July 4th is here and it's a good time to think about America.

Let's celebrate our July 4th freedom with a game called, "What Is Going On Right Now in America?"

The city of Los Angeles is under massive construction, beginning now with widespread destruction of streets, roads, and freeways.

Now that's a deal.

Obviously, these city works have been in the works for years, but perhaps behind closed business doors where power brokers plan the city and thus decide for us all exactly what kind of town we live in.
