    Definitely a day to reflect on liberty and its meaning.

    To our neighbors to the north of us- a slightly belated happy Canada Day. To my fellow ungrateful colonists- Happy Independence day!

    As far as being our darkest 4th ever- I would have to disagree- Not. Even. Close.

    We made it thru the years of the Civil War. We made it thru WW1 and WW2. July 4, 1942 was really not a good time for us- we came real close to losing that.

    Our nation is STRONG- strong enough to get thru the occasional bobble and clear air turbulence. The people of our nation are strong. If the US was such a horrible place, would we have thousands of people trying to hike, swim, crawl and tunnel their way in here? Can't recall ever seeing people build a homemade boat, and try to flee Key West for Cuba.

    Old military axiom- improvise, overcome, adapt. Americans have been MASTERS of doing that. Have there been hard times financially? Depends on your frame of reference.

    Our "poor" live in houses with electricity and running water. They have cars, TV sets, cell phones, and a refrigerator with food in it. The folks that call that "poor" have never SEEN places where having a well to get clean drinking water is heaven. Complainers about the safety of vaccinations have never seen 4 of your five children die due to preventable childhood disease. Lived where- if you were REAL lucky, you worked 18 hours a day to stay alive. Complain about politicians and the police? Try that when the politician is Kim Jong Idiot, or the police are the Ton-Ton Macoutes.

    We got it DAMNED good. Have for 244 years. I'm looking forward to the next 244.

    Flags flying everywhere - the red, white, and blue. Rattle of firecrackers, bottle rockets, and outstanding displays of sky rockets. Folks enjoying each others' company in back yards, front porches, and even parades without fear of anything other than warm beer. Don't know how it is in your neighborhood, around here life is GREAT ! God HAS blessed the U.S.A.

    Thank You for the Video! Being a Vet, American Citizen and Patriot, this song brings a tear to my eyes every time I hear it!
    Thinking about the sacrifices both military and citizens have made to make America what it is. I just wish some had the same respect today.
    But Happy 4th to all here on the Forum !
    And if you were to call my Cell Phone everyday, you will hear Lee Greenwood's God Bless America Song until I answer. And it has been that way for years!:)

    Many have tried to bring "Old Glory" down. None have succeeded.
    And Joe Biden, et al, will not succeed either.
