"Celebrate the Independence of Your Nation by Blowing Up a Small Piece of It"

Happy Fourth of July, folks.

If you're a conservative, I'm sure you'll continue celebrating our nation's tradition of freedom by calling for the execution of treasonous reporters and handing over all your civil liberties so you don't come down with the Islamocooties.

If you're a liberal, try this nice piece on patriotic dissent by E.J. Dionne, this column on the press by Nick Kristof, and an important reminder of why we're still the good guys.

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

thanks Otto. Personally, I enjoy rallying around protecting the flag from burning while wearing American flag shorts, which I sweat though, then leave a skid mark. But don't you dare burn them!

Cynic, cynic, cynics!

Why, oh WHY, do you all hate America so?

Why not be like our VP, Buckshot Dick, and celebrate the 4th like a true red, white & bluer . . . with a lil' NASCAR & then a lil' NASA:

Them is some good articles you linked to, OM. Especially Dionne's.

I spent the 4th the way it was meant to be spent: hiding in the bushes outside the 7-11 and taking pictures of immigrant types.
