“We make our own fortunes and we call them fate.” – Benjamin Disraeli

So, no picture today. Sorry. I just never had a time to pull out the camera really.

But I had a thought. I’m an American. And I’m one of those Americans who are pretty sick and tired of watching the rest of the world blame us for everything. Stuff is still pretty rocky here. Especially in my state, where we’re facing a government shut down on July 1st if they don’t figure out the budget.

Things aren’t good. But we’re still the greatest nation on the planet. Yes, we do and have done a lot of stupid shit. We’ve tried to control other countries whether for the benefit of the US or the safety of our allies. The world is a big place with lots of room to fuck up in it. I’m not making excuses for my country. But the fact of the matter is this… we as a nation, are the greatest social climbers since Cinderella. We might be flagging, we might look a little punch drunk lately. But I think other nations would be unwise to think we’re falling out of the ring. We clawed our way up the damn ladder, fighting dirty the entire way. What makes you think we won’t grab our enemies by the balls on the way down? Think about the nation you are talking about? We came to this country and basically stole it and gave those we stole it from casino’s in repentance… we are a nation that will cut your god damn breaks and then give you directions to the hill that ends in a ravine. We are not Rome. We will not fall silently under China the Red. And if other countries have a single thought that China’s helping hand is greater than the U.S.A.’s I suggest they look into how China manages their people’s freedoms and their Prisons. In fact, I might just say that some of the worst torture techniques used at Guantanamo Bay were Chinese techniques. Now couple that with a country who pisses on human rights. Oh yes, they’re WAY better than the US.

I guess, I just needed to get this off my chest after reading comments on a news site that were anti-USA. Tonight, I will go to sleep knowing that my generation is going to come into power soon. And we are a generation of people who are pissed off at other nations for all the shit they dumped on our doorstep. The problems they have screamed out for us to fix. The aid they cried for. The protection they begged for. And then those who turned around and called us liars, war mongers, tyrants, and scream for my nation to fall. We are not as stupid as the rest of this world thinks we are. In fact, if we do not have the most intelligent minds here for something… we bring them here. Or they come. We may complain about illegal immigrants, but the fact that we still complain about them means one thing. That we are still the country that people want to come to, hell or high water.  We are the strong, the brave, and the free. If we cannot find a way through the shit we are in. We will make one. I’m an American, and I believe in my country. Right or wrong. Tonight I will go to sleep knowing that we aren’t down for the count, we just need a rest. Tomorrow, we will get up and beat some ass.

*Salutes* Love you guys long time. XOXO – Jinx
