Happy 4th of July


 

Surprisingly the 4th of July means different things to different people. Collectively, as Americans, it’s a celebration of an ideal, that has yet to be truly realized, the world dreams of…FREEDOM.

Here is just a sample of how people view America on the 4th of July:

Fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, hot dogs, burgers, political speeches, beaches, nationalistic pride. True Americana at it’s best but given our nation’s current degradation  the following words mean that we STILL need to get a lot more done,

“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.

Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.”
― Frederick Douglass

Since  Douglass time we made great strides in the battle for equality. The charge for freedom and equality remains and we must accept our failures if we are to achieve our founding father’s vision… I think one day we will, after all, we are AMERICANS.

“Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon. July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind.”—Neil Armstrong

    The group shouted at the Senate Majority Leader about the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

    LUV-it!, MOAR!, MOAR!!!

    If RoeVs Wade can be “OVERTURNED” when the left gains power again let them overturn The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

    • MSolomon2 says:

      -IF- the “left” ever has any chance to gain any power ever again….

      • Fancy Jack says:

        IN the duopoly game it’s almost assured, however it will not be until Trump is done RAPING America, circa 2025.

        • MSolomon2 says:

          oh no-no, you make assumption that they are gunna let anyone EVER take power away from them. This is the fundamental difference, the so-called “left” doesn’t have the reich-wings soul-less hunger to enthrone themselves in absolute power till the “end of days” (for jezuz!). Remember their first madman’s “revolution” where the goal was a permanent CONservative control, ronnie and his cohorts failed that time but this time! Now they’ve got the court locked up and dear-leader has made noises about not accepting the results of “rigged” elections (when it’s not him & vlad doing the rigging of course!). They’ve already got the “court” backing their election rigging/dis-enfranchaisement, expect to see new levels of gerrymandering un-dreamed by previous reich-wingers! Oh it’s truly a new golden-age for fascism!

    BOBBY it is time !!!

    • Fancy Jack says:

      What the headline should have said is that the whole was put on leave after posting violent and hateful comments. I make negative comments about Waters all the time, after all she is a belligerent, useless neoliberal establishment pit bull that harms the party more than she helps it, but you don’t see anyone putting me on leave….as if POM would allow it.

      • bebe says:

        Negative comment is NOT violent and hateful comment.

        I do support her courage and POMPOM allowed me.

  5. bebe says:

    Okay…plummer charged me $452.00 for
    1. something with the shower heads.
    Plus.
    .2. .to change filters on fridge and water dispenser.another day.which took 10 minutes.plus the price of filters.

    SHOCKING

    After going back and forth with the company they rediced it to 355.00.

    This was robbery, they were not like this before, we are using the company last 10 years. 😯

      Guests tomorrow, long time friends from KS, need to restrain Pomchi so she does not run and injure herself, that`s what happened 4 years ago.

    Space the Nation: Workers of the off-world, unite!
    http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/space-the-nation-workers-of-the-off-world-unite

    “Donald Trump is himself a walking, talking avatar of capitalism — predatory business is his brand. He’s stocked his cabinet with a gallery of comically inept henchmen whose misdeeds challenge the limits of rational description and whose position and wealth make a joke of meritocracy. If these are the winners in the “marketplace of ideas,” obviously, there’s something wrong with the market.”

    “Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said. While many bee keepers blame neonicotinoids, or “neonics.” for colony collapse of bees and many countries in EU have banned neonicotinoid class of pesticides, the US Department of Agriculture fails to ban insecticides known as neonicotinoids, manufactured by Bayer CropScience Inc.”

    “US scientists have found 121 different pesticides in samples of bees, wax and pollen, lending credence to the notion that pesticides are a key problem. “We believe that some subtle interactions between nutrition, pesticide exposure and other stressors are converging to kill colonies,” said Jeffery Pettis, of the ARS’s bee research laboratory.

    “The collapse in the global honeybee population is a major threat to crops. It is estimated that a third of everything we eat depends upon honeybee pollination, which means that bees contribute over 30 billion to the global economy.

    “A new study published in the Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences revealed that neonicotinoid pesticides kill honeybees by damaging their immune system and making them unable to fight diseases and bacteria.”

      the reason couldn’t be clearer in neo-feudal corporate-FASCIST murica, it’s all about the precious holy cha-ching of big-pharma. The “gubermint” won’t touch holy-bayer-full-of-profit. Especially with the SCUM we have in-power today, dear-leader and his obscene cronies, their “reasoning” is undoubtedly it’s cuz jezuz is mad at all the secular-humanism, and…, and…, HILLARY!!!!
