Fourth of July, 2020 in Wisconsin

Kids in a pickup with water pistols...so many laws broken.


The Fourth of July, 2020: 
  1. Attended an unsanctioned, non-corporate sponsored, 'illegal' 4th of July parade - kids on bicycles. The most patriotic 4th of July, ever. 
  2. Witnessed fireworks across the landscape - both illegal and certified. DID NOT SEE MORE THAN 5 MASKS. 
  3. Had a 'passionate' discussion regarding Columbus and statues with a collegiate sophomore. Yes. I went exactly as you think it did.
The Parade -

While sanctioned riots roll over the country, the cancel-culture wimps have cancelled most 4th of July events including parades.

It was a secret.  As the days of Paul Revere, times and locations spread via word of mouth, "There might be a parade at 11AM, pass it along."


Officially Sanctioned Fireworks

Fireworks - 

Good times. The decision to host events was in the hands of locally elected officials; Mayors and councils.  Most shrank in the shadow of Team Karen, freedom-loving cities moved forward.

"You're a kid.  You don't know shit about shit." -

If you haven't had a chance to talk with a college student about racism, liberalism, the benefits of socialism, white privilege, and supremacy - you are missing out.  Grab the nearest kid and ask why they hate Columbus.  

"He was a slave owner..."
"He raped tens of thousands of people..."
"He died in jail as a criminal..."
"We don't have statues of Hitler, do we?"

Seriously, get in a conversation with a college kid and be reminded how stupid we were at that age.  Things really don't change all that much.

The Parade -

You can expect a parade every weekend in Wisconsin.  Folks up here love anything that occurs outdoors, on account of the very passionate winters.  

The parades can be huge.  Every local business has a float, every fire station,  insurance company and politician gets into the act.   

This year one of the largest parades in the sate was cancelled, the people rebelled.  In small coffee houses and dark taprooms across the county, people met, plans made.  Word spread from neighbor to neighbor and over backyard fences, of a plot to bring back the parade.

Not all would risk public shame or political vulnerability - this event was for the strong at heart, true patriots. 

Children decorated bicycles.


Unlike Bunker Hill, this revolutionary event went off without a hitch, beyond the gaze of a tyrannical government.  Bags were thrown, country music performed and beers consumed.

One of the most American 4th of July's I can remember.

Meanwhile, in... 

Chicago -
Over the weekend, in the Great White, 79 people have been shot and 14 died.
Milwaukee - 
Six people shot, four died, Saturday night.
Detroit -
Ten shootings, three fatal

On and on...


"Democrats are watching America burn as long as they can rule over the ashes."
