    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.

    The fact that Franco thanked you for this posting, tells me everything I need to know about you. :eusa_hand:

    Based on your discription of your plans for July 4th, GLUTTONY is the first thing that comes to mind, and I believe that GLUTTONY is one of those "really bad" sins. :eek:

    Happy Birthday America

    A day to remember the Document that started it all.

    The Declaration of Independence


    If You Believe like I do that This Current Government is Destructive to our Ends, we have a chance to alter our Destructive Government coming up in Nov.

    If you believe our Best Course is with Obama and the Dems, You have your chance as well.

    And when it's all over will all still be Americans no matter what the Outcome.

    Our nation was born July 2nd, 1776. Not July 4th.

    Let me google that for you

    The Continental Congress resolved we were an independent nation July 2nd.

    July 4th is the birthday of the Declaration of Independence, not the United States.


    BTW - What the fuck are they teaching in our schools these days that people don't know this?

    Isn't it appropriate that Barack Hussein Obama spends America's birthday (July 4th) with the likes of Francois Hollande -in France, all the while Mr. Hollande mimics Obama's Socialist ideology and requests Europe renegotiate the EU fiscal treaty while the rest of Europe sits back and says "Sorry it isn't going to happen". Sorry, you Socialist twits... Sometimes YOU have to pay for the outrageous welfare programs you seek... And guess what, the middle class can no longer afford it.
