Happy 4th of July



I created this webpage a couple of years ago to express what The United States of America and the celebration of the The Declaration of Independence Day signifies for me.

I hope you and yours have a happy and safe 4th of July!

much as i'd love to find something we agree on, this isnt gonna be it. it may be the cleanest energy source on earth...until it blows. when chenobyl blew the whole of northern europe was covered in fallout & childhood leukemia rates rocketed. its wind, solar & geithermal power for me all the way!

with the best will in the world, accidents happen. Sellafield (british nuclear power station)has never (thank god) experienced meltdown, but even so, just the proximity of the plant has lead to higher birth abnormalities & cancer rates that anywhere else in britain.
alternative resources such as those i mentioned above combine the pros of entirely renewable energy without producing toxic waste with a half-life of 200,00 years.

anyway, with reference to the arms race & the russians being 'half-assed', in the late 1980s that russian leader whose name i cant spell offered Regan a 'we'll destory all ours if you destroy all yours' deal, which Regan REFUSED!!!

"Perfected the technology" my butt. When you get Cold Fusion (which will produce NO radioactive muck) then you can say that. Up until then, how can anyone uphold nuclear power, which produces toxic rubbish, in the face of wind, solar, geothermal and hydro power - all of which are clean, green, and infinitely renewable etc?

"We wouldn't need oil if we had more nuclear plants"
So now your planes, trains and automobiles are all nuclear powered? What an amazing thing. I'm surprised no-one told me.

"Hey that's not my problem"
So whose problem is it then? Canada's? I rather think that the dubious health of a quarter of America's nuclear power stations IS your problem, you being an American and all.
Actually given the relative geographical positions, it probably is Canada's problem too. Fallout tends not to respect national boundaries.

"with the major flaw being people like you."
You don't really know diddly-squat about me, so that's an impressive thing to say. I wish it WAS true. Having said that, from having a look at your posts you don't seem to know a hell of a lot about many of the things you seem to revile so much.

But hey! Why let the truth get in the way of prejudice!

The Major Flaw indeed. im assuming im included in the People Like You remark. it would be a pretty darn amusing world if the worst flaw was me & Cam. actually, jennierocket, i owe you a reply, detailing how Reagan can be classified as sponsoring terrorism. im lazy, though, so i'll take the easy route & copy & paste from an earlier debate....sorry if you get a sense of deja vu.
In the 1970s a brutal dictator Somoza controlled Nicaragua. He was dispelled in a popular uprising headed by a group called the Sandinistas, who in 1979 took control and installed a progressive/liberal government. Reagan, with his rather shaky imbecilic finger over the nuclear button felt American interests were at stake & proceeded to fund a terrorist organization (im not even gonna comment-i'll leave that to GWBush) to plant bombs in Nicaraguan cities and generally kill lots of civilians, because i guess its all very threatening to have a country so nearby to you advocating workers rights, & people before profit, and terrible terrible things like that. But i digress. So Nicaragua went to the UN, who passed a resolution calling on Reagan to stop his illegal terrorist activities. Calls which he promptly, err, ignored.
To fund his terrorists, he sold arms illegally to Iran, and continued to ignore calls from the international community to quit acting like a rogue state.
The Sandinistas, being such a very hardline dictatorship, held an election in 1990 and were voted out by the Nicaraguan populace who were sick of American bombs exploding in their towns, and wanted peace and social injustice rather than justice and guerilla warfare.

thats why. feel free to demolish my heros, if you want, but please refrain from insulting my friends.

Re:
Oh but honey, we're the dreaded "liberals", remember? Therefore nothing we say can possibly have any worth because at best we're deluded and totally ignorant, and we're probably freedom hating commie tree-huggers with cetacean fetishes to boot.

"To fund his terrorists, he sold arms illegally to Iran, and continued to ignore calls from the international community to quit acting like a rogue state"
- but she supports the arms race, remember? That was just America giving their good buddy the Shah a helping hand - he was getting behind, poor fellow. Which means that in order to be consistent she'll have no problem with North Korea developing nukes. They're just doing it to catch up after all, and a fine race it is.

I love spectator sports.

I don't know anything about this bay of yours, but after everything humanity has done to annihilate species after species after species of Life's creations off the face of the earth, those of us who take a stand against this sort of thing eg prtecting the decimated whale populations, can do without being called freaks by children.

I know how you feel. I feel much the same about your neo-conservative tirades.

It's good when people understand each other, isn't it?

Now, I'm curious. What exactly do you mean by "liberal"? You say it like it's synonymous with "atheistic, freedom hating commie".

I'm dying to know what you really mean by it - it seems to be a favourite label over there for some reason.

And anyway, you can call me a liberal all you want, just as I can call you an ignorant bible-bashing neo conservative. But such things don't actually prove anything about anything except the writer, and politically based insults are boring.

Liberal liberal liberal, me oh my. It's funny the way people wave words around without knowing what they mean.

I refer you to the works of the father of Liberalism, John Stuart Mill, an English political philosopher. That is, of course, if you'd like to learn something factual rather than thump your tub and eat bananas.

Re:
Radicalism of any form is scary.

Reasoned debate is good though.

I'm not sure who it was, but someone said "The next best thing to an honourable ally is an honourable adversary." (Actually he/she used the terms friend and enemy, but they seem a trifle strong for internet discussions)

But anyway, I honestly am curious - what does the term "liberal" or "neo-liberal", whatever you want to call it, actually mean to you?

If it refers to an actual group of flag-burning sandal-wearing crystal-waving hippies then I think I might understand where you're coming from.

But do tell. My curiousity is piqued.

can i pretend to be jennierocket & continue this convesation, or is that, you know, wrong. not that either of us know right from wrong. well, whatever:
What Liberalism Means To Me (Yes I Know This Is Pointless)
--social justice, ie, me not being allowed to make as much money as i like at the expense of everyone else.
--recognising that without dignity, security, & social justice crime will florish.
--being nice to people.
--tolerancy, weather that be of relgious belief, or sexuality, or whatever.
--not letting people get away with things just because it is the staus quo, ie shell in the nile delta, or nikes sweatshops.

alright, youre a bunch of republicans, what do you think?

american heros
I finally was able to read your POW/MIA page excellent!!!!!!
if you have not seen mine, here is the link...

http://www.logicsouth.com/~crash/JHGarner.html

I will never take anything away from any of our brothers and sisters who have given more than I erer thought I could but there is the un-sung hero, the one who serves quietly, does their duty and then comes home and continues to give by keeping the memories of those who never cane home as well as reminding all of that which they have and reminding them to be thankful cause we have seen what those who do not live here have.

You are one of those who served and still quietly serve. Accolades to you. When I fly my flag, it flies in honor of not just those who have given all, but those like you who love this country that we have helped in some way to maintain.

On this July 4th, my 47th I am proud to have those such as you, Vetrerans, standing with me, saluting Our Country, our Freedom.
