The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Happy Independence Day!

Holiday

As you enjoy this day with family or friends, cookouts, camping, fireworks, parades and the like, please find the time to reflect on the reason we celebrate this day.  We are a proud nation, one where we can express our different thoughts and views, one where we can have religious freedom, one where our soldiers continue to fight for the Freedom we enjoy, one where we take a day out of the year to celebrate a birthday, not “just another year”, one birthday that will continue to be another year to celebrate our freedom, one where we can be thankful for the Freedom we enjoy!

 

Whichever way you choose to observe the 4th of July, celebrate of our Birthday and be proud to be a part of this magnificent nation!
