Second for the 4th, as is our want and tradition, below is our favorite 4th of July video, one we love a whole bunch but really love because of this lyric: “I wrote a poem on a dog biscuit | And your dog refused to look at it | So I got drunk and looked at the Empire State Building | It was no bigger than a nickel …” Check this out:
Third for the 4th, here is SLPL Commissioner Rube Furrow (aka, Joe Livernois) giving it his best while conducting a rousing rendition of "Stars and Stripes Forever" with the Monterey Bay Symphony back in 2009:

29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of The Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand for the dignity of human life.

It's a topsy-turvy world when we quote a priest, especially on Father's Day, but, I mean, he is a father. And he speaks truth. Read his whole Twitter thread below. Enjoy the other Tweets while you're at it.
Anyway, idiots, all the spineless and cowardly GOP senators and representatives who are allowing this to happen are complete complete and total idiots. So, too, is every single person who deludes themselves into thinking they hold any moral high ground while still supporting these heinous idiots in this administration who are creating concentration camps for children of desperate people seeking asylum. Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! you absolute Foxtrotting, lowlife imbeciles. Seriously, W?! T?! F?!

Now @SpeakerRyan imagine Liza frozen in terror alone in a warehouse, Charlie tearing at the pants of a stranger as he screams for his mom, and Sam wrapped in a scratchy blanket sobbing on a cold slab of concrete.

Not 1 Republican! Not one Republican will stand against the savage tearing away of children from their childhoods. Not 1 Republican. You lowlife, ugly, subhuman waste. You disgrace your country for all time... https://t.co/nPPzj6sYOc— Ron Perlman (@perlmutations) June 18, 2018
Eleanor Roosevelt was too busy fighting segregation, writing a syndicated column for 30 years, earning 35 honorary degrees and flying with Amelia Earhart but cool that we finally have a First Lady who never talks but has perfect eyebrows. https://t.co/Z7wh0O35l0— Daniel Kibblesmith
