Today we celebrate...
Well, we CELEBRATE!
We fire up the grill and we put on some burgers and hot dogs, we slice up some watermelon, we show up at that parade and we cheer the local boy scout troop and the veterans that served that we then honor, then we go find our usual place in the park and we watch the fireworks staged to some sermonized jingoistic music.
And we claim that we're doing this for A REASON. We claim that we're doing this because over two hundred years ago a bunch of men got together and said they weren't going to follow the dictates of the dominant and overbearing international superpower, and that we have to remember that or else we'll lose this thing called FREEDOM.
But here's a funny little question... do you REALLY know what FREEDOM is?
Seriously, do you know?
Have you ever sat down and wondered WHAT the concept of FREEDOM means?
I tell you what: you won't hear it from the Fox News crowd! You won't hear it from the trained parrots of talk radio! You won't hear it from the conservative editorials that have decided to waste their time re-printing the Declaration of Independence and pretend to know what it was all about.
You want to know what FREEDOM REALLY MEANS?
I'll tell you. Or better yet, I'll SHOW YOU!
This is an animated video taken from my "Brutally Honest on ShockNet Radio" show from a few years ago. The show was an hour-long and broken into three segments, so you have each part as a separate video.
Watch the video series. THINK about what it means, and then compare that to the BS you hear from Fox News and talk radio. THEN go to your July 4th celebrations and see if other people actually GET what the concept is all about.
And if you like what you see, then be sure to tune in every Monday night at 8pm ET, 7pm CT, for "Brutally Honest - LIVE" on ShockNet Radio!
