Hate to be the party pooper, but I can’t fathom what people are celebrating. This isn’t even about those who don’t even know what they’re celebrating, it’s about those who do.
The fact is “America” is over. The tyrants who own us now are far worse than King George, and it gets worse everyday.
Taxation without representation: We pay 50X the taxes the colonialists did.
The Bill of Rights: Dead.
The Constitution: Oh dear.
Future generations: Already bankrupt at birth.
Liberty & Freedom: Please do specify how free you believe you are. Please.
US Sovereignty: On the ropes.
Fireworks: Made in China.
You support the Constitution: You might be put on a terrorist list.
And then there’s the people who don’t even know the first things about the 4th of July:
26 percent of Americans have no clue what country US fought to gain its independence.
It’s still the 4th of July as I post this, and for those of you who are seeing it on this day, don’t feel bad, that you didn’t light some Chinese fireworks in an illegitimate celebration. A celebration as illegitimate as the government that enslaves us.

Don’t know much about history? Apparently, you’re not alone.
As Americans prepare to spend the Fourth of July weekend enjoying the sizzling summer weather while marking this country’s independence 234 years ago, a new poll found that a whopping one in four Americans have no clue which country the United States declared its independence from.
In a new Marist College poll released today, a shocking 26 percent failed to identify Great Britain as the country the US colonies fought to gain its independence, CNN reported.
That includes the 20 percent who were “unsure” and another six percent who thought the US fought a revolution, starting in 1776, against another country — a list that included France, China, Japan, Mexico, and Spain, the poll found.
The poll surveyed 1,004 Americans between June 17 and 24. The survey has a margin of error of three percentage points.
This reminds me of this older poll:
Americans apparently know more about “The Simpsons” TV show than about the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Only one in four Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment (freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition for redress of grievances.) But more than half can name at least two members of the TV cartoon family, according to a survey.
The study by the new McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum found that 22 percent of Americans could name all five Simpson family members, compared with just one in 1,000 people who could name all five First Amendment freedoms.
Joe Madeira, director of exhibitions at the museum, said he was surprised by the results.
“Part of the survey really shows there are misconceptions, and part of our mission is to clear up these misconceptions,” said Madeira, whose museum will be dedicated to helping visitors understand the First Amendment when it opens in April. “It means we have our job cut out for us.”
The survey found more people could name the three “American Idol” judges – Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson – than identify three First Amendment rights. They were also more likely to remember popular advertising slogans.
It also showed that people misidentified First Amendment rights. About one in five people thought the right to own a pet was protected, and 38 percent said they believed the right against self-incrimination contained in the Fifth Amendment was a First Amendment right, the survey found.
And people scoffed and ridiculed when Ron Paul got on TV and said we need to end the Department of Education.
These graphs begin when the Dept. of Education was founded.

This short video quote is a choice example of the technocrat ideology of the elite that seeks to become living gods with brain augmentations and life extension technologies:
This is a clip from the documentary Technocalypse. He’s referencing the transhumanist agenda to become living gods via technology.
This particular individual is Robert Seed, of human cloning noteriety. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to hear the likes of David Rockefeller saying the same thing. This clip proves that humans are no more enlightened than ever as transhumanists often claim how technology is going to end our problems. Instead, it more promises to amplify them.
I’ve argued in the past that this precise issue has been a major driving force in the escalating plundering the earth and the US in recent years, to prevent the masses from also becoming “gods”.
THE WAR HAS ALREADY BEGUN.
Here’s a similar clip I’ve found, where this transhumanist tries to argue that its good for the human species to splinter off into subspecies tribes, and then destroy each other.:

Mental Disability Rights International (MDRI) has filed a report and urgent appeal with the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture alleging that the Judge Rotenberg Center for the disabled, located in Massachusetts, violates the UN Convention against Torture.
The rights group submitted their report this week, titled “Torture not Treatment: Electric Shock and Long-Term Restraint in the United States on Children and Adults with Disabilities at the Judge Rotenberg Center,” after an in-depth investigation revealed use of restraint boards, isolation, food deprivation and electric shocks in efforts to control the behaviors of its disabled and emotionally troubled students.
Findings in the MDRI report include the center’s practice of subjecting children to electric shocks on the legs, arms, soles of feet and torso — in many cases for years — as well as some for more than a decade. Electronic shocks are administered by remote-controlled packs attached to a child’s back called a Graduated Electronic Decelerators (GEI).
The disabilities group notes that stun guns typically deliver three to four milliamps per shock. GEI packs, meanwhile, shock students with 45 milliamps — more than ten times the amperage of a typical stun gun.
A former employee of the center told an investigator, “When you start working there, they show you this video which says the shock is ‘like a bee sting’ and that it does not really hurt the kids. One kid, you could smell the flesh burning, he had so many shocks. These kids are under constant fear, 24/7. They sleep with them on, eat with them on. It made me sick and I could not sleep. I prayed to God someone would help these kids.”
Noting that it believes United States law fails to provide needed protections to children and adults with disabilities, MDRI calls for the immediate end to the use of electric shock and long-term restraints as a form of behavior modification or treatment and a ban on the infliction of severe pain for so-called therapeutic purposes.
“Torture as treatment should be banned and prosecuted under criminal law,” the report states.
The U.S. Department of Justice opened a “routine investigation” of the center in February of this year in response to a September 2009 letter signed by 31 disability organizations claiming that the center violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.
