Dear Brazil, WTF? We Treated You Like Family

nannystate.jpgFor the last thousand years or so, the United States has led the world on its March toward Freedom with such unique innovations as the free market and the three-fifths compromise and the Snuggie, only to find that sometimes the Free World just cold stabs us in the back or otherwise tragically refuses to embrace our awesomeness.

"Four of the biggest and most strategically important democracies in the developing world – Brazil, India, South Africa and Turkey – are increasingly at odds with American foreign policy." --Financial Slimes

(Now, if they made one with mittens, I might be sold...)

It's a blanket with sleeves. A slanket, in other words.
