Happy Fourth Of July To My American Brothers And Sisters

My unlimited love to my American brothers and sisters out there, especially the great fellow bloggers that I have met since starting posting. As a Canadian I have the luxury of being able to watch your nation struggle with its noble ideals against the worst of its excesses from across our shared border. Sometimes it seems that your nation is on the edge of the cliff waiting to jump or be pushed into the abyss. However, each day, you find a way to keep the hope alive while remaining true to your Constitution (THE greatest document on governance ever created by man), your Bill of Rights and the aspirations of your people. I don't think any other population in the world could do the job that your nation has taken upon itself to do. Its a no-win scenario but I wouldn't want it in any other hands. Since it took the genius of a Canadian and an American to create the greatest of the superheroes, Superman, I post this trailer from 'Superman Returns'. Marlon Brando's speech from the first Superman movie is among the most iconic and moving in movie history and I think it perfectly captures the spirit of your nation, its potential and its future. You might just save us all. Happy Fourth of July my friends.

 
"They can be a great people, Kal-El. They wish to be.
They only lack the light to show the way."
 


 
Happy Independence Day to all my American brothers and sisters. I will be eating hot dogs and dropping firecrackers down my pants just to honor you and for my own amusement. I choose this picture because it kinda sums up what my feelings for Miss Britney and America - beautiful, talented but a little messed up at times.
 






All these images make me proud to be an American - even though I am not one. Happy Birthday America. You are the idiot cousin who I can love and hate all at the same time. You make me laugh and you bring me to tears. Your myopic vision of the world makes me sad and I wish you celebrated more of your REAL successes instead of the ones you are spoon fed by your media. You are at all times a contradiction. I hope you find a way to give the least of those among you their shot at the American Dream. Those words used to be a philosophy that guided your decision makers. Now it's a joke for your late night comedians. I tell you all this because I love you. Now get your shit together and stop your Idiot President from destroying the world. All I am saying in that in a nation awash in guns why can't SOMEONE do us all a solid. Trust me, get rid of that Numnut in Chief and you just might to see things a little clearer. I suspect, however that you will continue being your own worst enemy.
 




 
 
 

This masked Statue of Liberty is a perfect symbol for our friends to the South. Magnificent, majestic, magical and just a little bit shady. But being shady is how you get things done in this world and there is no other country in the world that I admire (and hope for) that the good old USA. But really, get your shit together and realize that the only FAKE MEDIA is on FOX NEWS and comes from the White House.

"Happy Treason Day, Ungrateful Colonials" -- Hahahahahaha! I enjoyed all the Captain America imagery of course. I used an image of Captain America and an eagle on my post today and OF COURSE someone had to raise HYDRA CAP right away. Marvel has done more damage than it knows, the bastards.

That's very generous, brother. Thank you. Happy belated Canada Day to you as well. As a long time Canada admirer I will be darkening your doorway soon if we can't get our shit together down here.

Thanks everyone. You are right Debra. Hydra Cap just seems to be the perfect symbol of everything that is wrong with America right now. I wait for that panel where he shakes hands with Trump.

Here's hoping sanity returns to our country but I don't think so. I'll be right behind j-swim. Don't worry, I can take care of myself...make my bed, feed myself, pet the kitty, etc.
