As the great Will McAvoy once said, (character from HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ ) “America is not the greatest country in the world but it can be”. Here is his epic speech, in it’s entirety.
In the land of the free and the home of the brave, there are more types of illegal cheese than are types of illegal guns. Unfortunately, guns will be legal for a very long time to come but it’s quite absurd that it’s easier to get an automatic weapon than to get a block of St Agur (illegal cheese from France). I’m glad the FDA is doing there job but something is clearly wrong with this picture. If America wants to be the greatest country in the world, than we need to start paving the way to for a country with peace. We should strive to be a country where you do not have to be worried about your child being in danger at school, whether it be elementary or college; a country where there isn’t a US-made product that has a primary use of killing and ruining families; and a country where cops do not shoot innocent people. People of America, it’s up to us if we want to be the greatest country in the world, so let’s start acting like it.
