Sadly the "of the people, by the people" thing kinda slipped away a long time ago. And the rest is now just words to remind us of what we are not.

 

For those who still look though red, white and blue glasses, perhaps it's time to take them off and see that we are the biggest problem in the world today!

 

"They" never hated us for our freedoms, they hate us for the pure body count and missery we have racked up and continue to every day since the very beginning of America's take over from the natives here.

 

Celebrate that

"U.S. Blues"
 

 

Red and white/blue suede shoes
I'm Uncle Sam /how do you do?
Gimme five/I'm still alive
Ain't no luck/I learned to duck

Check my pulse/it don't change
Stay seventy two/come shine or rain
Wave the flag/pop the bag
Rock the boat/skin the goat

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime
Done come and gone
My oh my

I'm Uncle Sam /that's who I am
Been hidin' out/in a rock and roll band
Shake the hand that shook the hand
Of P.T. Barnum/and Charlie Chan

Shine your shoes/light your fuse
Can you use/them ol' U.S. Blues?
I'll drink your health/share your wealth
Run your life/steal your wife

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done
Come and gone
My oh my

Back to back/chicken shack
Son of a gun/better change your act
We're all confused/what's to lose?
You can call this song/the United States Blues

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done come and gone
My oh My
Summertime done come and gone
My oh My

You're kidding right? They definitely use real fireworks. Both shows were a combination of projected lights and fireworks.

How many times has this happened:

 

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

 

I can think of only two times, with war being the necessary cost to being free. Since war is fought by soldiers, and because this is a ski forum, below is an old WWII training film for the ski troopers. Note: There are quite a few of these films accessed through YouTube.
