The unanimous Declaration 

I was listening to talk radio the other day... as I am wont to do... and I heard a some people breathlessly inform the host that they just couldn't bring themselves to celebrate Independence Day, due to the outcome of the last Presidential and the personage that currently embodies the office at 1600 Pennsylvania. They were simply too downtrodden...

I wanted to reach through the radio and choke them.

If your opinion of this great nation, if your love of freedom and justice is so impacted by one person, if all your hopes for the future of this - our Republic - are tied to ONE MAN, then you are worthless and weak... and I have as much time for you as I would for the slimiest, most infantile member of Code Pink.

There are men fighting and dying tonight FOR YOU. And you can't bring yourself to light a sparkler and drink a brew, if for no other reason than in THEIR honor? You disgust me.

If you don't like the way things are going, f'in SACK UP and do something about it. But don't come sobbing to me about how shallow your life is that ONE MAN made you feel so sad you couldn't fight to set your country back to what you believe is the right course. And don't tell me about how you are so down in the dumps that you couldn't take the time to remember - and celebrate - that this is the GREATEST NATION that HAS BEEN or ever WILL BE. Your pity party bores me.
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."
