Stunning, it is, that I can send voluntary dollars to Japan to aid in the staggering aftermath of Mother Nature's omnipotence, but I have little say about my tax dollars being soaked in the blood of Afghan children. To the right-to-lifers waving an American flag over that operation in the name of self-protection as they call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood: GO TO HELL. You're already on your way.
America bubbles over at every seam with potential and greatness, yet we squander true exceptionalism by way of overblown self-importance, waving our guns in the Middle East with no end in sight, fighting over one another's pennies while clutching our own tattered coin purses. All the while, the elite Super Rich lounge in their purple silken robes, laughing and laughing and laughing.
Is this who we are? Is this who we want to be?
