This was in the LA Times today. Nice little article, has a pretty rendition of a song linked, but the text that makes up the body of it is exponentially more important.

If you are feeling really patriotic, I also suggest this and this.

Now more than ever...We must all hang together, or we most assuredly will all hang separately.

So the combination is 1-2-3-4-5. That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! That's the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!- Dark Helmet; "Live free or die. Death is not the worst of evils." - Gen. John Stark; "Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it." -Robert Frost; "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." - Samuel Adams, Brewer/Patriot

The entire Federalist Papers? You're not one for light reading are you? :P

Personally, I say we send the complete works of Thomas Paine to the Glenn Beck fans and hope they apoplexy when they get to the parts where he advocates the government pays a living wage to those too old to work and a 100% inheritance tax on all land and wealth. :lol:

Anyone who knows me knows I am a reader. A good 20% of my phone's memory is loaded up with e-books. But I never said you had to read all of that right now. That'd just be ridiculous :P I'm talking something to plunk in between until the next favorite author of choice publishes their next book in the series is all.

Also I don't think Glenn Beck could Handle Thomas Paine :lol:

For your astonishment.

Well it was not astonishing, but it was amusing, though perversely so like when the guy who cuts you off in a line of traffic gets T-boned by a pickup truck because he blew through the light.

Yeah I did read a few pages of the preview, and I hold firmly to my original contention; he couldn't handle Thomas Paine :P Just because he ripped off the title and some snippets from Mr. Paine doesn't mean that bad parody he "wrote" deserves to be on the same shelf.

I have a poster of the Declaration hanging in my room. Thanks, US Navy or whoever tried to recruit me and included it in the letter. I'll never join you but I love the poster and do read it on occasion.

I got a nice parchment copy from Philip Morris as a kid.
