On this 4th of July, We Celebrate Freedom

Posted in Events, Politics with tags , , , , , on July 4, 2010 by Ro

On this holiday, most Americans celebrate their freedom across the nation by lighting fireworks, blowing shit up, drinking beer, dropping the phrase “founding fathers”, and getting into bar fights.

In the spirit of Independence Day, I’d like to highlight some of the freedoms we currently enjoy:

  • The freedom to invade other countries in order to enable a corporation to become a war profiteer and make billions in lucrative contract work.
  • The freedom heterosexuals have in voting to decide if individuals of different sexual orientation can get married.

And my personal favorite:

  • The freedom to own a gun and drunkenly shoot it in the air tonight, oblivious to the life potentially snuffed out by my bullet’s descent.

Here is a great holiday quote for today:

“Freedom is never given, it is won.” – unknown

It says that the author of that quote is unknown. I suspect it’s origins came from someone in the Bush Administration.

Tofurky and Gravy Soda

First off, I’d like to wish all of our beloved readers a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! I know this is a day late, but I’m in Los Angeles at a relative’s house who was waiting for me to get in and hook up the wireless router.

By the way, I ran across the perfect Christmas gift for that wacko PETA-loving relative who you never know what gift to buy for them. Buy them a Jones Soda Co. Tofurky & Gravy Flavored Soda gift pack for $11.99.

Each gift pack contains:

  • 1 Bottle of Jones Zilch Black Cherry
  • 1 Bottle of Jones Zilch Pom
  • 1 Bottle of Jones Zilch Vanilla Bean
  • 3 Bottles of ToFurky
  • 1 ToFurky Metal Lunch Box.

If you don’t know what Tofurky is, it’s a Turkey made out of Tofu. And it’s the most rubbery, tasteless piece of shit you could ever eat.  But your vegan gift-recipient should be used to eating this kind of stuff so who knows? They might love it.
