Happy 4th of July
Every July 4th I ponder the greatness and bravery of our Founding Fathers.
The fucking British were nasty bastards with a history of torture, beheadings and mass murder of those who dared to oppose the King.
For example, Scottish Freedom Fighter William Wallace was taken to the Tower of London, then stripped naked and dragged through the city at the heels of a horse to the Elms at Smithfield. He was hanged, drawn and quartered — strangled by hanging, but released while he was still alive, emasculated, eviscerated and his bowels burned before him, beheaded, then cut into four parts. His preserved head (dipped in tar) was placed on a pike atop London Bridge.
Our Founders were giants. The bulk of our current crop of political hacks are either raging Marxist traitors or sheep frightened of their own shadow.
Your Editor is taking a few well earned days off for the 4th. Myself and Mrs. Editor will be enjoying food, drink and fireworks on the beautiful California central coast.
See you down the Internet road.
The Green Mountain Boys
The Green Mountain Boys was a militia organization first established in the late 1760s in the territory between the British provinces of New York and New Hampshire, known as the New Hampshire Grants and later in 1775 as the Vermont Republic (which later became the state of Vermont). It was headed by Ethan Allen.
the Green Mountain Boys led by Ethan Allen captured Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain on May 10, 1775; and invaded Canada in 1775.
We owe no allegiance, we bow to no throne,
Our ruler is law and the law is our own;
Our leaders themselves are our own fellow-men,
Who can handle the sword and the scythe and the pen
Hurrah for Vermont! For the land that we till
Must have sons to defend her from valley and hill
Our vow is recorded--our banner unfurled,
In the name of Vermont we defy all the world!
Then cheer, cheer, the green mountaineer, then cheer the green mountaineer
