Happy Fourth!

 

Interesting take on our country's founders and immigration by Ilya Somin at Reason.

And David French on Christians and patriotism.

What we get wrong about the Founders - Albert Hunt

Brigitte sent this nice photo down from Washington.

True patriots are rebels, not bootlickers - Daily Kos

Samuel Johnson famously wrote in 1775 that “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.” In The Devil’s Dictionary, Ambrose Bierce made the appropriate correction: “With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.”

Don't tread on me.

Saw this beautiful red diamond rattler, crotalus ruber, crossing the road near my house the other day.
