It’s a COUNTRY thang.
I’m glad you posted that.
I have to admit though, I’m as fascinated by all that must have gone into making that video, as I am by the aim of it.
Thanks for posting that Poppa. It’s great… it kinda grabbed me a bit when I saw the words were scrolling right over the signature of my kin-folk. I think if he was around today, he’d be saying "Hmmm… what happened? Where did things go wrong? Weren’t these basic guidelines enough?"
Did you sign the pledge and join yer kin?
Did Ben Arnold sign the Declaration?

My mom’s maiden name is “Carroll”, descended from Charles O’Carroll of Carrollton. I thought that was pretty cool when I found out about it. My great-great uncle spent a sizable sum of his fortune on researching the Carroll lineage. He was one of a team of scientists who pretty much pioneered modern micro-biology and genetic research. He made a mint off a few patented processes. It’s a crying shame his great-great nephew wasn’t in the will…
