Party in the U.S.A.

In honor of our great country's birth, I bring you today a guest post from one of America's biggest fans and most loyal supporters.  An avid follower of local and national politics, a Revolutionary War know-it-all, and a guy who once said that when he retires, he'd like to teach civics to high schoolers -- ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Mr. Brian Pearson (aka my husband) and his Top Five Reasons for Loving Amuuurica!

Happy two hundred and thirty fifth birthday America!  For those of you who don't celebrate America's overall number-oneness the other 364 days of the year, I give you the top 5 reasons that you should be proud to be an American (unless of course you're British, Canadian, or some other silly nationality, in which case I'm sorry, and you might want to look away while I enumerate our awesomeness).

5. While the rest of the world is freaking out about rising food prices, we're busy trying to explain why ours are so low.

4. We've had our fair share of goofy white guys in the Oval Office, but could you imagine if this guy was going to be our king?!

3. Some people think it's a bad thing that we're numero uno in the obesity category, but all those eating skills come in handy.  Just ask American hero, Joey Chestnut.

2. Freedom isn't free, but $357.28 buys you an AK-47.  (Laugh, but you'll be thankful when the Soviets, Chinese, North Koreans invade)

1. There are 35 countries in North and South America, but there is only one group of people known as "Americans."

Here's hoping you have a patriotic, fun, and supremely American Independence Day.

The movie link was crazy. Kind of cool to know.

Although this probably means that your blog is now banned in China.

I think I would maybe be honored to be banned in China? Haha.
