THE 4TH OF JULY-FREEDOM NOT HOT DOGS!

Independence Day to most Americans means a three day weekend with gatherings of family and friends, barbecues, parties, games, food, parades, baseball games and fireworks.  Traditionally, most of us know that July 4th is the recognition and celebration of our country’s independence from an oppressive government.  But this mid summer special day is really only about one thing.  Freedom.  And way too often, our freedom is being compromised and challenged, not by some foreign power, but from within by our own political leaders.  Take a look at my new column on the real meaning of Independence Day.  You can read it now by Clicking Here, or by Clicking on the Flashing Red Box at the top of this site. My friend, Judge Anthony Napolitano has a few thoughts on freedom and the government below.  And check out Richie Havens’ classic from Woodstock on Freedom.  Plus, anything patriotic has to  include Clint Eastwood-right?
