Funny, I know two idiots who do nothing but harm to whatever cause they're trying to promote which is usually themselves, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. But I do know what you are trying to say about people speaking on behalf of supposedly the entire country. They're just trying to promote their view point, not the opinions of others. You can also say political parties do the same thing..... I'm a strong proponent of thinking for yourself and not letting someone else to they thinking for you. That's one of the reasons why I hate religion in general. They let a book or a minister of some shape speak for the entire group instead of letting people form their own conclusions about something. But if they like religion, then that's fine. Don't want to be one-sided like Bill Maher. By the way, I hate clowns and mimes too. Bug the you know what out of me.
