    On July 4th, I am reminded of my trip to D.C.  I went to the National Archives to see the Declaration, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.  Despite many verbal warnings and about 9 signs to turn your flashes off, some moron teen snapped a flash, damaging the documents of our freedom.  Then I went to the Lincoln Monument and some mouth breathing chick looked upon the Gettysburg Address and declared “Who said that?”  Her equally useless friend said “Thomas Jefferson.”  Then I went to the Korean War memorial and despite a couple signs reading “Coins stain the fountain”, several window lickers pitched their coins in the pool for the Freedom Fairy low dose cialis cost to grant them their magic wishes.  Combined w/ our horrible politicians (both parties, idealists) stealing our money and freedoms, I was pretty much fire pissed at that point.  Then we went to the Vietnam War Memorial and I saw my Dad find one of his HS classmates, a father, who was decapitated by a helicopter blade.  My father’s emotion at that dark black wall made me realize that as long as one is willing to fight for freedom, there is hope for all of us.  Thomas Jefferson said, “The only death a democracy can die is by its own hand.”  As long as we have people who realize that the history of humanity is one of oppression and our naton was founded upon the revolutionary ideas that we as individuals don’t have to bow to a government, tyrant, or monarch, then we will survive and thrive.  God bless all those who fight for freedom.  It is a fleeting whisper in the ear of human history.  This country was founded on a dream.  We haven’t been perfect, but we are closer in the USA than any other nation has been in the course of humanity.  People who bitch that we suck are short sighted boobs at best.  Jefferson also said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”  Today, remember our patriots and oppose the tyrants.  “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” – George Washington.  Well said, sir.  “Agitate, young man, agitate.” – Frederick Douglass.  Oppose the “norm.”  Never let anyone curb your freedoms, never take freedom for granted.  Happy Birthday America.
