    Just wanted to say Happy 4th of July to all CF members, despite our countries issues, I'm proud of what we attempt to bring forth on this site.

    And just to let you know, I thought it was very odd that there was no mention of the 4th in my news paper on the front page this morning.This day used to becelebratedand put out there on the front pages of my newspaper every year. It just seemed very strange that nothing appeared this year. Anyone else see or not see this?

    Happy 4th of July!

    Carolina Speed, it could be that fewer people feel like celebrating what's left of this nation.I used to look forward to the 4th, mainly so I could shoot fireworks. Now I don't even care, except to take a few minutes to think about the White men who founded the country who were actually free and brave. My wife and I "celebrated" by working on our home.

    Well said Colonel Reb. The 4th just dosent have the meaning it used to when I was younger. I wonder how many so called minorities are proud to be American these days? Outside of some Indian and Asian immigrants I doubt to many would.

    I think today is an important day to remember those brave White men who fought for our country's independence over 230 years ago. However, that country no longer exists, as we really aren't independent in any sense of the word. Sure, we still have more freedom than most places on earth, but the country is run by oligarchs and a banking cartel who let their proxies in the US government (POTUS, Congress, etc) do their work for them.

    I also wonder sometimes about that other war of independence, aka the Civil War. The reason of course wasn't because of slavery as it's fed to everyone, but tariffs and taxes. The Southern states were sick of these policies which favored the North and put them at an economic disadvantage. They simply wanted their freedom and I believe the country would've been better off if the South had won the war. Slavery would've ended eventually anyway, and there's a good chance we wouldn't all be slaves to the banksters today. Edited by: foobar75

    foobar75, as a native Southerner I too think of our war for independence and the real men who were leaders in that brave struggle. A couple of days ago, I took a few minutes to educate an ignorant yankee transplant on why we don't all forget about The War down here. General Cleburne was right and boy do we see a lot of arrogant ignorance on display when people who were taught "their version of the war" open their mouths.

    Thank you for mentioning Patrick Cleburne Colonel! Very interesting man I had forgotten about. Missed the 4th, but I think I'll spend part of today reading about him anyway.

    Great post foobar75 and a happy (belated) Independence Day to everyone.

    I thought I'd just share my experiences from yesterday. I live in a nice part of Brooklyn which is mostly White near Prospect Park. My friends and I decided to bbq at the park like we did last year and we got there early to grab our same spot. Last year, it was many White hipster types who were very calm and civil. Well this year all the ghetto folks from the other "darker" side of the park decided to move over to the White side (most likely because their side is an overcrowded, mess on the 4th). All of these black and hispanic families had hordes of young children running around, mostly unsupervised, invading our "personal space". Multiple times these little brats' football almost hit our grill while we cooking. Let me say the little affletes-in-training had no accuracy in throwing and hands of stone as well which lead to many bouncing balls our way. I asked them nicely a few times to move in the other direction where there was space. This of course was ignored, so we later yelled at them. Their obese parents could care less about supervising and disciplining the kids, electing instead to stuff their faces with ribs and watermelon (true story). While this was happening little 'Juans' walked rudely through our area. My friend made a comment that this was a microcosm of our country today. A bunch of honest Americans getting "invaded" and "walked over" by none whites all while celebrating Amerika 2.0. Of course, all the Whites at the park were 20 or 30 something hipster types with no kids (ok maybe a few).

    The true highlight of the day was an argument between two ghetto black women. The park was closing and the rude, loud parks department lady was locking the gate to the bathrooms. Well an even louder and more vile woman is walking up the path yelling about her son has to "p*ss". Well the parks lady goes I told you 10 minutes ago we were closing up (which she did announce) and locks the gate in the woman's face. So the mother has her son urinate through the gate towards the parks lady, while yelling "you stupid b*tch" and other variations over and over. Then yelling, "f*ck you my son p*ssed on you, b*tch". It made me sad to witness this TNB on a day that honors our great and proud founding fathers and a once great White country. At the same time, it was quite funny and ironic to see a sista get a taste of her own medicine.

