It is time for the United States to be humble, before we are humiliated.

We have a long history of acting like an empire abroad, while somehow keeping the truth about what we are actually doing hidden under a veil of lies, stump speeches, and cleverly labeled initiatives. Take Reagan; the most beloved modern saint of the Republican party. He led the American sheep through the 1980’s by blowing sunshine up the collective national ass, all while propping up dictators and revolutionary armies around the world.

Enclosed is the letter we would have sent Kate Beckinsale, our Woman of the Year for 2007, if she returned our calls…or knew who we were besides the people she served a restraining order to.

It’s that time of year that the crew and readers think about the women who have affected our lives so profoundly. Before voting, however, you may want to read about what makes these candidates so special.

The American people are natural dreamers. We are idealists by default, which stems from the way in which our country was founded, the legacy of which has continued through the past 230 years, highlighted by several great shining triumphs. We rose from a disorganized amalgamation of 13 colonies to evolve into the unchallenged Superpower that we are today in grandiose fashion. We’ve gone to the moon, saved the world from fascism, and broken down social, racial, and gender related barriers which have truly started to deliver on the promise to provide “liberty and justice for all.” These are powerful ideals, and a powerful idea from the right person at the right time is what keeps societies in check.

I turned on the T.V. the other night, something I seldom do anymore. Unless it’s to watch something on PBS or on the History channel. There’s so much crap on T.V. that I’d rather spend my time writing, reading, or talkin’ smack about the government on Myspace.

If I watch anything else, it’s cop shows like Hill Street Blues or N.Y.P.D. Blue. I don’t know why I’m drawn to those shows. I guess it’s the nostalgia I feel while watching it, as a kid I watched these programs and wanted to be a good guy. Just like the good cops I saw on T.V. It was as I grew older that I found out real life was completely different. Most cops I encountered were assholes. There are very few who are helpful, and who don’t carry their ego around with their badge.

Well, once again tax time has come and gone. Each year we get our W-2s in the mail and, like good peasant merchants, we handed some of our hard-earned income over to the syndicate racketeers. . . er, sorry, I mean our government.

After doing my taxes, I was to receive $546 from the Feds, while I owed the State $847. Once I “took from Peter to pay Paul,” as they say, I would be in the red, owing the difference of $301.

So, I went to this little hole in the wall place that I frequent often. It’s an old school video store, the kind you never see anymore. They’ve got over 8,000 videos in their selection, most of them on VHS some of the movies available aren’t even on DVD yet.
