Fresh update on "independence day" discussed on Morning Edition

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve inskeep. And I'm Leila faulted. A year ago today, gunmen on motorbikes rode into Kabul and Taliban fighters seized power in Afghanistan. The radical group completed a lightning takeover. They already held rural areas and then the U.S. backed government lost one city after another. U.S. and NATO forces had just withdrawn from the country. For Americans, the compelling drama one year ago was in evacuation. The U.S. Military flew out more than 100,000 people, since then close to 40 million people who remained have tried to adjust to new rulers. So how is life for them? And Pierre's DIA Hadid joins us now from the Afghan capital Kabul to discuss idea. Good morning, good morning. So do you get us a sense of what today is like the anniversary of the Taliban rule. What's their message today? Well, yeah, the celebrating this is the true Independence Day of Afghanistan and this afternoon the government will hold a celebration ceremony at a Kabul auditorium. And on the streets, there's loyalists on motorbikes and bicycles and they've got fresh black and white Taliban flags, but mostly the mood is pretty muted. It seems there's concerns about ISIS attacks in recent weeks. There's been suicide bombings and explosions targeting Taliban supporters. But still support is a celebrating. Earlier we spoke to champs erupt man, here's a form of fighter who wears the typical outfit of a Taliban loyalist, a black turban, long black shirt, and pants, and we spoke to him near the graves of his cousins, who were killed fighting for the Taliban. And our NPR producer here fossil Manila la Karzai is translating for him. We are happy. The envision is ended and dependencies in our hands. The Islamic regime is established. We can walk and run around everywhere. This is the place of happiness. A place of happiness. And even for people who don't support the Taliban, there's relief that decades of fighting has ended, particularly in rural areas which really bore the brunt of that fighting for years with bombings, night raids, and searches. So you describe the celebrations of supporters, but I imagine not everyone is happy under new management, right? How are they viewing the day today? Well, Leila it's hard to tell because the Taliban government has largely suppressed the views of those critical to their rule. But on Saturday, we did attend a rare protest. It was about two dozen women marching down a cobble street

Was the Highland Park Shooter Seeking Attention?

"Let me say this very clearly and be straightforward. Why are people posting the name and the photo of the lunatic who decided to go and shoot and kill people at an Independence Day parade? Why? Do we not understand that this is exactly what he wants? He wants people to post his face to post his name so he can go down in history. If you ask me, his attempt was to outdo the Yuval day shooter. His attempt was to outdo the buffalo shooter. That was his attempt. Because he has probably zero experience shooting with an AR-15 and has the heart of Minnie mouse, thank God that he didn't cause more damage than he did. Because he don't understand ballistics and tactical deployment of an AR-15, he didn't, he didn't kill a lot of people which he could because he had a lot of candidates that he could have taken out. So thank God he wasn't as prepared. But in his mind, he believed he was going to go down in history to be the most prolific shooter in Chicago or not in Chicago, but in Illinois state history.

"Just some headlines that I'm looking at through the break from his holy influx. I don't know why you're not profiting from this big time Sean McConnell. All right, so Joe Biden on Independence Day America has quote come up short and feels like it is moving backwards. He must be talking about his own presidency. Joe Biden has to prompt Joe as to what to say at a July 4th celebration and I'm gonna talk about July 4th and how the left is really trying to undermine our traditions. They're doing this all around. I think even some of these mass murders that have been occurring by these terrorists by these assassins, if you will, notice what happened with waka Shah last year at a Christmas parade, the left is trying to tear down our traditions. So that murderer decided to attack a Christmas parade. I think in order to listen, this is a small town America is being attacked. That was a Christmas parade. I think the left wants small town America to be fearful. I think the left hates American tradition. I think they hate Christmas. I think they hate Easter. I think they hate Independence Day.

Were All of the Founding Fathers Slave Owners?

"Charlie, my friends all say the founding fathers were slave owners. What do you have to say about that? That is what John says from Pennsylvania. So I've done a, let's say a fair amount of public commentary on this. And I have to thank the great hillsdale college for this, honestly. So look, I went down into the hillsdale online courses, Charlie for hillsdale dot com. You should all check it out. That's Charlie F war hillsdale dot com. And I did the work. A couple years ago, I'd kind of just trip over my words whenever the issue of founding fathers and slavery came up. And I probably had a response that some of you gave like, oh yeah, but we abolished it and that was then and now this was then and this is now. That's not even a proper answer. Because it's not true. The founders all knew what they were doing was wrong. They wrote openly about it. So that doesn't make them hypocrites, it makes them sinners. As the great doctor Larry arn would say. 9 out of 13 a colonies had already abolished slavery by the time the constitution was ratified. The first antislavery convention was hosted in Philadelphia in 1775 by Benjamin Franklin. Thomas Jefferson admonished king George for bringing the Senate slavery into America. In the original draft of the Declaration of Independence. The northwest ordinance, article 6, said that no slaves should be in the new territories. But Nicole Hannah Jones insists that America's true founding was not in 1776 but 1619. Now who is Nicole Hannah Jones? She is the con artist that runs The New York Times 1619 project that your kid is probably learning from right now. Let's play cut one 53. 1619 in August of 1619 is when the first group of 20 to 30 Africans were sold into the Virginia colony. And what the project is basically arguing is that that is actually a foundational to the American story as the year 1776 because nothing would be left untouched by that decision to engage in the institutional slavery. So for those of you listening on podcasts, looks as if she has Elmo on her head. I don't quite understand. That someone went crazy with a dry erase marker. She's this massive orange head of hair. That is very bright. The sunglasses watching that clip.

Why the Declaration of Independence Is SO Important

"Emma is from New Mexico Charlie loves seeing that Steve smiled in church. Thank you so much. I'm in high school and my friends think America's racist and awful. They're happy to have the time off for July 4th from their summer jobs and from their sports, but they tell me that America is an awful place and we need to turn it over, have a revolution. Can you please help me explain to my Friends why the Declaration of Independence is so important and what exactly happened that day. It's a great question. Emma from New Mexico. And I love speaking at Steve's mother man's church. So let's read it. July 4th, 1776. Now it took three days to actually finish the document. It's really July 2nd that we should be celebrating Independence Day. But they dated it July 4th for a reason. Now, we must understand the time in the circumstances before. The declaration was signed. That this was a bubbling up of many years of the British Empire that needed to pay off war debt. They need to be able to finance their country to raise taxes. And their colonies in India were totally ravaged by, let's just say imperialistic hubris. Went back to Britain, they need to try to finance to kind of basically bridge the revenue short gap. No one in on the aisle wanted to actually pay taxes. They said, let's go tax those colonists. Now remember, before the 1750s or 1760s came around, the first Europeans to come to America and the first Americans came right near 1620. Now, Nicole Hannah Jones makes a big deal out of this, we'll play some tape from Nicole Hannah Jones, the wannabe historian, who does nothing but basically is a, let's say, historical arsonist. To what is true and what is accurate in American history. Of course, there were the first colonies on the eastern seaboard, Jamestown being one of them, then of course the Mayflower got blown off course. That is the creation of the Mayflower compact, which then of course created the first experiment in self government in the new world. For over a 150 years,

