It’s Friday before a three-day weekend.
On Monday we celebrate our Independence Day.
I don’t care what you say, who you are, what you think this will always be the best ding dang doggie country
in the history of the world.
I love America.
Warts and all.
And if you don’t like me saying that, you can go post about it on your own blog.
It’s also a Friday and my book has sold well to friends and family. If you haven’t purchased it’s there for you on Amazon.
If you have purchased, please go back and leave a review. It helps. Bigly.
Before we get to the fireworks, I’ll do a little bit of celebrating of my own.
I turn 64 on Sunday and I’m one step, one feeble step, closer to retirement.
That’s all I’ve got for today.
I’ll be back on Tuesday.

The Silent Majority Returns in Grand Style
Shaun Kenney at The Republican Standard
Forget The Handmaid’s Tale — if you want true Orwellian nonsense, consider for a moment that we live in a society that can pressure an entire population into calling men women, and women men. Or calling babies a lifeless clump of cells. Or sexualizing children with Drag Queen Story Hour and calling that healthy. Or redefining marriage. Or calling a color-blind society racism. One that can destroy history, rename schools, disarm citizens, or force medical treatment against your will. Read More.
