Dueling Holidays: 1st vs. the 4th
It's Canada Day at the Rocky and Jane homestead. That's the day every year when Rocky pretends to like curling and Jane pretends to believe him. It's also the day Jane makes Rocky dress like Lorne Greene and model her vast collection of shoes, but perhaps that is TMI.
Anyway, it's a time to celebrate all things Canadian and there is certainly a lot to celebrate there. Whether it's health care or beer, they just seem to do so many things better than we do. OK, there is Celine Dion, but there is also SCTV and the Trailer Park Boys.

Dancing Liberally - Independence Day

Today we celebrate the issuing of the Declaration of Independence, a document declaring that we would no longer be ruled by a tyrant who trampled on our basic rights.

Eleven years later, an even greater document, our Constitution, a contract between us, The People, and our government, was ratified. In my mind, that was the true moment our nation was born.

Today, Our Constitution is in tatters. We have a president who, with the fawning support of Congress, has seized the power granted in Art. I and Art. 3 for the legislative and judicial branches of government and a Vice President who has created an Art. 2.2 in his own mind to create a Fourth Branch. They have used these new powers to perpetrate evil and destroy the basic rights and liberties granted to us in the Bill of Rights.

Tonight, let's celebrate Our Constitution and its Bill of Rights as they once were and as we hope they will be again. Come dressed in a way that celebrates these rights for a chance to win lindens, and let dance and discuss what we will do to make them whole again. DJ Rocky, fresh from his victory against Canada Day (see last Saturday's entry) will be spinning the bytes and launching the fireworks. And Dick! Cheney? That evil bastard had better just stay at his station behind the bar serving drinks silently, because he has no place in a celebration of American values.

"No More Patriotic Holidays!"
DJ Rocky rips the flag pin from his t shirt and insists that he'll only take non-patriotic requests tonight from people wearing neither red, white nor blue. Ok one or two of those colors are ok (except for red and white...the War of 1812's been won for almost two centuries now).

General, Sir! sorry I didn't get this week's listing to you on time --This week at the Red Zeppelin we will be screening the Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour" followed by The Rutles "All You Need Is Cash" a marvellous musical send up of the Fab Four by Neil Innes (Bonzo Dog Band) Eric Idle and several of the Pythons and most of the original cast of Saturday Night Live, with cameo appearances by Mick and Bianca Jagger, Keith Richards and George Harrison

And Dick Cheney does so belong at a celebration of American values. In fact he has a central role to play --- as a pinata.
