New Year's Eve is a'comin'

New Year's Eve is fast approaching. Just two more days, then a few days downtime and I'll be back to "all politics all the time." Right now, I ask you the have a safe New Year's Eve - just think it will be on-going for 24 hours or so around the globe. Then come back with your comments for a great 2007. The year 2007 will mark the 400th Celebration of Jamestown Settlement. I heard Thomas Jefferson speak today in Colonial Williamsburg. He had faith in the American people to govern themselves; to become enlightened through education; and if they did not know something, to go out and learn, learn, learn. He also said today that anyone living at Monticello - slave and freeman alike was allowed to borrow books from his personal library. He deplored slavery and spoke of the times in which he lived and the need to educate the slaves so that they would not go out into the "world" unprepared with a skill, a livelihood, the ability to read. So, as we move into the year 2007, read, read, read; learn, learn, learn. And if you have a student who graduates from a public high school and that student cannot read his or her diploma, get a group together and sue the Federal Government for failing to educate our future - your children. The families of the 12,000 or so Americans who have been killed since 9/11 by illegal aliens on our soil, get together and sue the Federal Government for failing to protect American citizens. As Thomas Jefferson stated, this is our government. We control it; it does not control us and it is responsible to us, to all of us. God bless you and your loved ones. [Earlier today I posted an entry entitled, "Freedom is not free." As luck would have it, Mr. Jefferson spoke today on that very issue - Freedom is not free. We must demand an educated citizenry with one language so that we have mobility, so that we can fulfill the American Declaration of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. None of these are "given to us by a benevolent government". Maintaining Life, Liberty, and the opportunity to personally and individually pursue happiness are personal responsibilities that fall upon us - our freedoms depend upon us.]

It couldn't have been said any more prophetically than that. America MUST wake up, stop imaginining that what they're hearing is bigotry.

Truth is not bigotry.
