Happy Independence Day, may this be the year we take our Independence back...…...and live up to the ideals of this country that all persons are created equal...and should be treated so

My classical radio station today is playing pretty much all American music, much of it “patriotic.” I do realize that Victor Herbert (“Babes in Toyland,” “Naughty Marietta,” many others you’ve probably heard) died in 1924, when we were so deep in denial we didn’t know there WAS such a thing as denial. But listening to his “American Fantasy” (or Fantasie or Fantasia – whatever) and hearing “Dixie” included is still extremely jarring.
NPR tweets the Declaration of Independence line by line every Fourth of July. Last year (and apparently this year) they got (are getting) a lot of hate from the right because, apparently, they confuse King George III with Orange Judas (understandable, but not expected from his own.) The Smithsonian also has a tradition of publishing (with updates) the article “Do American Indians celebrate the 4th of July?” An excellent read. Needs a hanky warning.

I agree - Not-So-Happy 4th of July this year. Let us hope that next year's will be happier. It will be, if we progressives get our arses to the polls and cast informed ballots.

I also agree with your TomCat. that this is a not so proud or happy 4th of July. With all that this disrespectful as*hole in the W.H.has done to turn our country upside down makes me very unhappy. I honestly thought he would of been gone by now. I'm not giving up hope yet. He still can be booted out with all of his cronies.
Thanks TomCat

Resist and never give up the thought that maybe next year Independence Day will be a better day for us all.

The graphic is telling! Drumpf aka His Orangeness, and Republicans do not provide a celebratory atmosphere. Fortunately, they cannot destroy 240 years of history and accomplishments, only the past 2 years, and unfortunately, set up the country for future failures!.

I'm trying to think of it this way....we're half-way through the wait for November, when we WILL reclaim the Senate/House and begin to overturn the evil regime of the treasonous groper!
