Are we there yet is a question one doesn't hear so often once kids are grown. Then I knew the answer because I was leading the way. Now kids are grown the question should then be asked of the one supposidly now leading the way, thats right the president. I feel he will not have the answer one wants to hear, or will he. From the side of the fence I am on he will not answer correctly. Go ahead ask him. Ask a member of his staff. Ask one of the presidents apointees,you know the czars. Just make sure the way you ask can not be considerd racist, but then again maybe that will answer the question.

Let’s start with a shocking, but true premise: If you are a patriotic American, you believe that there are circumstances under which it is right to take up arms against your own government. That statement feels wrong to me. It reeks of militia and McVeigh and toothless loons holed up with guns in cabins in order to avoid paying income taxes.

But the fact remains that the rationale for the existence of the nation known as the United States of America, which first appeared in print 236 years ago today, is entirely dependent on the premise...
