Today's Deep Thought
Is in this Twitter picture:
The small print says "Made in China."
Most likely Obama's campaign giveaways (if any) are also made in China.
The deep thought this picture obviously elicits has to do with reality smashing straight against that "rah-rah-we're-number-one" type of patriotism. The latter can be all rainbows and butterflies and pretense and it still seems to work. Reality is a bit different, given that most everything I see in the stores (even in food stores) comes from China, these days.
