Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning

If there are any Americans left that cherish the freedoms they daily enjoy, might I suggest they get down on their knees and thank holy God that a band of right-wing religious extremists stood upon the courage of their convictions and pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to secure liberty for the rest of us.

Incidentally, it's "Independence Day," not the "4th of July." Referring to this day just like we would any other cheapens what it stands for and what a monumental event happened in that sweltering Philadelphia courthouse 229 years ago.

Naturally, I have yet to see any media commercials call today by its correct name. I'm not in the least surprised, nor am I holding my breath. Call it Flag Day, part 2.

Oops. I better go back and edit my blog to say Independence Day instead of July 4th before Stewy gets me. ....Actually? Come get me!!! =P

OK seriously. You're right. This should be a day of Thanksgiving like no other. Brad Pitt (geez, of all people) actually hit the nail on the head when he said that anyone born in America has hit the jackpot. I mean... he hit it more than the rest of us, but it's true.

sorry! I knew it was Independence Day, but as the fourth of July has become the colloquial terminology I used that instead... but that shouldn't necessarily demote the importance of this day

However, Happy Independence Day Stewy :-) it's good to hear the words of a patriot, as in giving credit where credit is due
