Anne, Stryker, April The Cat & I are back in Canada after a Three Day Getaway in Watertown NY, one Day before the FOURTH, Flying our Two 3x5 Feet Canadian & American Flags Side By Side . . . feeling somewhat more Concerned than Patriotic, Being Concerned, because we are Indeed Patriotic, which makes it Hard to Revel in Patriotism, when you know that More than Half the People of your Country, Don’t Understand Nor Appreciate the Sacrifices our Forefathers Made . . . TO HAND-US THESE INCREDIBLE NATIONS.

I Haven't Yet Written-Off Canada . . . But I’m Not Hopeful & I'm Really Close.

WORDS LOST IN TIME, PLACE, MEANING & HISTORY:

In the Immortal Words of President John F Kennedy: “Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You. Ask What You Can Do For Your Country.”

THEY SHOULD ONLY GET FOR WHAT THEY WISH:

VERY OFTEN . . . I Imagine A “Dream” Scenario - WHERE WE GIVE THE LEFT EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT . . . a Society with no Police, No Borders, No Guns Amongst The People, No Capitalism where Entrepreneurs are Incentivized BY WEALTH THROUGH PROFIT in order for them to Create, Construct & Manufacture, and where the ONLY VOICES which can be Heard, will be the Voices, WHICH THE LEFT WANT TO BE HEARD.

And Morality Is Taught In The Schools - Where Everything Goes . . . & Parents Take A Back Seat To The Teachers & The Will Of The State.

BE CAREFUL FOR WHAT YOU WISH . . . ‘CAUSE IT AIN'T NECESSARILY WHAT YOU WANT:

PRESIDENT TRUMP ENDS ALL OF HIS RALLIES WITH . . . "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones – Did You Ever Wonder Why?

When You're Looking for PERFECT, and You'll Settle for Nothing Less – You’ll Never Have Anything Worthwhile. And when you are Willing to Settle For EVERYTHING . . . Nothing will be Worthwhile.

SO WHAT DOES THE LEFT WANT?

I watched Various Interviews Conducted on US Campuses during the past Few Days, where the simple Question was . . . “ARE YOU PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN?” - The Responses for the Most Part ILLUSTRATED HOW FAILED American Parents & American Academia have Been in Raising & Guiding America’s Future.

HOW DO WE TEACH THOSE WHO DON'T WANT TO BE TAUGHT?

BUT IT’S NOT JUST AMERICA . . . When I Read How Canadian & American “Kids” EMBRACE Socialism, as if Socialism, which is just another word for Communism, is somehow the Panacea for a Utopian Society . . . I Can't Imagine where we have to begin, just to change things around, Because You Can't Teach Those Who Are So Ignorant, That They Don't Want To Be Taught.

I WISH I COULD CLICK MY RUBY SLIPPERS & MOVE TO THE WORLD OF JOHN GALT:

Judy Garland Sang Somewhere Over The Rainbow . . . And Ayn Rand Wrote About A Magical Place, Where The Freedom Of The Individual Was Supreme.

But . . . If Wishes Were Horses Beggars Would Ride.

AND THERE IS NO UTOPIA . . . NO PLACE OVER THE RAINBOW & NO JOHN GALT:

But There Is The United States Of America . . . The Closest Dream To Utopia. And for those who are so Ignorant, so as Not to See the Opportunities Before them in the Freest Country ever Conceived . . . Of The People, By The People & For The People, there is No Redemption & No Hope . . . Other Than Fairytale Dreams, Empty Promises & Supreme Failure – WHICH DOESN'T MEAN WE HAVE TO BE A PART OF THEIR CATASTROPHE.

WE DON'T NEED TO RUN & HIDE . . . ALL WE NEED DO - IS SHUT THEM OUT:

WE ARE THE MAKERS . . . Whether We Work For A Living For Others – Or Work For Ourselves, Or Employ Others Who Work For Us – It Is Us Who Are The Deciders, NOT THOSE WHO WISH TO DECIDE FOR US.

Canada Day Just Passed (July 1st) . . . Independence Day Is Tomorrow (July 4th) – And if you want to make a Pledge to be a Patriot, Make this Pledge . . . BECAUSE YOU CAN KEEP IT & IT WILL WORK.

Don't Argue With A Leftist. Vote for Real Conservatives. Hold your Elected Representatives' Feet to the Fire. Don't Give your Hard Earned Dollars to Companies which Support the LEFT. GET INVOLVED . . . Support the Groups & Politicians Who Support Your Values.

