Well I have the day off to revel in the festivities for the 4th of July. I'll be watching the fireworks from the balcony of the Pretty Girl's apartment which is located right on Eastlake. Fun should be had by all.
It's a dark time for our country. Even though America has seen worse times you wouldn't know it by studying the body politic. Still on this day I'd like to forget the issues plaguing our White House and remember the sacrifices made on this day when our forefathers created a government that ideally is by and for the people. Whether you like our current state of affairs or not you can enjoy the freedom to actively participate in the process without fear of death.
For all our ills this country is a great one to reside in and for one day lets give thanks to those who created a system that allows us the comfortable lives we live. By giving thanks I mean buying foreign fireworks, blowing shit up, and consuming way too much alcohol and food.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July from the folks...err folk...at Erik's Ramblings.
