    i hate this fucking day. 

    people dont know what to do. they dont know how to act. nobody knows what to wear. nobody knows what to say.

    i dont like any of the patriotism today. there should be nothing. we should all have the day off.

    only way to get back at someone is to give them the day off.

    you terrorized us into a day at the beach, gratzi.

    its nice in LA but they got planes flying around with banners that say united we stand and crap like that and its bogus. thats such an empty and hollow catch phrase.

    people have their flags on their cars again, not in the droves they did before, but i see them and they do nothing for me.

    how can you be more American today? is there something? theres nothing. which again makes me think we should just have the day off and go see a parade, or go to the track, or catch a ball game, or call a hot chick who you havent had the nads to call.

    i remember two years ago they let us out early and i walked up the street and i saw my work crush going into a record store and i was thinking how i never see her outside of the workplace and how great it would be to get to know her and have lunch with her.

    but my mind was crazed that afternoon, im sure hers was too. it was nuts.

    ironic that this would actually be a holiday that people could get behind. its not religious, its not for some president(s) that nobody alive ever voted for. it’s not a hallmark holiday. it’s a real thing and a real reason to spend time with one’s loved ones and family and reflect and appreciate life.

    and most people would just sit around and watch tv which is what most of us did two years ago, but thats ok, tv’s not always bad.

    having your country muddle through a crappy day, a day that still is very sensitive to more than a few americans is a bad idea.

    since our president is so fearless about spending money that the nation doesnt have, i say he make this day a holiday and let people observe the most infamous date in us history.

    next year for sure im calling in sick.
