Wow, this really makes me feel better about today's headlines.

And none of today's candidates carry cane swords. I might pay more attention if they did.

Oh words! :O Violent presidents from long ago. Instead of band I ended up taking a Criminal Law class, where we're forced to learn about the elections and whatnot.
We're probably the shadiest government in the world. We should give up our land to Sweden, and then we could be happy. Eating chocolate and pancakes and doing nothing. :) That'd be nice.
It's agreed, though--sword-canes would make awesome elections. REALLY AWESOME ELECTIONS! ^.^
But that's probably illegal. I don't really pay attention (typical high schooler, probably...). Giving our land to Sweden is probably also illegal. Again, I wouldn't really know. But somebody with a sword-cane might get really irritated if we gave our land to Sweden, even though chocolates and pancakes are delicious. (mmmmmm....)
SO, anyway, yeah. The US was very violent. Now we're shady. Therefore, no one cares about politics anyway because they're all rigged*. (false internet theory scare beginning? I think so!!! :D )

*Please reference the 'I am a high schooler who doesn't pay attention, hence, I don't know anything. This was not a true fact, none of this is factual. Thank you have a fantastic day and stay golden whoever you are!!! :)

beyond all said and done the very structure of debt seems remaining an unexpired period of. That's the focus right now, as it should be, as far as the nation's debt is concerned, apart from that of mine own ;O
No matter who is elected to rule the country in the future we should not be too tolerant of it while tending to overlooking the overall picture can have fatal consequences on a wider "golden" scale in some years from now.

I've just received it today in the mail and immediately gone through all pages till the end (Thanks, Ma, for sending it to me). Maybe it was a bit short, but enough to make it all worthwhile to read in a huge gulp. As far as the content of the graphic novel is concerned, it could not equally be better illustrated than it's title "BIG BAD IRONCLAD." I really enjoyed reading it and so true. To my astonishment, although naval officers made decisions very quickly at armory, I miss the point why a group of volunteers of union soldiers was not dedicated to build a second more elaborated "Monitor," a bigger one, at least as big as Merrimack, immediately after the naval fight between both sides was just taking place. A neat, even a painless strategy to hedge its bet would be to have done it. Apart from that, I would myself likely consider in his brilliant analyses throughout the war that he was the initiator and mental equivalent of what I would really see as a fox to the union of pretty much everything that happened during the war ;)so all in all a very good graphi novel, nicely paced and well demonstrated. A definitive must-read for NOVEL fans. I am just giving full 5 stars.
