The war rages on.

This nation is facing some tough times. Seems like the battle between the obviously intelligent and the demonstrable idiots has infiltrated our every pore. We no longer have the luxury of hating a common enemy. As a nation we are now fractured in our beliefs.

Gone are the days we could agree on the simplest of choices, gone are the moments we shared as a people. Today as we stand – we stand divided. Lovers of the Whopper on one side of the room and the true fans of the Big Mac on the other. The Great War has been raging for nearly a four decades and yet I’m no more certain of my love of Coke than I am of my desire for a Pepsi.

“People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
Everybody is another
Can you dig it (yes, I can) 
And I’ve been waiting such a long time
For Saturday”

Why just the other day I overheard two neighbors arguing the merits of Astro turf vs crushed rock as a lawn substitute…

What have we become?

Time for a political tongue lashing.

So I ask you consumers of TheGreatOutdoors “do you sometimes feel like a nut”?
