The saying "Good fences make good neighbors" means that fences improve relationships between neighbors, right? Not really. Being an "Indian giver" (if you'll pardon the non-PC term) is generally considered a pejorative. Should it be? "My country, right or wrong" was not intended as a blind patriotic statement. The full quote is "My country, right or wrong. When right, to be kept right. When wrong, to be put right." I've begun to debunk a few misquoted and misunderstood memes on my wiki, right here.
