Ted Rall for March 17, 2008
We Americans like to keep our options open. What do you think about open relationships? Take torture. We say we don't do it. We do seriously bother and/or annoy. But we've made it legal, just in case. We only wear BDSM gear as a precaution. Another example is nuclear weapons. Eat tritium Senegalese bastard! We deserve the right to launch a first strike. But we won't do it. Probably. 'Course, nothing stops us from testing a nuke... On an enemy city. Then there's voting. Do voting stations have beer? Do they have girls? If so, I might vote while I'm there.
