Happy Fourth of July: Viva la Revolution!

It's amazing to me how conservatives can wrap themselves in the flag and claim that they are the true bearers of the Founding Father's vision. Never forget that our Founding Fathers were gun-toting, hemp-growing, slave-owning, tax-dodging, ale-swilling, redcoat-killing revolutionaries.

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. —Samuel Adams

So celebrate the Fourth in true revolutionary fashion. Grab some pale ale, load up your assault rifle, and burn the nearest mall to the ground.
