Happy 4th of July!

A little late, I know, but I thought I’d take the time to wish my American readers a happy 4th of July. I’m a big fan of the good things about America and as for the bad things… well, I’m not sure it’s really my place to say.

Here’s a 4th of July video greeting anyway:

And while I’m on the subject of Australian/American relations, here’s an old favourite you may not have seen. One of my YouTube subscribers was about to go into the armed forces and wanted an honest appraisal of how Americans were viewed overseas. Well, I can’t speak for everyone but here’s my take on what Australians think of Americans.

  1. I want one of those guns, but I bet they’re banned in the UK.

    We really ought to celebrate 4th of July over here too, we can call it “got rid of those ungrateful colonists” day.

  2. Maybe I’m stoopid (probably) but I think you forgot the link to the “What Australians think about Americans”

  3. Thank you dear for the happy 4th. It was so wet in North Texas that many of the fire works displays were cancelled.

    As for presidents….thank God Dubwa can’t be president again. He is the most unpopular president in American history…go figure. The bastage.

  4. Massif: I got it from a Chinese knick-knack store. I couldn’t believe I’d found revolvers that shoot confetti. They’re reloadable and everything. Awesome!

    Gruntski: On the money as always mate, thanks for the tip, I’ve fixed it now.

    Sandra: Yeah, unless he invokes the emergency powers he voted for himself. There’s something to look forward to.

    4th of July! Yay! Amatures and heavy consumers of alcohol based beverages having a free hand with explosives, weaponry, and heartfelt psuedo-patriatism. Some fun!

    As for Presidents, hopefully the next election here will ACTUALLY be an election and the person who gets the most votes will take office. Not that we’re likely to have truly distinguishable choices or anything. :sigh:

  6. Drinking and explosives: the perfect mix. And I hear you about viable alternatives. Still, it’s weird that they’re inflicting this 2 year campaign on you. I think they’re trying to grind the populace down.

  7. I’m an American, so thanks for the Happy July 4 wishes!! 🙂

    Love your post, by the way. And, speaking of the way that Americans are viewed abroad, have you seen the video NEW ZEALAND BANS AMERICAN MARRIAGES over at Huffington Post? It’s hilarious.

  8. You’re welcome and thank you. That video link was hilarious “God has a cure for America – it’s called obesity.”

  9. Man, I dunno if I’d have been so thoughtful. Like, I have not watched your video gift to us, but I know already I will enjoy it when I do. Let me thank you even though it seems somewhat premature, you know it can be hard to hold back when a guy gets too excited sometimes. We all do. Maybe America will cure itself if it does not curse itself first. We want to be first, you know. 🙂 As usual, I’m sorry I’m so late but they made a mess over here the other day. Partying fools, do they think “everything is all nice and wonderful now” or something? Maybe so, but I’d like to celebrate something more worldwide than the big Bush project, something with nominal happiness and much reality all rolled into it.

    Oh, yeah. Thank you. From America, if they agree with me that is. 😉

  10. hehehehe, as long as you had a good party!
