Leftist logic.

July 3, 2019

32-35 million dollars for the Mueller investigation is OK, but let’s don’t spend money on celebrating the people and materials that make it possible for us to celebrate the 4th of July every year.

When this writer was little, there was always a contingent of the military in the 4th of July parades.  Maybe that’s because I grew up in a Navy town, or maybe it’s because we had just won WWII, but they were there. You could even tour a submarine or a battleship.

Without the ragtag militias of the War for Independence, we’d probably be just another British colony today. Or a German state, or maybe we’d even parlevous Francois.

Another fixture on the Fourth was the interminable speechifying of politicians, especially in election years. So far as I’ve heard, Harris, Klobuchar, Buttigieg and their ilk aren’t staying home tomorrow.  I hear they’ll be in Iowa.

So, if you don’t want to listen to the President tomorrow, don’t listen. That’s called exercising free will, a gift we’ve received from our military, not from Bernie Sanders.
