Pacing myself. Pina Colada #1 was started at 11:38 a.m. Beer #1 was started at 12:51 p.m. Beer #2 was started at 2:05 p.m. I’m being good. I’m making a rule: No bourbon until at least 6 p.m. I want to not black out in front of my family again tonight.
Is it true that Thomas Jefferson was sort of opposed to slavery, yet he still had slaves, and still raped most of them? If so, why do we still celebrate him and his holidays and what he stood for?
I appreciate the day off of work, and all the alcohol and bright colors in the sky (although I’d gladly do away with fireworks displays and the ridiculous pollution they produce). But, beyond that, the whole thing makes me pretty sick. I hope everyone goes out and burns a flag today. An American flag, I mean. Leave poor Syria out of it.
