Independence Day

It's nice to think that patriotic holidays in this country are not strictly the domain of flag-waving, gun-adulating right wingers and that we can, all of us, enjoy celebrating the anniversary of our country's Declaration of Independence. I mean, might we agree we all love barbeques, parties in the back yard, summertime, potato salad, beer and get-togethers with friends and family? So, yes, America, our Fourth of July is just a big excuse to party as are most independence day holidays throughout the world, from Abkhazia to Zimbabwe.

Dj Buddy B intends to cool his jets, though, and celebrate his independence from so many things -- including nationalistic holidays. To that end, I'll let Britain's Lulu take over to sing about Independence. Ironically, it was Britain we won our independence from and yet Britain has remained the USA's closest ally. Exactly like breaking up but staying friends with an ex. Sorry about that silly, little Revolutionary War, honey.

So, let Freedom ring-a-ding-ding and party on! Indepen-Dance!
