Happy 4th Marcel.

As you celebrate the 4th, read this sometime today and reflect on the tyranny we fled.


… and lets never become tyrants in another people’s homeland or our own. God Bless patriots everywhere.

Happy 4th!

Happy Fourth of July Marcel!:smiley:

John Adams was right there at the birth of American freedom.

Independence Day, Adams wrote, “will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival.
It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.
You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory.
I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”

Happy 4th everyone. Enjoy!! :smiley:

Back to work tomorrow Kevin. Hope you had a good day along with all else here. :):smiley:

Thanks Marcel, I had a great day & am looking forward to a good but wet fireworks show tonight.

Hit 91 here today and Fireworks should start in a few minutes. :slight_smile:


Islamic terrorists are prisoners of a hijacked religion.

When those is the same religion deal with their radicals I might believe they are sincere in their disgust.

America was a British colony, the British army had a right to try to hold it. I’m glad they failed, but I respect their right to try to put down the insurgents. When the British sent 25,000 troops to New York, New York was British soil. I’m pleased the insurgents eventually won and sent the world’s largest army (at the time) back across the ocean.

Go read the declaration of independence carefully.

Oh, and I don’t recall our founding fathers sending terrorists to England, do you?

Declaring independence is short of actually being an independent country. But hey, I’m glad the insurgents eventually won or I might be having tea instead of lunch right now.

The point my dear Nick was that our founders understood the need to flee tyranny as it was antithetical to God given human rights.

Your glorification of terrorists hell bent on destroying this country is disgusting.

You will say that we invaded them. More bunk.

What is so sad is that you seem to believe that if we just leave the alone they will leave us alone.

Good luck finding evidence for that.

Neither do I. I don’t believe they sent terrorist, tanks or drones into other people’s countries.

You continue to act as if they did us no harm.

Screw that notion.

Huh? What the heck are you talking about?

Shooting at an invading army is not an act of terrorism. I know, you can’t fathom that the people living in the invaded country get to shoot back at the invader/occupier. And when they do, you call them “terrorists”, “insurgents”, or “religious extremists.” I call them patriots. Not my patriots, but patriots for their side. Their side has a right to resist invasion and occupation and is free to use deadly force to resist that invasion/occupation… the same deadly force I would use on them if they tried to set up a military occupation of Boulder, Colorado.