"Line, we got former active attorney general Matt winner, good friend of mine, got to know him a lot. We sort of traded books. He's been in my books. But Matt, it is good to have you on how you been today. I'm doing awesome. My friend, how are you? Happy Independence Day. Hey man, happy independence. It's good to celebrate it, isn't it? You know. We have the best country in the world. Well, and we just always need to remember the Patriots that gave the ultimate sacrifice or were willing to give the ultimate sacrifice. Not only to secure our liberty, but also to defend it for the last almost 250 years. It's really a celebration of just what makes America great, I think. Oh, I agree with you completely and looking at it. But I want to turn my attention, of course, we've had a, I think, and I said it in the first segment today. The left is calling a judicial activism. We're simply calling it back to reality and interpreting interpreting the law in a constitutional. I mean, what we're seeing out there right now is that it reminds me of the scene from The Wizard of Oz, the liberals. I don't think it's amazing because actual real law. But I want you to respond to this. I mean, what bothers me about this though is the president has been overseas. He's been to G 7. Whatever, but he's been there. But then when he had the opportunity when he starts talking about it, he actually degrades our court on a world stage. I want you to listen to this and I want to get your comments on this. I'm joined by a group of democratic governors. We work closely to protect women's rights after this tragic reversal of roe V wade. The terrible extreme decision in my view, upending lives and impacting on the health and safety of millions of women. And I share the public outrage at this extremist court that's committed to moving America backwards. And now Matt, come on. I mean, he said this day, but he said it on world stage. Tell me, what is this court extremist, except they didn't know what they want. No, I mean, I think this restores constitutional jurisprudence closer to the constitution. And I've never, you know, the Democrats are always talking about democracy, right? They're always like, we're a democracy. We're actually we're a constitutional republic, but let's not quibble. Ultimately, the people are sovereign. And this opinion restored the power of this issue to the people and to the

And you know the great thing about America, Kathy, is the fact that we have had scourges on our society such as slavery and abortion and Americans have worked very hard to write wrongs in this country and we couldn't do it unless our founding fathers set up a constitution where if there was something in there that was bad that Americans could come together and write those wrongs. I love the fact that we are more I love that we're a more perfect union. So what's on the menu out in Oregon for Independence Day weekend, Kathy? Well, barbecue, we're going to have beef short ribs.

Is the GOP Winning Voters? Or Is the Left Just Losing Them?

"You see, we talked yesterday about the 1 million voters switching to the Republican Party in a warning sign for Democrats. But I do not believe this is because of the brilliance of the Republican Party. I believe this is because of how terrible the left is. Now, the left is terrible for the time being. I've actually think we're going to have a generation of Democrats digging a deeper and deeper hole. Of policies and ideas and a worldview that is deeply unpopular because it runs against nature. You see, we're going to celebrate July 4th coming up actually on Friday. We're going to do our July 4th show in anticipation of July 4th next week because we're taking off an Independence Day. And when we do our July 4th show on Friday as we talk about the Continental Congress and we talk about what exactly was being debated when the declaration was being written, primarily by Thomas Jefferson, there's this beautiful line about the laws of nature and nature's God. We talk about that a lot on this program. So nature comes from the Latin word, which means birth comes out of the earth. Things that do not change. You see, inherent in being a conservative is you believe there is a certain natural law. You believe there's laws of economics, you believe that there's laws of thermodynamics. There's laws of physics. There's laws of politics and there's laws of nature. And so a conservative generally recognizes that men can not become pregnant. Generally recognizes that life is sacred. And so you kind of live within the framework of what we would call reality.

"independence day" Discussed on Life in the Son

"Welcome back to another episode of life in the sun. I got good news and I got bad news. Do you want the good news or the bad news first? The bad news first and then the good news cuz cuz why, because when you hear in the mad cow disease first, then the good news will make you feel better after the bad news. Are you trying to play psychology with me off? No, no. Okay. Bad news first The bad news first, what was the bad news? I don't remember that. I wouldn't. Well, bad news first and there is no bad news, I guess. That is the bad news. Well, that's a good news. Well, then I don't have anything more to report them know. Okay, here it is. Another good news is, we're just going to have high and biases in today because it's Fourth of July, you know, it's kind of dependence day. It is Independence Day. It is and, you know, I learned some really cool stuff about independence day today today to take off all righty, then too much had no. So anyway, what I learned today about Independence Day or about some people on Independence Day was people like James Patterson and, you know, a few other states men of that time who were, you know, really a big part of Waging War against England. They, they do expected. Well, actually, they thought that July 2nd shouldn't be Independence Day. And why is that? Whether it's actually when the independence Declaration was signed and they thought it that should be the day. Of independent, but if you look at all the history you know that it was it was signed but it was ratified on the 4th, okay, but James Madison and and Thomas Jefferson who were actually political Rivals. Believe it or not, they butted heads quite frequently off but they and, you know, after their political days, which was not very much left in their lives. They actually became acquaintances. This is if you would, but these men thought that July 2nd should be Independence Day and not, or should be celebrated on July 2nd, not on the 4th and oddly enough. Both of those men died off. On July 4th, fifty years. After this all came to be in that crazy. That is crazy, like, died on the same day off. Now, here's something else I found out now. You know, why we had to declare independence from England. Right. Right. I mean, you know, all the reasons why everybody knows taxation without representation, but there was a lot more to it, than that. The bottom line is King. George was very, very heavy-handed, if you woke up, and he was taxing the colonies so badly, because make anything and it went against what everybody who came here planned to do with King, George just wanted extra territory, and the people who were here, wanted Freedom. So the Tyrant King George when he got his fan off. Handed to him in the war of independence. After that, the 13 colonies would have mocked funerals for King, George every year for Independence, long. Are you guys? Yes. Yes. It is. It's very funny. But, anyway, believe it or not. You may depend or end up paying a celebrations and Fourth of July celebrations, whatever you want to call it. And we weren't the first country to have Independence, but these things been going on since two thousand BC, believe it or not, I didn't know that firecrackers 200 BC who taught. And you know, after after we won the war against England, you know, the first real ceremony for Independence, you know, they had gunships out, you know, on the Eastern Seaboard. And they did a 13 gun salute. Or one shot for every one of the independent colonies here in the United States. And there were there's a whole lot of things that went on like that. And I would go into a job, but I'm sure I'm sure these pie listeners really don't want to listen too long denied and besides it is Independence Day, right? It is Independence Day. It is independence. And there's a lot of fireworks last night too. When there was I saw something out there. A minute ago is like from every direction, east west, north south as all powers going off everywhere. I hope nobody catches any barns on fire this year and launches any bottle rockets in the wrong direction. I, you know what I mean? And if you do anything like my sister and I did, when we were kids, we would stand at the end of the street and shoot bottle rockets at each other and said, well I did, I did shoot a bottle rocket and bounced off the ground and caught her hair on fire, which is really kind of a surprise. It wasn't supposed to do that. I'm always saying that. So that you'll be careful with your bottle rocket, know, me? And my sister don't shoot bottle rockets at each other anymore. But anyway, be saved for the recipe. Of the holiday. Some people are going to be I guess out of school off work, whatever tomorrow. So be careful what ever? Watch yourself out on the roads. Don't doubt they're acting crazy. Don't have any open containers. Matter of fact, stay home be safe that way tomorrow when we wake up, hopefully everybody will be with us in tact and we won't have any sad stories to tell tomorrow because we don't quite sad stories. Let's keep everybody safe. And one more thing off before we announced that Tuesdays podcast, might might be just a tad late. I don't know yet, I'm working on it but we'll see what happens. I did want to make sure everybody kind of happy Fourth of July and Tomorrow is July 5th, which just happens to be Laura beavers. Fifth birthday month, and we are so proud of our little girls know you did. I didn't happy birthday and not tomorrow. Happy birthday. Thank you. You're welcome. How old were you being?

