I thought about putting up a video like this today, and the first one that popped into my head was WHITNEY... you are right, about the best delivery I can recall in all my days, man did she have the pipes before she got all screwed up

A happy Independence day to you and yours

Thanks for thinking of me. The National Anthem IS Independence Day to me.

I attended a patriotic rally at a large city park where I live and a fireworks show. I'm sure that Democrats who attended melted like the Wicked Witch of the West after a bucket of water was dumped on her.

40,000+ people stood, took off their hats and sang the National Anthem. It was a celebration of America, not a celebration of the differences between us as individuals (how un-progressive). There was a prayer to open the event - and I'm sure that might have been a hint to progressives attending that it wouldn't go THEIR way.

Where my family sat on the grass, there was a Coptic (Egyptian Christian) priest and some of his flock on one side, and a Jewish rabbi on the other. There were many Muslims there too. (Southern California is a melting pot) America is a nation of many races, many places of origin, many different backgrounds - but AMERICANS are ONE PEOPLE.

God bless America.
