“Today isn’t just about relaxing with family and friends. It’s not just about grilling, fireworks and carefree celebrations; being an American is a great privilege and honor. Take a minute to think about how lucky we truly are to live here, and then together, let’s work together to be great citizens for the future generations of this nation.” – Amanda Radke in Independence Day is more than just grilling & fireworks [via beefmagazine.com]


  1. Let’s take this day to reflect on the sacrifices our ancestors made to secure our independence and freedom. Let’s also recommit ourselves to do everything within our power to preserve that freedom for our children and grandchildren. What we have is precious and unique in this world. May it always be so.

        • I must respectfully disagree with you. It works very well for the purposes intended by those who run it.

        • You’re right, however we were on the topic of celebrating Independence Day, not communism of which all true Americans abhor.

      • This nation faces grave threats from within- not the least of which being millions of students who have been brainwashed into hating America and its founding. In my more than 65 years as a proud citizen, I have never been more concerned about our future. Decades of progressive ideology, indoctrination, uncontrolled immigration and political stupidity and corruption have taken a heavy toll and will ultimately destroy this great nation if not checked and reversed. I pray that happens.

        • Totally agree. It’s time the conservatives wake up and realize 99.9% of the demonrats are communists and hate our country as it was founded. They all want to change it to some kind of hell hole. Until this is understood, it will be impossible and America will not be truly great again. Trump is doing a great job but it is a huge up hill battle.

  2. “Happy 4th of July from the People’s Republic of M—assachusetts!” Where the MA Residents get to celebrate “State Approved 👍 Privilages and Limited Freedom!”


    • Happy 4th to you and yours from Collectthegunsicut!
      The revolution started in the North East, fitting that it’s atrophying here.
      Love live the Republic!

  3. Somehow I tend to draw parallels between what has happened and is happening now to the USA; and Robert Heinlein’s two novels The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and The Cat Who Walks Through Walls.
    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand might be good analogy as well.

    • This is the 4th or so reference to The Moon is a Harsh Mistress that I’ve see in the past couple of days across several web-sites that I visit. Thinking it’s time I read that book and The Cat Who Walks Through Walls again.

  4. Happy 4th…weren’t free until men fought and died. May we have the guts and will to keep that freedom. By any means necessary🇺🇸

    • Trump caught flack for calling some countries shithole countries. Most counties are shithole countries. This used to be a shithole country.

      Then, some brave men picked up rifles and did something about it. That’s what it takes. Force of arms. Almost without exception.

      • yep wish more people would wake up and accept that that IS what it takes. talk is cheap, politics is dirty, and free people must carefully watch all comers into the political arena and be prepared to take violent action against them at the first sign of treachery. sadly it is th only way.

  5. Gonna fly my quad copter right into and above the local firewrorks display tonight.
    Makes for great footage on a big screen.

  6. The local Democrats and the Moms Demand loons were passing out pamphlets at out town’s local parade this morning. They were running up to give my family some of their literature but when they got a look and my father and myself they changed their minds and just gave us disapproving looks.

    The Republican floats yelled compliments about my NRA hat and threw us a handful of candies so that was fun.

  7. Can someone please tell the pod eaters that “Life Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness” thing is the opportunity not guaranteed.
    My ancestors legally immigrated to the most free country on earth. God bless them and God bless America.

  8. If you believe in and honor the history of the greatest nation to ever exist on the Earth then it is “Independence Day”.

    If you don’t, then it’s the “4th of July” which is interchangeable with “April 1” or “Mar 17” any other meaningless date.

  9. When the first of my ancestors arrived in Virginia, Washington was a little kid and Jefferson wasn’t even born yet. My ancestors and my relatives fought in every war and police action this country ever had with the sole exception of Vietnam. I am an historian by nature and I look at what has been done to this country over the past hundred years starting with Wilson and then FDR and built upon by many of those that followed and it makes me sick to see what they have done to America.

    This Fourth of July I rejoice in what our country still is, and I weep for how deep we have fallen into the trap of big government destruction of our liberty. Wishing you all a happy Independence Day!

  10. Most people don’t know but all land owners voted back then. White women and free blacks who owned land did vote.
    But by 1810 or so things changed.
