In progress

We were going to go against our typical grain of cynicism and start a new feature called "Proud Moments of Americanism" but we've come up a little short as of late.

So, instead here's "Shameful Moments of Americanism"

I'm not sure of the year, but Reagan was President and together with Nancy they were in the Soviet Union. Raisa Gorbachev was giving her and the press a tour of the Hermitage Museum.

Note how the sycophantic American asshole reporter tries to goad Nancy into a fight with Raisa.


Ahhhhhh, proud to be an American!

I don't know how many other people understand/have experienced (or place any value whatsoever upon) the beauty of "lazy music" but for many, many years it was my sonic bread and butter. "Steering" MP3 by PERMUTATIONIST

Is that a flame buring in your brain? Beacon to the remaining hiding in your heart. A helpful hand to the lagging powers that beckon you to rise. Again. To explain your sense of mission is to reveal it too soon. In order to further the options your actions must be in tune. Your emotions take the back seat. But with a hand on the wheel. Steering is the challenge once you've gotten the car to move. other car is a horseman of the apocalypse bumper sticker by Holtek



Guess what happens when you spend $Billions$ per week in foreign countries on imperialist wars of aggression instead of maintaining your own country's infrastructure?


America - all together now:

She left me
She left her toothbrush
Last night I used it
I knew it would be the closest I'd ever get
to kissing her again
