Right, it's not the fourth today Riddick. When the fifth is up there now! LOL

We kind of do some real time travel into the future being off dated a day ahead. 😁 ⏰

⏳ What time does the DC/Abe Lincoln Memorial Mall parade start? I suppose Fox News will air it live. I heard MSNBC will stick with their abnormal programming according to the conservative radio talk shows last night.😑

POTUS Ike's inaugural parade contained 100 Patton tanks!πŸ˜„

Happy 4th of July! 243 years old and may not make it to 244. We are such a young country, compared to other countries (thousands of years) but some say the most evil. Liberty and Success will Not be tolerated for much longer, the demand for Surfdom can no longer be denied! :roll:

I will be enjoying a quiet 4th, being Greatful for what I have and would like to keep. Maybe watch some of those who hate and rage against, the very thing , that brings me such joy. Like, "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"

"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.[1] The phrase gives three examples of the "unalienable rights" which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator, and which governments are created to protect.

WITH OUT FORCING ME TO BE IN THE "HIVE", Bless the Individual, for what ever they want to do, just leave me alone!

Luckily MK, the beach we go to is in a protected cove - no great whites, although my son saw a dog shark....... We were lucky - scored the last parking spot :mrgreen:

Boom, there it is!!!!!! Enjoy - we're very lucky to live where we do - as are our Canadian friends....... :D

In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. 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.

8) Have a great evening that may include fake bombs bursting in air. Our neighborhood is about to erupt into a cacophony of puny pops to louder pops! πŸ’Έ πŸ’Έ πŸ’£ πŸŽ† πŸŽ‡

We all need safe ear plugs not in a tv advertised military veterans lawsuit.

Be safe on your return from the cove!🏊 πŸš—

Thank you Kbot, for posting The Declaration of Independence. In the reading of it , it is apparent, just how far off the Rails it has become.

We no longer fight the" King of Great Britain " for our Liberty, but a group of most evil proportions, that teach hate ,destruction, greed. They rule by segregation, by color of skin, gender, sexual preference. They are judgement bound, dictated, by speech and judgements only allowed by their rules. They are above all law, and preen over their power of life and death, and rule by fear. We have never faced any thing quite like this in our history. An endless battle. It all makes me weary. Change ,at its best can be trying, change by the insane, is a real challange!

Many thanks kbot for the whole nine yards on the parchment paper still so well preserved in the National Archives! I enjoyed reading it and I dare to say too few have done so to date. :oops: The author Thomas Jefferson's Virginia home town just changed his holiday to another name!

Our Founding Fathers are not turning over in their graves. I think their collective ghostly spirits have long left the country! :raspberry :messedup:
:mason:

Doka you are so right on about today compared to July 4, 1776! :o

San Fransicko is planning to spend 600K$ to cover up George Washington High School's 13 panel, 1,600 sq ft mural on the life and times of George way back when and way back East!

The reason for the huge estimated cost to paint over it is as weird as California is weird! :P It's noted in brief well down this page. :roll:

My wife and I and our son and his fiance went to the beach on the 4th and had a great time - perfect weather and we're had fireworks nightly since July 2nd somewhere. Nearby Bristol, RI has the country's oldest 4th of July parade. They also had nightly concerts at Independence Park located along Bristol Harbor for the weeks before the 4th as well as through the week of the 4th.

I think that people needed to be reminded (if our education system educates at all) on the Founding Fathers and our founding documents.

Hopefully you all had an enjoyable 4th and will also have a happy and safe summer as well.

For me, I just had a 1945 edition of the Catholic Missal delivered yesterday, and I've started reading it realizing just how far the Catholic Church has strayed off he rails post Vatican II - I didn't realize just how much things have changed. I had been using a 1962 version of the Daily Missal, which many traditional Catholics use, and only recently heard the 1945 version was available, and it was eye-opening just how many changes were made by Vatican II.

I know that this isn't related to the 4th of July celebrations, but, I think that with Doka's comments about going off the rails, I do think that there is come common ground.....
