July 4th is a garbage holiday, I hate it

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

They need to replace Easter and this one with cooler holidays

Get rid of any "patriotic" holiday


the only federal holiday i observe is TAX DAY, because it's when my beautiful country gets its revenues to spend on cool new fighter jets

the thing i don't get is people being like "this is the perfect holiday" as though it's difficult to grill and drink beer with your friends any other day

everyone always wants to do that

Celebrating the “founding” of your country that was built on stolen land with the blood of slaves and genocide seems dumb to me.

I also say the above as someone who has benefited from these federal holidays also being paid holidays because hell yes, being paid to not come into work kicks ass

say what you want about easter but at least with holidays like that you color eggs and hunt for them in a yard and shit, stuff you decidedly do not usually do. sitting around drinking and grilling is just the weekend man, you don't need to do that in the larger context of celebrating the united states of america.

Yeah but drinking beer + grilling on a day when you're supposed to be at work is 100% more fun than doing it on a weekend, and without a federal holiday it's hard to convince enough people to play hookey on any given day to make it worth the effort.

fireworks become more relatable and profound the drunker you get
Do you think anyone but the most pretentious aristocrats could have felt that way before we trapped music in vinyl? I doubt it.

best way to celebrate this great day is to put “no no no, not god bless america, god DAMN america” on loop and kick back and ruminate on american atrocities
