A Telegram to USA

Axis of Ævil - an US Citizen living abroad - wants to send a telegram back home:

I dream sometimes about a big, thick, juicy porterhouse steak and cornbread. I crave food, folks and fun but, in spite of whatever the US media crackheads have been smoking to report 'the world being safer' thanks to the US military, out here in reality I'm just not sure that my desire to visit home exceeds my desire to not get in the way of some wackos when tensions are clearly on the rise.

...PLEASE START ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT SHIT THAT MATTERS LIKE EDUCATION, ECONOMICS AND MAKING NICE WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD NOW THAT EVERYONE HATES US AND MOST OF US LIVING OUTSIDE THE US PRETEND TO BE CANADIANS WHEN ASKED...

I'm never quite sure if you're taking the piss or not but I'm seriously scared to try and visit home before the election. Granted, not many terrorists would be heading to St. Louis, but I'll be heading for Boston through NYC for a week before going to one of the flyover states so I'm less enthused. I have nightmares about either getting trapped in the US after an attack or winding up in Gitmo with no phonecall or lawyer as the recent legislation will allow them to do even to US citizens. Not to mention that amplification of annoyance that entering the US will bring with the fear machine on full tilt and the elections bringing every nutter out of the woodwork. My inner conflict is rather oppressive, but the world is nuts and the US mail delivers, even to Finland. Maybe for Christmas.

I believe you. That's why I linked to it - I'm pretty sure you're not the only one.
