In the Night Farm…Your Ride is Here.

Independence Day?

“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield
and government to gain ground.”

…maybe that’s why…

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time
with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

Smart guy, that Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Paine wasn’t half bad, either:

“When men yield up the privilege of thinking,
the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon.”

Here’s something worth thinking about today.

Observe. Conclude. Act.

Or lose.
