July 4th fireworks already begun

Fox News reported, "Dems fume as Trump moves to amend DC's July 4 celebration, possibly address the nation."

Why should they care? They don't love the country much and believe patriotism is only the final refuge of the scoundrel.


The last guy they elected had to be taught to place his hand over his heart for the national anthem.

But there they are whining because President Donald John Trump loves the flag, the country, and the American people.

On Independence Day (I prefer the Fourth of July) President Trump plans to address the nation as part of the capital's celebration of this great nation's birth.

Democrat Congressman Betty McCollum told Fox News, "It’s not about any one president. It’s about how our nation came to be, because of a hardy band of brave men and women.

"It’s not about any one person, it’s about ‘We, the people.’ And if the president moves to make this about him, I think he will find the America public disappointed and angered by it."

No, actually Independence Day is about the nation. We celebrate its birth and our freedoms. The president represents all the people, even the ones who almost three years after his election are throwing tantrums.

The great thing about presidential speeches in America is that you don't have to listen to them. I sure as heck skipped as many Obama speeches as I pleased. I suggest President Trump's resistors do the same, and let me enjoy his Independence Day speech in peace.

  1. And to this day I thank Bill Clinton for weaning me from listening to All Things Considered on NPR. I found just the sound of his voice so irritating that the radio immediately went "click". Most days it was within the first two minutes of their broadcast to have the obligatory sound-bite from him.

  2. They must really miss Obama's 'I', 'Me', and 'my' speeches. I, however, don't miss them at all.

    1. And his extemporaneous "uh, uh, uh, uh, uh's"

  3. As far as I'm concerned, the President Trump should give a really patriotic, rip-snorting, take-no-prisoners speech on July 4th. - Elric

    1. I agree. And who can challenge PDJT's instincts as to why he is considering changing the location. And not by far either. I am sure the fireworks can be seen from the Great Mall with no problem if they are also more visible along the Potomac. Just another reason for liberals to bitch and moan.

  4. Does Ms McCollum remember how BHO used and abused the personal pronoun when ever he spoke on any subject about anything?

    1. That picture of Obama is from the 2008 Primaries, and it absolutely NOT faked. Good grief.

    2. Well, he really needed to scratch his balls.

      There really wasn't a better way to show his contempt for the Anthem, the Flag and the country they represent!

  6. I recently discovered that there are actually products (I.e. - graduates) of our public education system that actually couldn’t identify what was being celebrated on the 4th of July.
    That was the day I decided to never again call the celebration of our nation’s Independence by it’s calendar date.
    Now if we can get these know-nothings to learn who we gained independence from... :-/

  7. March 1, 1781 was the real birthdate of the nation when the Articles of Confederation were ratified. They were a covenant with God until 1789 when religious test oaths were outlawed by the outlaws in Philadelphia.

    The minutes of that Philadelphia Convention were kept secret until all of them died James Madison being the last one.

  8. Even before the 4th, the colonists and Founders are slow to anger and revolt. The colonists petitioned the King for 10 years to reduce taxes and levies to no avail. But the King, sensing the unrest in the colonies, ordered his forces to disarm the colonists in the resistance stronghold of Massachusetts. They raided Charlestown with success and then went to Lexington, where the first fighting began, and then Concord even prior to the Declaration of Independence. Based on that experience, the Founders gave us the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution.I know that even in my school years in the 1950s and 60s, the confiscation of arms was never taught as a fear of the Founders and why the 2nd Amendment was enacted, so I expect few citizens to understand why we must have the 2nd Amendment to protect government from abridging all of the rest of our freedoms and rights.The modern states' confiscation of firearms or severely limiting the private ownership allowing the resulting strong arm governments, as in Venezuela and South Africa , seemly doesn't register with many of our citizens. However with over 350 million firearms in private hands and, IMO, the vast majority owned by the 63 million Trump voters, politicians need to be cautious of what they propose and even more so if they enact such laws. The FBI upper management in 2016 seemed to know that since they illegally utilized the existing laws as cover to try a soft coup against President Trump. That failed, mainly because our military was not involved, but in the future we may not be as safe with the growth of progressive/Leftist control in America.

  9. Teddy Roosevelt called the presidency a "bully pulpit" meaning it commanded attention. It also allows a POTUS to grab the spotlight occasionally.

    It's a perk of being POTUS. I didn't whinge about it when Obama did it, so I'm not listening to any whinging now.

  10. does everyone in media forget that he pushed himself during the Superbowls?!?!? That was the beginning of the end for NFL, imo. After that.. they went full-bore SJW instead of just letting it stay on simmer.
