Happy Fourth of July!
Happy Fourth of July, American readers!
I understand the loss to Ghana in the World Cup may have dampened your spirit, but buck up. Because England did MUCH, MUCH WORSE. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
And speaking of the English, let’s not forget that today’s the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration Independence, thus freeing the country from the British Empire to pursue our own destiny. I like to imagine we’re the rebellious kid of the British Empire. There’s a lot of things our country’s done wrong, but there’s a lot of things it’s done right, too. Politics may be a mess these days, but you got to remember: that’s what this country fought for. Eventhough there are people out there who don’t agree with you, the one thing we can agree on is that they have as much a right to express themselves as you do.
Hell, pretty much the entire Bill of Rights is pretty damn awesome.
Remember to re-enact American history, eat a hot dog, and watch some fireworks. There’s a reason the Forefathers selected July to sign those documents Jefferson drafted up: because summer is party time!
