Happy Fourth!

Tough times, but our flag is still there and long may it wave. Nil desperadum – never despair. And never give in.

It Ain't Over.

    According to the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when Benjamin Franklin was leaving Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation he was asked, “Well Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

    Now it’s up to us!

    My grandfather on my mother’s side of my family came over on the boat from Greece. On my father’s side, we’ve been here since 1650 and a relative was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention as well as one of Maryland’s first governors. Throw some Irish and Italian in the mix and you got me, and that’s what this place is all about. Yesterday I had a long argument, in Greek (I live in Greece) with a guy who called us a bastard race with no ethnic identity. If he were any more jealous of the greatest people in history I would have had to call him the Green Lantern.

    Andrew if you read the comments then this is for you, since I could not find how to leave you some email. Obama is the Commander in Chief, and the US Navy owns Alvin DSV-2, its web page is here: http://www.whoi.edu/page.do?pid=8422. This sub is capable of taking three people down to about 15,000 feet and it has two robotic arms. Now, if that Commander in Chief would do something, and order the sub down to the gulf, and get it together with some of the folks that capped the wells in Iraq, I am sure the oil spill problem would be taken care of in just a few days. Oh and don’t forget our inept president said something like there is nothing I can do except talk to the experts at BP.

    Wemedge – he’s right. Americans’ identidy is not ethnic, it is philosophic. We are the nation of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; of reason, freedom, individualism and capitalism. That’s why everyone can come here and it doesn’t matter who or what you are. Accept those ideas, and you’re as American as anyone descended from Constitutional Convention delegates :-)
