This Post is Dedicated to my Third Wife (Don’t worry: she knows who she is)
And to my English Girlfriend (she knows who she is too). When asked by some American, “Do you celebrate the ‘Fourth of July’ in England? She always responds with a ‘washing of hands’ bit. Yep! Good Riddance! Hahahah! Gotta love them English!
I have spent the better part of the last three days watching documentaries and other stuff about the birth of my nation.
Documentaries about Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Washington, et al.
I proudly served my country
“The Cowards Never Started and the Weak Died Along the Way”
I love my Country. I am a patriot. I rant. I rail. I even disparage our government.
But, If you mark my country for ill, Or Speak Ill, I will…
‘Till no breath resides in my breast.
And… that is a fact, Jack.
The rest is just hyperbole,

Reblogged this on Texan Tales & Hieroglyphics and commented:
Now… well I have to re-blogg this one (and I do promise) wink wink I am gonna post some new… real soon. (And the chick, er check, is in the mail: call UPS) Meantime… try to enjoy, or at least humor me, or at least watch even one of the vids.
I do believe I wrote a post on this very subject.
Perhaps you’ve seen it?
Thanks for your visit Anon. I appreciate your comments too.
Yeah, but “when you’re down on your luck, and you ain’t got a buck, in London you’re a goner.”
Gotta love John Adams!
One of my favorite quotes from “1776”: “One man is a disgrace, two men are a law firm, and three or more become a congress… and BY GOD, I have had this congress!”
