Frankly, I don’t care much about July 4th celebrations; because I don’t think many people have the slightest clue about what it’s about.
Clue: It’s about telling government to go get fucked.
And the whole weepy "Land of the Free" shtick? Ha! Don’t even get me started.
Accordingly, I’ve never seen it recognized or celebrated in any way resembling how it ought to be recognized and celebrated. No idea what the actual number of people there are who’ve actually read The Declaration of Independence (I did, just now, for the several hundredth time in my life), much less understood it, but it has to be a very small number.
So there’s my middle-finger, "Independence Day" message for ya. I rather think it’s become a cruel joke. Sorry.
But hey, let’s have some fun. Turns out that while Googling for something that might be interesting on this topic a GoTOQuiz that I put together a number of years ago came up. I’d forgotten about it, but apparently still remember all but one of the "correct answers."
Go ahead and take it if you dare. As I recall I think it’s pretty brutal if you don’t score high. Oh well, I guess. I am giving you fair warning.
