Welcome to America ...

Welcome to America …

…where we believe in individualism until you kneel for the national anthem
…where we have more prisons than schools
…where our schools are funded by the local district and our prisons are funded by the state
…where we decry socialism unless we're bailing out billion-dollar corporations
…where it's illegal to possess and sell drugs unless you're a pharmaceutical company
…where we scream inflation while corporations are raking in record profits
…where you work 40 plus hours a week to make someone else rich while depending on charity to pay your own bills
…where wealth not culpability shapes justice
…where the fear of anything that isn't capitalism is somehow communism
…where you need a background check to get a job but not to purchase a gun
…where you will get arrested and sent to prison for bribery unless you're a lobbyist
…where you pay more for healthy foods and less for fast food
…where we get more upset about burning flags than we do about burning books
