About the Book:

In 2013, freedom of speech and expression are merely theoretical concepts, so he calms his unruly and not so politically correct thoughts and lets the words of those long hairs from Jacksonville soothe his soul, because that, hell this ain’t his America. “Sometimes I wished they’d tell me how justice got so blind. I wish they’d leave me alone ‘cause I’m doing alright. You can take your change on down the road. And leave me here with mine.” Not a day goes by he doesn’t feel that in his bones. Just the same as he feels the chorus, “Cause that ain’t my America, that ain’t this country’s roots. You wanna slam ol’ Uncle Sam but I ain’t letting you. I’m mad as hell and you know I still bleed red, white and blue. That ain’t us, that ain’t my America, that ain’t my America.” It’s that paradox that makes him a thoroughly dangerous man. While this ain’t his America, he still has the will and determination for it to be again. No matter how much it beats him down.
