Thanks for always having our six!
It’s a lonelier place on the other side of the wall; Not as many people in the push-back crew as years past. Lots of righteous blogs called it quits this year; Especially when the November election just proved that most people prefer free stuff, or at least ice-cream over spinach. I don’t blame them folk who rolled up and headed back one bit – we’re surrounded by idiots who appear to be multiplying exponentially.
She’s glorious, this lady liberty, and well worth fighting for…. and she loves us right back even when we’re rough around the edges, covered in dirt so deep even Lava can’t shake it, and crumpled packs of smokes in each shirt pocket when we stroll back by.
We don’t always get it right, and sometimes we gotta say sorry for the collateral damage, but it ain’t from lack of effort. As Churchill famously said: “Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing…after they have exhausted all other possibilities.”