    Not to paint an entirely bleak picture of my day, I really did have a good time hanging out with friends and the food we ate was great. It was just everyone else at the park that was less than a treat to be around.

    I came across this a few days after the holiday but worth a read.

    The American Nosedive

    by Jim Goad

    Reading the Declaration of Independence 235 years after it was written, it's kidney-punchingly obvious that the United States government has become precisely the sort of bloodsucking tyrant against which the Founding Fathers revolted.



    These days our primary financial and political mechanisms, as well as every jot and tittle of rhetoric that dribbles from our politicians' mouths, all lurch toward centralized global codependency, whereas the Declaration of Independence encourages "separation,"Â "liberty,"Â and "dissolving political bands."Â


    The Declaration bemoans the fact that the King of England had blocked many of the colonies' laws, whereas today the feds' judicial henchmen routinely overrule the American electorate's will in matters such as immigration, gay marriage, and anything else that obstructs its agenda's steamrollering path.


    The Declaration protests the fact that the King had created a "multitude of New Offices"¦to harass our people, and eat out our substance." Today, America employs more people in government than in manufacturing. It lost a full third of its manufacturing jobs in the last decade alone while adding nearly two million government jobs.


    The Declaration endorses such terms as "common kindred"Â and "consanguinity,"Â whereas today such sentiments are confined to a despised cattle pen of cultural "extremism,"Â but only if you're similarly hued to the Founding Fathers. It's a ghastly irony that America's primary modern cultural demons are precisely the sort of people who made America.



    The Declaration complains that King George "excited domestic insurrections amongst us"Â and encouraged "merciless Indian Savages,"Â whereas today the feds file their nails while violently anti-white mobs stalk urban streets. A mere five-minute walk from where the Declaration was signed, here's what Philadelphia looks like these days. And like King George, today's feds encourage a culturally antagonistic alien onslaught, this time from our southern border by those who, mistakenly or not, consider themselves the common kin of the aforementioned "merciless Indian Savages."Â


    Although one of the Declaration's main grievances involved taxation without consent, I cannot name one of the hydra-headed taxes I'm forced to payâ€"under threat of imprisonmentâ€"about which I've ever been consulted, much less to which I've consented. And taxes now are absurdly higher than they were in 1776.


    And the modern federal government is obstinately deaf to George Washington's warnings about foreign entanglements and Thomas Jefferson's grave distrust of bankers.


    If the Founding Fathers were alive today, they'd kick us in the balls. They'd also say we deserve everything we have coming. And believe me, it's coming.


    It's grimly ironic that the first installment of Edward Gibbon's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire was published in 1776. The USA originally defined itself as a rebel against the British Empire, gradually became its successor, and now is certain to shrivel and implode.


    One of Gibbon's reasons for Rome's decline was that it had overreached itself militarily, only to be gradually ground down and pushed back by the Persians. As one modern writer puts it, "Roman victories in Iraq were transitory and self-defeating."Â Sound familiar? Gibbon also said that much of Rome's military had fallen into the hands of barbarian mercenaries who gradually turned against their employer. Nowadays our insanely self-loathing and suicidal notions of tolerance have allowed our military to be infiltrated with openly hostile Islamic extremists. And our virtually nonexistent southern border is now patrolled by a Hispanic majority rather than an Anglo one.





    Gibbon also blamed Rome's increasingly fragmented demographics for its fall. Fifty years ago, nine of ten Americans were of European descent. In around thirty years, they will constitute a minority. Gibbon pointed out that the Eastern and Western Roman empires split along linguistic lines, with Greek spoken in the East and Latin in the West. A similar trend is emerging in America today with English and Spanish.


    Other historians note that Rome suffered from an increasingly devalued currency that led to financial collapse. The American dollar is currently worth only four percent of what it was 100 years ago. This year, Standard & Poor's downgraded America's long-term credit outlook from "stable" to "negative," and the IMF predicted that China's GDP will surpass America's in a mere five years. We've rapidly plummeted from the world's largest creditor to its biggest debtor. Despite Democratic myths to the contrary, the national debt has been gradually swelling for decades. As with Rome, our unproductive, dole-gobbling masses are temporarily kept fat and complacent with bread and circusesâ€"but only temporarily. Fiat currency never lasts.


