Quote of the Day

In the words of the late comedian and patriot, Red Skelton in 1969

I, me an individual a committee of one. Pledge, dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity. Allegiance, my love and my devotion. To the flag, our standard, old glory, a symbol of freedom, wherever she waves there is respect because your loyalty has given her dignity that shouts that freedom is everyones job. United , that means that we have all come together. States of America, individual communities that have united into 50 great states. Fifty individual states with pride, dignity and purpose all divided with imaginary boundaries yet united to a common purpose and that is love for country. And to the republic, a state of which sovereign power is vested in representatives chosen by the people to govern and government is the people and it is from the people to the leaders not from the leaders to the people. For which it stands, meaning one nation so blessed under God. Indivisible, incapable of being divided. With liberty, which is freedom the right of power to live ones own life without threat, fear or some sort of retaliation. And justice, the principle or quality of dealing fairly with others. For all, which means it is as much your country as it is mine.”
