Don’t come back home. America has changed. You will no longer recognize the place. Land of the free and home of the brave? Not if you’re a woman or any ethnicity other than white. But on the plus side, ain’t nobody going to take away your precious guns now.

For a small glimmer of hope though, read this article. Tim’s blog posts are always well-researched and thought-provoking. I don’t agree with every point, but there’s enough here to at least make me not entirely go off the deep end. Or if you really need to be talked down off the ledge, there’s always this one from our friends at Cracked.
