Making Amerika Great One Swastika at a Time

Aunt Beulah is a former comatose pseudonym who woke from her slumber when the country lobbed a grenade through her nursing home window.

Is it not refreshing to see America and its citizens finally paving The Path to the Moral High Ground? It’s about time we jumped on High Horse and galloped over the Constitution of the United States of America. Just between you and me, I feel the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, not to mention the Declaration of Independence, are pretty lame. After all, the Founding Fathers of this country couldn’t even be bothered to establish a State religion or mention Christianity at all in any of these documents.

But as time goes on, the din of a vocal mob of self righteous evangelicals becomes more tiring than I care to mention. Although I’m inflicted by birth and by training with a deductive bent, I’m always amazed at how members of this group always profess to be so much smarter than am I. They seem to have all the answers to so many questions most of which I have no interest in asking in the first place. But with the power of the media, cable and satellite TV, the internet and of course the good old door knock, they’ve left me no place to hide.
