  • May 7, 2009 at 3:00PM

After seemingly quoting from the Declaration of Independence, Mr. Jack Hamilton asserts that health care is not a right as stated in that document (“Do you really have a right?” April 17).

On May 1, I left the county to spend a couple of days with some of my U.S. Naval Academy classmates in Oregon. It always helps to get together with old friends and to re-zero the historical reference points in your life. For those of us in my generation, some of those points were the election and the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Cuban missile crisis, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, the Vietnam War (and the loss of a number of friends and classmates), the Nixon resignation, the U.S. Embassy hostages in Iran and the failed rescue attempt, and the end of the Cold War. We lived through and participated in much of the history that is reflected in today’s political thought and rhetoric. Unfortunately, firsthand knowledge and experience are apparently no match for the revisionist history essential to assigning blame to the United States and to validate a continuing string of apologies to every country of the world for all the evil we have done.
