Calling all cartoonists
Liberty goes nuts!
There's a lot happening in the world yet I wonder if the drums of war will grow old and brittle.
I wonder about a lot of things lately. My country is becoming less and less recognizable so I wonder.
I wonder if Americans even know what we mean when we say we are the nation of LIBERTY?
What is LIBERTY to us? As individuals there are certain characteristics or personality descriptors that others are able to use to describe us. Some of them are favorable and others are not. Lately, I am finding it harder to believe that America can honestly describe itself as a nation of Liberty. It has become quite something different. Arguably opposite. Yet our govt screams at the top of its lungs claiming we are the nation of liberty. Just as a man who does not know his true BAD self continually finds the need to TELL others that he is a GOOD man. He is even more so compelled to verbally affirm this idea when his questionable deeds are exposed.
As America continues to expand NATO and its greedy hands for oil in places around the world... as America bombs these nations into submission... as America shoots its way into the backdoor of oil fields throughout the East... it is no wonder he has to scream all the louder that he is a nation of Liberty! How else would we hear him because the bombs and the shooting are so so loud!