    We've fallen from the top perch in education, wealth, infrastructure, and life expectancy. Every cultural icon and historical conquest that was once deemed a matter of pride is now designated as cause for shame and perpetual self-flogging. Uncle Sam has been recast as a creepy relative who molests you. But to protest any of these ongoing cultural inversions is to invite scorn, to be labeled paranoid and stuck in the past.


    Never mind that the past seems far better than the present. My father didn't graduate from high school but was able to pay off a mortgage and buy a new car every three years by toiling at dirty blue-collar jobs such as plumber and oil-rig foreman. I have a college degree (summa cum laude, thank you very much), have rented all my life, and have never owned a new car. Forgive me, if you can, for noticing that things have changed for the worse. I can only despise a government that risked my father's neck in WWII and my brother's in Vietnam yet insists I remain quiet while it downgrades the long-term prognosis for my son.


    The upper left signature on the Declaration of Independence is that of Button Gwinnett, a representative from Georgia. Yesterday while driving in wilting heat through the Georgia county named after Gwinnett, my Georgia-born wife and I passed endless short brown herds of Mesoamericans and one Spanish-language sign after the next. "This feels like another country,"Â she said. I looked at her and nodded. We are choking to death on our own niceness.


    Our second president and cosigner of the Declaration of Independence, John Adams, wrote that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide."Â It appears that American democracy has swallowed a bottleful of sleeping pills, and it's only a matter of time before they kick in.


    And so today, July 4, 2011, I declare my independence from the United States of America. For now my gesture is entirely symbolic, and unlike 1776, there appears to be no frontier to which I can flee, at least not on this planet. But if anyone can suggest a viable exit strategy, I'll consider it more seriously than I do anything currently being spewed by our unforgivably traitorous government.

    Yup. That's why it's no longer The 4th of July to me.

    It's just July 4th nowadays.Edited by: The Hock

    When I celebrate Independence Day...it's honoring the brave men who fought to win our freedom from Great Britain & establish the Republic. I honor the Republic that used to be, still should be & will soon be no more.

    The only thing worth "celebrating", is the same thing that I mourn the loss of...the Constitutional Republic (America 1.0 aka the true USA). <:-(

    Interesting observations freethinker. I went to the beach with my family for the 4th and it was all white people/white families. It seems that trips to the beach are still one of those things that still resonate with white families. I am sure the fact public transportation does not run to the beach I went to has something to do with it.

    Anyways while watching the firework display I felt noting but a hollowness and bitterness towards what this country has become. I do remain hopeful that as whites continue to be the outright target of government discrimination that more and more will wake up. I mourn for our forefathers who established this country - they did not want this.

    Hey LeonardFan, I feel the same way you do. This country is done and we are watching it flame out in it's final years (or decades). A country this stupid and ignorant deserves what's coming. Just check out this short video to see what I mean.

    [video=youtube;_G0vdgMwdi4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_G0vdgMwdi4[/video]

    As much as I could blame blacks, browns and jews for the mess we are in, it's really stupid White people who allowed it all. Our forefathers created a relatively free country for us and built it into a rich superpower. Their ancestors pissed it away because they are lazy, greedy, selfish, vain, cowardly, pride-less, honor-less morons. These people don't exist in a vacuum. They are our friends, family members, neighbors and coworkers. We are all guilty by association.

    They say that Robert Moses deliberately built the bridges around Jones Beach low so that buses filled up with Diversities couldn't get through.


    They either wake up real quick or it's all kaput. But I'm a pessimist. I think they've got them too fattened up and dumbed down and brainwashed to wake up until it's too late. Besides, like I've said elsewhere, I think that the occupational government has yet to make their big move. All these false flag hoaxes, like the latest in Charleston, are just a buildup to when they get their 90 pound Kenyan homosexual so-called president assassinated by a "white supremacist".
