MAZAR-I-SHARIF, AFGHANISTAN — Fourth of July. My seventh wedding anniversary. Seven mega-hits on the blog. They managed to figure out the proxy settings so that I can put up a proper post. Woo hoo!
In this recent mobile planning meeting, we see Stacy McCain, the passenger, discuss the importance of the number seven for a revenue generating idea he has for the blog. Wombat, the driver, tries to comprehend the brilliance on display. (Caution: F-bomb at the end):
By the Power of Kindle, I’m enjoying Toll’s Six Frigates. Don’t let my squid bias put you off: this is something every American should read. The details of the politics at the Founding differ from the politics of today less than you might think. Human nature is constant, after all. Technology is the variable, and that mostly affects the time involved for events to unfold.
The Ruling Class in the United States today is as foreign to the ideal of liberty as the Brititsh Parliament was in the time of the Founders. Blogs and their readers are going to drive the emancipation of Americans from the Progressive overlords.
Happy 4th of July, all you right wing extremists!
And thanks to “A Point of View” for a wonderful extended review.
Long may Stacy and Smitty reign and rain down on enemies left and center.
I’d say “read the whole thing”, but that would be self-serving.
