~~July 3, 2017~~

WE ALL KNOW THE MEANING OF THIS DATE

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776.

There’s always been a big celebration for this special American holiday.

I’m finding it difficult to get in the spirit of things.

I believe that there’s a collective sense of depression in this country since November 2016.

My therapist and I talk plenty about this topic. 

It’s been interesting and, not totally surprising, that two respectable, knowledgeable and amazing fellow bloggers have posted to the effect that this year the sense of euphoria, happiness and celebration has dimmed significantly.

JOHN LENNON’S DEATH

Any lessons learned?

John Lennon was an English music artist who gained worldwide fame as one of the members of the Beatles, for his subsequent solo career, and for his political activism and pacifism.

On 8 December 1980, thirty six years ago, Lennon was shot by Mark David Chapman in the archway of the Dakota, his residence in New York City.

Lennon had just returned from Record Plant Studio with his wife, Yoko Ono.

After sustaining four major gunshot wounds, Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at Roosevelt Hospital.

~Keith Olbermann volunteers to lead~

Keith, bless his heart, is not going away.

“We do not have time for the White House edition of Celebrity Apprentice starring President-Elect Pussy Grabber.”

“Since no Democratic or liberal politician has yet stepped forward out of the morass of Politics Inc. to take on the responsibility of The Resistance, I, with complete awareness of the presumptuousness and arrogance of this statement, volunteer myself, and I will gladly turn over all these burdens to any more legitimate and informed lawmaker or political or cultural leader who has the guts to take these burdens.”

“The first step is to complete the de-legitimizing of his presidency and his election. De-legitimizing that he himself began.”
