"As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of the opportunity provided to serve self-interest when Al Gore created the internet; and we should also thank Mark Zuckerburg and Jack Dorsey for creating Facebook and Twitter out of the kindness of their big hearts and not the thinness of their small wallets."
-Ben Franklin, Autobiography (1742)

Virginian Founders on Osama Bin Laden

When Osama bin Laden died, he was met at the Pearly Gates by George Washington, who slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive!" Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose & shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you.....failed." James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin & said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!" Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Osama with a long cane & snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence." The beatings & thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe & 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the terrorist leader. As Osama lay bleeding & in pain, an Angel appeared. Bin Laden wept & said, "This is not what you promised me." The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?

In all seriousness though, thank you to our armed forces and the men and women who risk their lives every day to secure our liberty. This site and this day is for you!
