So important for our Country that the very simple and basic “Are you a Citizen of the United States?” question be allowed to be asked in the 2020 Census. Department of Commerce and the Department of Justice are working very hard on this, even on the 4th of July!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

When I was young parades always included military vehicles. Our fathers, or somebody else's drove them in a war that sustained our freedom.

"The village's Fourth of July Parade, first established in 1894, is said to be the longest continuously celebrated such event in New Jersey and one of the oldest in the country...

Just across the Hackensack River from me. I've attended the parade and people come from elsewhere to join in. It's a really big deal.

Happy 4th to everyone.

People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern.....

....and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World. Perhaps even Aircraft One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd. That will start at 6:00P.M., but be there early. Then, at 9:00 P.M., a great (to put it mildly) fireworks display. I will speak on behalf of our great Country!

Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th! My mother and sister have been visiting. yesterday we were sitting on the porch and I read a few headlines out loud,including the lefty trauma about the tanks. My mother said,"the weight of the tanks could do damage to the foundation of the Lincoln Memorial." For a minute I was speechless,then said,"Mom are you still watching MSNBC?" :)
Have any JOM internet sleuths read anything about the weight of the tanks? Or is it the usual fake news upsetting little old ladies?

Narciso79

Happy independence day.

It doesn't matter what argument you use on dread pirate Roberts

Between 33 and 42 tons, not heavier then in the display in 1991,

MissMarple2

Marlene,

Go to that link from Jali Cat and you will see tanks on DC streets at Ike and JFK's inaugural parades.

I heard on the radio that the tanks are on the Mall, not near the Lincoln Memorial.

Buckeye

Marlene

Explain to your mom that the cranes that built the Lincoln Memorial are an order of magnitude heavier than a tank.

JiB can probably chime in with details.

jim nj

Marlene,

The modern Abrams tank weighs about 68 tons, the WWII Shermans weigh considerably less. They were trailered into the city. Probably run over plywood to where they now sit. Probably no visible tracks.

Momto2

Listening to/watching 5 minutes of the MSM's coverage of today's celebration, we must conclude that President Trump prayed Voltaire's prayer:

"I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it." Voltaire

Whoa! Brexit invokes July 4th, 1776, against the EU. Compares themselves to an EU colony.

Brutal. By bringing up the analogy, they are implying that a negotiated departure, unlike the American Revolution, is an appropriate route to follow.

The Americans left the UK without negotiations and are celebrated throughout the world for doing so. The UK can do the same, with the same result.

Happy 4th, everyone!

Jack is Back!

JimNJ,

Not plywood but large dunnage 8X6 Beam’s to spread the weight. And Buckeye is right, a large erection crane like a Manitowoc 4100 weighs more. No way there will be any foundation damage.

Happy 4th. Besides fireworks the early festivities of watching Lefty heads explode will make this the best Independence Day ever. Even the movie.🇺🇸🌽🌭🍔🗽

jim nj

I suspect the tanks will be a big hit with the kids if they let them climb all over them. Worked for me.

Jane

Happy Independence Day!

MissMarple2

The reporting on this 4th of July celebration is simply abysmal. The number of hysterical people who think that tanks have never been in DC before is astounding. (Why I posted that link to the pictures, so you can show people who have been LIED to by the media.)

In addition, President Trump's speech at the Lincoln Memorial will not be the first. Harry Truman spoke there back in 1951, which was the 175th anniversary of our independence.

I was going to post a schedule of events that The Hill had highlighted, but they had included stuff from Code Pink and other protest groups like they were official events.

Television coverage will be on Fox, C-SPAN, OANN, and the White House will have a live stream. The commercial networks are ignoring it.

Eleanor Holmes Norton was just on my radio station demanding that the federal government reimburse the city for any damage caused by military equipment. I imagine every crack in the sidewalk will be attributed to the tanks. Why did SHE get a sound bite on my 8:00 AM news?

Now, what I want to point out is that on this story, which is not as significant as say - North Korea, we can easily see that the press/media is LYING and sowing confusion and pushing negativity while hiding coverage of the parade.

This is a continuing and organized effort to control what we see and hear and to make everything about the President negative.

I do not believe anything I see in the press about the President until I see it verified by the White House. About the only things I trust on the news are weather reports and traffic reports.

If you want to keep your blood pressure down, when you see a story that gets you aggravated, WAIT and see what is really going on.

Now off my soapbox.

Nytol,

Happy 4th and fireworks.

Jane,

How's your weather? Over here it is extra humid. No air, no breeze. The ocean is a milky white with the cloud cover. Visibility diminished. One Mayport shrimper sitting opposite the house about 500 yards off-shore.

Big to-do today at the Club's pool. Dogs, burgers, corn, potato salad, cole slaw, the whole enchilada.

Need to go walk the Beagles soon.

Glad you enjoyed the Biltmore trip, D. I did, too. Have a great time at your niece's wedding! Will it be outside?

I am paying additional attention to wedding posts now. My son will have "the talk" with his girlfriend's dad on Saturday. The ring should be ready in about 3 weeks. I think he's decided to propose in the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

Last night, 12 children, a pregnant woman, a convicted felon, & 19 illegal aliens were found locked in a produce truck at a checkpoint.

Iggy,

When I went to buy cigarettes yesterday the gal at the gas station had heard about the tax hikes in Illinois! She allowed as how she would move if she lived in Illinois, so I have no doubt you are right about more refugees.

Thanks for the tank info. I know that my mother watches MSNBC because she said some nasty things about Trump. It infuriates me that an (almost) 87 year old woman sitting and crocheting baby blankets is listening to cr*p being spewed. I don't argue with her (dutiful oldest daughter) but my sister gives it right back and will argue all day long with her.

We always used old tires to get a bulldozer across pavement.

Pretty harsh but I guess that the recognition of what we are faced with when trying to debate Tom R is a net positive for JOM as a whole.

I will admit the my Pence speculation came from absolutely no other explanation being offered by the administration combined with the timing.

Maybe in two weeks we will find out what Pence was up to.

Heading to the parade in a couple hours. Always a big deal, including a bunch of Canucks that come over.

Tomorrow we’re going over to the senior center and have a mass protest. KING5 is bringing a film crew. The bitch heading the board resigned Sunday, but there’s still several slugs needing a hurried exit. Good thing there aren’t any Antifa punks around, or we might have to pack.

MissMarple2

According to the schedule, the parade starts in a little less than an hour.

I need to find a live feed on the computer. We don't have cable and getting PBS without it is pretty hard on this side of town - the station is way up on the north side.

--Iggy

Really hard for us city slickers to even come by used tires.--

We always had piles of them. To use a modern buzzword irritant I 'curated' our piles until I had some nice smallish passenger car tires cuz they're a lot easier to grab from behind the cat and run around to toss in the front as it crossed. The nice thing was you couldn't wear em out so I kept the same pile to use for years.
When I was a kid, my pop a mechanic, would always bring us home logging truck or other semi inner tubes to use on the creek and in the pool. :)

The Infamous Ignatz

Ooh, that reminds me of a bad day. Was logging a few miles up this Forest Service gravel road which had a couple of turns too tight for a low bed to negotiate, though logging trucks could make them. It was a little steepish in places so those portions had been asphalted. Had to move the cat down the hill by myself to a spot the lowbed could get to.
Crossing a 20 foot road is one thing. Having to get up and down off the cat lugging those freakin tires back to front for 150 yards over four or five of those patches of blacktop was a whole nother thing.
I was so much younger then, I'm older than that now.
