Happy 4th of July

From my home to yours, I'm hoping all have a joyous and safe 4th..

That flag was to be wrapped around me when I departed from this world.... a job where men die young. You see I never thought that I would of ever make it to my retirement, this wasn't a thought nor did I care. I'm not a war junkie but just a man that strongly believes in the good of this world and would give it all to defend it. The flag is a symbol of us and the American people. -13 stripes... 13 brave colonies that fought for their independents from the superpower of its time… Not even a military force but just a group of rebels… rebels with just hope, grit and determination. Stars taken from the skies…illustrating our individual states. The colors… RED representing blood, war and courage that allowed for our freedom, BLUE standing for justice and freedom, and white representing purity. These are things I do know… What else I do know is if you step, burn or disrespect the symbol that my forefathers and my brothers have fought and died for in front of me… You will have a bad fucking day…

Love your country and be proud of our history... or go live somewhere else. It's that easy...

Happy 4th of July everyone. 🙂

To you all as well. Family are better than gadgets, hold them close. (they're also useful when your hip is acting up and the back deck needs to get fresh boards on it. I get to be NCOIC of the burgers.)

Happy 4th to all of you here and to all of those who have have served! God bless and protect those serving now and especially those that are deployed in harms way, defending our freedoms and allowing us to enjoy this day.

Have a happy birthday AMEricans!

Celebrate safely and if you happen upon any “bastards” well, let your conscious be your guide.

Happy Independence Day!

Happy fourth to all gun owners. If you don't believe in guns, fuck off. You wouldn't have fought. You they/thems have Pride Month.
