Tube flag burningFOURTH OF JULY, 2016


Oh yeah, The 4th Of July. This country is 240 years old today and as a nation we are doing quite nicely destroying everything our founding fathers philosophically created.

Today we have hit the pinnacle of stupidity by creating a situation where the height of national leadership is between dufus one and dufus two. And because we have discovered a “woman” who is as fuck-up as a “man” we think we have made some sort of progress.

What we have accomplished is the choice to “vote” (a meaningless term, in truth) for TWO EVILS!

Finally we have broken that mold of having to “vote” (a meaningless term, in truth) for the “LESSER” of two evils to the ultimate prize of putting our support toward EVIL!

You have got to admit that that is American Exceptionalism at its finest!

So get out the old red, white, and blue and hang that fucking flag out on your doorstep so at least Tubularsock will know the people to avoid in his neighborhood when he does come out of his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA! (see: The Bunker Tour)

But really, we as a country have made progress. We now know that a “Black-man” is just as fucked up as a “White-man”. And really you can’t trust buying a used car from either.

And speaking about buying, the American pastime (not baseball), we Americans spend over ONE BILLION DOLLARS a year on …… wait for it ……. FIREWORKS! Yep, fireworks. That is according to the APA. Yes, we even have an APA. Oh, in case you were not up on American reality the APA is The American Pyrotechnics Association!

Really, a lobbyist group to advocate for MORE FIREWORK SALES!
And most of these fireworks are imported from China! You know, that country we can’t “trust” so Obummer pivoted toward Asia with our military to ahhh …… hmmm, maybe to protect the APA’s interest.

And this is a business Tubularsock wants to get into. Think about it. Some American smuck will work a twelve hour work day at a job he hates and then goes out and buys a loud, smoky firework that when lit lasts about 6 seconds for $14.95. And he’ll buy eight of them! It would be proper to call him a dumb shit but Tubularsock will refrain from even giving this dumb shit dumb shit recognition!

Tube America:china
And to top this bull shit off, Americans love to express patriotism on Independence Day by displaying the stars and stripes. And according to the U.S. Census Bureau the U.S. imports FOUR MILLION DOLLARS worth of American flags from overseas, including $3.6 million from China!

But that is not all folks! According to the National Retail Federation it is expected that the spending on food over the “holiday weekend” will be in the neighborhood of $6.7 billion. That is a lot of fucking hot dogs to choke on! Or maybe Chinese Take-Out to keep with our trend.

And you thought it was all about patriotism didn’t you!

      Thank you Esme upon the Cloud for your kind words. It was an odd occurrence indeed to find after Tubularsock had finished this blog post that at the bottom of the blog-chest, the one with the English Colonial decorative handles, some random left-over words that just happened to fit well in your comment space on your blog. It is strange how things happen when you least expect it.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Speaking of fireworks, just the other day I was speaking to a Japanese friend of mine, who claimed that nobody does patriotic “fireworks” better than the U.S. of A. . . . I had to agree . . .

        Oh yeah, men, women, and children all lit up like human-sparklers BUT ONLY TO SAVE LIVES!

        Oh, it’s always only to save lives and to set ‘them’ free, and the targets are always only ‘military,’ because we are so much kinder than ‘they’ are.

        But damn, as wicked as ‘they’ are, ‘they’ are always hiding their military assets among civilians, so we got no choice . . . no choice . . . none whatsoever.

        And then, and then, yes, as hard as making that choice that is no choice is . . . even if more had to have been turned into sparklers . . . to paraphrase a famous toad, “we think it’s always worth it.” It’s regrettable, but just try and make quiche without breaking a few eggs and then cooking them a bit, you just can’t.

        Yup, it’s the cost of freedom, but if you’re buying from, at first, a place like Japan, and later on, China, then it’s kinda on sale, eh.

        Now watch the fire-works! People died and are still dying so that you could watch them.

        “We have to destroy that village to save it”.

        Well in Oakland right now it is rather difficult not seeing the fireworks. The fucking bunker is surrounded by explosion so powerful that they are rattling the windows …. seriously.

        It will be lucky if they don’t burn down parts of this neighborhood!

        People just shouldn’t play with fire!
        This will be lasting long into the night…….. sure “the cost of freedom”!

    I keep forgetting the “independence day” bullshit.

    “Independence” from what? England? Wrong AGAIN! There never was a formal end to the so-called Revolutionary War, nor did England ever sign a surrender document.

    In fact, the English just picked up their bags and moved further west, into the what we now call the Ohio River Valley.

    King George won that war, the old Rothschild klan made sure of that.

    Today, what we the individuals, all over the world, need independence from, is this European royalty/Rothschild/Rockefeller banking-cartel owned and operated totalitarian government.

    Or, in other words, FUCK THE FOURTH! And God Fuck the US of A!

      dearing, great to hear from you. Tubularsock HATES PARADES but to each their own joy. It’s all personal …….. a very long, long, long time ago Tubularsock was in a marching band and in Tubularsock’s hometown it could get to 106 in the summer. The 4th always fell in the summer. Need Tubularsock say more?

      There are only about eight people in Crestone, right? Couldn’t the community just all meet up in the bar?

      Peace my friend.


  7. I have always had problems getting behind what our founding fathers philosophically created. I could never get my head behind the slave owning Indian slaughtering part. Or the secrecy around the Constitutional Convention – whenever they keep the minutes of a meeting secret for 50 years that should be a clue the people involved are out to screw you.

      Now, now DrB. You are just too sensitive. You do recall that God-fearing-fat-rich-white-land-owning-men do have a style all their own.

      You expected those heathen red-men and black-men to write a constitution?
      And dare say women couldn’t be trusted with pen and ink!
      You do have to admit that those God-fearing-fat-rich-white-land-owning-men were pretty egalitarian!

      They let Betsy Ross sew-up the flag and get them lunch!

      But Tubularsock does have to agree with you if a long overview is taken.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment.
