#459 “A New Nation & A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”

From Jeremy in Nashville, Tennessee

At a glance it seems like these two pictures from Jeremy may not have much in common; however, in light of recent national events, I would say that there’s actually quite an interesting link between the two that make them applicable to all Americans.

The fact that we’re basically begging Russia to deliver Snowden to us with assurances that we won’t kill or torture him is an extraordinary statement about the recent history of this country.
