Patriotism

The Fourth of July weekend was approaching, and Miss Pelham, the nursery school teacher, took the opportunity to tell her class about patriotism.

'We live in a great country,' she announced. 'One of the things we should be happy is that, in this country, we are all free.'

Trevor, who was a little boy in her class, came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said loudly, 'I'm not free. I'm four.'

  2. But don't send that kid to Harvard! Some idiot professor says that Fourth of July Parades create Republicans! I nearly choked.... So let's have more parades! I'm so sick of this "Citizen of the Globe" krap. I still love the USA and am not ashamed.
