2008 Super Bowl "Patriots" versus "Giants" game provides excellent setting for Thanks to Our Troops as "MVP" players in Liberty's Game.
As we enjoy watching the the 2008 Super Bowl game through our window framed by liberty, we should note the reflection of ourselves and remember who to thank.
In 2008 when the Super Bowl game,
our yearly tradition as Liberty's Game,
rewards its contestants with fortune and fame,
it's right to remember the joys of the game
are viewed through a window by liberty framed.
Though mainly a window performs by its panes
enabling our vision of sights through its frame,
a function more subtle occurs when its panes
send partial reflections like mirrors that frame
a view of ourselves as we look through its frame.
And keen eyes perceive watching Liberty's Game
ourselves in reflection by liberty framed
and thus are reminded of who we should name
as MVP players in Liberty's Game:
Our Troops as protectors of Liberty's Frame.
Our troops far from home will watch "Liberty's Game" secure in the knowledge that their efforts and sacrifices will help insure the ultimate triumph of liberty over tyranny for all of us and our posterity. What makes their sacrifices so much more honorable is that they make them voluntarily rather than by compulsion. When Tom Brokaw described the World War II generation as "the Greatest Generation," he didn't adequately appreciate the generation(s) of our military personnel serving voluntarily since elimination of the draft in the 1970's. Today's American military is the best, most professional, most disciplined in conforming to moral codes of conduct, and most humane of any military that ever existed in all of human history. Despite the horrors of war to which they're exposed, the crime-rates among our military are lower than among our civilian population living in the cocoon of freedom being secured by them. Are they perfect? Of course not. Do they claim to be? Of course not. Do they adhere to their loyalty to our constitutional form of government despite the free-speech they're protecting being abused by so many to heap false and malicious calumny upon them? Yes they do. Do they deserve our unequivocal support and gratitude? Of course they do.

Biography - Jim Wrenn
Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.
After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.
He wrote the definitive books on the Clinton
Era Error: the Clinton Liebrary Book (pre-October, 2000), which he later updated as the Clinton Liebrary Book 2001 Edition to include Election 2000, the post-election shennanigans, and related events through August, 2001. The 2001 edition is the only known literary source that conclusively shows why Bill Clinton pardoned Susan McDougal but not Webster Hubbel. It also presciently contains the Billary/Hillary Dueling Memoirs. At every opportunity he shamelessly promotes his books for orders on-line or by fax at www.ClintonLiebraryBook.Com. He's also the Librarian at the Clinton Liebrary (www.ClintonLiebrary.Com), which owns exclusive rights to Bill Clinton's most famous speech as well as Bill Clinton's comments after revelation of the identity of Deep Throat in 2005.
As an amateur scientist as well as a scientific amateur, he de-bunks the man-is-causing-Global "Warming" theory, and predicts that by the middle of the 21st Century (when he will be safely dead) physicists will discover the obvious flaws in Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which will lead to vastly-faster-than-light travel through polarization of gravity. As a constitutional-law scholar, he's trying to teach those who hold a static, zero-sum-game view of economic and social theories to understand that "property" is not a "thing" but rather is a human right.
Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
