Our July 4th Guests?  
By Asher Embry

A few days hence we celebrate
Our independence, declared that date.
Those truths we found self-evident,
The essence of what makes us great.

How can we be so cavalier
On that of all days of the year
To let Khamenei’s thugs appear
And join us for our brats and beer?
