Independence Day

I may or may not be doing any posting tomorrow. Depends on just how lazy I get. So here's to a great Independence Day. Toss back a cold one, chew on a hot dog, a burger, maybe an ear of corn while visiting with friends and/or family.

In the meantime, try to ignore all that fucking loud, obnoxious "4TH OF JULY BLOWOUT", "HOT DEALS ON COOL WHEELS", "INDEPENDENCE DAY SELL-ABRATION" bullshit which nowadays is seemingly the basis of the holiday.

Instead, try to remember why exactly the hell we have the day off:

















It wasn't an easy task, but I sure as hell appreciate it.


"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined."

-Patrick Henry
