It is great to celebrate another birthday of our great country. While there is plenty to complain about (inept politicians, too litigious in nature, too politically correct, high pace, Hollywood morals and taxes everywhere), we have the freedom to complain about it and still go about our business. Our country gives us many safety nets (unwanted or not), but frustrates us with pace and debate.
Washington DC seems a city that just "grinds water". They charge us for both the water and the grinding of it. As you may have guessed, grinding water does nothing for it, but it seems like there is some activity at least. I'm still glad for the privilege to live here where the spirit of innovation is unstoppable. Some want to escape it and life itself, but they are wrong in my mind. The US is not perfect, but it's a great place to strive for perfection through teamwork.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COUNTRY OF MINE !
