Because I live here and I like it here!
This actually is a good thread...but sometimes I wonder why we have to defend ourselves so much. I think there are other great countries too. I don't think the US is the only great place to live.
But I get the impression that sometimes we have the need to "explain" ourselves to others.
I think "hey, I live here and I like it" is good enough, personally.
But I agree with a lot that's been said so far.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.
