America's self-loathing may finally have crested out. It was bound to happen. I still celebrate our independence and feel very grateful to live in the Land of the Free and be able to vote for my own government. I pity those who have not learned the lesson that a society with individual freedom and basic civil rights is better than any other system yet devised. The solution to unequal experiences of freedom is more freedom, not less.
This is a happy holiday for me and I intend to proceed as usual.
This has been a very busy week for me but it's Friday on Thursday and I'm looking forward to a day off and a long weekend.
