Happy 4th of July!

Yeah, we may be a republic in decline, but we’re still one of the greatest places in the world to be. Don’t believe me? What nations have a higher immigration numbers than us? No, that’s not the only metric, and yes, there are lots of ways to slice those numbers, but the fact that it’s still one of the most attractive places in the world to go to is testament to its qualities.

We are a nation founded in revolution – revolutionary ideas, revolutionary war, and revolutionary ways of doing things. Imperfect, but willing to admit our flaws (unlike so many other nations in the world) and doing our best, however indirect a course we may take, to improve.

I hope all is well with you and yours, you stay safe, and here’s to another year with banner sales, accomplishments, and a record year of prosecutions of government employees.

One thought on “Happy 4th of July!

  1. Years ago I read an op-ed that said, of immigrants “and who knows, maybe one of them will win a Nobel prize some day”. That sent me off to the encyclopedia to check the numbers. It turned out that roughly 25% of Nobel prize winners in the sciences were immigrants — and that only counted those who immigrated first and won the prize afterwards, not those like Einstein who did it in the other order.
