Yay for Independence day!!

I hope everyone has a great time today! I know I will, even though my plans don't involve actually going anywhere special. I think I'll just kick back, and think about and hopefully appreciate even more what the founders of our great country have done for us.

When you think about it, those guys were quite some badass mofo's to have stood up to the most powerful nation on earth at the time, Great Britain, and come out on top. And they were wearing sissy looking powdered wigs when they did it! They had the balls and the courage and the brains to pull it off, knowing full well what could happen to them and their families if things had gone down differently. And then to top it off, came together and signed our Declaration of Independence to thumb their collective noses at the very people that had been pushing them around for so long. Real heroes!! Don't forget to raise a toast to them when you have that glass of alcohol you will likely drink today! Hell yeah!

With that being said, there are still many people that do not enjoy the same freedoms that we enjoy and there were many struggles throughout the years since the Declaration that have improved on what they had done. My friend Inanna over at Anything Goes had plenty to say on the subject and says it very well!

Have a safe and happy holiday!!
