American Life is actually the American Lie! This should be obvious to any teenager who wants to look cool, whereby cool means looking cool to foreigners, because they, since they're not here, have decided to stay in their backwards countries, and therefore need something to convince themselves they don't want to be here. The crotch presidency (Bush, Colin, Dick), the hawks, dot-com bubble burst, Conditism on TV, Reality TV, etc. is certaitnly giving them enough fuel these days.
NO, but wait, this was a consumer alert. In the chorus for Madonna's Single, "American Life," she actually says "American Lie" not "American Life." I turned up the volume, and indeed, I can't hear an f, AND she says that "nothing is what it seems." Neat.
