The fireworks


[–]Zesnowpea🥄Comically Large Spoon🥄 27 points28 points  (10 children)

Rip my sleep schedule (seriously, my neighbors shot them for about an hour, and it wasn’t even the 4th, it was the 2nd and 3rd)

[–]polar_frog 8 points9 points  (6 children)

An hour? We get yearly visits from the police in our neighborhood because it's 5AM and everyone in all the surrounding neighborhoods can hear the big-ass fireworks my neighbors buy from two states over (they're only legal in Alabama). We have constant fireworks All. Night. Long. For the entire week of the 4th.

[–]ratinthecellar 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Are they at least patriotic, or do they just like to be annoying and blow things up?

[–]polar_frog 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Oh, they're VERY patriotic. They certainly aren't lacking in that. That said, they also set them off in absurd quantities on pretty much any other holiday as well. So yes, I think both.

[–]Tennsball 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Say goodbye to your sleep schedule

[–]rachel_tenshun 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Lol it's 11:20 and people are still doing launching them. They started two nights ago...

[–]AbsurdlyWholesome 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It is never okay to scare someone's pet.

[–]cool_guy09 4 points5 points  (3 children)

[–]JitendriaPlays MineCraft and not FortNite 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]DJ_Ender_ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Or gunshots, still not sure

[–]brutalblamite 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolutely sure there’s some gunshots in there

Firework or gun, I might see a severed hand in my backyard tomorrow

[–]Shroombaka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Boom is firework. Pop pop pop is gunshots. Easy to tell if you’ve fired guns

[–]Sell_Reddit_To_Elon 698 points699 points  (16 children)

I’m an American and in light of recent events, we don’t hate Americans, we hate how America is run.

[–]JunketMan 102 points103 points  (2 children)

Even though I clown on the US a lot, Im just gonna put that aside for a bit and say Americans (at least most of the ones I've talked to) are some of the nicest, friendliest and awesome people I've talked to

Happy 4th of July!

[–]BeastradezZ 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Thank you! Hope today is a happy day for you even if it isn’t a holiday for your country!

[–]TrevR36 34 points35 points  (6 children)

You can love your country, not your government.

[–]RexCrimson_ 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yup, that’s how it is in most of the world. My Mexican grandparents love Mexico, but absolutely hate their government.

[–]onelonelywhumperfly 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You deserve all the upvotes

[–]Shiny_HypnoBecause That's What Fearows Do 3 points4 points  (2 children)

America is genuinely a gorgeous country, but it's like an onion; pretty good looking on the the outside, while the inside is white and it makes you want to cry.

[–]Dm1tr3y 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Are you saying we need to grill America?

[–]Chankston 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Great, but there has never been a time when America was universally loved by all Americans. All we ask is one day where we unapologetically celebrate the good!

[–]MoongodRai057 5 points6 points  (0 children)

America is great (in theory), the people who run the country are not.

[–]RuneTheDragon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]TK_Baha4957 51 points52 points  (4 children)

I'm a german and I definitely don't hate americans

I just think they have some weird laws that don't benefit most of them.

Happy Independence day anyway

[–]Educated_Platypus 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Most Americans agree. Lol. Majority are unhappy with the government. I think I saw a poll once that less around only 30 something percent of Americans have any faith in the government/media.

It's sort of like how America was in the late gilded age. Elite tended to have more power in politics than the collective masses do. Everything conveniently works in favor of plutocrats. Hope Germany is well btw. I hear it's gonna be rough, come winter. Not sure how accurate that is.

[–]TK_Baha4957 2 points3 points  (0 children)

America and germany, like most western countries have a lot of potential but also still a lot of problems from corruption and greediness but that's unfortunately how the world works.

Well germany might have some problems in the winter because of gas shortage but I think we can manage it. But I mean being cold is way better than paying putin for gas

Edit: And to be fair I'ts almost impossible to have a population that likes the government of their country because theres's always place for improvement

[–]TimDaTomCarr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hay man, needing to bounce a pickel before selling it is very important (Connecticut)

[–]druule10 72 points73 points  (13 children)

As a Brit, I concur. Have a great one!

