Fireworks

Could celebrating Independence Day 2018 be any more laughable?

As a country, we are in a place that is so anti-American it's beyond irony. It's a joke. But not a funny / ha-ha joke.

What people are passing off as patriotism is tragic. Not that I'm the most patriotic guy out there..........as I am clearly not. And I'm not one for sitting through (or staying up for) a fireworks display. I'm also not one to participate in such shenanigans by attending lest someone I think 'murica is great.

It is not. We are not.

I will go to our neighborhood picnic, but it is to see neighbors.........no one is passing it off as a celebration of county - just of Hebrew National hot dogs............and cupcakes.

Still, King George is more to the left and a lot less controlling than the current administration.

Now, that is irony.


Hope you all have the day off.

Relaxing day with the husband. Forget the other crap, just enjoy us.

Our country as we knew it is changing. We are no longer the definition of American we've known or loved. We're regressing, rather than progressing. I'm quite concerned about our future.
