I admit - I love America. I love the country, the people, the diversity, the food, the craziness. I know it has its faults but in general I love it. Except for one major thing. Guns.

By staying home, you're winning at life. You're protesting the system, man. Refusing to feed the machine. No one will know you're protesting of course, because even heat-sensing helicopters won't be able to detect you under nine blankets, but who cares. You know.

As a parent of one child I thought I had everything under control. Baby sleeps through the night? Check. Baby eats a variety of vegetables and interesting textures? Of course.
