The LuLac Edition #2689, July 4th, 2014

FOURTH OF JULY 2014
AMERICA @ 238
The big three of the Founding Fathers, Franklin, Adams and Jefferson. (Photo: Spot On History).
Have a safe and happy fourth of July. If anyone tells you we need to take this country back, please ask them, "Where did it go?" 
If they tell you "They are taking our country away!" ask them where they are taking it? And if they take it, where are they going to hide it? 
If anyone tells you were are losing our freedoms, asked them if they were stopped at a town border. 
If they tell you our country wasn't what it used to be, ask them why. 
On this Fourth of July when someone makes an incredibly stupid statement using the buzz words they heard on Limbaugh and from the Tea Party, ask them for specifics. 
If someone brings up their guns, ask them how many Obama took from them. 
Stay safe, we'll be back next week. I'm taking a few days off and have been told to just "chill". But there are other projects I'm going to get to in the down time. Stay safe-Happy Fourth.

"Where did it go?"

Sucked into rules, regulations, and requirements that strip us of our ability to live independently and our freedom of choice - which includes the right NOT to choose, our right to be left alone, our right to choose when, who, and how to help.

"how many Obama took from them."

None, yet. Thanks to all those who stand up for our rights and refuse to bend what our fore-fathers forged for us.

Happy INDEPENDENCE Day.

Consider your rights when you get stopped at a DUI check-point and are required to prove your innocence under the guise of safer highways.

Afraid of accepting responsibility, expanded freedoms and relief from regulations? Sad.

No wonder we can't get this country, state or valley back on it's feet. Growing up is hard for some of us.

Ya know 8:48 I agree.

It's also apparent that some people will do what they want to do no matter how much money we spend on trying to convince them not to.

Let's save our time, energy and money trying.

Make the effort passive using all facts and all sides presented honestly and unemotionally.

Then accept the person's decision and let them accept yours.

I'm beginning to understand why some folks long to live in isolation or seek "compounds" and "communes".

Americans need to get off their couches, turn off the TVs, stop pecking away at their cell phones and wake up. Take a trip to Murrieta, CA, and meet the pro-amnesty crowd that is waving the Mexican flag, burning the American flag, dragging the American flag on the ground, shredding the American flag and hanging it on fences, calling Americans "wh****" in Spanish and screaming, "F*** America!" (Source: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-California/2014/07/04/American-Flag-Burned-at-Murrieta-Protests-on-4th-of-July ) Then you'll get your answer as to where America is going. Until then, enjoy your slumber.

Taken from a movie but is so true.. you might want to read this slowly.....

"You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country can't just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the "land of the free".

I can only speak for myself.

You speak about listening and by extension tolerance but neglect something called respect. Yes, it is a two way street but to suggest one must accept uncivil, disrespectful discourse as a necessary component of "land of the free" is laughable.

To burn the symbol of a country that millions have died for does nothing to advance the arsonists purpose beyond "tantrum" no matter how you dress it up.

Me burning down YOUR house in an effort to make a point about economic injustice is giving credence to the insane.

Putting a crucifix in urine and calling it "art" is juvenile and sophomoric. Saying it "speaks" to you revels a perverse nature unworthy of consideration.

There must be a line we agree on. For without one the behavior/language gets so course that we focus on the coarseness to the exclusion of thoughtful consideration or purpose.

This country was neither designed nor created for a lowest common denominator.

As I hope you can tell, I have patiently listened to and witnessed a lot of crap. Sometimes not realizing it was crap until later - sometimes much later. I'm getting better at sniffing it out as I get older.
