Happy 4th of July to all my US friends, my American loved ones, and of course my little Yankee Mikaela.
241 years ago the unity of the United States of America came to be.
241 years ago those who signed that declaration never could have imagined the civil wars, the race and class divisions, the fact that number 45 would be a complete and utter buffoon.
What the signing of the declaration could predict was the fierce pride, loyalty, patriotism, and UNITY that the Americans would come to have. The loyalty to fight for their country through thick and thin. Whether that be against a foreign foe, or one in the White House. I have to say, as the reality sets in that we all might be stuck with Ass Pimple for the full four years of his term, I’ve never been more proud of my US family and friends.
I salute you for standing up for women.
I salute you for standing up for landed immigrants, second and third generation Americans, and refugees, that this current administration would see banished.
I’m proud of my older sibling and the bulk of that great nation who refuse to be lumped into the shit pile that are the people who are blindly backing a reality television host…I refuse to even give him the honor of calling him a “star.”
I’m proud of the way so many Americans are calling him, his children, and his administration out every single day of his tenure in office.
I love that there is no backing down.
I love that the country, as it did 241 years ago is coming together to say we are strong, we are free, and we are UNITED.
I can honestly say in all the years that I’ve walked this earth; there has never been a more appropriate time for our family to the South to celebrate the fact that you are in fact the United States of America. Regardless of the few who would like the world to believe that you are not, I for one have been blown away by the great many who have shown them otherwise. Standing up to injustices left, right and centre.
Happy 4th of July friends, we hope you know that now, more than ever you are in our hearts and prayers, and we believe that you will win this “war” against this backward, repressive administration. You’ve been fighting for many months, so let today be what it is. A day to celebrate all the victories you’ve had in your fight in the past, and since Ass Pimple was elected almost a year ago.
This is by far my favorite anthem…
Oh say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thru the night that our flag was still there.
Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
