      Re: Happy birthday, America

      Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
      With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
      Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
      A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
      Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
      Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
      Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
      The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
      “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
      With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
      Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
      The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
      Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
      I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

        Inclined to say something about Trump, but those are moving words and deserve the stage to themselves.

              Happy Birthday America

              Happy birthday America
              It's the 4th of July
              I get to wake up in your freedom
              But sometimes I wonder why
              Seems like everybody's ****in'
              On the red, white and blue
              Happy birthday America
              Whatever's left of you
              You were the darlin' when you saved the world
              WW I and II
              France would just be part of Germany now
              If it hadn't been for you
              Now your children wanna turn you in
              To something other than yourself
              They burn your flag in their city streets
              More than anybody else
              Happy birthday America
              It's the 4th of July
              I'll get to wake up in your freedom
              But sometimes I wonder why
              Seems like everybody's ****in'
              On the red, white and blue
              Happy birthday America
              Whatever's left of you
              Who they gonna count on
              When you're not there to take their call
              Will the world keep right on spinnin'
              Without the greatest of 'em all
              Without the helping hand of God
              Your days are numbered, my old friend
              We're sure gonna miss you, girl
              You were the best that's ever been
              Happy birthday America
              All the broken-down cities
              By the left's design
              And the right can't seem to get it right
              Most of the time
              Every time I go to town and vote
              I just come home with the blues
              The lesser of two evils
              All we ever get to choose
              Happy birthday America
              It's the 4th of July
              I'll get to wake up in your freedom
              But sometimes I wonder why
              Seems like everybody's ****in'
              On the red, white and blue
              Happy birthday America
              Whatever's left of you
              Happy birthday America
