Freedom is Messy


I know a lot of people like to celebrate today. It’s the Fourth of July, also known as “Independence Day” because this is the anniversary of the initial signing of the Declaration of Independence. Woot!

But freedom is messy. Some people abuse it.

Take religion for example. If you give people freedom to choose their own religion some people will choose the right one, but others will choose to worship Allah or Buddha or Mumbo Jumbo. Some people will even use it as an excuse to not have religion at all!

If you give people freedom of speech some of them will say mean, offensive things. Before you know it you are giving people so much freedom that they are looking at dirty pictures and spouting off nonsense about lower taxes and stuff.

Don’t even get me started on giving rights to criminals and terrorists. If you aren’t guilty of a crime then you have nothing to hide, and what is wrong with squeezing a confession out of a guy the cops know is guilty?


So before you go out shooting off fireworks to celebrate freedom tonight, think about the possible consequences.

happy 4th

    That ain’t the “Democratic Party”. They may vote that way, but they don’t think that way. They do have it locked up for themselves, right now; that’s true. We are well into that single generation time period some former president or other warned us about, IMO.

    This may be the crankiest 4th of July post I’ve read.
    *hands klown a beer*

    Or, as Twitchy pointed out today, the tweets celebrating the 2,014th birthday of Obama’s America. We’re doomed! 😀

    I’m not in the mood for anything deep. I just want to blow stuff up, drink beer and eat barbecue and potato chips. I can’t even find my red white and blue shirt with the sparkles on it. I bet my husband gave it to Value Village and he is going to pay for that if he did.

      They are yelling at the government agents. And La Raza who are cursing them. And Hispanics are white if they self identify and know where their family came from in Spain. Or France for that matter as a bunch of French settled in Mexico. I have a college friend from Honduras. Her father immigrated from Philadelphia.

        They don’t know why they hate, or sometimes even what they hate. They THINK they do, but *clueless*. Basically, they simply hate themselves and blame their lack of self esteem and ego on “other people” because, like four year olds, ain’t nothin’ ever their fault.

    We’re watching Lone Survivor now, before the fireworks.

      I started the “John Adams” series last night. It’s perfect for a Fourth of July weekend.

    • angienc says:

      I watched Yankee Doodle Dandy earlier and now am watching Sgt. York — can’t get better than James Cagney and Gary Cooper for the 4th!

      I just ended up watching Captain America.

    • The Klown says:

      I watched Grease while drinking beer and then took a “nap”.

        Before the fireworks I watched the White Sox have a 5 run inning and continue to dominate Seattle until I had to leave for an awesome fireworks display that my little town does every year on the shore of Lake Michigan just north of Chicago.
        After the fireworks I came home to watch American Masters cover Mel Brooks. What a genius!!! My parents introduced us all to brilliance when they finally bought a television. Sid Caesar, Mel Brooks, Jack Paar, Steve Allen, Imogene Coca, etc. who in turn led us down the path of TrueType intelligent comedy.

      That looks lovely, but I can’t watch Hollywood on politics since the Great Obot Zombification of 2008: vote Obama or be racist. Some democracy. Buncha sanctimonious hypocrites.

      • leslie says:

        It was a good performance. And I had to keep reminding myself it was a performance. They must have believed what they were reading at that time. They may believe it still, but isolate, marginalize, and invalidate anyone who believes the same, but has a different interpretation.

    Anyone with a Kindle check the special offer when the screen is dormant. They are giving away one month of Amazon Prime. Full seasons of all HBO shows, digital library free shipping. Also anything you buy from them stays in your cloud forever free even if you do not have Prime. I used to buy from itunes but they charge you after so much and I buy a lot of music. You can set up play lists and move them on and off iPod.

    Thx for the tip.

    Also must add take a look at the kindle specials. 9 out of ten they are generic books but I got a 59 dollar chromebook for my niece. Not my brat another crud. 59 dollars. Nice little machine. Only problem is it will not run flash. Plays youtube, amazon and netflix videos but will not play embedded videos or games like pogo. 59 who cares. I do not work for Amazon or get any kick back. I just hate shopping. I buy stuff from Walmart but I cannot traverse those aisles. Department stores for me are akin to horror films. I use ship to store. Most of the time they have it and all I have to do is walk in swipe a card and walk out. Terrifying thing is that it is located same place as returns. There was a crazed woman there with a pool. She and a few friends brought in the whole thing. You could smell the chlorine. Thing was not a blow up kiddy pool it was metal and big I made my brat watch as it was brilliant. At first I wondered how this mad woman got by security with a pool but then she started screaming. N o one is paid enough to take that. From what I gathered she bought a pool but did not level the ground. Thousands of pounds pushing against a 200dollar cheap frame it collapsed. Sorry I am an asshole but I derived so much pleasure watching the episode.. Best part was they had the entire pool. Guess WAlmart has a very liberal refund policy because the young lady was like whatever I do not care about your story if you paid cash I will give it to you if you used a card you will geta refund. Lady did not have a reciept but sent one of her kids home to get it. The manager had removed the pool at this point and he was giving her money back. Guess he needed to know how she paid. Junior came back with a cash reciept and she got her 200. She walked off back into the store. She had no shame.
    I was embarrassed for her.
    People hate Catholics but I would never behave like this woman. I always worked paper routes, picking corn, pin boy at a bowling alley. I bought my school clothes with my own money. I bought my own school lunches. 20 bucks and I got a strip of five tickets.

    I earned something. My annoyance gets to reap the benefits of my life. Fuck manipulation about kids. I got mine I will work. Do not refer to me as cold. I hate excuses dumb beatch put up a pool on unlevel ground and then turns around and casts blame. Shut up.

    I have made a trillion mistakes but they are mine. I get the good and the bad. I I I I I I chose to sharel my life. With a brat. Kids suck they spend alot of money and always need you. They are not swimming pools wherecyou can just level the ground.

    I work hard for my baby girl. I. resent cries of unfair. Everything is unfair. I was born to teens but I got to live in London, Paris, Philly and New York.
    I commuted as fiull time student from Philly to New York and had three jobs. I worked at South Street SouvlaI, City Tavern and Magnolia Cafe.

    To be honest I do not give a rats ass about border stories. I care about my kid. Isuper glued my sneakers together but spent 40 on a Gryfinndor backpack from China. I think this is where dims are epic fail. We are the most generous nation ever. No country gives like we do. Doctors without borders is almost all American. Idiots with the border p r ignore the fact thst we will protect our own. Skin you alive before you touch my kid. My mother still throws her arm across the seat to protect me. She does not guard her face or protect herself even at 47 she slings her arm to drfend me. Epic fail because mothers protect their own children first. AND it is savage.

    Remember Janeane Garofalo? The super nasty Vile Prog? Air America? She is on Animal Planet’s America’s Cutest Cats making lame not interesting or funny comments about cat videos. She looks like she just wandered out of a homeless shelter or perhaps an asylum.
