Oh yeah, it's the fourth.

I can hear some of the festivities starting up already.

Let's celebrate the date that our country managed to work its way out being subservient to another country, while still having people from yet other countries picking our cotton, who still haven't worked they way up the totem pole(oh, and then there's the natives...) much, 200+ years later. And do it by blowing shit up, but in a pretty way.

Kinda like how I'm still required to tell someone to "have a pleasant(good/nice) day" when I've just given them a listing for their local funeral home.

Go back to sleep, America.
