    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    Templo – Rare to see “estadounidense.” It’s one of my favorite words in Spanish. I lived ten years in Latin America and used it a lot. Another favorite – albondiga. Go figure.

    Religion,speech,assembly,thought,association, bear arms.

    We may not perfect but the alternatives seem much less appealing.

    I was kept awake most of the night by idiots who couldn’t wait until tonight to set off their very loud fireworks — RIGHT NEXT TO MY BEDROOM! (Please excuse the bold caps. I’m trying my darnedest to be civil.) So, I’ll be trying to get as much rest as I can today, and if the people next door decide to start ringing bells, I’ll “ring” their necks with those bells!

    Thank you Hector and Carlos for the information. I had completely forgotten, if I ever knew, of this tradition. I will, however, ring a bell a noon (MDT) today.

    “What freedom?” The freedom that millions seek when they jump that border. This influx of people defines my exceptional country.

    As I recall, Jefferson did suggest the ringing of bells and discharge of guns as celebration of the 4th. And since what goes up must come down, the discharge of firearms, is counter indicated (people have died at third world celebrations where folks discharge an AK mag straight up) so Black Cat’s seem a reasonable substitute.

    Actually shooting a gun straight up is safe. The bullet expends all of its energy going up and is just like a small rock being dropped. Ends up being an ouch but wont kill you. BUT not exactly straight up and it becomes a ballistic arc and will and does kill people.
