I was unable to win the war at my home with ants so a couple of years ago I hired Orkin to take over. The guy that shows up at my house is from
and he is a happy and friendly sort. He shows up every other month and treats the inside and outside of the house and we usually chat while he does it. His family is still in Ghana . He will be able to apply for citizenship soon. When he’s an American citizen his intent is to bring his family here. Ghana
Today he arrived and wished me a "Happy Independence Day." He is probably one generation removed from when his former country was dominated by the British. He had celebrated the independence of his adopted country yesterday and told me that he had purchased a copy of the Declaration of Independence. He said that he intended to frame his copy. When he was treating the inside of the windows in my den I showed him my framed copy. When we went up stairs I showed him my framed copy of the Constitution and also provided him a pocket copy of the Constitution. He was thrilled.
The time that we spent together was rich in lessons. A man who is here legally, working hard to provide for his family. His love of
and appreciation for the opportunity that it provides is obvious. He bought and plans to frame a copy of the first document that freed a nation and a people. When I explained the importance of the Declaration he was moved. When I handed him his very own copy of the Constitution he treated it with reverence. The Orkin guy could teach any liberal a great deal about America . The Orkin guy loves America more than Barack Obama does – amazing. America
