Meanwhile the police state and wars march on

We get a reality TV presidential campaign to distract us, while our money is spent and fellow citizens are killed in illegal wars. They put up a cutesy Big Bird ad to entertain us while our government ships guns illegally to a Mexican drug cartel, while simultaneously restricting our gun rights and jailing American citizens for nonviolent personal use of marijuana. We get to hear about how Romney will tinker with the little bit of funding for PBS while the federal reserve is stealing trillions from our savings nd enslaving us to pay back a debt created out of thin air.

I don't find the ad funny.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis
