National Day of the Cowboy
National Day of the Cowboy :: Presesrve the Western Heritage
Saturday is the National Day of the Cowboy. This holiday celebrates the heritage of the rugged individualist that kept this nation fed during the latter part of the 19th Century and celebrates those of us that keep to the old ways of who we are as a people.
A ranch back in the old days was a true melting pot since 1 in 3 were white, which means that there were Indians, Mexicans, and African-Americans that punched cattle. The old timers were tough where they had deal with all sorts of weather, stampedes, no sleep, and months in the saddle all for about $30 a month. They never stopped until the job was done.
The cowboy is a great symbol of who we are as a people, representing the best of who we are, looking out for our neighbor and doing the right thing.
So to celebrate this holiday, watch a western, go to a SASS match, or go to a rodeo and eat a steak.
"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
They are left in full possession of them."
Zacharia Johnson (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,25 June 1778)"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."
