The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
First off, there is STILL an obvious flaw of application and understanding in that last paragraph as, to this day, this only seems to apply to the "johnny-come-latelys" who were demanding the very thing they, themselves, to this very day don't apply to the Native Americans....Indians as well as Olmecs (African descendants) who were ALREADY HERE and still fight for their own freedom and those same rights so eloquently written down and observed by the true "minority" and NOT the majority today.
And you wonder why SOME of us have issue. The collision of truth and hypocrisy has a funny way of doing that.
Secondly, DON'T GET IT TWISTED who was here FIRST. You can't "discover" something that is already HERE. It's just new to YOU and you "discover the experience" of seeing something new. And if WE are to celebrate "independence," then let's HAVE IT for ALL the people of this country FIRST!! Especially the original inhabitants of the soil.
On this day, EYE will eat some food. Have fun with a few of my family members. Come up with a few brilliant ideas to facilitate my OWN freedom. And do what EYE have always done since Baker's death: Watch the fireworks from my backyard alone in peace with a glass of wine and away from the maddening crowd while EYE toast one up to Bake, Mommy and Daddy and all those who fought for freedom, even at the cost of their own. And EYE will keep it REALLY real...no more, no less. But don't you DARE try to sell me on a one-sided story that's constantly promoted when there IS another story that has ALWAYS been there on the other side.
And as any GOoD Oracle would do, EYE look at BOTH sides!
