Dear USA:

Google is patriotic.


But I'm not. Or at least not in the common sense of the word.

I do not like the 4th of July or the all-American hamburger. I think the pledge of allegiance is dumb and that red, white and blue is the worst color combination in existence. I hate our healthcare system/corporate-dominance/earth-destroying ways and want to move to France.

But all that doesn't mean I'm not proud of the USA. It just means I'm bitter on days like the 4th of July when we're supposed to celebrate how stupid things have become. And I become absolutely livid when my Six Feet Under marathon is interrupted by an atomic-air-raid-of-a fireworks show (and I even like fireworks - but only on the hand-held sparklers scale).

I think we actually could be the greatest country in the world if we stopping saying we are and actually did things to make it so. Let's give people education and access to health care, destroy corporate monopolies and stop being the most polluting country on the face of the Earth.

And as far as not liking red, white and blue, it's strictly cosmetic.
