hey, on a day like today, when we're finally getting a little much needed rain, the grass is so green and the birds are happy. the weather is mild for texas, seventy something outside, and the boys and i have big plans to spend the day giving thanks for the life we've been blessed with.

cause lets face it, under most other forms of government i'd have been incarcerated a long ass time ago. can you imagine little ole me as an arab? as a communist? as a somalian? i'd have my hands chopped off at a minimum, prolly more likely, my head.

yes life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. (please understand government dependents: the pursuit is guaranteed, happiness is not guaranteed.) i've never been a destination centered person anyhow, it's always been about the roadtrip for me. afterall, i sell maps for a living. it's the pursuit and the freedom.

damn, my creator is a badass. happy birthday, USA! thank you God for your endowment, and thank you US military for your insurance. there's no place like home.

i wish i could play you the theme to "team america world police" now. i still can't upload music so i'll just sing you the good part:
"America, oh yeah!!
coming again to save the mother fucking day now,
America, fuck YEAH!
freedom is the only way now"

have a happy fourth of july, peeps! and around the world, try to imagine oppression free living. uh huh, we the it.

and it really only takes living in another country for a few months to make you realize what all this one offers.

The others might be fun, but this is home. And this is the home so many want to come to.

People like you are part of the reason.
