Eff the Homeland

I've been listening to everyone from Bush on down talking about protecting the Homeland, and after 6 long fucking years I've had it.

I DO NOT HAVE A HOMELAND. I LIVE IN THE US. I AM AN AMERICAN.

We didn't even have a homeland. I think it's lame to always reach for the Nazi comparison with the Bush Administration, but all of a sudden calling the US a 'Homeland' is one straight out of the Nazi playboock.

What's more I don't think I'm alone. I've NEVER heard an American talk about their homeland -- it's 100% a Bush Administration construct.
