Here in Australia we have a similar although more ridiculous holiday on the 26th of JanuaryJanuary, commemorating the day some English ponce stuck an English flag in Australian soil n declared it the Kings territory, with a couple of boats full of convicts anchored of shore just itching to get out of their shackles and desucrate what was traditionally a black mans land...
They brought alcohol, lice, influenza and other diseases with them as well as inhumane practices of torture for crimes committed against the English law...
We debate every year whether we should change the date we celebrate this so called Australia Day as it is often reffered to by the traditional people of this land as Invasion Day....
Some minorities/immigrants are happy to celebrate and acquire their citizenship on this day with much merriment, whilst the traditional man of this land was, until not long ago, considered part of the fauna of this country and was not even given the right to vote until the 70s....
I myself do not celebrate Australia Day, as I see it as a commemoration of the beginning of genocide upon the traditional people but I do have Koori friends who wish to partake and invest in what we term reconciliation...
Does Independence Day, in anyway, acknowledge the plight of and misappropriation of lands of the traditional people of what we term America, or has he too been expected to identify with traditions that do not acknowledge his rights in accordance with the present day laws of these lands???

To put it another way....

Are you celebrating Independence or Tyranny???

If the Indians were really about this place they wouldn't of sold it for dirt cheap. Maybe they would have stepped up and defended their shit. They took a major L, but props to them for that casino money. They gaffled the US government in to feeling terrible and enjoy all types of benefits now, my wife being one and included. Oh and her family doesnt have a problem with the 4th, where do you think most people buy all the good fireworks?

Comments such as yours make me wanna hand you a blanket and some pretty beads, address you in a foreign language you do not understand and then write a historical account of our interaction where you are portrayed as someone who would give their world to me in exchange for a few measley trinkets....