"independence day" Discussed on Life in the Son

"Welcome back to another episode of life in the sun. I got good news and I got bad news. Do you want the good news or the bad news first? The bad news first and then the good news cuz cuz why, because when you hear in the mad cow disease first, then the good news will make you feel better after the bad news. Are you trying to play psychology with me off? No, no. Okay. Bad news first The bad news first, what was the bad news? I don't remember that. I wouldn't. Well, bad news first and there is no bad news, I guess. That is the bad news. Well, that's a good news. Well, then I don't have anything more to report them know. Okay, here it is. Another good news is, we're just going to have high and biases in today because it's Fourth of July, you know, it's kind of dependence day. It is Independence Day. It is and, you know, I learned some really cool stuff about independence day today today to take off all righty, then too much had no. So anyway, what I learned today about Independence Day or about some people on Independence Day was people like James Patterson and, you know, a few other states men of that time who were, you know, really a big part of Waging War against England. They, they do expected. Well, actually, they thought that July 2nd shouldn't be Independence Day. And why is that? Whether it's actually when the independence Declaration was signed and they thought it that should be the day. Of independent, but if you look at all the history you know that it was it was signed but it was ratified on the 4th, okay, but James Madison and and Thomas Jefferson who were actually political Rivals. Believe it or not, they butted heads quite frequently off but they and, you know, after their political days, which was not very much left in their lives. They actually became acquaintances. This is if you would, but these men thought that July 2nd should be Independence Day and not, or should be celebrated on July 2nd, not on the 4th and oddly enough. Both of those men died off. On July 4th, fifty years. After this all came to be in that crazy. That is crazy, like, died on the same day off. Now, here's something else I found out now. You know, why we had to declare independence from England. Right. Right. I mean, you know, all the reasons why everybody knows taxation without representation, but there was a lot more to it, than that. The bottom line is King. George was very, very heavy-handed, if you woke up, and he was taxing the colonies so badly, because make anything and it went against what everybody who came here planned to do with King, George just wanted extra territory, and the people who were here, wanted Freedom. So the Tyrant King George when he got his fan off. Handed to him in the war of independence. After that, the 13 colonies would have mocked funerals for King, George every year for Independence, long. Are you guys? Yes. Yes. It is. It's very funny. But, anyway, believe it or not. You may depend or end up paying a celebrations and Fourth of July celebrations, whatever you want to call it. And we weren't the first country to have Independence, but these things been going on since two thousand BC, believe it or not, I didn't know that firecrackers 200 BC who taught. And you know, after after we won the war against England, you know, the first real ceremony for Independence, you know, they had gunships out, you know, on the Eastern Seaboard. And they did a 13 gun salute. Or one shot for every one of the independent colonies here in the United States. And there were there's a whole lot of things that went on like that. And I would go into a job, but I'm sure I'm sure these pie listeners really don't want to listen too long denied and besides it is Independence Day, right? It is Independence Day. It is independence. And there's a lot of fireworks last night too. When there was I saw something out there. A minute ago is like from every direction, east west, north south as all powers going off everywhere. I hope nobody catches any barns on fire this year and launches any bottle rockets in the wrong direction. I, you know what I mean? And if you do anything like my sister and I did, when we were kids, we would stand at the end of the street and shoot bottle rockets at each other and said, well I did, I did shoot a bottle rocket and bounced off the ground and caught her hair on fire, which is really kind of a surprise. It wasn't supposed to do that. I'm always saying that. So that you'll be careful with your bottle rocket, know, me? And my sister don't shoot bottle rockets at each other anymore. But anyway, be saved for the recipe. Of the holiday. Some people are going to be I guess out of school off work, whatever tomorrow. So be careful what ever? Watch yourself out on the roads. Don't doubt they're acting crazy. Don't have any open containers. Matter of fact, stay home be safe that way tomorrow when we wake up, hopefully everybody will be with us in tact and we won't have any sad stories to tell tomorrow because we don't quite sad stories. Let's keep everybody safe. And one more thing off before we announced that Tuesdays podcast, might might be just a tad late. I don't know yet, I'm working on it but we'll see what happens. I did want to make sure everybody kind of happy Fourth of July and Tomorrow is July 5th, which just happens to be Laura beavers. Fifth birthday month, and we are so proud of our little girls know you did. I didn't happy birthday and not tomorrow. Happy birthday. Thank you. You're welcome. How old were you being? Oh, that's rude. I'm not supposed to ask that Emma. She's going to tell people. I'm robbing the cradle, but don't listen to that, dog. I'm not ashamed. She's not ashamed. I didn't ask, but you can tell. Wow,.

"Supposedly while helped push back on those. I saw one person push back on. I thought they were quite convincing but people have fishing back. They haven't pushing back. It does kind of both. i think it's a plausible skepticism against those skeptics. Because i think that you know you. I guess you kind of i mean we dive into this but you kind of have to assume the people that are going like yet. We don't know what that is are familiar with the boca effect. And would be able to. Debunk it before. It got very far especially if they're in the military you see. That's what i'm sure. I be more. I think photographer show the ones to have that conversation. I think you're in the military. You're still you're in fact you're more tree in to say whatever you i think you're more i don't yeah. I not convinced by that argument. That if you're a military fighter pilot you'll be aware of the knights of camera illusions. Maybe a single person. But i i don't know about everyone getting together and being like yeah. That doesn't make any sense in none of them being like maybe we should talk to someone. Who's a photographer like. It just seems not very plausible that they wouldn't reach out yes. Well that's that's the kiss i. I'm surprised at that. Like that's where i go. Okay there must be because yeah they haven't the even the report which you've read and read is doesn't kind of only says that there's one that they are confident. They have an explanation for and most of them. They still don't knew for sure. E- exactly yeah. We're gonna try to find a summary of it and there certain okay. Isd real but the no no. That's totally right. Yeah that's exactly the the report has come out. And that's the big difference between this episode and the previous episode. Where obviously everybody was like. All this is going to be huge and then other people were like this is going to be very disappointing and i would say it's like exactly what everyone should have expected. It's nine pages of people being like yet. There's the stigma around it. We're collecting more data. We're collecting it between two thousand four and two thousand twenty. I think or something like that and are certain incidences in the report. That are pretty wild sounding to me but at the same time. They're doing the thing that any report like. This would do which is go. Please give more money. And we'll tell you and i love that. I think absolutely if you're if you're good at something never do it for free. And apparently they're good at being like we don't know and i think that's a great way to to get to get money just being like this is his beat if you if your bottles something for free. We don't know we haven't. We need more data. We get more information. We need turns out these unidentified now. So here's where i'm at. Currently i've watched a few documentaries since this thing has happened. And that's always a fun way to go down crazy wormhole because documentaries are like i would argue one of the least trustworthy sources of any information you could possibly get. I watched this one dude called mirage men. Have you heard of this. No oh man okay. Well it's free on youtube for people who want to see it. It's about this. Dude named richard doty. Who worked for the government and he was a trained liar. He was a train. Spreader of disinformation now. This has been this part. I guess is true. He is proven that he worked for the government and he over. The course of a little bit of time was found. This guy where he was stationed. Who was outside of it. He was a good. You know hearted smart Inventor sort of eccentric guy who really really believe in. Ufo's and really believed that they were happening. He started intercepting. Communications from military base. Can't do that. that's very that's a no no so what they did was they or he did rather they. He somehow told this person that yeah. There's ufo's absolutely yeah. Oh you got you better look out. And actually you'd better keep tracking this stuff. And they kinda wanted to see what info he had info. He was getting from the military base. They were essentially using him. The guy started to become as a result more and more obsessed with the ufo phenomenon which is other aspect of this that i think is very captivating. It has a tendency to suck people in like a wormhole and you see that happen. And i sensed it and been like all right. Take a break. Go sit down. Basically and this guy went. He killed himself basically destroyed his life and the government played a hand in because they were feeding him information they would put hubcaps and different places. And take pictures. You know you see what was their purpose this again. The he explains it. And it's sort of like spreading disinformation. The theories at spreading disinformation about. Ufo's would keep the guy off the actual truth quote unquote that the government had prototypes and was doing test runs with different things. And that's what he was saying. Now i have a little conspiracy theory that we could get into later to justice why they did that as a double bluff a w. exactly and i think it was a triple bluff this now we're in the ripple bluff and so but this this whole thing is basically about this guy who now says..

