Five Things you should know, Today, July 4, 2012

1.  Sparklers kill

Massachusetts is still one of only two states in the United States to ban that silent killer, the sparkler.  Remember, possessing sparklers is criminal, but you can smoke all the weed you want.  

2. We’re apparently the “smear machine”

David Bernstein of the Boston Phoenix has labeled me a certified member of the vast right wing smear machine.  Lumped in with, the FreeBeacon, and Legal Insurrection.  Apparently all of Elizabeth Warren’s issues are our fault.  Remember the new word for truth is “smear”.  Like remember saying that Barack Obama was a member of the Socialist New Party was a smear, until well it turned out to be the truth.

This brings me to my favorite quote of the late Andrew Breitbart, “The truth isn’t mean.  It’s just the truth.”

3.  John Tierney thought it was legal

According to a tweet from Glen Johnson, of the Boston Globe, John Tierney thought his in-laws illegal gambling operation was legal.  If that was true, why did he vote to make internet gambling legal.  Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

4. We Still Hold These Truths

236 years ago our country was founded on the principles of evident truths.  236 years later we still hold these truths.  This book lays them out.  

Featuring a foreword by bestselling author and popular talk radio host William J. Bennett,We Still Hold These Truthsis an inspiring and enlightening look at ten core principles that define our national creed-and that we must reclaim in order to put our country back on track.

5. Speaking of truths.  Arthur Fiedler Rocked.

Happy Fourth!
