You have to love a nation that celebrates its Independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. — Erma Bombeck

It is the love of country that has lighted and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism. ~J. Horace McFarland

Americans will put up with anything provided it doesn’t block traffic.
