According to the results of a patriotic survey, 71 percent of the Nation’s citizens believe that the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be ashamed of America today.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wasted College Students Show Deplorable, Hilarious Ignorance Of American History

 

 

 

 

” Welcome back from the long holiday weekend, Daily Caller readers. As you settle into the rest of the summer, take a moment to laugh at these young, almost certainly drunk and possibly stoned American college kids who know nothing about the origins of the country.

YouTube pranking crew Whatever is behind the video. The interviews occurred on July 4th in student-ridden Isla Vista, California, where a typical resident attends the University of California, Santa Barbara or, perhaps, Santa Barbara City College.

“It’s July 4th today and I’m going to be asking people a little bit about the history of July 4th,” explains the narrator at the outset of the clip.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Awkward: President Obama Stumbles Through Scripted ‘Patriotic’ Speech

 

 

” President Obama stumbled through a “patriotic” speech on the Fourth of July, reading verbatim a text on America’s improbable experiment in “democracy” in a staccato and droll tone.

Surrounding him was a dour cast of stoic figures — save for First Lady Michelle Obama, who broke into “slow applause” mode when her husband called America “the greatest nation on earth” while a smattering of hand-clapping accompanied her.

The president should be given credit for going through the motions and for shoring up his patriotic bonafides. If only he believed those words about our destinies not being determined for us and that people should live as they please.”

Parade Marchers, Soldiers Banned From Carrying Rifles During Local Parade For First Time in 100+ Years

” In Belton, TX, the 4th of July parade is an event with deep and long standing traditions. Since 1850 the town has held an annual parade to celebrate Independence Day. For much of that history, Color Guards and, more recently, civil war re-enactors have marched in the parade with slung or carried rifles.

This year will be different. After the organization, Open Carry Texas, signed up (and was approved) to march in the parade with their rifles, the insurance company is now saying all guns will be disallowed – if the parade wants to keep its insurance that is.”
