Happy Fourth of July

I was in Boston last week and I walked the freedom trail.  I got to see some important sights of the revolution.  I don’t think many understand how insulting the Declaration of Independence was to the English King and the risks involved with signing it.  Coming from a position of that his right to rule comes derictly from God, it would be insulting that common or vulgar people, most likely sent to the colonies because they couldn't fit in with decent society, be so bold as to dare say this power was self determined. Saying so is treason and signing a document saying so is treason that must be publicly punished. I know few people that would go to their CEO and say “You aren’t so smart and I think we could do better”.  Imagine saying that to an 18th century King that is also the head of the church. Look what happened when the people in Libya did just this.  So enjoy the 4th. If you see a person in uniform, buy them lunch, beer, or an ice cream cone.
