The Story of the 4th of July

The Story of the Fourth of July

The Declaration of Independence

We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.

But July 4, 1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).

It wasn’t the day we started the American…

USFRA. In job interview

Greetings,

During a job interview recently I was asked to explain what USFRA was and in my own words. I landed the job but was curious as to how other members in my shoes would have

briefly explained USFRA as a whole and its many subgroups within. My response was enthusiastic but rather long I felt. I was just wondering what anybody else might have said on the spot, keeping it shorter and more natural.

Column I wrote for Knox News Sentinel about WWE donation to 1st responders

I was asked to make a case that the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation should turn down a $100,000.00 donation pledged by the WWE owner Vince McMahon. It should be declined because the WWE made $35 million from Saudi Arabia, the donation would be made up of Saudi money.

Obviously many Americans believe the Saudi Arabia government was behind 9/11 attacks that murdered over 3000 Americans including many of your first responders.

The WWE was embarrassed by bad publicity it…
