The 100 Meter Empire

The United States reminds me of a 100 meter hurdler.

The U.S. doesn’t win the race, because it knocks over

everyone of the hurdles.

Everyone of those hurdles represents countries the

U.S. has invaded.

In the end, the U.S. wins by colonizing, because that

is the nature of every Empire.

Capitalism from the barrel of a gun.

The Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming, and it

won’t be over until it’s over over there.

Or, something like that…

” Charging a man with murder in this place,

is like handing out speeding tickets at the

Indy 500.”
