Independence Day, 2018.

Happy 242nd birthday America!
Vinodog 2 (looking a lot like the cute canine-superheroine she is) and I would like to wish all American peeps a very joyous Independence Day.
Before composing this post, I took a quick look at Vinsanity's 'Independence Day' posts all the way back to the first one in 2009.  The overwhelming sentiments in each post are ones of pride and patriotism, both admirable qualities that this particular Englishwoman recognises in most Americans.  Last year's post, however, is still, if not even more, relevant this year.  If anyone living in America right now would prefer to exist under the tyrannical regimes of North Korea, China, Russia or Iran, please, feel free to go and try to live a life of personal liberty in one of those godforsaken countries.  Just sayin'.
God bless the United States of America.  (I'll even, albeit hesitatingly, include California and New York in my humble benediction.)
Oh...and God save the Queen!

VH: You sure are the best.Brit in America (JMO). Of course that goes for Vinodog II.
You made me LOL.
I would like to add that many of America's crazies need to live in Cuba or Venezuela for a year!

Thud: Must say, I'm quite enjoying England's fans singing 'God Save the Queen' in Russia :)

NHW: Thank you.

Yes, you don't have to go very far from the USA to experience totalitarianism. America's critics should go and try it on for size: I'm sure they'll find it a little tight around the gut (and neck).
