Freedom, Fascism & Fireworks

We’ve talked about Universal Preschool being nothing more than a feat of social engineering to train a workforce and consumers for the global economy.

On the 4th of July I attended a BBQ at a friend’s home. After a great meal and stimulating conversation about the New World Order, the China Question, and other topics related to globalization and liberty (can’t believe I wrote those two words in the same sentence)– the evening came to an end. It was 9:30 PM and time for our city’s fireworks display. My husband and I decided to drive to a hilltop to watch it.

As we drove through the neighborhood, I was heartened by families on sidewalks and in streets setting off firecrackers, fireworks, and supervising children with sparklers — IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE LAW as our city is a fireworks free zone! I absolutely relished the civil disobedience that was taking place — it gave me hope that there are people out there who don’t swallow the safe-and-sane hype hook, line, and sinker.

When I got home, the TV news was on — we left it on for the dogs (2 golden retrievers) who get “spooked” by the sound of the fireworks and are prone to chewing furniture when they get scared and are alone. The TV noise helps muffle the sound of fireworks in the neighborhood, easing the dogs’ anxiety.

Anyway, the robotic newscasters were reporting on government (city-sponsored) fireworks displays and through unblinking eyes and botoxed smiles they repeated the mantra in monotone voices, “Have a safe and sane 4th of July.”

What an odd idea considering what we are commemorating on July 4th. The Declaration of Independence was about as unsafe and insane (in a really good way) as it gets. That’s why seeing those families defiantly waving their brilliant little sparklers around in the dark ignited hope in my heart that freedom and liberty can prevail.

Of course, this morning I got a reality check when a friend sent an email with a link to a chilling 14-minute promo trailer for a new movie called “America: Freedom To Fascism” that will open in theaters on July 28th. Don’t miss it.

    Hi Dianne,

    I love the angle you came at your article on Independence Day with and relate entirely as “independent,” family celebrations of the 4th of July in Los Angeles have also been offically banned with draconian measures.

    In fact, we live in a managed community where the manager sent out a bright orange flyer included in the monthly rent statements telling residents in large letter to “CALL THE POLICE” on their neighbors if they see them using fireworks!

    The day the Declaration of Independence was voted on “will be the most memorable Epocha, in the history of America,” John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail in 1776. “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shews, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forevermore.”

    Yes, we have gone from freedom to fascism in America. God help her wake up if only to experience her super nova.

    Burn little sparklers burn!
