So the semester is finished. My first year at a university is done. Wow. If I hadn't gone back to school 3 years ago, I don't know what I would be doing right now. But, this is a time for celebration and not reflection. Now that I can start writing my thoughts again, I think that I'll share some of my thoughts about something that I found through Tom Tomorrows site. Check this out!
I'm not one for nationalism -it just doesn't float my boat. It's as phony as breast enlargement creams (I know, I've used them... I mean I've known someone that has used them... yeah that's the ticket...). Nationalism is just state religion, that can be used for good as well as bad. Most of the time, the right gets to stake its claim on nationalism because it feeds off of xenophobia and other ism's that scare the crap out of people.
Anyway, check out the breast pump. If that doesn't scream patriotism, I don't know what does! Or check out the "Confeddy Freddy!" Nothing says patriotism quite like leaving the Union. Or, how about stopping the flow with the Tampax Tampons of Glory.
Maybe -just maybe- they could get an American Flag Butt Plug to put up for sale! When the people of our country realize how the Bush administration is screwing them in the ass, then maybe they might just realize what those things are used for.
Anyway, thanks to Barry who created the site. I've never known anyone to put sarcasm in such a beautiful way and keep it completely American capitalistic!Posted by marc at May 15, 2003 09:41 PM | TrackBack
