a triple Herm post. Tremendous.
I think I just became a patriot...
For America to rise up and achieve great things.
Thanks Kate! That’s what I am fightin’ for!
Raising the flag...
...it's the best of both worlds, in a sense.
Have a most excellent Fourth of July, everyone!
Our day of independence does not celebrate storming a Jail, starting a civil war, or any act of violence. we honor a magnificent statement of human asperation. That's what separates us from the rest of the world. Well, that, and the fact that we are fucking awesome.
America, all others are second place or lower...
In the words of the great Kenny Powers, "I honestly just feel that America is the greatest country and all the other ones aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism."
I would like to thank our country's forefathers for creating a nation that allows me to sit on my butt and post on blogs for a good portion of every day.
It depresses me to know that I have to spend my Independence Day in China.
I've never been to China, but hope to get there one day. Today, I'm driving my American made car across (part of) America with a cooler full of Koegel's hotdogs, and I'm happy as hell.
Car is a Nissan. I love her more than apple pie.
I doubt any of you will get indefinitely detained.
Come to America; get your dick sucked.
WELCOME TO EARF.
To the greatest country in the world. God Bless the USA!
Murrrica....fergodsakes!!!! Someone needs to post Hulk Hogan's "real American" theme....
Because FUCK YEAH. That's why.
Greatest blog in the greatest country in the world!
Pool, music, BBQ, friends, fireworks..."god bless America!!!"
...and a great sight it is too.
I actually was called in to work today because of last night's round of weather, but I'll find some time to grill and consume beer later, of course. For your further entertainment, here is the great (and British, but he played an American on TV) Hugh Laurie singing his tribute to America on "A Bit Of Fry And Laurie":
A big happy birthday to my American brothers from up here in Canada. Enjoy the celebrations, and have one for me!
And a belated Happy Dominion Day to yourselves. (Sorry, I just always liked it better than Canada Day.)
A couple of things America got right:
Cars, and Freedom.
That chase scene may have been the best ever! (Only one close was from The Seven-Ups. The scenes and chase car was driven by the same guy in both, so it’s understandable.)
...but boat-sized cars, like those in this commercial for Pontiac in 1969:
Happy 4th of July
Something I did last night!
Back to Back World War Champs.
Got a thirty rack of bud, a lake, a beautiful day, and about three hundred bucks of fireworks in the bed of my Chevy. Happy birthday, America, you sexy beast.
Watching team america. Drinking a Budweiser. In Washington dc. Lets go
Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN
"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
"You don't like spaghetti and meatballs? Well, this is America, if you don't like them, you might as well just get the hell out!"
Happy 4th everyone! We live in the greatest country on Earth! God Bless America!
Happy 4th and God Bless America.
Morning spent studying for the GMAT and hitting the gym, but had time to start slow cooking the ribs at 9am and they'll be good to go for the BBQ at 3.
