Happy "late" 4th!

Last Monday I took my laptop to my daughter's house and left it behind after my babysitting stint was up. It's about an hour and a half to drive there. So rather than go back for it, I just 'did without'. Yesterday they came to our 4th of July party and returned it. So I can now finish the extinction series which, while it has garnered some interest, overall seems as popular as a root canal. I will likely post the conclusion tomorrow. But for now........................

Thought for July 4th

If there was such a thing as Anger Management Therapy back in the late 1700s, would we have ever had THIS?

And if not, would we probably still be flying this:

.......instead of THIS?

Happy  4th of July, everyone! 
Sometimes good things can come from a source of anger.


  1. Without the American Revolution, or with it failing (which it came damned close to doing), my guess is that the American coloniees might have eventually been combined with British Canada in a nation which would've gained Commonwealth status in the mid-to-late 1800s, as Canada itself did.

    However, if there had been an armed rebellion (which is the term for a failed revolution), the relationship between the British Empire and its American colonies could have become irreparable, thus the Empire might have grudgingly granted those colonies independence in the early 1800s.

    Every time I'm exposed to the public shenanigans of that group of parasites called the British royal family, I feel great gratitude toward the U.S.A.'s 'Founding Fathers'... --C.K.

    1. I am sure that there are several things that could have happened instead. Such speculation is a great mental exercise, but there is no way to know for sure.

      My post was just meant to poke a little fun at our current way of thinking while wishing everyone a good holiday.

      And you will get no argument from me about "the Royals".
