A few things in life are worth fighting for. This is one of them.
Okay – the economy of the USA isn’t so hot right now. You’re borrowing a trillion dollars a year from China to finance two wars by credit card. You’re $16 trillion in debt. You’re addicted to cheap oil. And any day now, you’re going to find yourselves up to your asses in old people, all of whom will demand first-class health care and subsidized Viagra. But don’t worry – everything’s cool. We still like you.
But here’s the thing. Someone that aspires to be your leader said that he can help right your financial ship by slashing funding to Big Bird and Cookie Monster. Now, that’s just ludicrous. Do you really want to get on Bert’s evil side? You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.
