PERSON WHO COMPLAINS ABOUT ALL OF THE 4TH OF JULY DEATHS:
Survival of the fittest. Most times its just the stupid that die. Stupidity is rampant in youth.. I know. We used to blow up junk cars at my friends dad's qaurry with dynamite for kicks on the 4th, thile consuming alcohol. I must be one of the smart and fittest ones, Im still alive. Go me.

PARANOID AND CONSTRAINED PERSON: Buzz the nurse.. theyll loosen the belts on that ol straight jacket.

Rest of you fellow nuts:

Its a good day to celebrate. Its the birth of OUR country. WHy be ashamed of it or buy into what the PTB obviously want you to.. gloom dispair agony and no way to get out of it. Stop playing the fool and give up the game youve allowed yourself to get wrapped up in. I LOVE this country with all of her warts and boils.. like I said in another thread.. this country is in its infancy. You dont abandon a baby with colic.. unless youre an idiot. Dont abandon this baby... the USA is one hell of a place folks.
Get out a little, travel, try to acclimate into other countries and cultures.. get a taste and you will be running back HOME. Being American is unique among all... now we need to take it back. It will come. Unfortunately you that are still playing the PTB game wont be around to enjoy her when she rises again... or by then we will be so tired of your incessant debbie downer whining we stick you all in fema camps with tons of tissues for your widdle tears.


Im joking but you get the idea.. hopefully.



edited because : I never use spell check.. I figure if you dont get what Im typing you havent been on the net too long. Unfortunately this was a completely BAD misspelling!

Still very much alive in my part of the country. There were so many events you could not attend them all. A gathering tonight of thousands in the park and along the riverbanks to share in the festivities, it was awesome! Family, fun, and patiotism was rampant!

The town was decked out in her stars and stripes, a ride down historic Broad ST was a treat, a parade with military old and young to honor this afternoon was attented as well, by thousands.

It is almost 1 in the morning now here, and I am still hearing fireworks.


It was a little more sedate than previous years, but not much here. Folks at the lake going crazy with illegal fireworks for all of us to see playing patriotic music at ear shattering levels we heard blocks away! LOL! LoVE iT!!The cops dont bother. My state is going the way of California.. we all need a little pick me up here before we're taxed to death!

One of the neighbors must have spent 500 bucks on those big ones he bought a state over. We were teasing him and he said he put it on the credit card.. that his stellar credit wont mean # soon anyway. COnverssation this year was a heck of a lot different, but still the real passion for this country is out there. Dont let the downers fool ya

Its because every single thing we do as Americans is now illegal or requires a paid "permit" that requires, above and beyond the money, a massive dose of brown nosing sycophantization.

Now Illegal:

FIREWORKS
BARBECUING
RIDING A BIKE WITHOUT A LICENSE
BEING AN UNESCORTED LAD OUT FISHING
CAMPING
HUNTING
MAKING AND SELLING CRAFTS
REBELLION

The list could go on forever.

I remember when you could smoke, buy dynamite at the hardware store, enjoy some firecrackers and drink beer on the sidewalk on INDEPENDENCE DAY.

But now, we're all home hiding from the control freak parasites that have choked our economy and our Liberty to death.

Enjoy it anyway: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Man, where the hell do you live?

I know of none of your listed activities to be illegal. Rbellion is close, I suppose it depends on what act or form of rebellion you take, you could do something illegal whilst being rebellious.

Cone on over to GA, you can camp, hike, fish, ride a bike, whatever. Have some fun.

My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy! ~Thomas Jefferson

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. ~Erma Bombeck

They try to tone it down to enhance the spirit of "multiculturalism", an insidious plot. All part of the big swindle.

No one considers themselves American anymore. There is all this talk all the time of African-Americans, Italian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Jewish Americans, etc. etc....all this PC BS is "promote diversity" which is quite simply to destroy any sense of unity among the people.

And of course, they don't want to really remind anyone about fighting against tyranny...


