Happy Independence Day!
Today is the 231st anniversery of the Declaration of Independence. Our founding fathers declared the 13 colonies independent of Great Britain on this day in history.
I believe the founding fathers would be appalled at the current state of events today. Our defense forces are burned out by a war without end. Religion is steadily creeping back into our governments with the Christianist Taliban trying to impose their religious beliefs on own our private lives. How would the founding fathers feel about the current president commuting the prison sentence of a traitor? Yes, that is what Scooter Libby is, a traitor. Or how would they feel about a Vice President who has declared himself his own branch of government?
Some things to think about today.
