Yes, c'mon Boss. This battle has been won. No enemy left but a few defiant boomers puffing pathetically on the streets in January. Nothing left to do but harass small town Red America. Even they are fast replacing the evenings of coffee and cigarettes with a tub of Hagen Däaz.

Can't you pick on some overweight Ivy League secularists?

Red staters don't eat Hagen Daaz (or Ben and Jerrys), we eat Blue Bell. Keep your European and New England Hippy confections out of our country.