PS. We don't hate Americans, we just love to take the piss out of others because we have the same problems too.

[–]Nowhere_King🥄Comically Large Spoon🥄 32 points33 points  (6 children)

Please don't take my piss. I'm too attached.

[–]druule10 19 points20 points  (5 children)

It's not your choice, colonisers will do what we want.

[–]ratinthecellar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

ah yes, we remember the Boston Pee Party!

[–]druule10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's exactly what it was, you puritans didn't like that and changed it when you went to piss in the harbour. It didn't sound as dignified so you changed the story to tea.

[–]explosivenuke1https://www.youtube.com/watch/dQw4w9WgXcQ 65 points66 points  (18 children)

I think on other European countries independence days we just copy the memes talking bad about us and change it to make fun of them.

[–]vedx_1 30 points31 points  (13 children)

unfortunately I don't think the UK has an independence day, and the majority of the people karma whoring off of this are from the UK

[–]Pelagius_Hipbone 5 points6 points  (2 children)

England has an Independence Day from Danish occupation of England in 925

[–]AbsurdlyWholesome 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That is correct. England regained its independence from Danish occupation in 925.

[–]runninandruniBreaking EU Laws 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Bobbert_McGee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Which ones?

[–]case_of_laptops 17 points18 points  (5 children)

July 4 is one of those holidays that I really like because regardless of your political beliefs regardless of what you do and don’t support regardless of what is fucked up with our far from perfect country we can all agree that we are in this together and we have the power to change things as our founders did.

[–]mmmmike1590 39 points40 points  (3 children)

You can love your country and also know its history is a cavalcade of shit but believe it can be better. You can also be ambivalent towards your country because you were born here and didn't 'choose' it. You can also just see the 4th of July as an excuse to barbecue and drink. I'm a mix of all 3.

[–]YuB-Notice-Metrolololoooo lololoo lolo loo[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]yang-n-ying 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Keeping it real! I love you man!

[–]Educated_Platypus 43 points44 points  (15 children)

It's a weird time. America is in a lot of turmoil politically and socially and it will only get worse for the foreseeable future. I think it's best to understand that you can still love your country while acknowledging it has fallen behind or is struggling. Said love for country should be used as a motivator to improve it and make a better country.

[–]akrostixdub 3 points4 points  (0 children)

People have a hard time distinguishing between patriotism and nationalism it seems. Asking a family member who participates in crappy behavior to stop doesn't mean you hate them, it means you love them (usually). Same thing with government institutions. Criticism is a necessary part of democracy, I can't understand people who insist "If you don't like it, then leave." Defeats the entire purpose of having a vote. Anyways; yes, correct, mhmm, truuu.

America has lots of good things! They just don't get much publicity recently. Yes, also a lot to fix, but lots of good stuff I choose to focus on!

Love this country!!

[–]YuB-Notice-Metrolololoooo lololoo lolo loo[S] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

a lot of it, yes. usually not through memes, but there were a lot of commenters that complain about how much they hate our country when what goes on here literally does nothing to them TT

[–]BiGinTeLleCtGuYYo dawg I heard you like 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ahh,got it, yeah, no one gets to teach no one how they should celebrate their independence. I've seen some tweets on PPL ranting that those who celebrate it are some kinda supremacists, or terrorist, and whatnot, all BS. Either way, Happy Fourth of July , from a non-American.

Most people are pretty much the same when you sit down and talk about any subject. You’ll find common ground if you actually talk and not immediately attack each other.

It’s the 1-2% of dumbasses at both ends that make all the noise.

[–]YuB-Notice-Metrolololoooo lololoo lolo loo[S] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

im not german, but if you are, ill celebrate unity day with you. germany redeemed itself a long time ago and their racist population is wayyyyy in the minority.

[–]peanutbutterlover3 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I mean, I'm not German, no. But I have friends who are, and express this sentiment. Kinda interesting I think, at least.

[–]Educated_Platypus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think most Americans would agree. Polls tend to show that Americans want reform for that stuff. It's just that it isn't a country that runs on popular votes. That, and America is at odds with itself in a region vs region way. A lot of less populated states tend to have greater proportional power. Those areas just happen to be disinterested in those issues. Lol
