Happy 4th of July to All

I was going to pen a woke July 4th blog, but lost my desire to mock my fellow Americans — because it’s just not that fun anymore. It’s easy for me to sit back and coast and revel at the lunacy, but much much harder when I have to think about my children and their children and how all of this manifests itself over time.

July 4th used to mean mats of firecrackers being strung together amidst beer cans and people whistling in the streets, throwing M-80s at one another — a smokey haze of blue and red and the overwhelming smell of gunpowder. By the end of the night, a few lost fingers, several dead — but most of us were happy because we got to light shit up. It was the anarchy and the violence of 4th of July that made us happy, which is probably the main driver of what is driving today’s BLM riots.

We’re way past social reform and anti-racism, bordering now and encroaching into outright civil revolt. Again, and I’ve said this before, both sides of the aisle (I hate that fucking expression) hate this country for different reasons. It’s only the far left that draws the far right into the center and vice versa. The center representing status quo and pro-American ideals — ensconced in war and crony capitalism and profligate spending etc.

Eventually, the tinder-box will explode and you’ll truly hate living here, which is why I am the fuck out of here at my earliest convenience. Most of you will stay and suffer amidst social discord, absurd healthcare expenses, taxes, and a cultural disease that only gets worse by the year. Your only respite will be to watch your youth die, via cable news shows, in stupid and needless wars overseas — because industry demands it and empires are cool and fun to build.

Having said all of that, I enjoy the company of my fellow Americans of all colors and political backgrounds. I couldn’t give a fuck about it and just want to laugh and drink and be entertained, eat and then cavort. After done, cavort some more. I hope you enjoy your holiday and remember the days as a boy when American meant something to you — a magical time when we were the good guys and the flag was cherished because it represented freedom.

Cheers

    Cheers!

    So what’s going on in the Birthplace of Freedom in the America?

    Note: With the health of the community top-of-mind, Wawa Welcome America — in consultation with the City of Philadelphia — WILL NOT HOST FIREWORKS as a part of the Fourth of July festival 2020.
    Instead, the grand fireworks show from 2019 will be broadcast following the VIRTUAL July 4th concert!!!

    Wooo Hooo!!!

    The theme of this year’s celebration is a virtual Cage Party! Yea.

    Brought to you by the Land of the Caged and the Home of the Cowering!!!

    If you were wondering what the end looks like; now you know.
    It’s all very sad. In fact it’s pathetic. But freedom has fleeted.

    Good song from America’s better days:

      Congrats to essential Wawa stores on their record profits!

      So sorry to their competitors, mom & pop, non-essential pizza, sandwich, burger and other restaurants. You’re non-essential.

      As one of our fine representatives AOC tweeted: “It’s vital that Governors maintain restrictions on businesses until after the November Elections because economic recovery will help Trump be re-elected. A few business closures or job losses is a small price to pay to be free from his presidency.”

      And you thought it was about safety. Ha ha ha. It’s never been about safety.
      Back into your cages, you whipped dogs!

    It still represents all of that. You elected an orange fool and you sit in disbelief at the results of your pandering. Get the fuck outta here. Goddamn idiot.

      Pro tip: career, leftist bureaucrats, politicians, and assorted lowlifes shouldn’t misuse our intelligence community to spy domestically on perceived opponents and then lie, baldly, to our courts about their misdeeds. That just gives a great, big stick to a populist president. Foolish.

      They say the mountains of Panama are nice. Go there immediately. You’d double your foolishness not to bet on those with 300mm guns and 2 billion rounds of ammo.

    You’d miss the craziness and paranoia and all the energy that comes from that.

    You’d also get completely fucked by the US tax system that will take your money no matter where you live.

    And you will not be permitted to escape by renouncing your US citizenship.

    The US extraterritoriality of its laws puts China to shame.

    I understand that living in America is embarrassing and the Republican Party is destroying the country, but just disengage from all of that stuff and enjoy your life,
    love your family, clip your coupons, play in the market and screw the rest.

    I don’t see any news on the taking down and destruction of the Statue of Liberty.
    Being a white chick celebrating 7/4/1776, one would imagine that to go too….Maybe there is hope for US after all.

    BTW that’s a lovely image you posted. Thanks
