lobotero in History, Observations, Society 4 July 2022 267 Words 04 July 2022 Today the nation celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence which begin our struggle to be free of Mother England.Some years ago I put down some thoughts on the Declaration of Independence…..https://lobotero.com/2010/07/03/declaration-of-independence/As you can read…..I believe that Thomas Paine was the true ‘Father” of this country….https://lobotero.com/2010/07/04/thomas-paine-the-father-of-the-u-s-of-a/The way things are going for this country it is good that we celebrate this day…..time for reflection on just what we have accomplished since 1776…..and what we have to lose if we are not careful.We have had our ups and downs since 1776 but all the problems are nothing compared to what is happening today….slowly the very foundation that our Founders gave us is crumbling….we need to be much more vigilant or we will lose everything we have gained since those early days.On this day we should not celebrate a person…..we should celebrate the ideals that made America the envy of the world…..those ideals have been tested in the past and we came through the ordeals unscathed….they are being tested yet again and the only thing I can say is….will be once again emerge from these trying days unscathed yet again?Today I will be spending my time with food and family….I shall fire up the grill and spending my day with Sue and MoMo, the two most important females in my life.Please enjoy your day and be safe….I will return tomorrow with my usual repartee….for this will be my only post for today.Peace Out!

This should be a day to reflect on the current divisions making life difficult in America. I hope you enjoy your day, chuq.
Best wishes, Pete.
That’s true, Pete. Because if this country fails, no one is going to send us help, air drop food and medicine, etc, etc. We are on our own.
I like to think Britain would help. I know I would.
I’d like to believe that, but we have an awful lot of people.
So very true….but no one thinks about that now do they? Have a great day chuq
Yes it should but all we Americans seem to care about is beer and fireworks….sad is it not? chuq
And the mass shooting near Chicago was almost inevitable too.
And the next one as well….on and on….chuq
