Original message The Fourth of July - What it means to the average American?
Get out the boat and the water skis. Fire up that grill. Get out those fireworks we bought over in Missouri. Get out the water guns for the kids. Invite the friends and neighbors over for the feast.
But, under no circumstances, do not think about the sad condition of your country. Do not think of your responsibility as a citizen. Do not educate yourself on the debt crisis or what it might mean for your job or your future. Let the politicians worry about those things.
Oh! And don't forget to put up the flag.
