Where has Patriotism Gone?

My city said it couldn’t afford fireworks this year. So I wrote to the commander of the nearby army base asking him to shell us for 30 minutes tonight. But instead of writing back, he’s sent two MPs and an army psychiatrist. Now I’m wondering whatever happened to the days when the military was actually proud to participate in Fourth of July celebrations?

  1. I couldn’t even find information on fireworks displays in my area. It seems that all holidays have lost their meaning. It’s just a day off now.


  2. Thanks for the laugh!
    Yeah, it seems everyone is broke. You’d think Washington could bail our fireworks show out by sending us some spare ordinance from that sucking economic drain in Iraq.


I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day.
