The war on bullshit
Christmas is not so merry this year. This year we did not put up our family Christmas pinecone wreath. It seems we have run out of pinecones. This year we were told our pinecone source was verboten. In the interest of homeland security people are not allowed to walk around local water sources. Well OK, I’m an American and it’s my water source so perhaps if I saw three guys in turbans pouring white powder into the water supply I might be inclined to call the cops. But since my family can no longer enjoy a peaceful walk among tall pine trees, a simple family pleasure is no more. Now that I will soon be a grandfather it would appear that we will not be passing this family tradition down either.
Hey, can’t wait for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. I am going to find the largest possible flag I can find and nail it up on the house. Upside down, the signal of a country in distress. That’s what the “war on terror” has done for this country. The terrorists won.
