“My dear friend, do not imagine that I am vain enough to ascribe our success [Revolution] to any superiority…If it had not been for the justice of our cause, and the consequent interposition of Providence, in which we had faith, we must have been ruined. If I had ever before been an atheist, I should now have been convinced of the being and government of a Deity!”
— Benjamin Franklin, in a letter to William Strahan, August 19, 1784

Happy birthday indeed. Just got back from the reenactment of the skirmish of Hanover. I think the horse artillery was a bit much for my 4 year old – he was quite scared when the cannons started booming. http://www.theaspiringhorseplayer.wordpress.com/

Despite your awful crime of wasting a heck of a lot of tea, I wish you a very Happy Birthday, America!
Where may one purchase a cake big enough for the celebrations?

The Birthday of freedom & democracy is a gift to all our citizens, but it’s a gift that carries a responsibility: be a citizen, not a passive consumer. Democracy is something you have to use, or you’ll lose it.Here’s my post on the subject:www.jan4geo-glow.blogspot.com/2008/07/democracy-use-it-or-lose-it.html

 

Happy Birthday America! I’m so thankful for the freedoms I have.

Happy Birthday USA and MANY more! Catch a crook with crimeandcrooks.com .

Crooks don’t deserve happy birthdays.

I say…thought i’d pop in to say “No hard feelings I hope” you little rebels enjoy the day…you earned it I guess.

Happy Birthday!

After you celebrate, maybe you have time to think about constitutional traditions we share with our European cousins. If so, check out “Why I like the Declaration of Independence”, clioandme.wordpress.com/2008/07/04/why-i-like-the-declaration-of-independen…

Happy Birthday America!!! & Happy Birthday to me…

Here is offended blogger’s dedicated to all those America haters out there.www.offendedblogger.com/2008/07/happy-birthday-america-offensive.html

I usually post the same song every year and this year I changed it up a bit.
Happy 4th 🙂 

Oh, victorious fireworks,
cast from our Fathers pipes,
the Fourth night you are the Stars,
and the rest you paint in Stripes.

Your explosive lights and sonic booms
echo our Independence debut,
the commencement of Freedom and Justice,
and the meaning of Red, White, and Blue.

Every home in the nation
breathes the smoke of your glory,
hotdogs, parades, and barbecues
around bonfires and a story.

Oh, victorious fireworks,
Illuminated explosions in sky,
our heart beats with you,
on this day, The Fourth of July.

Great post and I love your use of the America flags flying by each comment. I submitted and reviewed the post at SU.

And I’m proud to be an American! That song gets me all pumped up and ready to eat some BBQ!

I’ve got two Independence Day posts:

One is about the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC: “Now, That’s American!” ( apatheticlemming.blogspot.com/2008/07/now-thats-american.html ).

The other is a bit controversial: “United States of America: 232 Years in the Freedom Business” ( anotherwaronterrorblog.blogspot.com/2008/07/united-states-of-america-232-ye… ).

Each celebrates an aspect or two of America that I think is distinctly non-substandard. 

A Happy Birthday America wish for one of you Northern neighbors! Enjoy your 4th of July long weekend!

I’m definitely proud and thankful to live in the USA. Thanks for putting this post together Rob…it’s a good one! Hope you enjoyed your day with your family.http://www.mcwriters.com

Yes it’s a great day, folks, but to truly show your patriotism you’ll have to take action this November by getting out to VOTE.

    This is pretty wild, especially after sitting around drinking sangria in the rain on the fourth of July. Those flags are impressive.

    Well done.

    Or as my guy friends always say – *slap hard on ass with towel* “good game”.

  11. Lenka Bliss says:

    Happy Birthday! I guess I was the only one who celebrated 4th July in Britain but nevermind : ))

  12. Theresa111 says:

    Would it be cheeky of me to say this? “Happy Belated Birthday America!” Just stopping by to read and saw that I joined the party a bit late. Cheers 🙂

  13. Great post. We are thankful for the young men and women who put their lives in jeapardy to protect the freedoms we enjoy. We are proud to be Americans.
