A Time for Freedoms

Today is the Fourth of July, one of those mysterious holiday, where I never know what is going to happen, what to make of it. There are no set traditions for it, at least in my circle of acquaintances. What are some Fourth of July traditions? I mean, the holiday was birthed from rebels starting a war. Should we all dress in Colonial garb, carry around muskets, or write long and wordy documents declaring the freedoms we want? I think instead we eat and set off fireworks, right? This year the eating will happen, but the fireworks won't now that Orcutt isn't allowed to have them. Hmm...maybe that is something we can protest, we can declare our freedom for, we can write a Declaration of Fireworks! Here are some things I'm thinking of Declaring Freedom for:

Freedom to bear cellphones while driving
Freedom to partake in firework ceremonies
Freedom to receive free state-funded Starbucks beverages
Freedom to set up private work-schedules (ie every Friday off, every other Monday a holiday)

Those in favor of writing a Declaration of these freedoms, say "I!"

I vote "I" for your declaration of freedoms...When in the course of human events it becomes necessary to break the political binds that cause us no free starbucks,cellphone use,fireworks, or feckless fun then it's time to vote for major change in this great nation-
VOTE OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A Modern Revolutionary
