It is Independence Day, Folks!

Really, it is TWO DAYS AFTER Independence Day, but I understand that the fourth of July is now recognized as the day. Of the over 200 posts that I read this morning regarding the holiday, about ninety percent said, "Happy Fourth of July."

That statement does not bother me so much, but it does belittle the GRAVITY of what we are supposed to be celebrating. We are recognizing that some fifty-six guys placed their names on a document that refuted the authority of what was then, the most powerful militarily advanced country on the face of the planet. They risked their very lives and their families lives to give to us the greatest country in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

And, please understand that the Declaration was not actually completely signed until August of 1776. Read the Wiki, yeah, it is NOT all correct, but they are really stupid over there.

Salute your flag and the determination of your country, folks. (Hat-Tip: Classical Liberal)

And always remember that liberty, freedom, and independence are NOT FREE. (Hat-Tip: Steve Rankin)

Please take the time to comment.

Jan. 6, 2009 – U.S. Marines raised the American flag yesterday during the dedication ceremony for the new U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
What an amazing group of individuals (the Marine Corps). Makes you proud to be an American!

You didn't read my blog this morning. I think you would have found a different and quite human approach to the day.

Hats off to those who have carried the water since the Declaration of Independence. And it ain't any of the current pantywastes in Congress right now...especially from the Leftards.