DEMAND . . . Smaller Government.
DEMAND . . . Answerable Government.
DEMAND . . . Transparent Government.
DEMAND . . . Only Necessary Regulations.
DEMAND . . . The Public Sector Be Treated The Same As The Private Sector.
DEMAND . . . That The Courts Adhere To The Constitution.
DEMAND . . . That Your Country Be Treated As Exceptional.
DEMAND . . . That Charity Starts At Home.

And when the LEFT Insult, Lie, Disparage the Opposition, Threaten & Resort to Violence, CUT THEM OFF. Let them Pay the Socio, Political & Legal Price For Being Stupid, Ill-Informed . . . & Otherwise Irrelevant.

AMERICA . . . YOURS IS THE UTOPIA OTHERS DREAM OF – DON'T SURRENDER IT:

This Is Your TWO HUNDRED & FORTY-SECOND Birthday, Scarred, Bruised & Battered by all who Challenged Your Freedoms . . . Yet – For all of those who Care & Understand . . .

America Is Still That Shining City & Beacon Of Freedom Upon The Hill.

HAPPY JULY THE FOURTH!

There's A Five Minute Audio Broadcast With This Editorial.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

Thank you Howard. We have 4 little dogs and stay home with them, they do not like the Fireworks. We take comfort in that we have a great Person at the helm who is doing great things for this Country. The best is yet to come with continued improvement in all areas.

I'm optimistic! The left has been out of control most flagerantly since a fair election decided they had enough of criminal politicians. D. Trump is neither your typical politician nor is he a criminal. American people elected him fair and square, and they stand increasingly appalled by the assault on the results by the losers. I think the losers are standing to lose even bigger in the mid-terms as a result of these leftist tactics.

Great Howard, I wish that all the demands could come true. I'm an 84 year old Army vet who flies the flag every day and would reup if possible. Remember the meaning of the fourth !!!!!!!

America is the utopia which every person, who is not American, seeks out physically, or in their dreams. All peoples of American are truly privileged to be part of her, to contribute to her well being and share in her wealth, yet, astonishingly, there are those Americans would destroy her top to bottom, and inside out, just to sate their desire to instill a soul destroying ideology, in which those in control, are a best, vehemently opposed to common decency and respect for the people.

There were only 5 bureaus of government when FDR died. We need to go back to that. HUD has been corrupt from the begining. NEA is poisoning our children and schools. Labor is totally socialistic and was taken over by the Mafia many years ago, and I could go on and on. Hopefully, you get the point. Downsize government and fire all the deadbeats and money grabbers doing nothing for the good of the country and the citizens.

The problem is our leftist gov'ts and institutions do not listen and have no reason to listen to us. They mistreat and look down their noses at all their constituents. They have no intention of changing anything because they are so entrenched in their own leftist insanity they see no other way. It is important to keep challenging leftists and holding them and left media accountable. Keep chipping away, marginalizing them and showing them up for being wrong.

POTUS Trump has his ducks in a row. He is demanding the demands you have listed. The LEFT can continue shooting cannons at his ducks, but this is NOT a carnival, even tho The Left is as Crooked as a winding road. The USA IS THE BEST and with God, POTUS Trump and GOOD People who get involved we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Great Editorial, Mr. G. God Bless

It will all be decided in the mid term elections and in October 2019 in Canada if we go left or go right politically.

Having grown up in Eastern Europe, I shudder at the thought of living in a socialist country. I would like to ship all the leftists to live in Cuba or some similar “paradise on earth”. They will be curred of this madness very fast. In practice, it is no utopia as described in books. Same goes with the open borders. The celebrities supporting it should be forced to welcome the illegals in their home and at their expense. It is unfair to expect taxpayers to foot the bill. Keep up the good work!

Howard..... as always you are just simply RIGHT ON! I don't know if you've seen it already but this move #walkaway is amazing. It's on twitter and on Facebook... Thousands that were on the left are leaving the left. It will make you happy to see the testimonies. It sure made my day!

Howard, ANOTHER REALLY WONDERFUL "BLOG".....I also enjoyed the other "blogger's" remarks! HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA!! God only knows what the "leftist LOONS" are teaching in our schools.....certainly not LOVE & PEACE!!! I do believe our mid term elections will be "proof of the pudding"!!!! Thank goodness for our WONDERFUL POTUS, who is trying like heck to get our USA, back on "track"!!!!!

