The sad thing is....if you simply forced all cigarette companies to remove all chemicals in tobacco and make them nature-free....then ninety percent of folks could quit smoking within a year. But who would pay all the taxes associated with chemically-dependent smokes?
The sad thing is....most Americans can't tell you where Libya, Venezuela, North Korea or Cuba are located on a map.

The sad thing is.....more Americans have attended a college football game than have attended a single city hall or county commission meeting once in their life.

The sad thing is....more folks run out of gas on the highway each and every day.....than run out of toilet paper in their house each day.
The sad thing is....from the vast crowd of anti-American folks throughout the world who let you know daily that they are anti-American.....have a very short list of who to call if a Earthquake, tidal wave, meteor or invasion came to face their country. In fact, it's just one listed nation that they would call. You can guess which one.
