My New Shirt

I bought a t-shirt at Target today for $5. They had a bunch of patriotic type shirts on sale and I picked this one for decidedly different reasons than the manufacturer probably intended.

You've all seen those shirts that say something like "Property of Yale Athletic Department" and other such nonsense. This one says, "Property Of The United States Of America" and it has the eagle in the middle clutching the olive branches and the arrows.

I decided to buy the shirt as a type of political protest. Because of recent Supreme Court rulings, constant attempts to steal our liberty, and the IRS, I feel more and more like I am the property of the United States of America rather than a free citizen of it.

Our government no longer answers to the people, we answer to them.

So, I'm going to wear my new shirt on Monday, July 4th, 2005. Sadly, I doubt anyone will get it unless I explain it to them.
