On this day:

It's Independence Day!

So, read the friggin' Declaration, why don't you! Read it to yourselves, read it to your children, read it to the bartender...just read it. And read it out loud. There's a lot to be said for actually hearing the Declaration that Gen. George Washington's ordered read to his troops in New York on July 9, 1776 - the same Declaration Washington and others of the Founding generation pledged their Lives, their Fortunes, and their sacred Honor to support.

Long live the Spirit of '76. Have a Happy Fourth!
