Happy Birthday to our Nation!
244 years old, and showing some wear and tear. But still the greatest nation ever conceived on this planet, even if founded by and comprised of imperfect persons.

I hope everyone has something precious to celebrate today.

RE: Happy Birthday to our Nation!
Because of our founding fathers (including Jefferson) and their belief that all men were created equal, this country was able to end hundreds (thousands, really) of years of slavery in 87 years.

Yes, Jefferson owned slaves, but it was something he also thought should be ended. Of King George, he wrote,

Quote: "He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where Men should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce

In the end, despite all the trials and tribulations of the present, I still think this country is a better place for me than any other. For all that we are, we are still here. We all lift together.

Hate to break it to you, but most Black people in this country don’t celebrate July 4th for a reason

Please go ask your Black friend (I assume you have at least one) why what you wrote is dumb. If, and only if, you don’t have a Black friend I will gladly explain it to you.

C’mon really? Who doesn’t take the opportunity to break out the grill and invite family/friends over? I have an open mind. Please educate me.
