Saturday Night Americana: With an Open Thread

7-5-14 7:10 PM EST: People the world over learned a lot about American culture through our movies. They learned how we sang, danced, and what we thought was beautiful, handsome, and funny. Musicals were huge during the 30's, 40's, 50's, and even some 60's. The actors, actresses and songs still permeate us who are older. We who loved them watch them still, and our kids now in their twenties watched them right along with us and love them too...at least ours do.

Today is National Fried Chicken Day So Fry It Up!

7-6-14 4:36 PM EST: Did you know that today was national fried chicken day? When's the last time you had homemade fried chicken? Are you any good at making the perfect fried chicken? One of my personal specialties is my famous baked chicken, but I've a hankerin' for some southern fried chicken like Momma used to make for us kids back in the day.

July 4th Weekend: Remember From Whence We Came and Why

7-6-14 12:03 PM EST: I like this opening segment from Huckabee this week. It's about the Fourth of July of course, and he reminds Americans where we came from and why. He touches on the things which brought about the intense desire to be self-ruled, to slough off tyranny, and how so many times in our 238 year history we, as a nation, have had to rise, fight, defend, and die for the ideals of America and her founders.

What Is Independence Worth to You? AmericanDuckie

7-3-14 5:14 PM EST: If one were to come here today from another country and watch our mainstream news, the only news they would be informed of in serious tones is the storm making its way along the East coast, and… it’s about to wreak havoc on 4th of July celebrations. People may be evacuated from North Carolina’s outer banks as Arthur bears down on them and people everywhere have to cancel BBQ plans.

While I don’t make light of the first major storm of the hurricane season, I have gone through a few hurricanes myself to know how devastating they can be but what gets me the most is not just the fact that the storm is the big news story, but the fact that this happens to coincide with Independence Day and it seems most people only worry that this storm will screw up their plans.

D'Souza's Movie America is Doing Very Well at Box Office

7-6-14 11:23 AM EST: Dinesh D'Souza speaks to Megyn Kelly about his new movie, out now, which is really doing well. Reports I've seen of people watching it on the Fourth of July say that there were wild cheers during the showing and that people had tears streaming down their faces. That, along with the big, big start, by box office standards, even though it didn't open at nearly as many theatres as other Hollywood films, are positive signs.

Megyn Kelly presents and moderates, a debate between Dinesh D'Souza, a perfectly good human, and Bill Ayers, a two bit terrorist who should still be feeding rats his own skin every molting season, with additional Ayer eyeball treats every winter and summer solstice.

And then some.

Israeli and Palestinian Contrast: See The Huge Difference?

7-6-14 10:08 AM EST: Three Israeli teenage boys, including one American, are kidnapped and murdered in the West Bank and Palestinians celebrate. Rabid seventh century barbarians. Evil with a big E.

One Palestinian teen boy gets kidnapped and murdered, Israel tracks down the possible culprits and now has them in custody awaiting prosecution. The difference is of the night and day variety. Daylight versus intense darkness. Justice versus neverending hatred, continuous murder, suicide bombers, indiscriminantly fired rockets into civilian populations by the thousands, and jihad, from dusk till dawn, every freaking day.
