So it's closing in on dark here and the illegal (?) fireworks and gunfire is increasing.
Now, I have no objection to firecrackers or dynamite as long as they're safely detonated by adults or sober adult supervision if you're under the age of ten. And not under my truck or porch.
But celebration of our Glorious Independence by gunfire? In the words of Miss Lisa - "Are you fucking kidding me?"
Gunfire is THE reason we're celebrating.
Gunfire is the life of our Nation. It was bought and paid for by blood shed by gunfire.
Gunfire is the sound of Liberty.
Gunfire is the sound of Resistance.
Gunfire is heard when we vote.
Gunfire is the Red, White and Blue cloth we all love.
Gunfire is the reason I can sit here and write this. Gunfire is the reason that you can read this.
Gunfire is the our voice.
Let's just hope the fuckers that are shooting tonight are shooting into the ground instead of the air.
