Yeah yeah yeah, I know another Happy Birthday America post. My email was filled with them this morning.

I think of apple pie, hot dogs, chevrolet and baseball.

90% of the emails I got had photos of fireworks, how appropriate.

This country has no shortage of firework displays, and I am not talking of those that are launched into our otherwise peacefull evening skies as a celebration.

It is the fireworks that seem to be launched from the pundits on the mountains to the left and to the right.

I feel stuck in this vast valley in the middle looking for cover and protection.

I feel safer from attack from the outside than I do from the division on the inside that is having the same effect.

In the words of the late Rodney King, “can’t we all just get along.”

Say grace before you eat your hot dog, pray for the United to be put back in the States.

Enjoy the fireworks on your journey††††††nada te turbe††††††††jim
