Happy 4th of JulyUsual Minutia
Bla bla bla. Independence. 1776. America. John Adams. Hooray.Internet Declaration
So there's been this "internet declaration of independence" that's been going around the web recently, and to be honest I think it's a load of bull. As much as I love free speech and rights and etc, I simply can't get behind it, and it disturbs me that so many companies ARE getting behind it. There's just too much entitlement from people on the internet who think they "deserve" everything, and it's really beginning to creep me out. I'm all for abolishing SOPA and ACTA other things like it, but I just can't in good faith get behind the "internet declaration of independence." Sorry.Anti-4th
What's with this weird anti 4th of July backlash that's going on? All the people complaining about the "patriotism" and stuff. I know it's always existed, but I've never seen it this massive before. Do people really just not understand the point of holidays? It's like getting angry at posts about Santa during Christmas, or about romance during Valentines Day. Is this just some sort of new concept to spread your anger at a holiday because you don't want to see posts relating to said holiday on the DATE OF THE HOLIDAY? I don't get it.'Merica
Speaking of things I don't get. What's with the abbreviation for America being shortened to the ridiculously ignorant sounding "Merica?" I'm sure many of you will explain it to me here and I'll regret asking this... but did I miss some meme or internet phenomenon for this? Is it just about being MORE obnoxious and thick-headed and douchebaggy by trying to intentionally sound like a dumbass?
1984 was a sci-fi story, please stop trying to make it real...My 4th of July Pride
