I really have to read your last few posts and comment but works a killer for the 4th and I have to work friday night.
Loved the Rabbi joke by the way.

I listened to the first 2 minutes and turned it off. I think it's pseudo-history of the worst sort. The narrator continually refers to "the colonists." Really??? In 1814??? I think we hadn't been colonists for some time. Then, he shows pictures of flags from the American Revolution!!! Also, Key went out there to secure the release of one man, not a cargo hold full of people. If I get really bored, I'll listen to the rest of it and see what else he gets wrong.


Happy Fireworks!

Watched the whole thing. Nice uplifting story. I don't know how uch is true.
I get pretty tired of this love it or leave it mindset that the gumpies have forced on the poor little people.
Happy 4th!

I listened to the entire thing. I then did a little research, and posted the results here.

Oh ho ho, I remember the history of the star spangled banner. They raped us with this back in elementary school, third grade I think.

Whitney Houston and Jimi Hendrix performed it better though :P
