Welcome to the USA

I arrived on the western shores of California this morning for a very brief visit. Upon checking into the hotel I was handed the letter above, in a sealed, and personally addressed envelope. I was not travelling alone. But no one else was handed one. I am special.

And I am thrilled.

Not only am I being offered membership to this honourable sporting organisation (a five-year membership for only $100 – normally $140!!!!) but the opening line confirms that my citizenship (for which I had not yet got around to applying) has come through and I can now join FIVE MILLION NRA MEMBERS in the fight against ‘hundreds of gun-hating politicians, judges, radical billionaires and freedom-hating media elites. We have them outnumbered!

But wait …… there’s more! If I join today I get not only the gun bag (accessories, i.e. guns not included) but Your choice of an NRA magazine with ‘month after month of eye-popping photography, information-packed reviews of the HOTTEST new guns’. Wow! No more porn for me!

So it’s welcome to the USA for Brutus! Buddy, hand me the ammo!

      1. Nothing is free in the world. Especially here. But if you insist on experiencing the true American culinary experience then I would recommend ‘Fatburger’. One cannot help but admire the truth in advertising.

        I jest, though. This country is magnificent in many ways and has shown me great kindness over many years.

    I just recently came across this blog through the WP Reader. I’ve enjoyed several of his posts as he’s quite a writer. I’m share this particular post because it so clearly points out the wiles and deception of the NRA,
