Putting Today’s Holiday in the Correct Perspective

Happy Independence Day!

Not Happy Fourth of July. Happy Independence Day.

We aren’t celebrating a date on the calendar today. We’re celebrating the courage of our Founding Fathers who had finally had enough of King George’s Obama-like government and the stones to publicly and officially declare that they were mad as hell and weren’t going to take it anymore.

To arms!

And actually, Independence Day isn’t July 4th. The Declaration of Independence was actually approved on July 2, 1776. The document was signed on July 4, 1776.

Over the last several years, conservatives has been extremely effective at getting the general public, including American retailers, to stop with the “Happy Holidays” crud and start wishing everyone a Merry Christmas again at, you know, Christmastime. I’d love to see a similar effort surrounding the Fourth of July/Independence Day.

At that concludes today’s history lesson.

Now get out there and create some global warming by firing up that charcoal grill, chowing down on some red meat (healthy salad optional), tossing back a cold Sammy Adams or two (the official beer of Independence Day) and shooting off some illegal fireworks (in a safe and responsible manner)!
