I wish all my fellow Americans a safe and happy Independence Day. If you aren't American, have a safe & happy 4th of July.

Happy 4th to our American cousins (and I have lots of actual American cousins!)

No taxation without representation!
Happy Independence day

I'll be safe but I sure as Hell ain't happy…

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Radical words then, final in nature and meaning, and never subject to the whims of either the popular or the powerful. Any attempt to alter these precepts can only act to destroy them. They are either true in whole, or they are broken completely. May we never do so.

Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans, and to all in the world who hold these same ideals; they speak for you as well. Only tyrants fear to hear them.

Now, go cook some hot dogs, watch some baseball, and try not to blow yourself up with the fireworks!

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July to all our good neighbors south of the 49th! Enjoy!

It was the first step of many in the right direction. Definitely reason to celebrate.

Went sailing today to celebrate Independence. On the USS Constitution.

@23rd Fusilier: What a terrific way to celebrate Independence Day! I am envious; I have loved the USS Constitution since I read a history of her as a boy. Just seeing her is on my bucket list!

They hold the lottery each year for 120 people to sail on her for July 4th. We talked with people from all over the country. Check with the ship's facebook page for how to enter it for next year.

Happy Independence Day to all our friends and relatives south of the border!

Thank you all of our friends. May God bless the USA, and each of your countries as well.
