Like all of your favorite radio/teevee hosts Im doing a best of today. I hope you enjoy my 2015 4th of July retrospective.
Happy Birthday America!
From 2011: a pre-4th post from Camp David, Home For the Holiday: Feliz Quarto De Julio
Anyway, the long and short of it is Lady M decided to send me and Little Mo back to the Big White to weed and water the Big White Organic Garden of Versus in order to give our illegal Mexicans the rest of the Quarto de Julio weekend off.
From 2012: Happy Birthday America! July 4, 2012 in which we enjoy a quote from Abraham Lincoln.
The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheeps throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty, especially as the sheep was a black one. Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of the word liberty.
Although I think we can all agree on the meaning ofdestroyer.

And from 2013, As it Turns Out, We Were the Ones Weve Been Waiting For,we have Paul Harveys video essay on the fate of the 56 men who believed liberty was so important that they pledged our lives, our fortune, our sacred honor to ensure it.
Also from that post, a not-to-be-missed photo-recipe for some 4th of July smores that have been kicked up to notches unknown:
Warning: do not eat more than a dozen
Also from 2013, we have a bonus post of the Star Spangled Banner by Madison Rising.
And finally, last years 4th of July post, A republic, Madam, if you can keep it which includes an eerily prescient observation about Joan Rivers.
So lets get those baked beans in the oven, the potato salad in the frig and the burgers and dogs on the grill and party like its 1776!
Happy Birthday America Long May You Run!

Sure I love my country with all her faults.
