Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July all. Happy Independance day. My cousin is being shipped off to Iraq and my brother is in training so he can go. They are fighting for our freedom. But who is our? They are not fighting for my freedom. They are not fighting for your freedom. They are not keeping terrorists away. Terrorists jobs are to terrorize. They are doing that. Does us threatening to destroy them keep them from doing their job? No. We are the scared ones. They have done their job. We are bullies. If we as a country piss people off, then why is it wrong for them to retaliate? We are weak. Sure we have guns and technology, but Custer had guns and technology also. Bullies always grow up to lose their power. We have been raping 3rd world countries for years. Now they get mad, and we think that they are wrong? Who in the hell do we think we are? Independance day will be when we have leaders who can instill a government that does not allow leaders to take advantage of the goverment to pursue their own agendas. (Does anyone really think that this war is over anything other than a several million dollar check not being slid under the table between the oil powers, and our elected officials, and a few businessmen?) I want to make this rant go on and on...but I am going to cut it off here to so I don't drown out what I'm trying to say:

The U.S. is a weak, self-conscious country in its teenage years. If we do not change the way we treat others, then we will suffer the consequences of being a lonely old country that deteriorates away, but still hangs onto the stories of what we used to be.

Happy Independance Day.
