230 Years Ago Today

I’ll simply repost last year’s offering:

Lexington and Concord

I realize that one man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter, and I know that we aren’t always right. But does anyone really equate today’s jihadists and what they fight for with the minutemen at Lexington Green or Concord Bridge and what they fought for?

I know that we don’t always do the right thing, and that when we try to do the right thing we don’t always do it the right way. But let’s not get into any silly moral equivalence games over it. (via Free Republic)

Those games have quieted down some, but they’re still being played.
