Damn proud to be an American. Period.

There is little I can say about America that hasn’t already been said, or would be empty hyperbole. Suffice it to say, America has allowed me to become the man I am today – complete with all my virtues and vices – and for that I am forever grateful and indebted to her.

The idea of America is bigger than any one person or group; it is the place where all persons and all groups can live and work together as equals. But the idea is far from realized – for all our successes, there are just as many (if not more) failures which we must still devote immeasurable energy to rectifying. So on this Fourth of July, 234 years since declaring freedom from tyranny for all peoples, let us celebrate the great victories of our past but not forget that the real work still lies ahead.

America, fuck yeah.

    HER?

  1. Glad to see another Arrested Development fan out there. Yes, HER, indeed.

    This brings up a really good question- is America a man or a woman? One the one hand, you have Lady Liberty. But you also have Uncle Sam.

    Hmm. Deep. Maybe America has a little of both? I watch medical dramas. It could happen.
