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

    A Massive, Black Sarcophagus Has Been Unearthed in Egypt, And Nobody Knows Who’s Inside
    Should we open it?
    DAVID NIELD 11 JUL 2018

    “Archaeological digs around ancient Egyptian sites still have plenty of secrets to give up yet – like the huge, black granite sarcophagus just discovered at an excavation in the city of Alexandria, on the northern coast of Egypt.

    What really stands out about the solemn-looking coffin is its size. At 185 cm (72.8 inches) tall, 265 cm (104.3 inches) long, and 165 cm (65 inches) wide, it’s the biggest ever found in Alexandria.

    Oh, and then there’s the large alabaster head discovered in the same underground tomb. Experts are assuming it represents whoever is buried in the sarcophagus, though that’s yet to be confirmed.”

    Native Bees And Alfalfa Farmers — A Seedy Love Story

    “What we can boast is that these alfalfa seed growers here have yields on a per-acre basis 50 percent greater than anywhere else that alfalfa seeds are produced in the western United States,” says Doug Walsh, an entomologist at Washington State University who works closely with the region’s farmers. “It’s just a beautiful system. It’s neat that we figured out how to make it work.”

    Democrats must fight for impeachment: It’s the only real antidote for Donald Trump’s lies

    Will a forceful push for impeachment help Republicans? Not as much as Democrats lecturing and scolding each other

    I’d just like to see them “grow a pair” & actually raise some FIRE for a change….

      he (Gowdy) manages to take rech-wingers to a yet new low of a parody of a actual human-being, revolting behavior and utter batshit-crazy. – of course his “constituency” is ultimately responsible for actually elected this maggot-crawling-in-$hit of a thing.
