Independence Day

July 4th is the day that the declaration of independence was signed in 1776. It is now 2007 231 years and counting. If it was tough to celebrate a proud day in America's history it really didn't seem to show. it seemed like almost every other 4th of July that I had ever been to. People really didn't seem interested in what was going on in Iraq, or why we were there in the first place. Or that the Democrats who were swept into Congress can't seem to stop the war. I suppose that it doesn't really matter as for the day, it is a celebration after all.

It was nice that every one had the day off, and that is such a rare thing. Well almost everyone. To those of you who rang up my beer, I salute you. I hope you got holiday pay too.
