You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4,
not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White
House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where
kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from
happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
?Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive,
but what they conceal is vital.?
I celebrate independence day by driving my government
inspected vehicle (which passes smog, emissions and
safety check) to the gas station, where I buy mandated
10% ethanol fuel. I wear my seat belt, keep my license
and registration handy for the DWI and seat belt check
points. The uniformed and heavily armed police are so
much nicer when I do everything they say. I go to the
county owned park, read the regulations. Pack in, pack
out, and fires only in the fireplaces provided. Do not
feed the ducks. I listen to government approved news on
the radio, eat USFDA inspected foods, and wave flags
from Walmart, made in China. I return home to a bed
with a matress "do not remove tag, under penalty of law"
have a big glass of chlorinated water, wee in a 1.6 GPF
toilet, and stumble off to bed, to dream of Monday when
I can go back to my legal and heavily taxed job.
God ^h^h^h Please bless America, one nation under
whatshisname. Can't say that in public any more.
Plus show up at a NASCAR event with Confederate Flags flying
high. I like the black Don't Tread on Me flag but this one is
better given our latest "outrage".
