It's All About Freedom and Liberty
Monday, July 03, 2006
Well, tomorrow is the Fourth of July when millions of people who have absolutely no idea why or how this country was created go out and celebrate its creation.

Sorry a little cynical today. It doesn't help that I Tivo'd this great multi-part special on the History Channel about the Revolution. I'm sure it's going to be on again (probably about 10 times over the next month or two), so you may want to check it out. I'm a huge history buff and this special is so incredibly well done. I tells the honest reasons and events of our fight for an independent nation versus the crap you get in elementary school.

More importantly, it highlights issues that to this day we struggle with and hopefully will enlighten folks as to the true nature of being an American.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast.

    I'm also a history buff, and will have to try and catch that program. Thank god for TiVo! Without it, I'd miss so many great shows (Like "Going Tribal" - have you checked that show out?).

    Anyway, happy 4th of July! I hope you guys have a great one!
