It is a time to celebrate our freedom from oppression and tyranny! except in Lawrence where the thought police lurk on every street corner making sure we all are thinking the way the want us to.

The celebration of the birth of the greatest nation this earth has ever seen. Although it was not without dire consiquences; mainly the appalling treatment of Native Americans. (We've got slavery in there too.)

Celebrate with pride, but don't ignore the shame.

The 4th of July to me, is the beginning of a wonderful experiment in the equality of all man and woman kind. We still haven't extended rights to everyone, but we will despite those who hate groups of people and want to keep them down. It represents the attitude "Question Authority". Don't bow down to heirs of money empires. Don't bow down to stupid politicians or anyone who claims to have all the answers.

Alex Trebek should go back to Canada and celebrate on July 14th with all the other green and white flag waving really thin little pancake eaters.

This year it means having a "Plan B", according to Joe Lauria.

For me, it's about being pissed off because I missed the Rush concert a couple of days ago. Did anybody go? How was it?

It's all about wearing Elvis sunglasses, right #3? And #1, Leon Russell, must be lost again. He went insane many years ago.
