Trying Not to be Contoversial, but Failing

I don’t want to get too political on this blog so, I’m going to keep my mouth shut about my fears for the greatest document ever written besides the Bible- The U.S. Constitution. I’m sad about the erosion of individual rights in this country. We were founded on the premise of these rights being inalienable.

This week is the birthday of a wonderful, great nation that my ancestors helped to found. I love this country and I hope we stay strong and focused on the reasons we became who we are.

I hope you all have an awesome time with family and friends no matter how you celebrate our country’s birthday! I’m going to be in my writing cave for at least part of it and then a swim and cookout. What about you?

    Like you, I don’t want to politicize this anniversary of our nation’s independence.
    And, as I see it, we both agree that America’s constitution has been weakened, twisted, distorted, and misinterpreted. Some lawmakers have done that out of well-intentioned (but misguided) motives … but others have done so with cold, cynical calculation.
    My hope for the future of this great country is that wiser, nobler people will rise to positions of influence and authority … and lead us back to the proper paths our founders envisioned.

    We’ll keep it as neutral as possible, but it looks like we are all literally on the same page.What is most troublesome is the idea that defending the Constitution should be controversial! God help us.
    I think it’s going to be a quiet day for us; my niece used to come in and we’d have a real blow-out, eating all day and major fireworks at night, but between people out-of-town, children with other sides of the family, and last but not least, the economy, I think it’s not in picture this year.Besides,I hope fireworks do not start any more fires; we had a sprinkling of rain today, but nowhere near enough.
    Everyone be safe and happy!

    • Amen, Toni. Controversial- sadly it is- Makes me very sad.

      With the 4th being in the middle of a week, I think a lot of people will be foregoing the big get togethers since it would entail missing several days of work.

      I’m kind of bummed because I need to work on an applellate brief that is due on the 5th and I’ve been waiting for the court reporter to send me the trnascript. I still don’t have it but the judge didn’t grant my request for more time, so there goes my holiday. I have no idea how I’m going to cite to specific pages in the record since I don’t have a record, but there ya go, I’ll manage to turn something in. UGH! OH, and the fact that I had to pay over $600.00 to the court reporter for the record and don’t even have it makes my blood boil more than missing my holiday!

    Well, hopefully this afternoon’s rain won’t interfere with your afternoon plans for tomorrow. As for our plans for the 4th…there are none aside from food. Apple pie and probably something on the grill, assuming we don’t get the deluge we’re dealing with right now.

    A swim and a cookout? I’ll be right over. So, that means the pool is all clothed again and up and running, eh? Enjoy the day. We’ll be BBQing here after visiting a local Freedom Fair with booths hawking goods and food. Hmmm. Where did I leave my wallet? teeheehee

    • Come on over. Yep, pool is back with new liner and all cool and ready.

      I love the idea of the Freedom Fair. Sounds like a lot of fun. Enjoy. And don’t forget that wallet. Sounds like you’re gonna need it.
