    I was born in the USA,

    just like my dad, though I wonder about mom sometimes. I love her but sometimes I wonder what planet she originally came from. Sure, my birth certificate says I'm American, but maybe I was secretly adopted from another planet because sometimes I feel like I'm an alien.

    We Used To Be A Proud Nation

    Why do other countries hate us

    so much? Why do they feel the need to terrorize us? Attack us? Threaten us? Kill our people? Our friends? Our loved ones? Why are they keeping our soldiers captive and chopping their heads off? For what? To send us a message? What message? The only message they're sending us is...

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...

    Have some questions about retirement.

    If theoretically you obtained citizenship at an extremely late age and had never worked here or paid taxes your entire life, would you still be paid by the government thereafter? :/ (Because I really hope I don't have to pay for this man's bullshit.)
