We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers and friends a Happy 4th of July. This is a particularly meaningful and important Independence Day. We are living in times where a marginal segment of society views patriotism, national pride and a strong national identity as an impediment to a global community. This concept, along with the need for ratings, is behind the crass and embarrassing attacks on our President and his family. We have spoken about this issue on several occasions and continue to advance the concept that national pride, strong national identity and a global community and commerce are not mutually exclusive.
We’ll close by wishing President Donald J. Trump and his lovely family a Safe and Happy Independence Day Celebration!
