    Default Tanks? Now we got tanks?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Fourth of July was always a cookout or picnic, hamburgers, hotdogs and potato salad, maybe a local parade, and perhaps a bonfire or fireworks at dusk. Low key, defiantly no politics, day of celebration and reflection

    But now we got a President who wants to pimp the day to promote himself, all on taxpayers' dime. A military parade, autocratic style, a televised Presidential address, all an effort to make it all about Trump. Certainly the family will be featured and all then Trump lackeys front and center, Fox beginning to end coverage, and the Trumpkins sitting at home watching on TV

    And tanks

    Welcome to a "greater America," hope he doesn't hump a flag again

    What the fuck do you think fireworks represent, dumbass. Your stupidity never ceases to amaze me. How do you even remember to breathe, or blink your eyes? It's a miracle.

    Fireworks are part of the celebration, has been, traditional, focusing the day on Trump is not celebrating nor traditional, as I said, it is Trump primping the holiday to make it all about him

    Another clueless leftist loon. Cry harder sissy.

    https://time.com/4828701/first-firew...tory-july-4th/

    After all, John Adams did say he hoped the anniversary of independence would be marked for years to come by “guns” and “bonfires” and “illuminations.” Because the first July 4 fireworks display happened in the middle of the Revolutionary War, some historians believe they were supposed to be a “morale booster.” The celebrations at the time would have also included the firing of cannons and guns, adding to the explosive nature of the festivities. With the war’s end and increasing concern for public safety, those firearms were eventually phased out of the celebrations and replaced almost entirely by the fireworks, which were often given the official stamp of approval in the hope of drawing citizens to public celebrations instead of more dangerous private firework shows.

    Pretty funny, you had to go back two hundred plus years attempting to find justification for Trump pimping the Fourth

    Well, if that is the case why is Trump getting involved, DC has had major fireworks shows on the Fourth, as well as big and small regions have for years. Why do we now need a keynote Presidential address, a military parade reviewed by the President along withhis family/friends? Why do we have to make the day suddenly about the President?

    Ummmm, yeah, it's called tradition. Of course libs hate the founding fathers, and everything America stands for. Take your anti Americanism and shove it up your ass.

    Are you retarded? Parades occur during the day, fireworks occur after dark
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Why? Did you know it's legal to campaign in the United States?

    Hopefully the Trumpanzees are all out enjoying the day with family and friends, rather than watching the LoveMeLongTimeLookAtMEEEE nonsense.

    I made Mr. Owl spit his Coke out the other day when they showed the Toadstool on the news yammering about the festivities. "There's going to be our best planes flying over, and tanks on the side, and..." (paraphrased but very close to what he said). I piped up in a kid's voice: "And clowns and elephants and the bearded lady and the strong man too! Can we go, Daddy, can we?"

    So Mr. Owl enjoys some Bolivian Marching Powder, I guess you'd need some strong pharmaceuticals to live with a nightmare like you.
    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!
