Happy Birthday, America!

Read what Ronald Reagan had to say about Independence Day here.

An excerpt:

Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people.

Let us also remember all the brave soldiers, sailors and airmen who defend the United States today, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of all of us, and the ideals for which American stands.

God bless the land of the free, and the home of brave!

And the Native Americans the settlers killed to give us their land!

If the settlers killed the natives to get the land, then the natives didn't really give the settlers the land, did they?

By the way, where did the natives come from? Was the land theirs before they arrived? No? Who did they take it from?

By gosh Greg, you actually got it in your first paragraph and lost it in the second.

Asia would be a good guess.

Hard to say. I don't believe we're allowed to dig below the Clovis layer.
