Happy Fourth of July

Today is Independence Day. How apropos that I post my first message to this blog today. For those who ask “What are your bona fides?”, to that I reply, had the same been asked of Thomas Paine or Samuel Adams? Not that I consider myself worthy of the comparison or respect at this point, but someone has to take a stand. Today is the day we celebrate the blessings of our liberty. For most, it is an entitlement, a gift unearned. For those brave souls that 232 years ago pledged their sacred honour, their property, their lives, and the lives of their loved ones, I say thank you. Such men are rare indeed and today, nearly non-existent.
