Happy Birthday, Nation

Independence from England was declared on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution stating as such. In the spirit of the Enlightenment, it was decided further clarification on this decision was needed, and that a formal declaration of the reasons for independence should be drafted. Both Adams and Franklin turned down the job, which fell to Jefferson. The Congress voted approval of the declaration on July 4. Hancock signed it and sent it off to the printer so that couriers could disseminate it throughout the colonies. Everyone then went home and grilled some hot dogs.

You have several options for celebrating the birth of our country tomorrow. You can write or sign a radical document, or you can stay home and grill some hot dogs. Either way, don't hold the sparkler too close to your eyes.

Hey anon (or too much of a pussy to use a name)

Gee I must hate America because I pointed out the mindless Libertarian Media plays a anti war song to drum up support for the disgracefull occupation of Iraq.

Hey Anon pussy in the words of the late and great George Carlin "Go fuck yourself!"

Can't we all just get along? Here I planned this nice birthday party for our little Nation, bought the hot dogs, hid the sparklers from the cat (he'd eat them), and you kids just have to go and argue. No vodka-filled watermelon for you...
