I’ll be honest. I’m having a difficult time celebrating Independence Day.
In a nation with a Supreme Court Justice targeting gay marriage, while his spouse is implicated in the Big Lie.
Where a single man could manipulate Supreme Court nominations to deny one President a single appointment and give the next President three.
Where a cult of personality still holds one political party hostage.
Where people spend the holiday on the roads in record numbers, while bitching about gas prices caused by a dying tyrant’s murderous land grab.
Where half the country is scorched with heat and still denying climate science.
Where regulation of weapon magazine sizes is out of the question while students are murdered en masse.
Where people still whine about masks, let alone vaccinations, while COVID breakouts still reoccur.
Where Black men are still targeted and murdered by police.
What a bleak time to be a true American, from a family who have served to protect this nation since WWII. I’m heartsick. Take your fireworks somewhere else.
