I’m in Louisville, Kentucky this week visiting relatives and
have just returned from a weekend in southern Kentucky and northern Tennessee
after a family reunion and extended road trip to visit my many relatives (on my
mother’s side of the family) in the area.
It is H-O-T here, the kind of southern and eastern “hot” that is
miserable because of the high humidity that comes with it. While I lived with that for many years on the
east coast, a half decade in Arizona has “deconditioned” me to that kind of
weather, so it’s been pretty miserable.
Speaking of miserable, what is this about people actually wanting to
celebrate Fourth of July today? Am I
Looking at the events that have transpired over the last
year in Amerika’s descent into complete tyranny, I really wonder just how far
up their asses the sheeple majority’s heads are.
Highlighted by the National Defense
Authorization Act (NDAA) and last week’s SCOTUS rubberstamping of Obamacare,
2012 has been a horrendous year for liberty.

But, since the sheeple
majority wouldn’t recognize freedom if it bit them squarely in their collective
asses, that’s not likely to happen.
brainless droids conditioned by twelve years of government indoctrination, food,
firewater, and fireworks trump freedom.
Kentucky and Tennessee have banned private fireworks
displays due to the dry weather conditions affecting the entire middle and
southern parts of the country (and yet fireworks are still on sale in
Tennessee: how’s that for bureaucratic stupidity in
action?), so there probably won’t be many pyrotechnics displays here
today. It’s just as well, because unless
the goal is to celebrate the slow death of the liberty upon which this nation
was founded, fireworks serve no legitimate purpose.
I think I’ll take an extended nap this afternoon, one
that lasts till tomorrow morning when the day becomes just another day.
