The Fourth of July – Why it is worth Celebrating.
The Fourth of July and why it is worth celebrating — People especially on the hard left of the political climate have come to think everything in America is bad. Just cruise through the headlines of the major news sources and you will find articles that are definitely an all-out assault on America.
Nike (who I have boycotted since Kaepernick) has said American shoes that have anything to do with America are bad. Betsy Ross is racist after all for those liberals that have not even taken the time to read our history books. Slavery was are ultimate sin but more than a couple hundred years ago it was not thought to be evil. How many indentured servants entered the United States that were not black? How many of those people were abused? Were they not a free people until their debt was paid or has American Liberals forgot to read the piece of history. Did we not fight a civil war over slavery or was that just fake news written in the history books. Perhaps if Lincoln or Lee were alive today they would tell you a different story.
July 4th 1776 is a date in the history books but does the left even know what it means? Liberals are up in arms because Trump wants to have tanks at the Fourth of July celebration. So bad – and evil, but does the left even know what our Independence celebration is about – or is it just a day to smoke dope, BBQ hot dogs and go camping? Didn’t we fight for our Independence or was that just fake news too?
Back to the Fourth — There is some small communities within California that still remember what July 4th is about. Pollock Pines, a small community in the Sierra Nevada goes back to tradition to celebrate our independence with a small town parade – a pancake breakfast at the fire station, games for kids and adults at the senior center and music and food for evening entertainment. There is no Liberal or Conservative banners flying in this community. It is indeed a celebration of our Independence and our great country. People do read the history books in this community and do get upset when American values are trampled. Whether they are a Democrat or Republican they come together and celebrate this time in America. I guess you could say that Pollock Pines is a community with old school Democrats and Republicans that aren’t hard left or right. They understand the meaning of the flag and many have sacrificed their lives in service to the military or have lost children that have given service.
In the mean time have a wonderful Fourth of July and remember why we celebrate our Independence.