"Writing episodes and really familiarizing myself with how to do a podcast. Working on my speaking working on finding the right microphone all that sort of good stuff before. I started the hyde cast by releasing episode one in two thousand seventeen. So i i really started this whole project in early two thousand sixty just a little tidbit on on my back story for those of you. Who are interested. Some of you have asked where this podcast is going in. As i said we're in seventeen seventy nine now. We have to get to seventeen eighty three. And i'll be lucky if i can cover two years of the war in one calendar year in fifty two weekly episodes so we're probably looking at another two or three years before we reach the end of the war whether i go beyond that. I'm still kind of undecided. I might want to talk about the post war years a little bit. But i probably won't go into as much detail as i do about the war years Some of you remember. Very beginning of my podcast. I covered things like the french and indian war. The prewar protests that. I may have a league done. You know maybe six for ten episodes that covered an entire year. So i made you something like that in the postwar years. We'll talk about the struggles. Under the articles of confederation the the events leading up to the constitution so there may be a little bit of time after we get to the end of the war right. Continue on guess. I'll just have to see where we are but anyway Ends i said i've always trying new things. This was an experiment today. Do a live episode. I appreciate anyone who stuck with me now for the hour and forty minutes that we've been on the air. I am getting ready to sign off. But i do appreciate it. I hope you'll have a wonderful independence. Day and i will hopefully be able to put up a recording of this for anyone who has missed it. Have a wonderful independence day to all of you. And i look forward to seeing you next week on. The american revolution podcast..

"By any thinking man in all north america the contrary that it is the art wish of the warmest advocates for liberty that peace and tranquility upon constitutional grounds may be restored and the horrors of civil discord. Prevent it. now you might say that was just one delegates position maybe not one of the hardliners but i should mention that the delegate who wrote that was none other than george washington of virginia so the first congress there was really no interest in independence and they said several titians the king parliament. If you look at the the words used in a petition. It's very clear that they were trying to resolve this problem in a peaceful way while still getting what they needed out of it. The end of the petition. They they have the following couple of senses. We therefore most earnestly beseech your majesty that your royal authority and interposition may be used for our relief and that a gracious answer may be given to this petition. That your majesty may enjoy every felicity through a long and glorious reign loyal unhappy subjects that your descendants may inherit your prosperity and in minions till time shelby a war and always will be our sincere and fervent prayer that does not sound like a group of men who are ready to break with the king. The first continental congress i said wanted restoration of their colonial rights and was looking to the king to be the arbiter with haro woman to resolve this problem. Continental congress disbanded in late fall. Seventeen seventy four in left plans to meet again for a second congress it may. They were basically hoping by that time to get a response from london to see what next steps might be needed. If the lended completely agree to all their requests of course by the time the second continental congress met in may seventeen seventy five lexington concord had already put the continent at war so when the delegates arrived back in philadelphia sexually on a war footing and kind of behind the eight ball trying to figure out what steps they could take next to stop this. It really got crazy out of hand. The delegates from new england were at the point where they really thought this is war. We've got to fight the war. But they had worry about the mid atlantic states and the southern state colonies not states yet worrying about them being on board with all this in that they would put up a united front so that was the big fight of the early part of the second continental congress in seventeen seventy five. Many congress still hopes that they can resolve this peacefully. They passed a yet another petition. Hoping that the king would still interpose himself and that they could resolve this without becoming full blown. Treason seventeen seventy five though. This really began to change many credit. Thomas paine who released a pamphlet called commonsense near the end of the year this pamphlet which very widely read very popular basically made the argument for independence saying that a tiny island should not be able rule entire continent the size of the to just didn't make sense and secondly it was a direct attack on monarchy. Why do you guys get to make the rules. Just because your dad got to make a roast before that's no way to run a government so these events had a big impact but even the fact that they were now at war over in a few radicals are calling for independence probably did not move the mass majority of the population to favour independence and probably not even the majority of delegates at the second continental congress. What really changed. It was the next actions of king george. The third king george. The third received this final petition. From the second continental congress and rejected out of hand came from an illegal body. We're not going to respect it. He saw what was happening. In massachusetts lexington concord. The siege of boston was going on but this time as outright rebellion against his authority and again cannot tolerate or negotiate with rebellion. It requires firm military action and once we put down this rebellion. Then we can talk about being nice and you guys receive king's mercy by until this war rebellion and it had to be dealt with such. He gave a speech to the opening parliament. Fall of seventeen seventy five outlining this. And when word of that got back to america at the end of seventeen seventy five in early seventeen seventy six. They realized that there was not going to be a negotiated solution to this dispute. That they could either surrender and pray to the king for mercy or they could declare independence. Those were really the only two options that the delegates saw by this time by early. Seventeen seventy six. Many the delegates who had attended the continental congress in who were against independence as saw the writing on the wall. They saw that one was calling the congress in illegal body and that when they crush this rebellion could very well be that members of that illegal body would be hanged as the leaders of the rebellion so many leaders who opposed independence left congress and many of them were loyalists. Joseph galloway a great example of this who ended up supporting the british layer of the war that we're over. Many moderates some moderates and radicals at this point The radicals were ready to declare independence. Most of new england was on or all that many of the southern commies whereas well the moderates however were not moderates still hoped against hope that they might be able to come to some negotiated solution. And as i said we saw the olive branch petition. Being sent out. But nothing would come with that. So by this point where up to may seventeen seventy six couple months before the declaration. John adams had been attempting to push through an independence resolution. He i tried this in may in a kind of a sneaky way. They wanted to pass a resolution because most of the colonial governments in the colonies had been forced to leave. The colonial governments had governors had either been taken prisoner or work sitting on ships off the coast or had returned to london so there was no opportunity colonial government so adam scott congress to pass a relatively land statement that basically said if you don't have a working government we need to create a temporary ones so that we can continue to not descend into chaos and operate like a civilized state official wording was where no government sufficient to the exigencies of their affairs have been hitherto establish to adopt such government s shot in the opinion of the representatives of the people best conducive to the happiness and safety of their constituents in particular in america general. Okay so basically we want to create a workable government that keeps people happy. Congress passed that then. A few days afterward adams pattern the preamble to the resolution which nobody had yet seen the preamble said whereas his britannic majesty in conjunction with the lord's in comments of great britain has by act of parliament excluded the inhabitants of these united colonies from the protection of the crown and whereas no answer whatever to the humble petition of the colonies for redress of grievances and reconciliation. Great britain has been were is likely to be given but the whole force of that kingdom either.

