“Happy Independence Day!”

Wait, but I’m a Brit living in California. I lost that war. I mean, this should be a sad day or something, were I to give the slightest of fucks about these kinds of things. Then why is everyone so happy?

Got me thinking a bit.

Independence Day celebrates all independence from all tyranny. I can certainly knock back some burgers and watch some fireworks for that cause.

I am not sure I can say it better than Chaplin did.
