Cinco de Mayo or Feliz 4 de Julio

By: Carolyn Hileman

Cinco de Mayo or Feliz 4 de Julio, that is the question, will they celebrate Mexican Independence Day on the 5th of May or the fourth of July? If our president has anything to say about it, it will be on the Fourth of July. That is right our president and certain senators are so passionate about giving our illegal immigrants their American freedoms that if we do not stop them in their tracks they will desecrate our Independence Day holiday by making it yet another cause to celebrate by our illegal friends. At this very moment our president is making phone calls urging the senators that helped derail this bill to get with the program. This is not a joke; I wish it was, they could not pass it on Memorial Day so now they are planning to pass this before their Fourth of July break.

Perhaps they have forgotten what that day represents; perhaps they think we have forgotten, perhaps they do not care, but I for one do.

- In the United States, Independence Day (commonly known as “the Fourth of July” or “July Fourth”) is a federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

- In 1777, thirteen guns were fired, once at morning and again as evening fell, on July 4 in Bristol, Rhode Island. Philadelphia celebrated the first anniversary in a manner a modern American would find quite familiar: an official dinner for the Continental Congress, toasts, 13-gun salutes, speeches, prayers, music, parades, troop reviews and fireworks. Ships were decked with red, white and blue bunting.

- In 1778, General George Washington marked the Fourth of July with a double ration of rum for his soldiers and an artillery salute. Across the Atlantic Ocean, Ambassadors John Adams and Benjamin Franklin held a dinner for their fellow Americans in Paris, France.

- In 1779, July 4 fell on a Sunday. The holiday was celebrated on Monday July 5.

- In 1781, Massachusetts was the first legislature to recognize the Fourth of July.

- In 1783, Moravians in Salem, North Carolina held the first celebration of the Fourth of July in the country with a challenging music program assembled by Johann Friedrich Peter. This work was titled the Psalm of Joy.

- In 1791, First recorded under “Independence Day” name.

- In 1870, the U.S. Congress made Independence Day a holiday, albeit unpaid, for federal employees

And in 2007 our president will mark it as the official day that we handed 12- 20 million illegal immigrants their legality, a final slap in the face to the American people who have spoken and said they did not want this. Apparently they did not feel enough heat from the American public over the last few weeks. Apparently they think we are having a siesta and that we are foolish enough to believe that those who wish to destroy our country are not going to try and slip something by us while we are getting ready to celebrate Independence Day. You see the idea is that we will be to busy buying the ground meat that has been recalled for our burgers and planning our parties that we will not notice when they decide just before Independence Day to legalize 12 – 20 million illegal immigrants.

Unfortunately for them we still know this number 1-866-340-9281, and we are not afraid to use it. We can find their emails and we can shut down their emails, because we don’t give up and we don’t give in and they will NOT pass this bill around Independence Day or any other simply because we the American people will rise up and we will fight with what energy we have left and then we will rise to fight again. Our troops are fighting in heat that would kill just about any of us and we will be sitting in air conditioning so I think we can manage to do a little fighting as well. We beat them back the last time and we will beat them back every single time this thing rears its ugly head, because Fourth of July will not be Mexican Independence Day. Are you ready to call them every single day? Are you ready to commit to see this battle through? Because if we are not the question will be Cinco de Mayo or Feliz 4 de Julio?