"You know. it's ridiculous that they bring brent spiner back. That man was dead at man was dead and he's brutal. Yeah and you know that's the thing you know the last one everyone was living really authentically in the characters here. You've got no one living in any kind of character because a lot of these characters don't really have characters anymore you know. They wrote the part to be more of a jeff. Goldblum person than david actually was originally. So you end up with a lot. More sort of goldblum is of. Them's in the character. That really make him feel not at all like a progression of the character that we had from the first movie it feels like he's doing an impersonation of his character in the first one. Yeah and this whole movie has that sense of doing a bad impression of the first one essentially even giving bill pullman a speech again. Yeah we didn't need the speech again. No and you like honestly. Eighty five percent of this movie is just people yelling at each other and bunkers and again it's so like it's so darkly blue in its lung it just becomes so monotonous and drab and again it's like and also with the whole bunker fiasco like everything they're always looking at these like holographic like panels and screens and it all looks so flat and bland and yeah this this movie at a huge budget but that stuff does not look good. I think that the spectacle effects look pretty solid but like everything inside. The bunkers looked so green screen. Yeah it had a an estimated budget of a hundred sixty five million. Yeah that's embarrassing. Yeah no go ahead and it was. It was supposed to also be the launching ship of like two or three more sequels so they were like really committing big on this thing. Yeah i don't. I don't think that worked really. You don't think it paid off you. Don't think the gamble worked know and also one thing in terms of rolling emirates style in this while i'm always even up like nowadays. I'm up for good alien invasion movie his style in this and the the special effects like we've seen this kind of movie and a a lot of might be inspired by the first one but in the two decades since we've seen movies so similar to that do it much better and so like just because he can throw in these huge special effects like we've seen that time and time again over the years and most of the time it's more interesting than it is in this like you know the whole gravity thing were the city will come up and then come down like we we you know. That's kind of tired at this point. And so while they are the effects may look good in in feary. they're not very impactful. No not at all and they also have the classic issue of you know when you when you do too much. You know as when you do as much digitally as they did. It starts to to feel unreal. You know you start zap the danger out of so many of the scenarios when it's just constantly this massive visual extravaganza perpetually visual things happening visual effects. You know just everywhere. Yeah i mean. I do like the the final fight with the queen It's all right. I don't mind that and i kinda liked the look of the alien And so that's the third act. Might be one of the better parts about and i do like even though it's not all that long i do like the the scene of them of the ship going over earth and being so huge you know i i like the look of that and yeah it's just you know again. It's something that i feel. No one really asked for and it feels feels that way. It made a little money. I think it kinda flopped though In the long run just shy of four hundred million okay so not. That in itself is embarrassing them. That many people went to see this. But like it's yeah like. I feel like i watched it out of obligation. You know i liked the first one. I guess i'll watch this. Yeah like like. I've seen it you know and but i mean even so there are parts of it i i like and you know it's not there's nothing like offensively wrong with it. It's just that it's so underwhelming yen and just half baked concepts perpetually at every. Turn the the aliens that are apparently so powerful that they're the only things that these aliens fear but they are so weak that they got wiped out except for one left. Who now has weapons and technology and skill so powerful that he's teaching other aliens how to fight back and he's now coming to take earthlings to this planet to teach us how to kill them. If your so powerful. Why did you get wiped out. Furthermore why didn't you bring anyone else. Why is your strategy not come. Bring a whole attack force with you help. Turn the tide then then take people. Why did you just come as an envelope. That maybe didn't even speak english..

"Came out. Yeah twenty years after the original. And you know. Paul had you seen this. Yeah prior okay. So i yeah So and i guess this this is the the fifth anniversary then of the movie. This year is yeah if it was so yeah. I saw five years ago in Grauman's chinese theater. So i saw this big dumb movie just as as you could see it. And it's so much dumber than the first movie which aren't it is truly still m- stupid compared to the first movie like i i enjoy watch. I enjoyed watching this movie. The first time i saw. And not in the sense of like oh. This is a good movie. I was blown away by the sheer audacity of this movie. The first time i saw it. It's pretty belligerent. And that's that's sort of how i felt about it the first time that i saw it and then i watched it again later. One time on on video. And then i i watched it again. Recently i watched it yesterday and it was. It was even dumber than i remembered it. Being it was even dumber than i remembered it being. It was remarkable at got dumber with age. Yeah i i. i didn't see this in theaters. Mercifully a Sought couple years after it came out with had no real interest in saying it. I mean it's one of those sequels. I mean no movie necessarily needs a sequel but many can get away with doing a sequel. If the story is really good this has none of that if no one needed it no one asked for it and so they just made it purely again for you know the most shallow of reasons and what i was saying about the first one where rolling emerick doesn't take himself too seriously. This movie i mean while there are jokes in it the look is so dark it feels totally much darker and a going against the first one he treats the characters who were brought back as these precious like beloved characters who needs to call back to and like you know the similar lines or whatever it may be like. I don't think anybody gives us shit like like while. Sure it's always nice to have certain characters brought back. Maybe say certain things that remind you of the i. It's like i dunno seeing dressing world fallen kingdom in a way. Yeah all just call backs. And i don't care about that. I just want to see a new story. And so it's it's not like a zero five or anything like that like there are stole certain moments of spectacle that i think are good and and i enjoy that but like the cast. I really like maika monroe. She's kinda wasted in this. I think she's pretty good though and a lot of things she's probably my favorite liam hemsworth like like. I don't mind chris hemsworth. I like him a store and i like him and like rush and in the heart of the sea. Paul i know i know you feel the same about that one but he i put him in the in the same boat as not clint eastwood. Who's the son of. Clint eastwood's scott scott eastwood. While i understand hollywood casting people who are just attractive. I can accept that there there. He and scott are like the most vanilla land actors like liam hemsworth. His best work is probably the hunger games but he. I've never seen him change his face. Why he's always he always has that same sort of stupid dobie look on his face. Yeah he's just so nothing against them personally. He's just so vanilla all the time and he's he's not very good and like jeff goldblum. He's fine he he doesn't have a whole lot to do nor does anyone really so i feel like i'm hating on the movie a lot so watching it. It's not very good. I wasn't hating myself but it's just something that nobody needed. Really and i feel roland roland. Emerick actually came out and said later it. Maybe wasn't the best idea to do. A sequel to this war or to the to the original. Yeah there's i don't know it's not very good. Well unlike you know the last one had a good amount of story stretched over two hours and twenty some odd minutes. This thing is two hours and it is jam. Packed is jam packed with stuff happening. Not necessarily plot but just stuff happening. You know. you've got all the stuff of the three young kids having their things. You've got vivica fox in the hospital. We've got the president. We've got the military guy who ends up becoming the president. We've got the nerd friend and his crush on the fighter pilot who's also related to the captain of the moon station. We bring back rents. Spiner we do judd hirsch in the kids travel across country lake. This movie is just to the gills full and yet nothing happens in this movie beyond alien stuff The geography of this movie is just completely all over the place in unclear like this is just. It's a dumb move and like remember in the last independence day. How how jeff goldblum had to figure out the code and learned that it was almost running off of a software and that they could essentially hack that os and give it a computer virus. And that's what gave us the edge here. Their technology has not advanced but also good enough that some of our alien technology weapons can't penetrate. There's and then the way that they end up sort of you know defeating the the queen alien in large part is because liam hemsworth makes ship. Go fast and like this. Whole movie is just inescapably dumber on every conceivable level in the last one and it does the classic issue of of telling me about a story. That happened somewhere else or something else that i go. Why wasn't that the movie that i got because i heard about how like people in africa were having a completely different of warfare with the aliens than the rest of the world was apparently having and i was like. Where's this movie tip. They've got a lot of alien skulls. I would much rather watch you know. Sort of predator war kind of thing than than whatever this movie is..

