Monday, July 04, 2005's quiet out there

Monday is of course the day we all catch up on the email, open the dodgy looking post that arrived over the weekend and keep going with extra shots of caffeine. Or is that just us here?

It is frankly a musical dessert out there tonight although if you are American you will no doubt be celebrating your independance from the tyranical nation; Britain.

Here is some of what the founding fathers of the United States of America wrote in that declaration:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Fine words; I wonder if George Bush has read this document recently?
