    How totally appropriate. 4th of July is an American holiday and there are no Americans in Washington DC.

    The rioting and looting, however, can go on as scheduled.

    Noise curfew a reason to cancel fireworks for the Fourth? Our second President must be churning in his grave. John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail the day after the signing of the Declaration of Independence how he thought Independence Day should be celebrated: [Adams’ spelling]
    “It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”

    Well, at least Adams’ posterity is still permitted games and sports on the Fourth: the Nationals were graciously allowed to play baseball this afternoon– losing to the Dodgers, 5-1.

    Independence Day celebratory fireworks are sounding all around me in southern Maine. We are at least that free still.

    Diana, disagree, this is still the greatest nation on the planet!. Agree we have growing pains, We The People ARE the solution. MSM, DC, simply have to be held accountable, at all levels, all three branch’s.
