Unusually Celebratory State of Mind

July 5, 2008 at 11:50 am (Uncategorized)

I’m not normally a very festive soul on the fourth day of the seventh month, but I had such a delightful time last night, and I was so inspired by American materialism, that I decided (at the risk of becoming a cyber casualty) to post another cartoon.

    I talked to the man in the fireworks stand today, and he said that the reason that we get fireworks from China instead of making them here is because in Chinese factories they rarely have any kind of safety regulations or anything, and in the U.S. they are illegal to make. Also, bathing suits from Taiwan are cheap. Lame excuse, I know. But my last beef with your cartoon is that I am almost positive that Corona beer is not Mexican. I think that the people who started Corona named it that simply because it means “sea” in Spanish. If they wanted to be really creative and Mexican, they should have named it Cerveca (or Cervaca, I am not sure how it is spelled) witch means beer in Spanish.

    Sorry, I guess that last comment was maybe a little confrontational. No offense intended. :-)

    Thats so funny Hannah, yet so true!

    I made a mistake: Corona means crown.

    Wow Aaron, you must be one of my most ardent and loyal fans! I may not have a huge following, but the faithful few suffice.

    And you think Christmas trees, Hot coco, cookies and opening gifts, is celibrating the birth of Christ?

    In all honesty it’s all about remembering the freedom we have and those who died to give us that freedom. and we must not forget that.Tahts why we celibrate it. I mean we can so easly get cought up in the celibration, and forget the reason we’re celibrating.
    We do that with Christmas, Easter, and now like you’re saying, Independes day! But I’m glad to see you’re wanting to remember that day, and not forget it all together. But celibrate it correctly! (-;}

    It all depends on your definition of “correctly.”As to Christmas, my celebration of choice (confession ensuing) would probably be going to a Catholic church in Switzerland, and seeing the creche and the Latin boy’s choir, then carving up some sweet powder on the Alps,stopping at the resort to write a postcard to my friends, and finally decompressing in a sauna and watching little boys skate on an icy lake. Now you see why I need to marry a rich Swiss banker. ;-D (riot!)Independence Day would probably be spent in Holland or Norway. Resurrection Sunday would be spent (where else?) in Israel.

    But never the less it’s still impotante to remember why we celebrate our independance. and not get side tracked in any way. But thank God that he gave us this freedom, and we must use it for Him, to help other to have the same freedom, and True freedom in God.
    My choice of celebration would be to have every one I know over and have Ferendo Otega prefourm and have about 1000 fireworks……. and a BIG dance, that’d be a good way to do it. as far as christmas…… I don’t know I like it just the way we do it. I’m perfectly happy with it.

    I think Ortega is pretty booked, but you could get enormous remote speakers, and blare his music anyway. As to the whole dance thing…it would have to be disco or folk dancing. I agree /w you on the true freedom God has given us. Without that, it doesn’t matter how great our country is, we’re still sunk. And, I must admit, 1000 fireworks would be spectacular, just make sure they aren’t kind that attack people. (run for your life!)

    Do you think America is unsaveible? if you do, then were is your faith? I admit we are a wicked nation, not far behind many other wicked ones. But God says.
    “If my people wich are called by my name, shall humble themselfs and pray, seek my face amnd turn from there wicked was, then I will hear from heaven, and heal their land.”
    God does care for America.

    Please don’t misunderstand my statements and/or jokes. I never meant to say that God doesn’t love the people who live here, or that this kamikaze plane isn’t salvagable. Whatever you do, don’t take it that way. I am just saying that apart from God’s forgiveness, all the freedom in the world means absolutely nothing to our souls. We definitely must earnestly pray and strive for a revival, to neglect that would be unreasonably derelict.

  14. MennoGirl said,

    No, thanks to brilliant Japanese engineers!!! (FYI: you whispered, but I did not)
    And don’t tell me that you’re going schizophrenic on my blog.
    “Look,look! there it is! It’s…EVERYWHERE!”
    “Hmm….should we give him his blankie, or chemically sedate him?”
