"They can be a great people, Kal-El. They wish to be.
They only lack the light to show the way."
Happy Independence Day to all my American brothers and sisters. I will be eating hot dogs and dropping firecrackers down my pants just to honor you and for my own amusement. I choose this picture because it kinda sums up what my feelings for Miss Britney and America - beautiful, talented but a little messed up at times.
All these images make me proud to be an American - even though I am not one. Happy Birthday America. You are the idiot cousin who I can love and hate all at the same time. You make me laugh and you bring me to tears. Your myopic vision of the world makes me sad and I wish you celebrated more of your REAL successes instead of the ones you are spoon fed by your media. You are at all times a contradiction. I hope you find a way to give the least of those among you their shot at the American Dream. Those words used to be a philosophy that guided your decision makers. Now it's a joke for your late night comedians. I tell you all this because I love you. Now get your shit together and give your President the chance to change your world. Trust me, let go of some of the hate and you just might to see things a little clearer.
Oh and stay COOL!
