Americans just wanna have fun on Independence Day. And that’s apparently a bad thing, according to Reuters:

It’s garbage. Much like this finger wagging from the article:
In keeping with tradition, cities across the country will launch fireworks after dark, perhaps the most emblematic way to commemorate July 4, 1776, when the American colonies’ Declaration of Independence from Britain was adopted.
The document enshrines the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which in many U.S. cities today involves competitions over how many hot dogs and hamburgers people can stuff down their throats in rapid succession.
In Washington, a hamburger restaurant challenges competitors to consume as many sandwiches as possible in 10 minutes, while in New York City, a seaside establishment stages a tournament that tests some of the world’s most formidable consumers of frankfurters.
We're plagued by self-hatred. You didn't know that?

It’s almost like they don’t understand why so many Americans have such a low opinion of the journalistic profession.
Blood was spilled and lives were sacrificed so that we can live in freedom. What people do with their freedom is their choice, not yours. https://t.co/xGLcqOGpQQ

Damn straight. But by all means, MSM, keep this crap up.

Meanwhile, we’ll do what we want, dammit.
And we're going to enjoy every minute of it.
Happy #IndependenceDay America!!!
