A brief history of America from 1950 to 2013:
A brief breakdown of the American populace as of 2013:
“It’s for our protection,” a fellow passenger responded when I griped about the installation of [cancer-causing, privacy-invading, hour-long-security-line-inducing] full-body x-ray scanners at JFK.
“Then the second amendment is obsolete,” responded a coworker when I informed him it wasn’t about hunting or self-defense.
“But…football…!” countered a friend when I informed him that a Weimar-style economic meltdown was all but inevitable.
“Feminism was a much-needed correction to our male-dominated, patriarchal society,” contended my professor of Gender Studies.
“But we’re a nation of immigrants!” said my neighbor when I told him we should immediately deport all illegals and impose an immigration moratorium at least until the unemployment rate is under 5%.
“Kids should be able to vote,” insisted a “pundit” on a “news” channel.
“There have been no scandals under the Obama administration!” said a family member who gets her “news” from the MSM.
“They’re not entitlements, they’re rights!” insisted a friend active in the “Occupy Wall Street” “protests”.
“Moooooo,” said the average American when informed that he now lives under a de facto totalitarian state.
