The Fourth of July aka Independence Day is a huge moment for those living in the United States of America.  On this day, two hundred and thirty-seven years ago, the United States of America became it's own independent country when the Second Continental Congress (Nobody ever talks about the tragic ill fated First Continental Congress) signed the Declaration of Independence.  It was on this day two hundred and thirty-seven years ago, on July 4, 1776, that President of the United States (And also General of the United States Armed Forces---The only President of the United States to lead the Armed forces into battle on the actual battle field---George Washington declared war on British King George III.  Today is British King George III humiliation day.  July 4, 1776 was the perfect time for the United States Armed Forces to invade Buckingham Palace to beat people up and get away with it---If General and later President George Washington actually had the cash to afford such a thing.  Needless to say, it's a horrible day for the English, but it's a great holiday for the United States of America.  And so with fireworks bursting in the air, let's celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress (Which became the Official first incarnation of Capitol Hill after July 1, 1776 and included future President of the United States John Adams and  Future President of the United States Thomas Jefferson).  Let freedom reign.
And as I'm lost in thought on the two hundred and thirty-seventh birthday celebration of the United States of America, here are some photos of Martina McBride.
