Cause I'm Proud to be Tall, where at least I know ...

If it weren't the norm, a headline like this would stand some chance of getting in the MSM, but frankly, they don't care, and if you believe in market ideology, the reason they don't care is because we don't care. The essence is that a CEO was sentenced to 40 months for stealing $3B in a mortgage fraud case in Oakton Va and a poor black man robbed $100 from a bank (the teller tried to give him more but he said he just needed $100 for food), feeling guilty he turned himself in the next day… and was subsequently sentenced to 15 years in prison.

It's stuff like this that has me thinking as we approach the 4th of July weekend and the ensuing flag waving... isn't blind adoration of your country just like being in love with yourself because your tall? or have blond hair? it's the place where your parents were born... you had nothing to do with it, if you work to correct injustices like this, then you can stake your claim, as long as they go on, you need to be pissed off and raising hell.
