Happy Fourth of July

In prior years, today’s American holiday would prompt me to wax poetic about patriotism and how proud I am to be an American. That was in prior years. This year, I am not so proud to be an American. In fact, I am downright embarrassed to be one. Our leadership is a joke; the two-party…

Suck it, 2016
