America is going down the tubes faster than you can say “debt ceiling.” Or “quantitative easing.” Or “Obamacare.” Or “Congressional Republicans.”
Seriously people … it’s getting bad out there, and unless you’ve got an extra $16 trillion lying around (or a time traveling DeLorean), there’s not much to be done.
And while our Republic becomes the “Evil Empire” at home (targeting its citizens based on their beliefs and spying on its news organizations for doing their jobs), it also pursues a senseless and costly interventionist policy abroad – spending money and lives it can’t afford on a vaguely defined (and theoretically concluded) “War on Terror.”
The victims of which we’re supposed to honor today …
Anyway … while it’s easy to get bummed out watching our country begin its inevitable swirl down the toilet of history, one thing we haven’t screwed up (yet) is gorgeous women wearing next to nothing on boats (a.k.a. freedom worth fighting for).
Somebody cue Lee Greenwood people …
