A Great 4th of July to all !
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." Ronald Reagan

Nothing better than this Country !

To bad some think there is a NEED to destroy it from within.

Those types will be "Defeated !

"The people made worse off by slavery were those who were enslaved. Their descendants would have been worse off today if born in Africa instead of America. Put differently, the terrible fate of their ancestors benefitted them."

"People who have time on their hands will inevitably waste the time of people who have work to do. "

"It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it."

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.

Thomas Sowell

Those types will be "Defeated" !

When you talk about dissenting voices being 'defeated', you are dismissing everything that the country we all love represents.

When dissent is muted, there is no discussion. When there is no discussion there is no debate. When there is no debate, there is no change. When there is no change, there is stagnation. Where there is stagnation, there is no growth. When there is no growth, there is inevitable death.

Celebrate this Independence Day in being willing to hear those voices clamoring for the promise of true Independence that only some truly enjoy. This holiday, above all others, should not be exclusionary.

Voices are one thing, Physical destruction is another.

Taking away objects....changes History NOT !

Physical destruction is another.

And murders committed at the hands of those charged with our protection is yet another.

Time to get past the symbolism of statuary and enter into the reasonable debate that these times demand. That is the most patriotic thing I can imagine.

You know that's the whole point of universities today, right? Stifling all dissent.

We are at the point where simply saying "all lives matter" on campus gets people fired.  There's less dissent within most faculties than in a Chinese reeducation camp these days.

And yet you lump in all protesters with the few who are destructing property...forgetting the entire reason for those protestations in the myopic focus on the regrettable, but yet self-serving outcome. Funny what some folks are actually rooting for.

And yet, the Media Pics and vids show no more than those doing the destruction.

i guess there is no Protestors that are Truly "Peaceful" ?

Talk to the "Media" if "Dirty" is all they want to show !

Aparantly .... Black people that have been killed during the "Protest", by "NOT THE POLICE", aren't "Worthy" of recognition, nor a Televised Funeral either. Doesn't fit the "Agenda" the "Left" is looking for !

riots have been with us for quite some time.

It seems they are neither un-American or unknown to other countries through the dawn of time.

Well, one positive thing anyway...at least some like You , It is Me, would never do anything like that.

(Especially regarding the activities of the protestors).

Good on you, It is me!

For that, I 'm actually thinking of nominating you, It Is Me,  for an RAV award!!! jrSmiley_15_smiley_image.gif

(For those not familiar with the prestigious and highly veneered RAV award-- RAV stands for "Random Act of Vineness"!!!)

Destruction is not legitimate dissent. So yes those who would destroy our history and culture need to not only be defeated but locked up.

As late long as there is an attempt to destroy our history, our traditions, and our memorials there will be no discussion.  Those who would resort to violence and destruction need to be put down by whatever means need be to restore law and order first and then we will talk. The 1st amendment to the constitution demands peaceable assembly to petition government for redress of grievances.  If people chose to resort to violence instead they need to be met with greater violence until they stop.  We have a constitution and a republic and means to get needs and goals met within the rule of law.

Trump Announces National Garden of American Heroes

GetFile.aspx?guid=2c176d34-d93a-409c-9b44-864b86932a6e&SiteName=Newsmax&maxsidesize=600

Rejecting the "merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children" in his July 3 Mount Rushmore speech , President Donald Trump announced an executive order to celebrate American heroes.

"Under the authority vested in me as president of the United States, I am announcing the creation of a new monument to the giants of our past,"  Trump said in his Friday night  speech in South Dakota.  "I am signing an executive order to establish the National Garden of American Heroes, a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live.

"From this night and from this magnificent place, let us go forward united in our purpose and re-dedicated in our resolve. We will raise the next generation of American patriots. We will write the next thrilling chapter of the American adventure.

"And we will teach our children to know that they live in a land of legends, that nothing can stop them, and that no one can hold them down. They will know that in America, you can do anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything."

Trump's executive order is an effort to strike back at the destruction of American momuments in an election year. Its location and makeup will be flushed out by the Task Force for Building and Rebuilding Monuments to American Heroes, and it will be finished by July 4, 2026.

A portion of order reads:

"The National Garden should be composed of statues, including statues of John Adams, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Daniel Boone, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Henry Clay, Davy Crockett, Frederick Douglass, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin Franklin, Billy Graham, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Douglas MacArthur, Dolley Madison, James Madison, Christa McAuliffe, Audie Murphy, George S. Patton, Jr., Ronald Reagan, Jackie Robinson, Betsy Ross, Antonin Scalia, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, George Washington, and Orville and Wilbur Wright." https://www.newsmax.com/politics/monuments-national-park-executive/2020/07/04/id/975686/

Harriet Tubman

Really - she gets a statue instead of being on the $20? Bet he's planning a really small statue.

What would you consider a small statue? How big does it need to be to lose that designation in your opinion?

Need to know if we are going to bet!

Funny thing about Harriet T, she is only supposed to appear on one side of the $20 with Andrew J

still occupying the other side, a supposed Obama compromise.

Started in 2016 by Jack Lew, a final design was promised by 2020, now that that is done,

Steve Mnuchin says it may take 4 more years to over come security issues...

Perhaps they should contract the process out to Elon Musk and Spacex. 

They seem to accomplish more with less $$ in a shorter amount of time.

I have no problem with that compromise with one face on each side of the $20 bill.

this year the city fireworks display was the biggest ever....   yet the official city display was canceled.

so we took matters into our own hands.... LOL

the people lite this city up from end to end on their own for hours on end.

all one had to do was go outside and look up.     fireworks everywhere all at once.

the best 4th this city has seen in decades....  it was awesome :)

It was like that all over California in cities and counties the mayor or governor outlawed fireworks displays and gatherings.  In most cases there were more fireworks than ever before.  Instead of city events there were multiple dozens of smaller neighborhood block parties where privately purchased ones were used.  I live in a county not hard hit by the Newscum so we had our fireworks where over half the city could see them from home or their business.  The rest simply assembled in areas around town with a view in our cars or sidewalks as the civic center and rodeo grounds where they are launched from was closed to the public.  Many I’m the state made a point of celebrating independence because our governor/mayor told us not to!
