Happy Fourth of July!!!

I absolutely LOVE this holiday. Memorial Day runs a close second. Then Christmas. Anyway, I love anything patriotic and I love celebrating my Americanness. It is such an awesome (and, to those less fortunate in other parts of the world, highly desirable) privilege to live in a nation with so many freedoms!!

No, I'm not one of those crazies who wears every last American-flag-covered item they can find at their local Walmart. I actually know someone who does this and although they are a very endearing person, this particular habit of theirs makes me gnash my teeth. Especially since you aren't supposed to do this.

But I am fiercely patriotic. I choke up when I hear "The Star-Spangled Banner." I boo-hiss any American who doesn't have any American pride. Said people are DAMN lucky to be Americans and to have the freedom to run their little protests about how they're ashamed of our president and our country. Honestly, people who would rather live in another country or in their home country should go. Now.

Don't get me started on this woman.

Anyway, I hope all of you true wonderful Americans have a lovely holiday and weekend!!!

Amen sister. I'm all about being proud to be here, and grateful for my freedom. If the rest of them would leave, there'd be a little more breathing room. ;)
Happy Fourth!