The PC BS is the main killer of all holidays. Just look at Christmas. The stores do not say "MARRY CHRISTMAS" any more but Happy Holidays instead. The same thing is happening to the 4TH of July. It is happening to all holidays. Just give it a few more years and even the banks will be open on the 4th unless it is on a weekend. And a few years after than it will be Christmas. I can see it now. In 10 or 15 years at this rate the kids will get up on Christmas morning open the presents and then hop on the school bus for school be it too will have lost to the PC BS. The PC crap is going to kill us all.

Up until the mid 60's you could buy dynamite at the hardware store. It was easier than getting a box of ammo is today. And it was the TNT base stuff just like the Army used. People used it all the time to blast tree stumps and blast rocks to clean land for building. People almost never used it to kill people with. 99% of people killed by it did it to themselves by miss using it. The word "terrorist" had not even been invented yet most likely. It just goes to show you how fall we have fallen and it is still a long was to the bottom.

Good for you. The more people that feel that way the better. If enough people feel that way then maybe the fall can be pushed back a few more years.

What happened to the Fourth of July? A nation with lots of self oriented people, that`s what happened. It isn`t about a nation, or a nation of people anymore, it`s about the self, and what the self thinks and wants without reguards to everyone else. A day such as the Fourth, is set aside so that we may think about our nation as a whole, and this interrupts the self thought process.

What we are seeing now, is a new kind of war. Not like the kind of war we see each and everyday in the news. But a war of self versus all. We are now being told that it is selfish to celebrate our countries independence, when it isn`t selfish at all, not when it is about a nation of so many different races who come together to fight for what they feel is right and to protect that which others want to take away from them. How many other countries can say that they have as many races living together within their borders as this country?

We are also now seeing what happens when the self(greedy ones) can`t have their own way over the all(humanity overall). They are collapsing the system. It is their way of getting even, just like a child throwing a tantrum when they are told that they must share their toys with others. That child starts breaking those toys, as in "I`ll show them".

They can destroy the economy, and the money all they want, it will do them no good in the end. They forget, humanity isn`t stupid or as brainwashed as they may think. Let them have their fake money and propped up economy, for all the good it will do them in the end. They don`t have what we have...............each other. While they are setting back thinking that they took us down, we will be out growing food and sharing it with each other. And they can eat their money.

So, what will happen to those self oriented people in the end? Well, even self oriented people get hungry and need to eat also, just like those humans they put down, ridicule and want to control.


Sorry if this went off topic and seems like a rant, but to me, it explains what you are seeing right now.

Socialists don't celebrate independence, they celebrate dependence.

Do you think everyone should still be able to buy dynamite at the local hardware store? I don't. I am appreciative to know far too many people who have no business with a stick of dynamite, legal or illegal, will not be able to simply walk into a store and buy a stick.

Fixer.. before you answer.. remember this is the age of " mommy didnt pet me enough so I need prozac cuz I keep twisting my barbies heads off and setting puppies on fire..."

Then again the older I get the more I really do think maybe this one darwin idea of survival of the fittest should be enforced or at the very least allowed to occur!

OT:
Now that they can`t buy that dynamite or gun to kill someone with, they can just go get a short piece of two by four and beat someone to death then.

Do we then outlaw everything that could be made into a weapon, or, do we outlaw humans all together?

People kill people, no matter what it is they want to use to do the job. I say, outlaw PC.

TO Space Cadet and Dixie70

NO!!
We have fallen way to far for that. Alot people today should no be within 10 feet of a fire cracker let alone TNT. The whole world has went to He**.
It gets worse every day. I am scared of most of the people I met just walking down the street. Half of them look like they are on something or should be. The good old days are long gone never to return. I wished I had a time machine just so I could go back and live out my life in a time when you did not even have to lock you front door. When you could leave tools in the front yard and go back and find them a week later. When you did not have to watch your back 24/7.
