    April 19th ..... 1775

    Let's remember April 19th as PATRIOTS day. The MSM will use it to commemorate (if you want to put it like that) both the bombing of the Oklahoma Federal Building and the tragic outcome of the Koresh cult in Waco. But the greatest event to happen on April 19th happened in 1775 when the British Redcoats tried to force the colonials in the towns of Lexington & Concord to lay down their arms and submit to the King. Somebody fired a shot and it was heard 'round the world..... And so the American Revolution began.....

    Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it, let us never forget. Long live the American Revolution!
    God bless our troops!
