    Wow. thanks for sharing. It's too bad people don't write like that any more.
    Not sure it's directly gun related, so this might get locked. But i am certainly glad you shared it.

    Excellent reading, and also a perfect example of how professional actors are able to disconnect their true beliefs from the lines they read......

    That's why they are called actors, no?

    So, I've read the document and attending documents several times in my life but never had the base document read in its entirety to me by anyone.

    This was pretty cool but left me rather cold in hearing the third person references to King George and his transgressions.

    Now, I know you can find meaning most anywhere - and in particular if you have a mentality disposed to extremely flexible interpretation - but the absolutely eerie calls to redress the King's behavior had too many elements which could have been lifted from contemporary newspapers, and by contemporary I would span the past couple decades anyhow.

    Not partisan but rather patriot.

    Oh, and how 'bout them having Graham Greene read the portion about using native peoples to nefarious ends?

    Thanks for the link, and the chills which accompanied the viewing.

    While it is cool it really is not on topic for THR. I love stuff like this but it is simply not on topic for THR.
