With what has happened to this Republic, how can anyone celebrate the Fourth of July, to celebrate is hypocrisy of the worst kind.

Well... if Obama tries to use the military to defend his exposed coup d’etat, he might be in for a big surprise.

Obama is an a$$hole. He hates the Military and any thing that bespeaks of patriotism or American exceptionalism... to quote a famous a poster here on FR “FUBO”.

This jackass isn’t a king. He’s a kink in the advancement of this nation. He is a traitorous, treacherous nobody who’s hell bent on the destruction of America.

He is the personification of evil.

Yes-—and half the friggin Republicans.

Right now Rubio McCain and Graham and Hatch and many more want us to give the country to Hispanics , maybe they can rename us New Spain.

Probably will get flamed for this but I don’t see an issue with canceling the fireworks if it comes with/after other cuts. We are broke and if it is between this and military readiness, the fireworks go. All that being said, I think there are way more important cuts than these.
