Happy 4th of July!



Take some time off.

Go for a ride...

...but remember why we
commemorate this day:
this country's escape from the
tyranny of the oppressive
government of Great Britain.

Some interesting information you may not know, from Archiving Early America, Wikipedia, and the following blog:

Ironic, isn't it?  Our own federal government has now become our oppressor.

By the way, the oppression of the time, and how and why the founders escaped it, is described starting in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence

It is well to reread this if your political science has become rusty.  A few changed words would make it applicable to today.
