Soulsearch, I just came upon your blog from your comments on someone else's, and have read your blog from beginning to end! I like your observations. This is one great post! You feel the contradictions you've exposed even more when you've been living in that "great" nation as long as I have.

Thanks for your comments all. Its sad that we have to live with injustice all around us. I just felt the need to speak out. You can't fool everybody all the time!

Hope the world becomes a better place soon, otherwise we're all going down the drain!!!

yes, i am sure the list can go on and on...

this country actually claims to be "the beacon of freedom"? more like the "beacon of hypocrisy, lies, lies, and more dirty lies"
