I don't want to abandon the blog ever but the 4th of July, among other things, is for
-blowing stuff up
-ESPN's coverage of the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest
-celebration of these United States (as it used to be called, because it appeared the nature of the "unity" of the States wasn't understood as one country as it is now, hence the Confederate States' logic)
I will talk later about the state of "democracy" in America today, (really it is "republicanism"), as it the antithesis of monarchism, called "the best of all governments" by Pope Pius VI.
