Patriotism is easy to understand in America.  It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(And, “looking out for” does not mean *not questioning*.  Blind obedience is anathema to patriotism.  Exercise your rights, people.  All those who gave their lives for this country deserve more than a bunch of yahoos who blithely accept all that they’re told, while mindlessly chanting USA, USA, USA.  The ideal of America is not a destination, it’s a never ending journey.  It’s a work in progress, in which we cannot afford to be complacent.  Be well, do good and be aware.  Diligence, tolerance and vigilance are what make us a more unified people.  Peace.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Ben, George(?) and Tom coming up with a bright idea.

LMYDA  =  MADLY,  CIHTD  =  DITCH,  RHHUST  =  THRUSH,  ELUOVM  =  VOLUME   —  Giving us:  MAYDIHTRSOE

Clue/Question:  When they decided to create the Declaration of Independence, they did this.

Answer:  MADE HISTORY

(Very appropriate Jumble subject matter!  Well scrambled clue words, good drawing, and a relatively obvious answer.  I can’t remember if I’ve seen “thrush” before.  A lot of great ideas started over a mug of beer and/or mead!  I hope everybody has a safe and happy 4th of July!  Be well and do good, friends.  Peace.)   —   YUR
