Great videos, Scott! I’ve crossposted them on MidnightBlue.

Happy 4th to all at Flopping Aces!

I’d say both kids should run for President. From the looks of them, they already have more qualifications than the current Dem nominee.

I agree with Mike. Between the two of them, it’d be 16 years of peace and prosperity!

Happy 4th One and All!

Happy Fourth to All. God Bless America!

From an Aussie, we get uplifting films such as The Patriot (video excerpts Mike provided), We Were Soldiers and Braveheart. From American Michael Moore…. well, you get the picture…

MataH, I came across a great clip today that I wanted to post but it was Aussie related in regards to the Korean War. I wanted to keep to the American theme. In my eyes, I feel the Aussies are better friends to us than the Brits (surely more than Moore). I guess cause we’re both rebels. I am real close friends with a kiwi. Sad when it seems others are more patriotic than those that claim to be American.

The video is actually on the Forgotten War, Korea. My father fought in it, interestingly, during WWII.

Korean War Heroes – They are not forgotten

Thank you to the Aussies, and all that have taken up arms in the cause of Freedom!

(ed. multiple additions and spelling changes. )

There’ve been many films about the American Revolution and Patriot has been one of the best.

When we look upon our Independence Day, we think of wars and soldiers and battles won as if that’s all there is and now it’s all over. We seldom remember that our Revolution is not over, it’s still going on. We have only now decided that owning a gun is an individual right. We’re only now developing arguements for the meaning of Freedom of Speech and when does a human become a person.

One of the most important battles has recently divided us as a nation: does the Constitution extend its guarantees to non-citizens in war as it does in peace?

No, the American Rrevolution is far from over. It is still up to each of us to pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor or sit down, shut up, and watch it all go away as dust in a desert wind.

I agree, Udder. The Aussies are great allies (altho let’s see what they do under the new PM… )

So elaborate please what your Dad was doing in Korea
during WWII. Mine was a Army Air Corp mechanic, servicing pilots in Italy.

BTW, Indigo… the battles for freedom are never over. “Ever vigiliant” are the operative words.