"Or we now have with us at ted johnson. A senior fellow at the brennan center Former us navy commander of former speechwriter to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and the author of the new book win. The stars begin to fall over coming racism and renewing the promise of america ted. Welcome to skulduggery e. so much for having me. I'm really excited to be here. And we are excited to have you. On the day of the first national holiday of juneteenth which was signed thursday into law by president biden. I'm give us your thoughts on juneteenth being a national holiday and whether it begins the process or continues the process of addressing many of the issues. You raise about america's painful past. Yeah it's a. It's a great question. And i'll be honest with you. I'm still digesting the last few days i mean it is frankly remarkable to me that the senate unanimously passed this act and that only fourteen people voted against it in the house and then it becomes law yesterday with buying signs it on the whole. I think it's a good move for the country. I think you can look at the title of the act. It's called june team national independence day. Act as a way of associating june teens with july fourth To suggest that this is not a black holiday but this is a holiday for the nation to recognize that the independence it declared on july fourth. Seventeen seventy six wasn't really complete until after the civil war until word of the emancipation. Proclamation had trickle down and until really sort of signals the thirteenth fourteenth and fifteenth amendments that tries to undo a lot of things that have been done in the for several decades of the country's life So i'm glad We are a nation that likes. It's ritual we are nation that likes our services and our commemorations. And for that i think a having a national holiday provides a focal point for the more of the nation to ask. What exactly is juneteenth again in. Weiser important in. How's it consistent with our The narrative we tell ourselves about ourselves for that. I think it's good. But here's here's the last bit. I'll say Some of this feels really performative to me at the same time we're having discussions about the history. We're going to teach our children. Sixty nineteen project verse. Seventeen seventy six commission the same time we're talking about. The kind of theories were going to ban from public schools in the critical race theory. This unwillingness to reckon with our the fullness of our history coupled with the bipartisan nearly unanimous support for june team That's attention that i think characterizes the quandary our nation has wrestled with since inception. Were you surprised at all about how quickly this move through congress. I am absolutely and again the activism behind this becoming a holiday. Both i in the state of texas internationally is is It has a long long trail. But i'm surprised that three weeks ago. I don't know that i'd heard people were coin to consider. Congress was going to consider this and so for. It's here to here on monday. Tuesday that the sentiment that the senate didn't filibuster which had happened in the previous year but passed it was was amazing. But here's the other thing If you look at donald trump's appeal to black voters last year before the presidential election of one of the tenets in his platform was to make june teens. A federal holiday this was in trump's rhetoric Clan for is fueled by. I did not know that. Yes pretty interesting. Yeah so so. That's you know for all of the concerns that republican party members have about the thumb trump is putting on their scale in terms of primaries. Congressional races etcetera. They had top cover To support this because it was in the trump appeal to black voters So in this way it wasn't politically risky. It was a way of countering the narrative that the republican party is racist or trying to suppress the votes of black people And so in this way it was actually politically expedient not to contest. The establishment of juneteenth doesn't national holiday so juneteenth itself the original juneteenth back in eighteen. Sixty five is a celebration. That has a an undercurrent of sadness to obviously. I mean it's not a you know there's there's no way you can just celebrate juneteenth. You know it's not an unalloyed moment of glee and happiness in american history. And what's so strange is. The passage of juneteenth is a national holiday today. Also has this undercurrent. It's not an annella wide great thing that was done. It's and it's something that you mentioned when you first answered mike about The the undercurrents of backlash the sixteen. Nineteen project to critical race. Theory that we're experiencing today you know i. I was doing a little bit of research before we spoke to at least twenty states that have introduced some sort of Legislation to ban teaching critical race. Theory i think it's been passed so far in maybe upwards of six states or something like this. What is this backlash against critical race theory. I mean maybe we should begin with what is critical race. Theory actually versus. What is it in the In the kind of the backlash that's going on right now so the bumper sticker public rhetoric version occur Were hearing now Is that critical race. Theory says america is racist than white people are bad and of course that's not accurate but in when you put it in those terms caricatured that way. It's really easy to divide the public. The electorate and both sides can leverage that misinformation to their political advantage in. That's why there's so much currency if you're a member of a party that is increasingly white increasingly rural increasingly Sort of resenting. The changing america then caricaturing critical race theory or the sixteen nineteen for that matter as this is a nation trying to say that your forefathers were evil people and now it's time to get rid of all of the history all of the contributions they made the country and think about something different. What creek race theory actually says is that our nation is structured in a way where those who are considered whites have more advantages and privileges than those who aren't and that the structures are of our society. Reinforce that privilege now. We can debate about the term white privilege..

"Twenty fifth. The day the British finally left America was on November twenty, fifth, eighteen, eighty three, if there was a point history, which is an analogy to the transition, which the experienced in one, thousand, nine, hundred seven, it would be this day at noon on November twenty, fifth, eighteen, hundred, seventeen, eighty, three in New, York City Sir Guy Carleton. The last British commander of the former thirteen British colonies gave the order to evacuate the sound of the cannon. All the British flags were taken down in American flags were raised when the blast Leverett flag was removed George Washington and his troops entered the town and triumph marching from the northern tip of Manhattan. All the way down to what is today battery Park. Even though it really isn't celebrated anymore, November twenty fifth is still recognized as evacuation day in new. York City every year. Even though the war was won, the treaty was signed, and the British troops are gone. There was still one more thing. Needed to formally put a bow on the conflict. Net happened on January fourteenth. If. There's a definitive date. We could absolutely positively point to where we can say that. The struggle for independence was over. It was January fourteenth seventeen, eighty four on this date, the continental Congress assembled in Annapolis Maryland ratified the Treaty of Paris, which once and for all put an end to the American revolution. This Day is still celebrated as ratification day in Maryland on January fourteenth every year. So as you can see nailing down one day for American independence really isn't that easy. There are several days which are still celebrated around the country which relate to American independence patriots. Day Evacuation, day Yorktown Day and ratification day all celebrate different aspects of the same thing American independence, a process which took almost nine years from start to finish.

