Interesting Article

A friend of mine posted this article on Facebook and I thought I would link to it here:

Ten Things Americans don't know about America

This pretty much covers why I didn't post anything for the 4th (Independence Day). I'm not exactly what you would call a patriot. I feel that America think a lot more highly of itself than it should, and that blind patriotism itself is what starts war. Not to mention the vapid consumerism with which even our most 'patriotic' holiday is celebrated (which inspired a rather cynical poem of mine by the way) that generally makes me nauseous.

Anyway, great article.

  2. Sorry Sarah, but the link doesn't seem to be working, at least not on this computer.

    1. I was having trouble with it earlier too, it seems like the site might be having problems. It came back for a little while, so check back later and see what happens. Sorry.

  3. Much better! The link worked this time. It was a good article and I can't say that I disagree.
