    100 Greatest Things About America

    By CNN... if that gives you any hope. Here are my favorites and why I served my country.... to keep these things alive

    http://features.blogs.fortune.cnn.co...merica-part-1/

    13. Slam dunks
    22. Delivery pizza
    27. Monopoly
    29. M&M's
    30. Facebook
    33. The Simpsons
    43. Fantasy football
    51. Slip 'N Slide
    61. Flip flops
    68. Charles Barkley
    74. The Tiffany box
    97. Escalators - symbolic of America's laziness
    100. Bendy straws


    "I'm proud to be an American" for all of these reasons listed above.

    In all honesty though, I hope you all have a great 4th of July, great time with family, remembering the sacrifices those before us have made to make this country what it is and having the courage to make us free. As bad as it may be right now, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

    I'm sure the 101st thing on CNN's list was the Lee Classic Turret Press.

    2. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights
    9. BBQ and American Beer. (should be #3)

    Actually, 101 was pretty funny. They had Charlie Brown listed, and wished him luck making the list next year.

    Good Grief!