"August second. Pot approval of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July fourth. It was official. It wasn't necessary for any of the delegates to sign their name to it any more than it's necessary for members of Congress to physically scribble their signature on every law they signed signing. The document was more like signing a public petition. The physical copy of the Declaration of Independence, which most Americans are familiar with sits in the National Archives in Washington DC and has the signatures a fifty six people on it. There's a great. Deal of debate amongst historians as to win, the document was signed Thomas Jefferson and some others were adamant that he signed the document on July fourth, however, several designers weren't in Philadelphia on that date, and some had not even been members of the Continental Congress July fourth on August second seventeen, seventy six is the date which most members of the Continental Congress signed the document, or at least the last of them did depending on how much weight you put into the signing. August second could be considered the final date which independence was declared. As. I mentioned above declaring independence is all well and good, but it doesn't really mean anything. If your land is occupied by enemy forces at the time of the resolution and declaration of independence. British controlled the largest city in the country. New York and large swath of the United States America wasn't really independent yet. November sixteenth. If you read up on the subject of what makes a country country, and this might be a later episode. One of the themes is always. Is Recognition. By other countries. Using, this modern definition of recognition, the very first time, a foreign power recognized an independent United States occurred November sixteenth, seventeen, seventy, six, when the ship Andrew Doria flying under the continental colors of the United States received a thirteen gun salute from the Dutch island of Saint you stay in the Caribbean. It became known as the I salute, and you can find a commemoration of it on the island today, in fact.

"For a nation to achieve independence is no small thing. In the twentieth century, many former colonies achieved their independence through mostly peaceful means with definitive negotiated day where the handoff occurred. We're the country officially became independent for example on August. Fifteenth Nineteen. Forty. Seven in became independent, the process was arranged in advance on August fourteenth, nineteen, Forty, seven at eleven fifty, nine PM, the British flag was lowered, and at twelve one a. m. on August fifteenth. The Indian flag was raised, and just like that India became independent. By the way realize that is a gross simplification of the process of Indian independence, and the partition of India and Pakistan, but I will leave that for another episode. When the United States became independent colonies, breaking away from their mother. Country wasn't yet a thing. It was an extremely message drawn out process took years. There was no flag ceremony, and in fact, it wasn't even a single governable colony involved. There were thirteen. Because the process took so long. Pinpointing date for American independence isn't as cut and dry as it might be. Further countries, also declaring independence isn't the same thing as actually being independent, and if you doubt me, try declaring independence for your house from the country. Live in and tell me how that goes, so here are some possible dates for when we could and should be celebrating American independence. April nineteenth. April one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seventeen, seventy, five was the date when the whole process of independence started. This was the date of sharp heard around the world on April. Nineteenth British soldiers set out to confiscate weapons in Concord Massachusetts and the Americans fought back in the first battles of the revolutionary war. The battles of Lexington and concord to be honest were more like skirmishes, but we'll stick with the nomenclature for now. This was the line in the sand from which there was no turning back. There have been protests like the Boston Tea Party before this point, but this is where the rubber hit. The road and things got violent and blood was spilled. The starting point of the whole process is as good a point of any. If you wanted to pick a day to celebrate American independence, in fact, this is a holiday in several states called Patriots, day Massachusetts. Maine Wisconsin Connecticut and North Dakota. All Have Patriots Day as an official holiday. July.

"Out two years before Independence Day. which would be another one that would be target was done by the the entire creative team was the same from Stargate, and actually one at least one stargate actor appears in Independent. Yeah. But stargate was an independence. Day were both scored by David Arnold and he was a a a Newbie to scoring movies back in the nineties, and his soundtracks were different I. Mean Up until then we'd had a lot of John Williams with Star Wars and and I think just about every major blockbuster until the nineties was scored by John Williams. So. And it was just neat to get a different feel for for music and David Arnold had that Denver feel of course. As he progressed. Kind of the way John Williams. So every score kind of sounded savings the previous score, but I really loved Independence Day and Stargate.

"Blood and small pieces of matter already being scoured by aunts who let the dogs out finally ends. It's quiet out lying in bed that night next to my dog Carter. I'm left alone to replay the day in my head. Who let the dogs out has been bouncing around my brain on. Repeat since Lindsey and I left the late this afternoon not the whole song just the first line over and over my hillbilly neighbors across the street. Never stop partying this afternoon. It's still counting. And there's a lot more people there. Muffled music and bottle rockets have been cutting through my shut window for the last half hour. Carter and I are both annoyed. He's practically laying on top trembling. He doesn't like fireworks. And truthfully well actually not seeing what I saw today. It's safe to say that I completely underestimated the scariness of fireworks and explosives. A new country. Songs starts across the street followed by the sound of a string of bottle rockets. Launching into the sky with the whistle. I giggle myself remembering the look on. Lindsey's face when I asked her about Mike Stevens. Oh my God. I can't wait to tell everyone the Mikey Stephen. Stories and urban legend and. I really can't wait to tell everyone about Joanne par. My friends on the cross country team won't believe it. I turn off my lamp on the in table. Next to my bed and snuggled up next to Carter with my eyes closed thumb from thumb again. It's so persistent. It's nauseating instead of getting angry though like earlier in the day delaying my sleep even further. I just imagine how satisfying it would be here. One large explosion across the street followed by my dad barging into my room for the third time today to tell me that our neighbors and their party guests were blown to pieces all over their front yard and carport. I'm imagining a blood. Soaked Jeff Gordon Flag flapping in the Wind Joanne's tiny frame covered by a sheet flashes into my brain.

