Birthday tribute to a 229 year old dame

MJ has written a beautiful tribute to America on her 229th birthday:

For the fourth Independence Day in a row America is at war. It’s not the first time that this has happened and it probably won’t be the last. Yet this dream that freedom is a birthright has been borrowed the world over. To think that people everywhere if given the choice would not want to rule themselves is probably as incorrect as to think that democracy imposed from the outside is also value of that dream. To dream small with the American Dream is as wrong as dreaming too big.

MJ, I am with Sminks are either a script writer, or a politician in the making....or both.

Hey thanks for the link!

I thought after all my Bush bashing, that I must in the most minute way, and at the very least, give credit to those who defend my right-- and millions around this world-- to do so.

America, with all thy faults!!

"Why is it called the American dream? Because it happens when you are sleeping." I do not know the movie's title, but it that with the Sex Guru. And Heather Graham.

All the best to Americans who love their country.
