It’s the 150th anniversary of the resolution of the Vicksburg campaign. I only wish we could round up General Grant and the boys and send them to liberate some other places, like maybe Kansas.
And maybe the ghost of Sherman will begin planning his sweep through the Neo-Confederate South, liberating the states from Fascist Dominionist Christian Evangelical Theocracy, and finish his campaign near my former home town of Fayetteville, in the newly (even MORE) religiously insane state of North Carolina
Happy 4th of July, everyone!
Let’s enjoy it while we can, before we’ll all have to spend the entire day at mandatory prayer for this Exceptional Christian nation, and then be treated to a patriotic show that will feature a fly-over by military jets, and a fireworks display of Jesus holding the Bible in one hand and the Constitution in the other, while the band plays, “Star and Stripes Forever,” followed by “Onwards Christian Soldiers,” and the grand finale, where everyone will be required to sing along with our new national anthem – “God Bless the USA.”
Yes, where is General Grant when you really need him? (never mind, I know the answer )
