From today
My thoughts exactly
Harry Browne and Brad Edmonds on the sham that the Fourth of July has become.

Brad Edmonds: 'Almost all 4th of July celebrations will include a segment devoted to worship of our standing military.'

Sho’nuff. And I heard not one but two very bad covers of Lee Greenwood's 'God Bless the U.S.A.' (where, oh, where is Simon Cowell when you need him?) - one briefly on TV along with the military thing and the other live as I passed the start of my half-square-mile borough's parade, on my bike on my way to the antiwar march in the city.
