Happy Birthday Americans!

I post this every year (yes I do Osumashi) because it’s awesome. So here you go.

Perhaps, by next year, SMOD shall have devoured us. Who can say? One lives in hope. But until then there must be posting. Any other suggestions re. July 4th awesomness are more than welcome on this thread.

NSFW, pansies!:

    A big Happy Independence Day/4th of July to all Americans.

    Independence Day means Kate Smith. 29 years ago, us Vietnam veterans were honored with a ticker tape parade down Broadway. As we marched across the Brooklyn Bridge into the parade route, we sang this, and I wanted my voice to be loud enough for 98-year-old Irving Berlin to hear it in his Manhattan apartment.

    To all our American Friends… Happy Independence Day! You are still and always will be a great and awesome nation that I proudly call a friend.

    G Washington was kind of douche though. Bad military leader, great political leader with his eye on his role in history. He also never appeared anywhere in public not in his full military regalia.

      Washington defeated the most powerful nation on Earth. was greatly outnumbered.
      used mostly untrained volunteer militia

      • Hard Little Machine

        Washington lost nearly every battle whereas horatio gates won all his battles. What Washington understood is that all he had to do is fight the British to a standstill while the British were consumed with fighting the French and Spanish everywhere else in the world. After all the British still controlled Canada and that’s where the timber for the British navy was.

          yes ..he lost many battles and won the war
          he also refused to be made king by George111

        • Clausewitz

          Much like the North during the Civil War, it is said they advanced from defeat to defeat and won the war. Sounds like a strong “Strategy” to me. He was weak on tactics, but wise on longer term objectives.

    Aside from the facts presented in this video, and some of his questionable military decisions, in the end it still seems to have worked out OK.

    It does appear that he was under some kind of spell of divine protection. He should have died a few times over during our Revolutionary War.

      was shot at many times.. and they narrowly missed

      • They didn’t miss. The bullets just made him stronger.

    Ok the video is pretty funny I hope it doesn’t go viral though half the public school kids will believe its all true.
