Veni Vidi Visa - I came, I saw, I shopped.

I think visa is based on saying "I went" either in latin or some other romance language... as such Vini Vidi Visa is I came, I saw, I went... also quite a common thing in north america :)

"Visa" as in "Mastercard". Well, I thought it was amusing ;-P

I know, but it loses its touch when you know enough latin to pronounce it properly :(

"Patriotism isn't the same as nationalism. The former is a healthy love and respect for your country, but the latter is blind, total, and unrestricted support for any and all legislation, policies, or activities of a nation. Nationalism is the extreme, whereas patriotism is the goal, because good patriots know when to challenge their political leaders, laws, and policies when they become unjust or immoral."

I can't help but be amused by the definition of nationalism since nationalism has been a cause of many civil wars and revolutions. Nationalism is the blind belief that everything outside of one's nation is a detriment to it and must be kept out or made the same as their nation - hence its links to racism, xenophobia, isolationism, expansionism, and obsession with soveignty.

A man in need is a friend indeed.... :-)
