  • The debt per person in the USA is cheap compared to other countries. Let's celebrate with Chinese fireworks! I love the stench of burning sulfur from the fireworks, much better than the normal LA stench. Read More

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. :) The US is strong because of many things, not the least of which is our good relationship with friendly nations.
I am native to the US, and I have been to several other countries. There's no place like home!

>>There's no place like home!
I think that's true of most people around the globe.

As for the 4th, I'm working at Wal-Mart today, one of the busiest days of the year. Yesterday was non-stop shopping from the time I went to work at 9:00 a.m. until long after I left. Tons of hotdogs, hamburger and buns went out the door.

Chance of rain this evening which may put a damper on any fireworks tonight.

Quoted recently, but today I'll requote it.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain Inalienable 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 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.

Yea, it was amazing coming home from work at 10:00 pm.. We live right outside the city limits, and as I drove I saw people camped out all along the road shooting off fireworks! It was awesome! Very Fun :)

My family and I, along with some of our neighbors, had a pool party and ate hot dogs, hamburgers, and some side dishes. We also launched off quite a few fireworks last night. We had fountains, fireballs, spinners, ... the works.

I'd like to hear from those of you across "The Pond". How do you celebrate your respective national holidays?

Ancient Dragon,
I hope you weren't rained out, and that you had a great holiday. My wife and her sister find it physically impossible to not go to Wal-Mart. It is a running joke that neither of them can go on even a weekend trip without a visit to the local Wal-Mart.

:D :D We (my wife and I) are the same way. We did get rain but it didn't spoil the fireworks or BBQs.

America!
I am glad for all you folks out there! Your country is a beacon of light to a world desperately in need of it. I thank God for those early founding fathers. What would the world be like if they did not heed the call or faltered on their resolve to challenge tyranny and found a land where "Give me liberty or Give me death!" is more of a commitment than a shout.

God bless America!('cos through them He is blessing the World!)
peace:*

Oh, are you visiting the US? Hmm idk the best place to visit for the 4th.. We always have a huge parade in the morning, and then a large fireworks display at night.. In between, everyone in the world cooks out lol :)

Damn straight! Super Bowl Sunday is even better :)

cowboys won the supa bowl......cowboys win cowboys win!!!!!!!

Ah, my favorite sport! We've had some great teams recently. Do either of you think a team can run the gauntlet and have a perfect season like the 1972 Dolphins? My opinion is biased since I'm a Dolphins fan.

The sentiment is ok, Josh, but the scope is undeserved. We still have a lot of friends out there, even in nations that officially don't like us too well. :*

Doesn't look like it.. I thought the Broncos were going to go undefeated with Elway! But those damn Dolphins came outta nowhere (I believe they had one of the worst records that year) to beat the Broncos!! Hell..

so is it a big deal in the US? or just a minor holiday?

Well lets see:
It's the day people close up their shops so they can meet can up with their families. They put on flag apparel in cult like fashion, get drunk as ----, declare their love of their country and that they're American, then with the empty bottles they shove some illegal M80s in and blow off the closet child's hand.

Yessiree bob, it's great holiday while we celebrate independence through PTSD. Just like our soldiers did.

It's not actually the 4th July here yet and isn't a major thing here; however Happy 4th July / Independance Day to those that do celebrate it!
