There’s Gold in Them Hills!

In the old days our ancestors came to this country and were welcomed with a beautiful woman who stood proudly over the harbor with a flowing robe and standing with steadfastness with a golden torch as if she was telling all , “Welcome to the greatest country on earth!” Those who saw her knew that this was a place where they could be safe, could practice the religion of their choice and freedom would allow them to do what they want to do and live how they want to live.

Fast forward to today. That dream is very much alive and still rings true. Yes, Lady Liberty stands firm over the seemingly endless skyline. But some things have changed over time. Visitors are still greeted by a woman, and yes she is also adorned in gold, but it may not be what you expected. Instead of a torch, we get headlights. Instead of a robe, we get a 5 inch area of satin. Yes, welcome to the new America. Europeans say we are a bit close-minded when it comes to public nudity, but you wouldn’t know it from the first impression. It is, in a sense Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The happiness of men I guess.
