I love this Country!


Thanks to God/HP for this wonderful country of ours! Thanks to our soldiers/veterans (alive and deceased) and their families who, over the years have fought to protect us and the freedoms we hold so dear! Thanks to whomever invented hot dogs and apple pie, ok and baseball. I love our country, I love that we can say what we want when we want; that we can go where we want, when we want; that we can worship whom or what we want, when we want; that we are pretty much free from government oppression (and that many, most people still think this is important); that because of our freedoms, AA was able to spring forth and give life to countless alcoholics here and around the world; that I can see $2.65 for a gallon of gas before lunch, and stop to buy it after lunch only to find it's been changed to $2.95; that under our constitution people of any race and ethnic background are free to become citizens and live to enjoy the same freedoms those of us who are born here can enjoy; that every two years (and especially every four years) I get to participate (as annoying as it is) in the election of our federal and state government officials.

I love my country, defects and all, it's still the best place in the world to live! God Bless America!!

Happy Independence Day, and peace to you all!
