Today is the anniversary of the birth of our nation and tomorrow many of us will get together with friends and family to celebrate whatever the day happens to mean to us. To me the last few years it has been a day that I make myself scarce from such dark places as this, leaving my partisan axes behind, I invite everyone here to do the same thing. Spend tomorrow among the largest crowd you can find just soaking in the awesomeness that is the fourth of July, eat like hogs, drink like fools, be Jolly and happy and patriotically sappy as you possibly can. Don't gripe about republicans or democrats or whatever, better yet just don't gripe. Make your relatives glad they invited you for once. We live in a remarkable country where people such as ourselves can spend sinful amounts of productive time griping about the government, what an unbelievable luxury that is, for one day we should celebrate with each other the American that is in all of us. Tomorrow I will respond to only positive non partisan threads and if you people cannot manage even a little of that then enjoy my absence. I love my country and tomorrow is too special, too solemn, too light-hearted to soil with a bunch of the negativity we willingly surround ourselves with every other day. Happy 4th everyone, I will not presume to tell any of you what to love about this country, just to forget for a few short hours what pisses you off about it. Tomorrow I love you all, the next day I am making no promises.
