Happy Fourth Of July, Ann and all on Althouse!

I hope we can all share and pause for a moment to honour this great country, which is mine by adoption and love.

Cheers,
Victoria

Viva la Revolucion Americana!

Eleven score and twelve years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

It is for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from our honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

God bless you Abe, George, and of course Ann and her motley crew.
