Happy 4th of July

DSC_0083Here’s what today is about.

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

I wish you all a happy day. I thank you for your participation in this blog. All of you have taught me much more than I ever thought possible. The discussion has been without rancor or hurt with a desire to learn. Participants have included doctors and flappers, teachers and scrappers, persons who won’t lie down or be brainwashed.

Our goal always has been to make the United States a nation where all are treated equally by our government and accorded what is set forth in our Bill of Rights. We seek to remind our government to keep in mind it exists to serve us and not to tell us what to do. If it fails, we may withdraw our consent.

Tomorrow as promised I will talk about Weeks’s upcoming testimony; Saturday is the Whitey Weekend Wrap where I’ll give you my thoughts on the case and the machine gun evidence; and Sunday back to the Naimovich story, the part of that story which I have written I published earlier today.

What are you doing reading this? Get away from the computer. Go out and celebrate the freedom that we still have and be thankful you can do it.

  1. Happy Fourth Matt. That such a generation of individuals – Jefferson, Washington, Adams, Hamilton, Franklin, etc – was possible is still a thing at which to marvel.

    Thank you for running this blog. And thanks to the many commenters. Though Matt correctly praises the Internet for its unprecedented contribution to the free exchange of ideas, the Internet has more than its share of yahoos screaming away in the comments sections of news articles, blogs, etc. But not this blog. I don’t think I’ve come across a blog with such a dedicated following of reasonable, well-informed, open-minded readers.

    And if we get staid with cold reasoning, William or Neal always step up with good colorful commentary 🙂

  2. jon i agree, once in a blue moon ill read some comments in the globe and its either spam or ppl who took too many meds before their check arrives! lol but i digress Happy 4th of july, i truly enjoy this blog and get the unbiased truth here, which shows how wrong the lame stream mwdia is when they have an agenda. i cant wait to the bbq starts monday so we get to see the hand writing expertise of kevin weeks, seriously? maybe he could dig a grave or sucker punch a guy but now his word or eyes are credible?

    1. PAT2E:

      Weeks was good at both of those things, maybe a little better at sucker punching, he told last trial how some guy said “f.u.” to him and he knocked him down. He wants to be a tough guy but also a guy who is good at grave digging. He has to keep his options open. It will be fascinating seeing the reaction of both former buddies when Weeks starts talking about Deborah Hussey.

  3. Matt- Happy 4th of July, hope to discuss with you some of what we are to expect Monday. God Bless
