Perhaps to some.  But I think over time it has become more of a time for BBQ and beers in the backyard.  Don't know if parents really teach their children what that day really means.

And, oh yes....let's not forget the fireworks!!  Cheesy

Acting was something I wanted to do since I was 10 and saw my first movie, I was so captured by the action guys. Jimmy Cagney was my favorite. Without realizing it, I could see he had tremendous timing and vitality.

Now, a lot of the over the top patriotism is the aftermath of 9/11 and the resulting culture war over the response to it. The neocons cleverly couched their schemes in patriotic terms, painting their critics as un-American. That worked, so the Left is now doing the same thing with the great replacement. After all, America is a land of immigrants! You’ll note that most displays of patriotism in the mass media rely on people who “look like America” by not looking anything like Americans. Patriotism has been turned on its head.

There’s also the fact that the people in charge have nothing much to offer us, so like any business with a bad product, they have invested in marketing. This is a well documented phenomenon in business. When a company’s product is not selling, they ramp up the marketing, promising that it is new and improved. That’s the vibe I get with our ruling class flag waving. You’ll note they never sell open borders and globalism as something good for you. Instead, they appeal to your patriotism, claiming it is good for the country.

Saw (don't know what show) interviews with people "on the street" who know nothing of what the July fourth holiday is all about.



Jesse Waters had one of those Saturday.  The people did not even know what we were celebrating.  He asked one guy when the Declaration was signed......1986.  SAD

Michigan residents throw July Fourth party after neighbor's threatening note 'backfires'
By Kaitlyn Schallhorn | Fox News


Residents of a Michigan township fought for their right to party after one killjoy neighbor threatened their Fourth of July fireworks.

Just before the summer holiday, an anonymous letter was sent to several residents of a Chesterfield Township subdivision, promising to make their “lives miserable for days and months to come” if fireworks were set off on the Fourth of July. The letter’s author worked an early morning shift and had said last year’s celebration had caused him or her to lose sleep.

"If this happens again this year, I will make yours, and your neighbors’ lives miserable for days and months to come. I will take my frustrations out on the whole Dove Lane block, and I’ll keep the retaliations lasting forever,” the letter read. “You don’t know when I’ll retaliate, but it WILL happen, and it will happen over and over again. NOTHING will be ruled out in regards to how I retaliate.”

Apparently a disgruntled Grinch doesn't just come out on Christmas!  Cheesy

It never ceases to amaze me how sick and hateful people can get. Last night I was watching the happy birthday concert sponsored by PBS. Here you have Jimmy Buffet and The Beach Boys singing Kokomo and Fun, Fun, Fun. I turned to hubby and said “who can hate a country that produces this?....

Many. I’m afraid.

For sure!  The creativity and innovation that this country has spawned is unbelievable if you think about it.  I never hear the haters saying they are going to go somewhere else.

"Well, she got her daddy's car and she drove to the hamburger stand now
Seems she forgot all about the library like she told her old man now
And with the radio blasting going cruising just as fast as she can now
And she'll have fun fun fun till her daddy takes her T-bird away"

I used to do that.  Tell my dad I was going to the library, but go driving all around Chicago, especially Lake Shore Drive.  I got caught when he noticed how many miles I was putting on his car!

A great country!

DID America produce these that think how BAD it is?  I don't think so,
maybe SATAN did.  You're a sweety newt.

Don’t understand your comment Dew. Are you saying the songs I mentioned are satanic?
