Sunday Funday: July Fourth Edition!

First off to all our readers in Canada – Happy Canada Day tomorrow!

For all you firecracker fiends – please be careful and if you don’t have to, don’t blow those things off. Think of the veterans who are traumatized by explosions. Also the pets that are also traumatized. 

Finally – do we really have a serial rapist as president? Twenty-two accusations is a big pile of seemingly credible accusations:

That is surely many more accusations than all the other presidents combined by about 22.

Let’s do some history, some contemporary and maybe only a little Dear Leader this week.

Mark Twain:

The business aspects of the Fourth of July is not perfect as it stands. See what it costs us every year with loss of life, the crippling of thousands with its fireworks, and the burning down of property. It is not only sacred to patriotism and universal freedom, but to the surgeon, the undertaker, the insurance offices – and they are working it for all it is worth.
