Why do us Americans celebrate Independence Day, when we aren't Even Free!
Years ago, when I was young, okay, many years ago, I would shoot off fireworks for the 4th of July!




Now that I am much, much, older and wiser, I ask, "Why do us Americans celebrate Independence Day, when we aren't Even Free!"


We are slaves, why even celebrate that fact! I don't anymore....


Q&A please.......

We are still clinging to whats left of the 1st and the 2nd amendments. Until those are gone we are somewhat free. Let it be a wake up call.

Re: Why do us Americans celebrate Independence Day, when we aren't Even Free!
I am just to sick to celebrate the destruction of our earth!




I am to sick with grief! I have finally, after months of warning, surrendered, and gave way to tears of much sorrow...


Revelation 11:18 KVJ

"And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth."


As our earth dies, drowning in oil, gasping for the last breath, people of the world, celebrate in great joy, with fireworks? As we are chained to old ways, we rejoice?


I am sick, with grief, for what is to come. May this be your last Joyous celebration. For the creator, and judgment is yet to come.

I condemn you Obama, BP and all the world leaders to this distress that is to befall us all!


Glory to the Creator, Hallelujah!

Free to hang at the all-you-can eat for triple portions

Free to by assault weapons and play Rambo

Free to have no idea what goes on in far-flung foreign corners of the planet, like Canada.

Free to believe national mythology and not history

Free to feel superior.

Free to be outraged at BP and run around in gas-guzzling SUVs.

Free to listen to believe in gold, Ron Paul, speed-loaders and frozen pizza.

Free to claim God and live like the Devil.

Free to look down on every other country as inferior.

Freedom, or Free to be Dumb?

Geez guys, get your act together. on the original Fourth of July, new American law allowed only one white man in 32 had the right to vote. Blacks were officially declared to be 3/5ths human. Indians didn't even rate. Often cruel Chattel Slaver dominated much of the economy. Several states maintained official religion. The two dominant Protestant religions were predestinarian Calvinist, and held to a theology that said you were destined for heaven or hell before you were born no matter what you did. Your first leader Geo. Washington was a high Free Mason. Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence was an anti-Bible Deist. Franklin hung out in French bordellos. Tom Paine died angry, anti-American, and scathingly anti-Christian. Most of the American population never supported the revolution. Hundreds of thousands moved north into Canada. Your bloodiest war, and most of your battle deaths were against each other in your Civil War.

You are already sheepified, stupified, and obese. THEY poisioned you! Clean out, clean up, and get your own lives back! Allons Enfants!

I remember those incidents at those rallies, and both angered me. I also remember the press being banned from reporting things about 9/11, the wars, Katrina, and now the GOM. Seems all kinds of crazy that only now people are all hot and bothered their freedoms are gone. WTH kind of delayed reaction is that?

I celebrate the 4th because I get an extra day off.

we are still chained to the queen of england too. I hate this day. I don't feel like celebrating any Independence day! We are dependent on OIL, we are dependent on the Feds for help in a emergency, we are dependent on social security, and health care....



I don't feel much like celebrating. I am sick when I hear the fireworks. I am staying indoors, and at home....

"If any man's money can be taken by a so-called government, without his own personal consent, all his other rights are taken with it; for with his money the government can, and will, hire soldiers to stand over him, compel him to submit to its arbitrary will, and kill him if he resists."
~Lysander Spooner, excerpt from a letter to Grover Cleveland, 1886

"Every man who puts money into the hands of a 'government' (so called), puts into its hands a sword which will be used against him."
~Lysander Spooner

"If our fathers, in 1776, had acknowledged the principle that a majority had the right to rule the minority, we should never have become a nation; for they were in a small minority, as compared with those who claimed the right to rule over them."
~Lysander Spooner

"The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that -- however bloody -- can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave."
~Lysander Spooner

"A man is none the less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years.'"
~Lysander Spooner

"Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria.
The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire
."
~Heinlein

"If I could have convinced more slaves that they were slaves, I could have freed thousands more."

I feel that Ed (TV) is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is now a moral good in this country. It's its own virtue.

Then the best course of action is certainly to sit and wait until it is as bad in your country, I guess.

Seriously, that is the dumbest argument ever, but for some reason I hear it all the time. "It is really bad elsewhere, so don't bitch until you/we have reached the same level!"
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
