Well ladies and gentlemen boys and girls of all ages, it's that time of year and by now you're probably tired of our 4th of July themed pieces, but if you humor us, we have one more we'd like to share with you all. The Spirit of the 4th.See the spirit of the 4th of July isn't some high and holy ideal. No, it's an idea that a bunch of pissed off folks who got really tired some asshole king telling them how to live their lives and a parliament that didn't do crap all representing them, got fed up and did something about it. It's really that simple.So this Fourth of July, go friggin nuts. Try to impress the veteran who was an artilleryman with your display of fireworks (you won't succeed, but he and most other veterans will definitely appreciate the effort). Seriously go crazy celebrating because if there is any holiday that says "F*** off, we do what we want," which is the American way, it's the 4th of July.And we're not afraid to be honest with ourselves here, we know we haven't always gotten it right, we've done some dumb shit. We're a relatively young country and we've had some growing pains. But we've also managed to put the world on notice, not once, but twice when it comes to World Wars, not to mess with the United States of America. Furthermore, when the order to invade Iraq came down the pipe, we crippled their country in what would roughly be considered an extended vacation.We're the home of powered flight, the home of men that bravely fought off attacks at Pearl Harbor, stormed the beaches of Normandy and put men on the moon, not once, not twice, but six times! SIX TIMES!!!!Happy 4th of July to all of you. May you truly enjoy the idea that is the United States of America, land of the free and home of the brave, on this fourth of July!