You mentioned Ayn Rand. So many do not understand that there are producers and looters, or, as you say, makers and takers. They are all for redistribution, totally clueless that there have to be producers -- goods and services don't just fall out of the sky. You deserve what you produce -- nothing more. The takers are unwilling to rise to the producers' level, so they try to pull the producers down to their level. Witness Venezuela, Cuba, other socialist countries --wretched failures, all.

Howard, if President Trump can quote a Rolling Stones' song, as a young teenage fan of the #2 rock group (#1 is Yah, Yah, Yah...you guessed it...The Beatles) ~ as a guy living here in Montreal, Quebec, Canada...I'd like to quote another Rolling Stones favourite: "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" !!! And no Julie, I am NOT referring to you, I promise !!! I sure don't want Julie locking me in the basement again. No, No, No. "And I Love Her" - Brucester

Great Editorial Howard. Don't argue with a leftist...VOTE FOR REAL CONSERVATIVES...DEMAND the 8 demands you mentioned this will work for CANADA AND AMERICA.William J Laux said it all! PM Sock Puppet has set different rules for himself on #METOO.A young news reporter groped 18 years ago, she put it in the newspaper to make sure he knew along with all who read the paper.He doesn't remember sounds like he does this all the time..a norm for him..he's a narcissist!

Howard...I just want to thank you for your endless effort to show America and the world what a great country we have in America. You are a bright candle that gives most of us Patriots a way to be able to see in a dark room. I said this before and I'll say it again. I wish you and all those who you call family could find a way to pull up your roots, come to America and become one of us. In some ways you already are one of us, but I'd like to see it become official. We could use one more Patriot.

Great comments by all! By the way, when is the rest of Canada going to wake up and elect someone outside the sucking province?

I have been a follower for a number of years. Your editorials just keep on getting better. I have forwarded it to 12 of my internet friends tonight. This is PARTICULARLY GOOD. I hope a lot more people follow you and do the same. My e-mail said that you have grip on US exceptionalism better than most Americans. I'm 90 and have seen a lot of living, but until Trump came along I didn't have much hope for my grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. We all need to pray that Trump is successful. Bob B

For those of us who have read "Atlas Shrugged", john Galt is the real leader. Reardon Steel just a dream or is it. Here in Idaho, I am proud to be recognized for my Military Service and very proud to recognize others who served. I have yet to met a Liberal who has served face to face, though I hear they exist. My Marine Grandson, is a very proud young man. He is contemplating a career in the Corp. I as one stubborn old Soldier stand vigilant as I see Civil Unrest in other states.

I just realized we have a problem with Canadians invading our country. I just moved into a new house in Millsboro, DE and there's a sediment pond behind my place and there are a bunch of geese here and there's crap all over the place. They are beautiful birds and I love them, but wish they'd go home for the summer. Do you think maybe "global warming" has them confused?

The story of the song Somewhere over the Rainbow is unbelievable. It was written by two Jewish immigrants from pre-WII Europe. The song is about leaving Europe to come to a new land full of promise. I don't think that a leftist would ever figure that one out.

WHAT DOES THE LEFT WANT? They want to: 1)DESTROY Pres. Trump; 2)REGAIN control of our GOVERNMENT; 3)RETURN to HUSSEIN Obama's LIBERAL POLICIES; 4)GET more FREE STUFF; 5)ALLOW more ILLEGALS in the U.S.; 6)DESTROY CHRISTIANITY; 7)RUIN out EDUCATIONAL process; 8)MAKE the people more DEPENDENT on WELFARE; 9)SILENCE the CONSERVATIVES by ELIMINATING the FIRST AMENDMENT; 10)ELIMINATE the SECOND AMENDMENT; 11)CONTROL our ELECTION system; 12)KILL babies and SELL their ORGANS for $$$...PLUS MORE! AMEN!

Bravo Howard, I concur. May I make a suggestion? I think Trump should ask the following question in his next rally. When many people call for open borders, he should ask any of those bleeding hearts if any family is willing to host one illegal family in their home for ONE year ( Feed them, clothe them; give them pocket money and pay for their medical expenses ) without knowing ahead of time whether these people are ( pedophiles; murderers; carrying diseases, etc) Steve Acre, Canada

Howard, everybody has a July 4th. Only the USA has Independence Day on July 4th. In the future, please refer to it as Independence Day.
