Amid the many emails I got this Memorial Day, this one was by far the funniest –
Is it too much to ask?
All I want is one Memorial Day when I’m not bombarded by the songs “Only in America” and “God Bless the USA.” I’ll take David Guetta and LMFAO any day over those two craptastic songs. I mean, “Only in America” is the worst, because Brooks and Dunn are the worst abusers of taking something patriotic and turning it into a commercial. It’s the theme of NASCAR that earns them a million bucks every time it’s played, for fuck sake. We should declare war on Brookes and Dunn for being terrorists.
Seriously, I think my Marine pal sitting next to me at the lake when both songs played back to back over the intercomm system said it best –
“I think it’s funny that they’re slowly killing my brain with that crap. Only in America will a group of people dispute your valid birth certificate because they hate you politically. Only in America will they racially profile every person on the street out of fear of losing our jobs. Only in America would a song this God awful be popular.”
LOL Thanks for the emails. I had a great weekend, and I thank all those fellow soldiers at the Halo Lounge who drank with me while staring at women in bikini tops and short shorts. Now that’s freedom.
