What Does the 4th of July Mean to You?

I always love that Independence Day is really all about freedom.  And I truly believe that freedom is fabulous.  A lot of things have been happening in our country lately to make me question just how free we are…

NYC proposing to limit soft drinks to 16 oz?

States requiring all voters to have tons of identification just to register to vote?  (Disproportionately impacts the lower classes)

The State of Georgia requiring folks to take drug tests to get food stamps?

I’m just starting to wonder how long the alleged freedom we have will actually last?  I guess the good thing is that today is all about a lot of fun things too:

Fireworks

Barbeque

Red, white and blue wardrobing

I’ve started the day with a workout, watermelon and Bud Light.  And I’m looking forward to a burger, italian sausage, more watermelon and more cocktails.  🙂

I hope that you all have a fantastic day planned.  And I can’t sign off without thanking ever single American that has served in the military to make it so that I can sit here and contemplate freedom in the safety of this wonderful land.  I am truly grateful.  YOU make me proud to be American.
