You Can Do Anything You Want!

"You can do anything you want."

Those are powerful words. It's the American way. If you just apply yourself to something, you can make it happen. For the most part, it's true and it's what makes our country great. However, the other day I was thinking about that phrase and the fact that it has a double meaning.

"You can do anything you want."

No one can tell you what you can or cannot do because you can do anything you want. This is America and no one should be able to get in your way of doing anything...anything! No one can tell you what to do with an unborn fetus. You can do anything you want. No one can tell you that your lifestyle is wrong and damaging to the rest of society. You can do anything you want.

Of course, there's a double standard today as the government regularly tells us what we can and cannot do. I'm just rambling, I know. It could be worse, I could try to formulate my thoughts in the form of a Haiku.

Please don't do Haiku.

It really makes me crazy.

So just don't go there.

Hey "Some Guy", that was brilliant. I remember Conan saying that a few weeks ago before NBC pulled the plug on him. I'm a HUGE Conan fan. Still have the "I'm With COCO" image as the desktop picture on my computer.
