While running through my Book of Faces Newsfeed the other day I spotted this - The 16 Most American Shirts that Ever America'd

It's 100% clickbait, and its awesome in its awfulness.

Seriously, how can you not see this and not think - Operation Commando Eagle!!!!!

http://media.files.gatehousemedia.com.s3.amazonaws.com/upload%2Ffiles%2Fhome%2Fghns-staff%2FTM-Combat-Stryker-2.jpg

Its an eagle without underpants!



I also loved Lincoln, with an assault weapon in one hand and either the Emancipation Proclamation or the Constitution in the other, while riding a bear. Or the tasteful Declaration of Independence hovering over Mount Rushmore as a flag waves and an eagle looks on wistfully.

This overly patriotic flag bathing is why I now cringe at so much of this stuff, I've had people in my family call me unpatriotic cause I chose to laugh at it. What happened to us that we now accept these tacky Made in China bits of red, white and blue?

It sounds old and curmudgeony to say "when I was a kid", but really am I the only one who thinks that not so long ago it felt like a more endearing holiday? Maybe its just me but it was a bit of nerdy fun to be wrapped up in American Mythology of how we came to be this amazing place.

Now it just seems like who has the biggest fireworks or the most illegal and the biggest barbecue.

Maybe I'm just jaded these days.

I love Bernie, but honestly I don't know that the country is liberal enough for him to win against the corporations that run the GOP clown bus.

Though I do hope that Hillary makes room for him on her team or cabinet maybe.

My deep concern is how well will he work to get things done if elected.

That's another problem too - he has great ideas but sometimes I think he likes yelling into the wind and saying no one can hear him.

They felt deliveries were important for the day before the 4th so the rest of us got stuck working too. Off on Monday though.

I have to work later as usual and the Mets start another west coast trip so I have a few mega late shifts coming up. I feel like I have bartender hours pn these weeks.
