How was your July 4th Independence Day celebration?

What are we celebrating? We can’t celebrate what’s happening in this country right now—gutting the State Department, gutting the Energy Department (oops—it makes sure nuclear weapons are kept track of) gutting and corruption in our EPA, invective from left and right on Twitter, a President so full of lies and hate that he’s inspired millions to follow his path…

But we can celebrate good, simple food. Community. Being alive. That’s what I did, on my fourth, in a simple high-up mountain town.

Of course, not everyone has access to good, simple food. Sometimes, my mom and I didn’t, when I was growing up. But we had safe streets and I had a good education. So appreciate your privilege, whatever form it may come in. And use it, use it, use it to care for others.

With big love to each and every one of you.

I’ll leave you with this quote, by a Republican, worth listening to:

 “I never mind picking up new titles. Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia, Terminator, Governor. If you want to call me snowflake, that’s fine— it would have made an excellent Mr. Freeze line. But let me give you some advice. If you are going to call somebody a snowflake because they believe in a different policy than you, you might want to look in the mirror. When you see an idea you disagree with, you can get angry, or you can learn. I’d recommend you research and learn and grow. You can still disagree—that’s the best part about being American. But at least you can disagree with evidence and analysis. We can all be better if we simply don’t react. ? Pause, reflect, learn and then decide if you want to call somebody a snowflake. Good luck with everything.” ~ Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger

This is what happens when a group of individuals allow their party to be hijacked by a CON MAN.........I realize these same people were lied to and cheated for decades.......Yet they continued to vote for this same political party.........VOTE FOR US! Watch your standard of living etc go down the drain...........A reasonable person would kick himself or herself in the head a few times after doing this........But no! NOW the CON MAN has arrived..See you really were STUPID! But it's not you! Nope! It's the ESTABLISHMENT.........See they're the ENEMY! Vote for me instead. I will make America Great Again.........Of course, the ESTABLISHMENT has now voted itself one of the biggest tax giveaways in all American history.........The little guy/gal has been really cheated this time...........but ah............these folks NEVER seem to learn..........A sucker born every minute......

I’m with Linda. watch where you digest your news. Thank God for borders or there would be no country. Socialism never works. Two sides to every story, except in Elephantjournal

Well said Waylon! Thanks!

Our GREAT nation is going through it’s worse leadership EVER! Sorry, Linda... but if you think Trump is doing such a great job, why is everyone resigning? Why is virtually every Senator (including some Republicans) standing up to him? Trump supporters call it Fake News, when in reality....it is him and his followers that are fake. 💖📿 Namaste

Very well said.

You appear to be extremely confused about our great nation and it’s leadership. Be careful what you listen to as truth.
