Celebrating our Independence

Happy Fourth of July with fireworks in the background

In just a few days, we will be celebrating the Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, which commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

During the American Revolution, the thirteen colonies legally separated from Great Britain on July 2, 1776, when the Continental Congress voted and approved our independence. Two days later the delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence to explain the decision. Since 1776, the United States has celebrated the 4th of July as the birth of American independence, with festivities including fireworks, parades, concerts and family gatherings and barbecues.

As you celebrate our freedom, take a moment to remember those that fought for our nation to continue our freedom and way of life.

    Mostly it seems good and reasonable. I’m worried about over-reach and (I hope) unintended coesequencns. In particular the lawsuit against the satellite comms company disturbs me. By HaDin’s logic, any telephone company or ISP or electric company or grocery store could be held liable for supporting terrorist activities. True, according to the article she merely send a harassing letter, but someone else filed a civil suit. Disturbing.
