I witnessed something disturbing last night.

While watching the Fourth of July Fireworks on the waterfront in Sausalito, I experienced some mighty strange crowd reaction.

The fireworks were pretty good, but, seven or eight times during the event, a charge would be fired into the night sky that would burst and then send out all these smaller projectiles that looked like fighter-borne missiles. The "missiles" would then streak toward the ground (actually, the water of San Francisco Bay).

I thought it was some kind of strange that, each and every time, the crowd would go into this "Whoo- hoo! Hell yes! USA!USA!USA!"

In Sausalito, no less. And there were women in the crowd going all nuts, too.

Maybe it would be a good thing if all of those Jingo-Dog Chickenshit Bastards had the opportunity to be fired upon, someday. Maybe just a few rifle rounds, maybe RPGs, maybe mortars.

They'd wet their pants at the first report.

Fuck 'em. They made me feel like a stranger in a strange land.

What the hell have we come to?
