Happy Holidays

Posting will be a bit light over the next few days of the holiday season.

Indiana rock star John Mellencamp's song "Our Country" has been used as the theme for many Chevrolet truck commercials. The song is played over a photo montage of Americans for a feel-good patriotic commercial. Of course, there are several spoofs of these commercials on youtube.

The first video directly spoofs the commercial and has a "Vote Democratic" message.

The second one lists many atrocities in which the US government and people have been involved. This is a 3 minute video and is not for the faint of heart.

The second one was more an accurate portrait of this land and how far we hve strayed.
