Happy Birthday America. I write this on July 5th, because I was really busy being a proud American last night. I live in Las Vegas, so, it's all about finding a good vantage point where one can see the whole strip from a distance. Then, let the fireworks begin. The rocket's Red Glare....The Bombs Bursting in Air...
It is a bit concerning that a lot of people think of the 4th of July as a celebration of some kind of Fascist rule of America. I have seen a lot of reports about this. Yet others think of it as no more than an excuse to get ripped and blow shit up. It has gotten to the point where people are afraid to fly an American Flag in their yard. To many, showing patriotism seems to be un-American in some way. In short, there are a lot of backward thinkers in this world. People who jump at the chance to poop on our party. They don't like Christmas, or July 4th, or any holiday that celebrates greatness and goodness. They seem to come out every time there is a Holiday. Oh well, to them I say, have a nice day.
No one has the power to ruin my good time. I am a proud American. I practice a Live and let Live attitude, as long as these people don't try to ram their beliefs down my throat. I am all about listening to all points of view. But, if I happen to disagree with a point of view, don't get in my face over it and tell me I am wrong.
I was talking to someone the other day, and the topic came around to Johnny Cash. I told him that I do a Cash tribute show. We got to talking about John being a great american hero. A patriot. A man of the people. He said..."There aren't enough Johnny Cashs' in the world"..... Enough said.
Have a great day!
