Today is special because ?

Recommended Posts

I saw the fireworks display at Fisherman's Wharf with family and friends. I forgot how cold it gets over there at night. But it was a spectacular display, and everyone enjoyed it, apart from a flock of terrified seagulls.

Although his dad was Canadian, Robin was born in Los Angeles which means he is a US citizen. I didn't put Beiber because I know what I am doing.

 

Well, Robin Thicke was Alan Thicke's fault, and Canada did export Alan to the States. So technically Canada is still responsible.

 

Sorry. :whistle:

As a Canadian, I honor this day because of the ideals it expressed and strove to make manifest, that transformed the world. That all men are created equal. Everyone has a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Government of the people, by the people, and for the people. It's no secret the United States of America has often fallen short of those ideals, as have we all. But in just aspiring as a country to make them real, America has been an inspiration to people everywhere, and helped ignite a fundamental shift in how people see their responsibility to their fellow human beings. Whatever pettiness we may be dealing with today, that's a legacy worth celebrating.

 

Hell yeah!

All the pomp and circumstance, the prestige and decorum surrounding the British queen is similar to how the POTUS is treated by Americans. They hold him up rather like an elected monarch. In contrast, those of us for whom the Queen is the official head of state are far less deferential toward our Prime Ministers, even though practically speaking they're the heads of our countries. ;)

Seems odd that they left out Andrew Jackson, U S Grant, and Dwight Eisenhower.

 

I think they wanted each "action president" to be from a different era. Grant, Jackson and Eisenhower are relatively close to others in that group. As for the picks themselves, three are commemorated on Mount Rushmore; and what president in the modern era has as much name recognition and legend surrounding him as Kennedy?
