America was built on three things: God, freedom, and industry. And what is industry? Industry is good honest labor. It’s the sweat of your brow, the smoke in your lungs, the mercury and other trace elements finding their way into your bones until they become brittle and snap.
Industry is our way of making sure life expectancy doesn’t creep too high. It gives up highways and strip mines and dams to clog up our pristine waters, and turns our sunsets a blazing orange with its pollution.
So, when you’re crippled in a wheelchair barely able to breathe or move, shed a tear for America and give thanks to the industry that made it great!
