Happy 4th of July to all other Americans ( or hell, anyone else on this board). I don't mean that in a flag waving, BBQ, NASCAR and booze way....let's think about how SOME of the founders of this country--not necessarily all of them--were in favor of individualism and freedom of expression, and anti-tyranny, be it from George III of England, or our current George II in the States.
My heroes are people like Ann Winthrop, the men of Shay's Rebellion, Eugene Debs, The Bonus Army marchers, Woody Guthrie, August Spies and all the countless working folks who have fought to make this country actually live up to some of it's ideals.
Fuck the John Wayne worshipping drunks and the suburban fools cowering in their SUV's as they blindly wave their made in China USA flags. Let's reclaim this place starting today!
