Bloviating Zeppelin: Our Freedoms

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Our Freedoms

We live in a stunningly-blessed country.

But in my opinion a number of us need to be reminded of our freedoms and their reason for existence.

I write this for my 4th of July post, predicated upon the remarkable ignorance of the Left and the Demorats when it comes to our freedoms and how hard-fought they are -- as if this country simply sprung up one day out of some unknown beneficent well.

As if thousands and thousands of our soldiers weren't killed in two World Wars. Not simply to protect our freedom, but world freedom as well.

As if those British souls didn't brave the mighty Atlantic Ocean in order to escape religious oppression in their home country.

As if Americans didn't fight British soldiers on now-US soil in order to achieve independence.

As if the first words to the US Constitution aren't "We the people. . ."

As if people in my direct family line didn't fight on behalf of those attempting to rid America of slavery.

As if this nation isn't the finest "experiment in progress" on the entire planet.

As if this country is the most racist, the most arrogant, the most greedy, the most base, the most evil, the most violent nation on the globe.

Which it is not.


As if Freedom is actually "free" and carries no cost.

How can that be BZ, all the tree huggers are not allowing drilling or anything there???? Sarcasm

The fact is BZ fires are a necessary part of the forest area, in order for them to flourish fires must exist, the "enviro's" do more harm than good when they disallow logging, forest thinning and some management due to wildlife...

Stay safe bud, yall are in our thoughts and prayers

Bush: thanks. Just learned there's a fire at Emigrant Gap, which ain't too far from here. And just when the air is starting to clear up a tad. . .

Nice 4th of July sentiments, bz. Hope you are enjoying Independence Day weekend.

We are so blessed in this country. It amazes me when fellow Americans only wish to denigrate and belittle our country.
