Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
This from Jono's Liberal Mom, in response to the story about Berkley not feeling the need to show any sort of love for their country on September 11th.
Indeed! Why don’t you all come to Amesbury (MA) where there will be a candlelight ceremony at the stadium? Kathy will sing Amazing Grace and there will be patriotic things, too. Children from every class in the elementary schools will be in a procession entering the stadium. I think they will be carrying a large American Flag. Candles are being sold all over town for people to take to the ceremony. The proceeds will benefit a young Amesbury family that lost its Dad on 9/11/02. Also the school children will be encouraged, not forced, to wear red, white and blue to school that day. We will say the Pledge of Allegiance at noon and will sing the National Anthem. California just needs to become another country. It seems that they don’t want to be Americans.
I'm sure Berkley residents would be suitably appalled.
