Happy 5th of July  
What's with Yanks not knowing the name of their national holiday?
I mean, why do they insist on wishing people a "Happy 4th of July"?
It's called "Independence Day", you know, like the movie.

Maybe next "Australia Day" I'll wish people a "Happy 26th of January".
That's if I'm not too busy bringing to people's attention that we're celebrating the invasion of a country and the ensuing attempted genocide.

Of course, it's hilarious that Americans celebrate "Thanksgiving", a holiday about a friendly meal with the natives of the country they invaded. That way, they can pretend that the genocide never happened.

"What have the Injuns got to complain about? They got them there cashinos."

But, back to "Independence Day".
As we all know, it's a celebration of the day that a bunch of rich, white slave-owners decided they were sick of paying tax and they were willing to go to war over it.

Not surprising, really, considering history shows that the United States is willing to go to war over the most imaginary of reasons.

The US went to Korea and Vietnam because of an international Communist conspiracy that didn't exist, and they (and us, sadly) are up to their armpits in Iraq looking for:

A) Weapons of Mass Destruction that don't exist.
B) A terrorist leader that isn't there.

Hell, I'd be willing to wager that Osama bin Laden has never been to Iraq in his entire life.

But, I guess the point is that the average citizen of the "free world" can't tell the difference between one camel-jockey and the next.

Anyway, America, enjoy your freedom and independence, warm in the glow of another country liberated.


Death is the ultimate freedom.

If you were logged in to ICQ - I could point out your spelling mistakes in private instead of here in public.

By the way, if you want to pretend to be an American it might help to not post from a "nexnet.net.au" server.

Wrong, America doesn't help countries. They stick their nose in other countries business and often end up creating more trouble. They create bullshit reasons for wars and all that. It's no wonder they got attacked... Maybe you should watch Michael Moore's brilliant work. He knows the government are screwed up over there even though he's probably just as much a patriotic citizen as you. That's a fact that you have to face too...

Funny youu should ask that.
I actually have the book Q & A with Dr. K: Why it is so, by Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, that has the results of the mass poll they conducted to try and answer that very question.
Do you want to borrow it?
