I love spending time on Facebook just like you because there is something interesting or funny in almost every post. I found a post on my timeline from Steven Anglin that I thought was pretty awesome because whoever wrote this had to put some thought into it.

It’s called “12 Reasons Why You Might Live in a Country Founded by Geniuses But Run by Idiots.” I added some photos to it to spruce it up just a little, I hope you enjoy it.
