Happy Bill of Rights Day

From HolidayOrigins.com:

This day was signed into practice by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on December 15, 1941, one hundred and fifty years after the actual signing of the Bill of Rights by our forefathers. Ironically, he proclaimed the holiday just one week after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor initiating the United States' involvement in World War II where freedom issues were at the core of wartime dogma.


We have much to be thankful for.

"Ironically, he proclaimed the holiday just one week after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor initiating the United States' involvement in World War II where freedom issues were at the core of wartime dogma."Gee...why does that sound familiar?

I think we especially need to be thankful that we still have a Bill of Rights left...not that certain factions aren't trying to modify it if not dispose of it altogether.

Those factions would be, of course, the Democrats and Republicans.
