The Faux of July


Exclusive to STR

July 1, 2008

Well it's that time of year again. The time of year when all good patriotic flag waiving Amerikans everywhere will celebrate the 4th of July and their 'independence' from government tyranny and oppression . . . or at least that's supposed to be what the 4th of July represents. Yes folks, the Faux of July is upon us, and it's calling out to idiot Amerika. It won't be long now before the sheep fire up the grills, throw on some burgers, drink a few beers, hoist their flags and pretend they are free; I guess ignorance really is bliss.

Be thankful you still have the 'freedom' to use your grills and drink your beer because your 'freedom' is only as good as your masters say it is and can be revoked at any time. Don't plan on celebrating this 'freedom' with the very things that our Founding Fathers used to celebrate their independence and freedom with, for you cannot be trusted with such devices. Go ahead and stock up on those faux fireworks that are government regulated and approved; nothing defines freedom like sparklers and smoke bombs!

There will also be those sheep who cannot handle the 'freedom' that their government has bestowed upon them and will instead attend a government-regulated and approved fireworks display in their hometown. Their pride will be evident by the sheepish gaze in their eyes as they look to the skies and marvel at the rockets' red glare and the bombs bursting in air, all the while believing that they are free. Although you are not really free, nor are you able to decide what you can do with your own property, don't let this rain on your parade. Stand up, wave your flag and try to convince yourself that the festivities you are participating in are not a joke.

It will never dawn on most of the sheep that while they celebrate this Faux of July with their faux fireworks that they are participating in a huge farce. Most of them will run around with a beer in one hand and a sparkler in the other while wishing their family and neighbors happy Independence Day, never realizing they are not really free and they never have been. The master's names and faces may have changed, but we are all still slaves of the tyrannical state.

This is one holiday that really should just be cancelled altogether. It's really pathetic for a nation of slaves to celebrate freedom and independence when neither one really exists. It reminds me of the chuckle I got this year when I noticed the tax books the IRS sent out had a picture of the Statue of Liberty on the front of them . . . what a slap in the face that was. I am sure though that not many sheep even took notice of this little gem.

Since there obviously is not going to be a revolution in this country anytime soon, I now am hoping that we will be liberated by someone soon, but by whom I am not sure. I for one am still waiting for the freedom fighters to liberate us from our own involuntary servitude and free us from our enslavement. Where are the freedom fighters? I keep hearing about how we are freeing other people in other countries and spreading Dumbocracy in the rest of the world, but I keep waiting for the day when someone liberates us and sets us free. I don't see it happening anytime soon based on the intellect of the average sheeple on the street, but I keep waiting.

One thing is for sure; it will not come from the likes of Barack Obama or John McCain; the only thing we can expect from either one of these Nazis is more of the same. My thoughts have recently strayed from new country shopping to new planet shopping since there does not seem to be any place on Earth where freedom exists.

So idiot Amerika, as the Faux of July approaches, get ready to raise your beer high in the air, light that sparkler and wave your flag while you toast another 'Dependence Day,' maybe one day you will really have a reason to celebrate . . . maybe one day you really will be independent and free.

Happy Faux of July everyone!
