    As our nation was founded in despite of mad Georgius Rex, so it will flourish in despite of modern George Wrecks.

    :rofl: I obviously meant George III, the object of the declaration in the OP. Though it does work both ways - this great country deserves much better than either George.

    From north of the 49th (about the 50th), happy birthday!

    Wow, north Alaska! What's that like in the winter?

    edit: Oops, I thought you meant the 49th state (Alaska), turns out you meant Manitoba apparently. My mistake.

    We just idd some fireworks in the front yard with the family... wasn't that good. We really need an electronic ignition system... but then we'd probably want to do 5 at the same time or one really long one and it'll probably cost $500 to have fireworks going on for as long as we go right now with the single lightings.

    Its not GW that worries me... Its what got him elected that keeps my nose pointed north.

    I think we should burn every flag and replace each with a copy of the Constitution. I don't know what the flag represents anymore, but it ain't the America I love.

    The other day an obvious right-winger commented that the government should be able to do whatever they want. "If you haven't done anything wrong then you have nothing to worry about".

    Did this guy grow up in the old Soviet or China? When did this happen? How did this happen? Those were the words of the enemy when I grew up.

    Frankly, if I could be gone now I would be. But the option of leaving for another country is not a practical reality right now.

    I can only hope that Americans come to their senses before all is lost to the mindless ferver of pseudo-patriotism. of course if things get much worse we will be running for the border in spite of family.

    A couple SC decisions have been a little encouraging, but statements like that above shows me that America has lost her soul.
