    The wife and kids are on the way to Panama City right now, going to hang out at the beach, while I am stuck here in worksville. All is not too bad though as all of my managers should be working today and I will come home to enjoy a beer or two.

    While I was putting RePete, the five-year-old, to bed last night we discussed July Fourth and the fact that it is considered the official birthday of our country. When I told her that the United States of America is now 232 years old she said, “wow, that’s even older than you…”
    By the way, I am testing out FriendFeed integration into the site, so if the comments look wonky or the process gets screwed up, that is why. I just added the necessary code to my templates but I am not 100% sure I got it right…

    • Happy Birthday America

      This great nation proclaimed its independence in 1776 and fought the British to gain just that. We became a nation in 1781 with the Articles of Confederation. Our new nation recognized that the form of government needed fine tuning and a Constitution…

      I hope your wife and kids have a blast in PC, FL. There is a small town just north of there called Lynn Haven where my maternal great-grandparents resided after their retirement. My maternal grandparents also chose to reside in Lynn Haven upon their retirement so I’ve been summering in that area starting when I was a baby. I even lived in Lynn Haven for a couple of years while attending Gulf Coast Community College and then Florida State. I have fond memories of the two best-known amusement parks there; Peticoat Junction and Miracle Strip Amusement Park. Both are now gone.

    • CURRENTLY READING: “The Grace Awakening” by Charles R. Swindoll

      I’ve been reading this book by Charles Swindoll in my spare time (what little I have) and have been enjoying it. It’s been teaching me about God’s Grace from the Bible and how God’s Grace applies to a believer’s life. I haven’t finished it yet nor do I…

    • NYT: Successes Against Suicide Bombers Creates Them

      One of my little morning habits is, after getting up, brushing the teeth, putting on the coffee, I go outside, have a smoke, and check my Crackberry, then the news on my Blackjack. Imagine my surprise when the top story from the NY Times mobile went as…


      Well I took yesterday off, sometimes you have to take a break from the news because its just so damn depressing.  With the revenue I lost due to no postings yesterday, I will have to cut that weekly pack of chewing gum out of this weeks budget, bu…

    • About Obama’s Citizenship

      I’ve seen it buzzing around the internet for several weeks now — suggestions that Barack Obama is not actually an American citizen at all. In the last 24 hours, I’ve seen that suggestion appear again, on two websites that I…

    • Grandparents Of Robber Condemn Shooting Of Grandson By His Would-Be Victim

      About ten years ago, a student from my high school was killed in a robbery. There was outrage over the incident — especially over the fact that the man who admitted killing the teen was never arrested or prosecuted for…

    • The Arrogance Of Andrew Sullivan

      Let’s be honest about something. Andrew Sullivan hates two things with a passion — American conservatives and orthodox Christians. The death of Jesse Helms (which this conservative chooses not to mark at all, having never been a particular fan) allowe…

    • July the Second

      [T]he Continental Congress actually declared independence two days earlier when the Lee Resolution was adopted by twelve of the thirteen colonies.


      There’s a few other new one’s at the D=S store, but I thought this one too good not to share.  Great for the conservative and great as a gag gift for that confused liberal in your life.

      Would the Founders Be Proud?

      Podcast Show Notes
      While more than 1,000 U.S. Troops show their patriotism on Independence Day, a liberal blogger questions whether it would be better if Americans had remained part of Europe. (Hat Tip: Instapundit.) Meanwhile Americans question whethe…
