On July 5, 1852, Frederick Douglass gave a withering speech commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Douglas had this right. The Fourth of July celebrates the "signing" of the Declaration of Independence. Not our independence itself.

A fine distinction.

In a couple of generations, maybe sooner, July the 4th will be replaced by May the 5th as the national holiday of independence.

Obama will eventually outlaw fourth of July celebrations and replace it with the day he shredds the Constitution.

The job numbers will come out tomorrow, happy 4th of July.
The correction numbers will be out Friday, or Monday after the WH vacation.

America is meant to be for all people for all time. However like receiving anything that is good, there is a qualifier, it requires respect, dignity, responsibility and personal restraint. If not we can all lose what God has given us.

America was founded on Christian principles as proclaimed in the Holy Bible.

The highest, the transcendent glory of the American Revolution was this — it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the precepts of Christianity.

John Quincy Adams- sixth President of the United States
It was not intended as an anything goes society as we see increasingly today.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

John Adams- second President of the United States

People feel they have less and less in common with their neighbors and as an unfortunate result feel that they can take advantage of them without any remorse. It is what we have or had in common that made America great. Not some obscure, indefinable sense of diversity or multi-culturalism, though we are to respect our neighbors and wherever they are from.

Selfish people like homosexual activists, those who advocate black liberation theology, La Raza, communists, socialists, liberals or just any plain old American haters need to shape up and appreciate America or get out. They take advantage of what God has given them by Him bringing them here. Not to abuse America but to appreciate it. And they should thank Him in humble prayer for it as should the rest of us.

No, not just by being an American or living here makes you an American Patriot. Itīs respecting America, what it was founded on and for and everyone else that is here.

God bless America.

Interesting how obama is too busy in france on a campaign fund raising trip to honor Independance Day. I see no reason why the french shouldn't be able to vote in the US.

Give the guy a break he needs one last vaca before he gets voted out of office, he might as well milk us taxpayers for all it is worth, and yes I see no reason why he could not write a executive order for the french to vote here...:-)

Me! Me! Cinco De Mayo celebrates the Mexican victory over France in 1862.
It also celebrates that gunk WASPS slather over everything.

We need a change anyway. That will be exciting. Besides the 4th of July is getting old and boring anyway.

After you invaded Mexico, stole half of Mexico, and left Mexico destroyed to the point that facilitated France to invade Mexico and tried to annex it! And it took a great effort from the Mexican and help from the North (Republican North) to fend off the french (Bonaparte next generation). Otherwise, the France was planning to supply the confederates to split off from you!

You better celebrate September 3 since that was the day England gave up in keeping you as a colony! But the people of the US always do everything opposite, they celebrate the day they unilaterally declared freedom instead of the day they forced their master to give up its imperial dreams of enslaving you!
