Hooo-rah! We're Number One!
HELLO? IS ANYBODY THERE?
I hope the American public doesn't think they're watching a television show, or something worse, like reality TV. This is where you vote for and elect the 2 most powerful individuals that control your lives and carry launch codes for a nuclear arsenal with them at all times. These are the people that decide if your family member is going to die in Iraq, Afghanistan or where ever they chose to send them to die in combat! They will control whether you spend your hard earned paycheck on gasoline or retirement, or worse - for food! How many people have had to give up their family pet becasue they can't afford to feed it anymore. I do care if our VP nominee has international experience and I do care if the other candidate is a self proclaimed 'pit bull with lipstick'. WHAT? How could someone in this situation say something so stupid and have people cheer? I thought everyone learned from the last 8 years what they didn't want. I guess I was wrong. I guess we should have spent more money on mandatory school education 20 years ago, maybe then we could keep up with our Asian and European counterparts. One thing we can cheer about in America. We are #1 at something bigger. We have the distinction of being the fattest people in the world!! Maybe if we don't really try we can be the stupidest also! Looks like were working on it.
Hip, Hip, Hooray! We're #1! We're #1!
