The birthday of our country. A day to watch baseball and hot dog eating and Wimbledon (if you are up that fucking early). A day to enjoy not working. A day to have a barbque. A day to light of fireworks.
I love national holidays. We don't care anymore as a society what they actually stand for. It just means lets party, get drunk, and eat.
Who cares that we got our freedom? What is freedom anymore? We are in a country ran by men (and a few women) that care more about what their closest friends want and need as opposed to what the whole country needs. How is that freedom?
