There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Could post a somber and haunting tune.

But no. We're siblings. Bicker sometimes, fight some times - and so damned what. When it comes down to the skinny - we are brothers. So thank you. All of you. Happy 238th birthday.

You thought you were getting away without the music .....

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

The local ward will have a breakfast in the morning. In the evening, the local fire department and police department has agreed to join us. They will be bringing their fire trucks and the police cars.We want them to participate in the festivities and show them they are appreciated. There will also be a fireworks show that I paid 25% of the cost. Everyone pays for the rest.The kids like fire trucks and the police cars. Do not worry everything is privately paid for.

Going to add one more - the real heroes, in my book.

You go in, you do the job. There is a risk and you know it. The people who stay behind got no idea if you'll be pulling breathe tomorrow. Easy to forget that most of the people who fought so hard to create the USA had amazing people like this waiting.

Besides - the video will make you smile.
