The Camera Angel

They appear out of nowhere. You won't recognize them as angels for their wings are hidden behind their huge giving hearts. This was the gift handed to me. Placed ever so gently in my hands; with a look of happy pride in his eyes. I've know this angel for about a year. He knew I was a photographer. Silently, quietly he waited. And then the gift. He said this: 'I've enjoyed this for many years, but I knew you needed it...(he took a breath)'s yours.' The 1980 Mamiya ZE-2 Quartz. The Camera Angel. Thank You.

Liberty is a broad term. It can mean group liberty or special interest liberty and, of course, what everyone thinks it is, individual liberty or individual freedom. Let’s narrow it down to individual liberty, i.e., our natural individual rights, given us by our Creator, not government, of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is what only exists in America, though under assault today. It is important that free individuals are the only pebble-droppers; the nails sticking up that government people are afraid of tripping over and seek to hammer down. That, however, implies individual self-interest is more important than are the interest of communities. Obama and modern Democrats are opposed to that, as they are united in their support of Rousseau and Marx, not Jefferson and Madison.
