Let Freedom Ring

I wanted to write something inspirational on this lovely day where we remember those who started this great experiment we call the United States of America. I wanted to write beautifully about the Declaration of Independence and how we see it now, 233 years later.

I just don't think I have that kind of talent, or that kind of time, since we are headed to the lake shortly. But Mustang Bobby does. Read his thoughts and then, if you have time, read the Declaration. We aren't perfect, but we are the best experiment going.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July.

Happy Birthday America.

Isn't it amazing that we still use a document written well over two-hundred years ago as the centerpiece as to how our country functions? It's amazing to see the foresight the architects of our nation had back then. Not to mention, it has been the model for many other nations since.

I wish I could feel good about our country these days but I just can't.

our document is in tatters at the moment and Obama hasn't done much, if anything, to restore it. he's maintaining several of Bush's policies. I predicted this turn of events even as I hoped I was wrong back during the Bush years.
it's hard to give up power when it's handed to you on a silver plate. I used to hope Obama was big enough to do it.