"Nights and weekends to make removals and work visitations. Meanwhile my mom picks me up at three o'clock every day so I can go home and practice drums and play with my dog. That's a pretty grabby schedule next to that every other night every other weekend shit something know while we're on the subject of work schedules. The holidays. Most funeral homes. Don't open up on Major Bank Holidays. Directors and staffers still on call but since the cemeteries aren't open there isn't much we can do except make removals and in bomb. I suppose you could have a visitation on independence day but most people choose not to. I mean who wants to go see a dead body in a bunch of crying people on a national holiday. A national holiday that synonymous with getting hammered and blowing. Shit up outside. I just think turnout would be kind of a drag unless we could figure out a way to celebrate and more and at the same time perhaps we strapped GRANDPA to a rocket or pack his casket with explosives. That could be interesting. I'm sure someone somewhere does it. But we down so we get days like today Independence Day off to rest and relax and nap or attempt to now. The thump of my neighbors music keeps getting louder. I finally opened my eyes. I try to reach from where I'm laying to close the window behind my head so I can go back to sleep in silence but it's too late when Carter felt the bed move. His tail immediately began wagging and within two point three seconds he was standing over me. Licking MY GROGGY. Grumpy face awake. Carter's tongue slides through my lips and grazes the back of my molars. What the FUCK DUDE. I push him off a me. I slide the window shut and the base dips in volume. I flip over on my side away from Carter and closed my eyes a feel my head neck start melting two my pillow. My Dad walks into my room banging the door against the stopped to get my attention. Get up buck. There's a police call at the lake. Lindsey will be here in ten minutes. My Dad notices my teenage five o'clock shadow and says you need to shave. He points toward the bathroom confused as say but dad. I'M NOT ON CALL MY DAD scarfs. Finding it amusing that I think I have a say in the matter. You're on call today bud. He leaves my room and walks down the hallway. I'm a little too groggy to put up a fight and honestly I'm kind of stuck that I have something to do now since my neighbors aren't making it easy to sleep. Plus it's a police call at the lake. Color me intrigued. I bet it's a drowning or like some sort of boating accident. This realization perks me up a bit. Listen it's not that I want bad things to happen to people but if I'm getting called out to do something I want to see something I've never seen before. Is that too much to ask everyone else? The funeral home has these cool and bizarre stories. I got nothing just stories of little old. Grandmas and grandpas surrounded by their loved. Ones being sent off toe wherever it is. We go when we die either way. This is more interesting than what I had planned for this afternoon. Which was nothing I roll out of bed and head to the bathroom. Come on Cardi. Three minutes one dull to blade razor and four fairly superficial cuts on my face and neck. Later I was covered in tiny pieces of toilet paper. Waiting for Lindsey to pull up in the van sitting in an oversized Brown leather wingback chair in my parents living room. I checked to make sure one of the dangling pieces of toilet paper I used to cover the cut on. My Adam's apple is still there. I feel as section of non blood soaked paper. Brush against my fingertip. I feel relieved knowing that I'm not bleeding all over the collar of my White Express. Men's dress shirt. I'm wearing a charcoal suit of the same. Make as the shirt my tie belt and shoes nothing extraordinary. But they're tasteful and appropriate for the weather. Carter's sitting on the floor staring at me from the other side of the room. Every time I break my gaze from the window to look in him. He wags his tail frantically but still pressed firmly against the floor. He's looking at me with the saddest is knowing he can't come sit on my lap. Carter is the greatest dog I've ever had but I swear to God if I even look at him from across the room in a suit or dress clothes I'll be covered in fine white yellow lab hair and then I'll be forced to spend four or five minutes frustrated sticky rolling myself to mostly no avail. My Dad pops his head and looks like He. Nick yourself a couple times you know what this call is dead. No not really. Lindsey knows where you're going. How Fun Carter? I hear Lindsey pull up at the same time. He runs to the door while I quietly stand up chuck for dog hair and hastily sneak out the garage door walk. Carter's still watching out the front alright. No dog hair walking up to the van. I can hear the album version of wolf man's brother by fish through the door. Lindsay's always listening to fish. It's kind of awesome but it can get a little annoying when we're listening to our third eighteen minute long version. A moment of the day I smile and wave while simultaneously remembering to peel three of the pieces of blood so toilet paper off my cheek and Chin the Khatamai Adam's apple hasn't cluttered up yet. I better leave it on a little longer. Lindsey turns down the music when she sees me the door. I get in. Were on our way now. Now that I'm actually more awake and in a moving vehicle. I'm actually pretty excited about going on this call. I got my feet wet a couple years ago on my first real police call the foreign exchange students stab seventy seven times in front of the hot and fresh now. Every time. I hear the phrase police call. I get nervously excited because I might see something new something brutal and disgusting but equally fascinating I think Lindsay can tell him in a good mood as we pull out of my neighborhood. She slaps my shoulder and points at my neighbor's house. You know the neighbors with the Jeff Gordon flag and the terrible country music. That kept me from my nap. Check out those Bubbas. She says snickering. We see to middle aged man with ball caps and beer bellies sitting in folding chairs next to a cooler and their dirt and gravel driveway sitting beside them as about a quarter. Palette of fireworks. They're probably having some sort of fourth of July blow out later as we pass. I think about how loud that Palette of fireworks. Exploding all at once would and then I think about the Mikey Stephen Story. Wonder if Lindsay's familiar with it. Both the men sitting in the driveway wave at us. We pass we choose to ignore them. Hey Lindsay have you ever heard about a kid that blew his finger off with fireworks down by the covered bridge? Mikey Stephen. That's an urban legend. Every town has mikey Stevens.

"All listeners. Every town has their urban legends. Parents telling their kids stories about strangers and cars with Candian other made up tails to instill fear in their children. My parents were no different. Why would they be when I was little? I remember my parents telling me about kids. Being severely injured by fireworks. One in particular stands out little. Mikey Stevens apparently little. Mikey was fucking around with some firecrackers under a bridge and blue. Most of his fingers on his right hand clean off. I don't remember where I was when I heard the Mikey Stephen. Story IN THE CAR BY THE POOL. It doesn't matter. Once I heard the story the jury was in fireworks. Were now something I was afraid of and they would be well into my twenties. That's when I realized how much fun being reckless with fireworks could be regardless the Mikey Stephen. Story left its mark on me and till I met Joanne. Par well picked up Joanne. Par I'll tell you what hearing a story about some careless kid. Losing a couple of fingers doesn't scare me nearly as much. As seeing the back of petite retired pediatrician skull opened up and leaking brains and blood out onto pristine Lee manicured lawn in front of her family and friends seriously. The back of her head was blasted off by some drunk asshole. Playing with a historically accurate replica war cannon. Four houses down Joann was just minding our own business when bang lights out. Joanne's head makes the mikey story seemed cute and trivial in comparison. Sorry Mike a couple of fingers scaring all but Joanne. Par fucked up fireworks forever for me. And maybe she'll do the same for you. My name is grant and these. Are My funeral home. Stories Chapter Thirteen Independence Day brain explorer. It's July fourth. I'm fifteen years old going into my sophomore year of high school. My eyes are closed laying in bed next to my yellow Lab Carter. He's asleep out cold and snoring. I can hear him snort every third or fourth breath. I'm jealous. I had drifted off for several minutes but was brought back to consciousness by the sound of what I can only imagine to be. Four twelve and sub woofers packed into a puny to door. Honda with some sort of body get parked in. Someone's front yard. Broadly specific. I know but there's a reason it's my hillbilly neighbors blasting some toby Keith. They're equally whatever country artists. Whatever the music is. It's persistence nauseating thumb from thumb. Occasionally the sound of Slag Guitar. Some Hee haw lyrics bleed into the muffled Max. It wouldn't bother me as much as they were listening to. Something of musical substance. But they have Jeff Gordon flag hanging in there open carport visible from the road so I doubt they have a copy of Stankonia laying around. I clench my fists out of pure frustration. But I haven't opened my eyes yet. They're still hope. I exhaled deeply. Relax my fist and try to will myself back to sleep? I stayed up a little late last nine blowing up trash cans and other general holiday weekend factory and I didn't get to sleep in today because I wrote in with my dad to check in on the funeral home early this morning seven. Am early. My Dad barged into my room at six thirty waking up Carter and asked me if I'd like to accompany him to the funeral home this morning. How thoughtful I'm just kidding. He actually said we're up. You're not sleeping all day or going to the office. He knew I was up laying in. I can tell he gets a kick out of making me wake up early when I don't have to thankfully I'm not as tired as I could be since I'm not old enough to drive. I'm not on call after hours. I only go and calls if they happen while I'm at work. Simple Home Hospital and nursing home calls. Nothing really to write home about. I did see shotgun suicide. They came in a few weeks ago. That was a trip. I didn't see it at the crime scene though just in the operating room. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I mean it was fucking terrible but it didn't really gross me out. I think I may actually beginning condition for this line of work. It only took two and a half summers not bad fun fact because of my lack of driver's license on the only person working at the funeral home who actually gets nights and weekends off. Oh and holidays to all the other. Employees are trading.
