Happy Birthday, America
A member of my family has fought in every war the U.S. has endured since The French and Indian War (with the sole exception of Desert Storm). I have a few high-placed relatives who fought in the Revolution and I had relatives on both sides during the Civil War. My son is in the Middle East now.
All of which somewhat explains why I get so infuriated when Republicans accuse liberals and Democrats of not loving their country, of not being patriotic. My family is by far majority Democrats and liberals-- all the way back as far as I can tell, so excuse my liberal cheers for my country-- and no, you are not going to take it back from me.
