Baseball, Jazz, Apple Pie and Porn

America is a great country.  No matter what you think of our current economic and political environment, this is a great country.  Our founding fathers created a government that is pretty cool.  Here is a portion of the Declaration of Independence we should all know:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed”.

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

When I think of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, I think America as a culture came up was some pretty wonderful things.

1) Jazz - the music genre that moved up from the south out of slavery and became America’s music.

2) Baseball – a game that is truly American. Coming out of the era of the Civil War, it defends our journey as a people.  Through the golden age, desegregation, drugs and more.

3) Apple Pie – enough said….

Now, of course there is the Internet – ya, Al Gores World Wide Web.  One thing I did not realize is that Internet Porn is another American “thing”.  Forget about all the stats on Internet Pornography, and just look at where the global porn is served from – yes, that’s right 60% of all Internet Porn is hosted in the United States.

I wonder if the founding fathers though of the when the wrote “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?.  Hmmmm
