Happy Birthday, America. You’re a lovable land, abundant in goodness and brimming with beauty. I want to put my arms around you and give you a big hug.

Sorry for all the troubles you’re having at the hands of the morons who can’t seem to figure out right from wrong and good from bad. Sorry for the jerks who know better, yet intentionally deceive for power and profit. Sorry, too, for the losers who just don’t care.  

There is a solution, as we all know: a barbell in every household, a pair of dumbbells in each child’s hand, and a tub of Bomber Blend on all kitchen tables from coast to coast. The tools of greatness at our fingertips, we shall rise like eagles in the everlasting skies.

God bless America, the land of the free.

Oh, incidentally, did you know America’s bill for 2012 went up by $3,790,000,000,000.00. Paying that, as you know, is an expenditure of $10,400,000,000.00 a day, each day and every day. Gee, that’s bigger than a breadbox. How do we pay it? No problemo. We borrow a mere $4,000,000,000 daily to make up for our accumulated shortfall.

And you thought I didn’t know my math.

Here’s a Tony Robbins video link for more heavy stuff to juggle between sets:


Since no one is home on a glorious Fourth of July to read this eloquent and profound communication, I’ll save (Save? What’s that?) my breath and make this an economical (Economical? What’s that?) message for the lean, strong and prudent (Prudent? What’s that?).
