ITEMS OF LASTING INTEREST

 

AMERICANISM:

In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the Anti-American sentiment and negativity,
we should remember England's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview.
When asked by one of his parliament members why he believes so much in America he said:
A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in...and how many
want out. Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you.
1.Jesus Christ ††† 2 The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other died for your freedom.
