The Hive – Happy(ish) Fourth Of July!

Here again is our randomly occurring weekly discussion thread, where members can hold forth on things that may not relate directly to the news of the day.

We also thought we would take this opportunity to wish all of our merry band a happy Independence Day!

If it is possible to be happy given the current state of our republic.

Still, we should remember that thanks to our Founding Fathers we still have the right to do our best to redress our problems legally.

At least for now.

Happy Fourth Of July!

And watch what food you give any Iranian mullahs who might be attending your parties.

They are said to be touchy.

    Enjoy what you have while you have it.

    And plan for the worst……in every respect.

    Because we will get our country back from the diseased vermin who are trying to steal it and set themselves up as unassailable emperors.

    While it’s easy to get depressed about the current state of our republic, when I receive emails like the one below, it renews my faith in our country and faith that at least some in the rest of the world appreciate that we are helping them. Believe me when I tell you that this email would not have been sent without the expressed approval of the Ukrainian Border Guards Commanding Officer, General Litvin. Vadim’s english isn’t perfect but I pasted it exactly as he wrote it.

    From: Ivko Vadim [****@pvu.gov.ua]
    To: Larry Miller (and many others that can’t be named)
    Subject: Congratulations!

    Dear friends and colleagues,
    I want to congratulate you on the 233rd Anniversary of the Independance of the United States of America.
    We are very proud of having joint projects with you and hope while doing with us you became a little bit more educated about Ukrainian people and more confident in mutual benefit of our cooperation.
    God bless America in its activity of assisting other nations establishing safe, secure and better world!

    Happy 4th of July!

    With warmest wishes,
    Vadim Ivko
    Deputy Chief
    Office on International Assistance
    International-Law Department
    Administration of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine

    Happy Birthday America! It’s good to be home in the USA to enjoy it.

    Best of 4ths to all of my new friends here. One year ago I was uninformed, uninterested, and blissfully going nowhere. Life and God had their own way of showing me the grace of true liberty (mostly by making me suffer the consequences of my own actions), a journey for which I am now eternally grateful. So today I celebrate my Independence Day in addition to my nation’s.

    Happy Fourth everyone. The heck with hope, keep the faith.

    Here’s a fun video to watch that will put a smile on your face. The lesson: It just takes one person.

    Happy Birthday America.

    Here’s an oldie but a goody, which I’ve posted here numerous times in the past. It’s always appropriate -especially today:

    Happy Fourth of July to everyone! May there be a lot more.

    Happy 4th of July all! I’ve been staying at a local mountain resort all week. Today there was not one, but TWO Tea Parties up here! Land of the Free, Home of the Brave!

    Happy 4th!

    Good to see DW and sj.

    This is a little late, but here in my liberal University town for the second year in a row, fireworks were canceled because of budgetary reasons (sure). They found money to landscape road medians with palm trees, flowers and shrubs, subsidize solar roof panels for private homeowners, create brick-inlay crosswalks downtown and my favorite, allocate city tax revenue for a “one stop” homeless center.
    Anyone see the movie “American Carol”? Not the greatest, but living here in East Berkeley it made me chuckle.
