Not too long ago, fantastically rich people used tax payer money designated to bail out their glorified gambling house businesses to give themselves bonus payments.

Now these same rich people are cutting the bare bones social security and Medicare monies that millions of working and poor people depend on for basic survival.

Most of these poor people, though, still revere and worship this economic/political system to the point of proudly offering up their lives and the lives of their children to defend it.

My response, the only sane response, remains: purchase a new American flag each week, cut it into strips and mix it in with my meals in the hopes that eventually I'll die of chemical poisoning from the colored dyes and plastic compounds used in its construction.

OK One more time, this one with the banjo!
