July 4th should conjure up feelings of liberty, freedom, and patriotism. It is a celebration of the birth of the United States of America.It is not just another holiday from work, but a celebration of those who have gone before us to ensure our freedoms.
“Americans should remember as they celebrate July 4th that it is also called Independence Day for a reason. It should not be lost during the barbecues, fireworks celebrations, concerts, and parades that this holiday was established to reflect on the meaning of freedom and personal rights.”
“Every Ordinary Fourth by THE EDITORIAL BOARD
“Do we, as a nation, eat more hot dogs on July Fourth than any other day of the year? What about potato salad and deviled eggs? Are there still legions of children hand-cranking ice cream, watching the pale gray slurry of rock salt and ice with appalling impatience while the grown-ups stand by recalling their own apprenticeship at the crank?”
The words liberty, freedom, and patriotism as a description of the meaning of America do not occur once in the editorial.
What is wrong with the New York Times? What is happening to America? We must wake up soon before our freedoms are lost.
The Fourth of July is more than a day of celebration and remembrance; it is another opportunity to say thank you and be thankful for our freedom.
This is especially true of our medical freedom and the impingement of that freedom with Obamacare.
