Snoopy Fourth of July

Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech. — Benjamin Franklin, 1722

There is nothing so fretting and vexatious, nothing so justly terrible to tyrants, and their tools and abettors, as a free press. — Samuel Adams, 1768

The freedom of speech may be taken away — and, dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter. — George Washington, to officers of the Army, 1783

Celebrations will be held from sea to shining sea!
