  2. So today we celebrate the day we declared freedom from Great Britain. We now send our warriors around the world to bring freedom to others: We call them freedom-fighters.

    The late and much missed George Carlin posed the following. We have crime-fighters who fight crime. We have fire-fighters who fight fires. We have freedom-fighters who???

  3. From Bush’s speech at today’s naturalization ceremony at Monticello…. Where he was heckled.. 🙂

    “When you raise your hands and take your oath, you will complete an incredible journey. … From this day forward, the history of the United States will be part of your heritage.”

    Yeah, even the torture, the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and all the nasty slime the Bush administration has smeared on our proud history. I wonder if Bush was giving the new citizens a chance to back out, or just warning them that the stink if his disgrace will be stuck to them once they’re sworn in.

    Happy 4th of July, everybody!
