January 26th, 2011

I believe in America.

And I know President Obama was trying to sound optimistic when he said:

But how did we go from a country of giants…men who harnessed lightning, viagra usa view caught the sun in a bulb, case and taught men to fly…to a country of preening twenty-somethings lauded for inventing the “relationship status”?
