Our high school graduates are functionally illiterate. Our highways and bridges are crumbling. And most of our factories have been converted to museums.
But fear not, my friends, for there's one thing you can always count on America being really good at—blowing shit up.
Our latest target, of course, is Libya. Our cruise missiles are pitting the landscape as we speak. And man, those explosions would make Michael Bay proud.
Our mission over there? Not important.
Congressional authority? Not needed.
Our strategic interests being protected? Unclear.
But don't go telling me that America is in decline when we can make multiple buildings disappear with the push of a single button, safely located hundreds of miles away the target.
So today is a day to stand tall, my fellow countrymen. Because while our nation may appear to be crumbling around us, we can take solace in the fact that we are not going down alone.
