Barry's correct, unfortunately. Thanks to his anti-employment, "spread the wealth" policies we now have the lowest workforce participation rate since 1977, and over 93 million people who aren't in the work force(and, of course, don't even exist as far as unemployment calculations are concerned). And who knows, maybe a lot of them really do believe that the 4th is "in dependence" day. That's certainly what their voteswould indicate.
But those worries are for another time. For now, let's forget our troubles, fly the flag, quaff a cold beer, and celebrate this glorious holiday with family, friends, and many flags!
Many thanks to Stilton Jarlsberg for this and other great contributions to the eye wakening of America.
