A Declaration for One and All

“We must never cease to proclaim in fearless tones the great principles of freedom and the rights of man which are the joint inheritance of the English-speaking world and which through Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, the Habeas Corpus, trial by jury, and the English common law find their most famous expression in the American Declaration of Independence.”

- Sir Winston Churchill - March 5, 1946

If you remember nothing else, remember this: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Happy birthday America!

Thanks Charlie. I know you Brits don't celebrate so I'll have a cold one for you.

Thank you both. You have much to celebrate!

My dear Roger - Yes we are back. At times , however, our duties as Defender of Western Civilization call us behind the scenes more than we would like. You understand. Onward!
