Where have all the cowboys (girls) gone?

Have I mentioned that it seems the wild west is dead? Literally, of course it’s gone. But mentally, figuratively, shouldn’t the spirit live on? I think rodeo attendees and participants might think they’re carrying on the dream, but come on. It’s a disney version of the west. I think bikers and outlaws think they’re carrying on the tradition of Jesse James and Billy the Kid – but it seems there’s no honor left in the outlaws of today. With drugs and human trafficing, there’s no romance in the wild now.
And maybe that’s okay. But I think that’s how America is losing it’s balls, too. We’re either sanitized, or way too dirty. A man can’t seem to loose the bonds of society without slipping too far into the fringe. We’ve lost what made us awesome in the first place. But, we’re still more badass than most European nations, so…that’s something.
