Above is a video I made with my son last year on July 4th. I think it sums up what I mean, but before that...
What do I tell my children if they ask me are all men created equal?
Yes except for...
Who can I tell them should be responsible for the biggest misconception (on paper) in American history?
Everyone from 1776 is dead...
Now I love America. I really really do but we now live in an age where one has to be totally accountable for their words but why haven't we held anyone accountable for what is written in the Declaration of Independence?
Here are some people who we held accountable for their words.
Mark Halperin was suspended for calling Obama a dick.
Tracey Morgan was reprimanded for saying he would stab his son if he were gay.
Rick Sanchez was fired for calling Jon Stewart a bigot.
Gilbert Gottfried was fired for making jokes about the Japan earthquake.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger gets reprimanded and quits for using the n word.
The truth of the matter is that these people will come and go but the Declaration of Independence has been around for 235 years with the line all men are created equal.
Sorry ladies it says men.
