Rode with a buddy from Manch, NH to Boston, MA to-day. We were taking a break at the side of the road near a creek when a li’l guy who looked a lot like this came scurrying across the (pretty busy) road & hid behind my bicycle.

We’re having burgers with mountains of bacon and cheese. Oh, and some Vodka. OK, some more Vodka. And then beer with the burgers. It’s a law here.
Happy Independence Day all!

Happy Independence Day from the cradle of liberty. Too bad the liberal fucktards that populate this area have squandered their legacy. But enough of that for today….the fireworks will start in about an hour and a half. Hubby and I will pull out the lawn chairs and walk across the street to the parking lot to watch the show. We’ll tune the radio to the live broadcast and open a bottle of bubbly. GOD bless America!

I’m watching ‘The Revolution’ on History Channel. It dawns on me. It was approximately 100 years from the Revolution to the Civil War. It’s near nuff to 150 years since the Civil War.

In the true sense of ‘Give me Liberty or Give me Death’, we’re overdue for a change.

Happy 4th.

Not to be a douche but you know that flag is backward right?

I schwetted my ‘mercan balls off all day getting ready to move, in 108 degree heat. I’m now drinking Mickey’s “Fine Malt Liquor”. Merica.

Is it, Surly? I had no idea. I just stumbled in from the garden, grabbed a flag, grabbed a weasel and then staggered off to bed.

Had an excellent 4th. On the night of the 3rd, went to see a 30 minute fireworks show…. temp was a cool, cool 78F – unheard of here in Texas. On the 4th, got together with some friends and had the prototypical American 4th of July feast…. everything from corn and garden tomatoes to watermelon, washed down with copious amounts of American Craft beer. For the burgers, we made an attempt to take it as far as we could. Some nice not-lean-dammit hamburger fresh ground by our butcher, mixed with ground pork for flavor, copious amounts of garlic too. Topped with smoked cheddar cheese, bacon, grilled poblano peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, and very thinly sliced Bermuda onion. Did we miss anything?

As holidays go, I like the 4th of July. If we could just find a way to add big bonfires of political figures to the mix it would be perfect~!

Spent the 4th in the mountain town of Westcliffe, Colorado. We have legal “open carry” here. Marched in their 4th of July parade, under arms, with 500 Patriots [in our parade entry alone] in support of the Second Amendment and our Sheriffs who are suing to overturn the recent legislative attempts to destroy the Second. Our entry was led by 3 of the 54 County Sheriffs filing the suit. The crowd loved us. The local Democrats, who had threatened violence didn’t, but they were smart enough not to try anything stupid.

Being a traditionalist, amongst all the modern weaponry, I carried an actual Revolutionary War period “Brown Bess” musket I own at sling arms position. And carried a Washington Cruisers flag on a staff.

One of the best 4th of July’s I’ve had.

What a wonderful sight that must have been Subotai Badahur—carrying the “Brown Bess.” I hope someone took your photograph.

After some deep research on how to hang things, I found the rules on how to hang the American flag:


So Surly was right.

The fireworks laws here in Oregon are pussified. Anything remotely entertaining is classed as an “explosive.” The nearest Res is hours away.

You can’t even get a proper sparkler.

Luckily I’m resourceful, and have access to powder, so we had fun.

Hope your day was lovely.
