The fact that the United States of America is the birthplace of the blues, jazz, rock and roll and Muhammad Ali is argument enough for me that we are a place worthy of pride.

Depends on the context. This could spark a very long philosophical debate.

As someone who has lived in and traveled to many of the same places, I agree with him. Americans have this strange mix of bluster and self-hate that makes some of us overly sensitive to foreign criticism. We KNOW we don't understand Europe, Asia or Africa, for instance.

Anthony Bourdain's culinary travels have taken him to every corner of the world. But somewhere in between jetting off to Namibia and Laos, he never passed beneath the glowing yellow awnings of a Waffle House.

I love the US and it is absolutely worthy of pride. Everyone wants to look down on us but we work harder than any other country and we will demand our respect.

Our show focuses on some of those communities and on those stories, of people who looked to America as a refuge, as an ideal, as a place of opportunity -- and who found it in Houston.

Samuel Johnson said"patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel", but I consider myself a patriot. The fact that the United States of America is the birthplace of the blues, jazz, rock and roll, and Mohammed Ali is argument enough for me that we are a place worthy of pride.
