I Still Hate The Fourth of July

I love my country, but I hate the Fourth of July[1].  Why would I hate a celebration of the Declaration of Independence for the world's first secular nation?

She doesn't like explosions
This is why I hate the Fourth of July.

Fireworks went on sale this week.  They've been going off all night, and if this year follows the trend, they'll be going off every night for weeks.  Which means this dog will be scared every night for weeks, just because my neighbors want to blow shit up.

And she's the calm one.  There's an even more scared Great Dane alternating between pacing all over the house and hiding under things you'd never think a 140 pound dog could fit under.

Last year, I donated to the Wounded Warrior Project[2].  This year, I think it'll be the Nebraska Humane Society[3].

  1. Amen! (to borrow a term from the deity worshipers)
    I'm glad I live in the USA, but the idiots certainly are out tonight.
