Has anyone watched “Newsroom” yet on HBO? If not, and you can, do. It is one of the most intelligent shows I have seen in quite some time. And they said it perfectly. When the main character was asked why America was the greatest country in the world he said: “it’s not, but it could be.” Truer words were never spoken.
It’s not about fireworks. And even though fireworks were banned in my town this year because of the extreme heat/dryness that could lead to potential disaster (and home did catch on fire because people refused to listen), drunken neighbors thought that the day would be incomplete if they didn’t shoot them off until midnight. Those that had to work today (like myself) and parents of little ones, I am sure, didn’t appreciate that. And people, don’t complain because it falls on a Wednesday and you’re not going to get a long weekend. That’s not the point. And don’t settle for complacency in your everyday life. Strive to make America great again, and if you do, God Bless you and your families. We are America, and honestly, I believe our forefathers would be disappointed in the state we allowed our country to be in. But, I believe in the concept, and still have hope that we will one day become the greatest nation on earth.
End rant and rambling.
