Thanks for a Job Well Done

Like most Americans, I’ve always had a yen to visit other countries around the world. Not the usual kinds, though – the ones tourists flock to, bringing back gaudy souvenirs and photographs of themselves standing in front of some ancient castle or monument – but the other kind they call, “Third World Socialist countries.” You know, the ones where everyone (well, almost everyone) gets to share equally in the misery.

Take Venezuela, for instance, where civil war threatens to break out at any moment, and you’re aware that your very life is in constant danger.
To share that experience; the sights, sounds, and smells, and just to be among the throngs of starving masses, fighting each other just to stay alive. Oh, the thrill of it all!

I’ve long been hoping to take that trip someday. But now, thanks to the diligent, hard work and dedication of our “open minded” and “open border” promoting politicians, I won’t have to leave home to see and experience all those things for myself after all. Because in that, typical Yankee “can-do” and “nothing is impossible” spirit, they’ve managed to bring it all right here to a neighborhood near you; complete with all its sights, sounds, and smelly glory!
