Happy "Independence" Day!
While we celebrate our "independence" with BBQ's and fireworks, remember how many people died fighting a war just so we could be "free". And while we are actually free from Great Britain, now known as the United Kingdom, we are not a "free" country. The government just wants us to believe we are. We are owned by corporations, just like the government is run by them.
So, enjoy this day of pool parties and family get-togethers, drink copious amounts of beer or wine or whatever cocktail you enjoy, and appreciate the world we live in today, because it's all going to change very soon, and not in a good way.
