4th-of-july-patriotic-porch-decor

Now we go to the crafts. Of course, given the Covid 19 virus and the lack of quality federal leadership, this 4th of July will be a rather disappointing one for many. After all, it’s summer and you can’t go to any beaches, bars, or restaurants. So you might as well stay home and watch Hamilton on Disney + which is what I’m planning to do anyway. Still, at least you can decorate your house in star-spangled red, white, and blue to show your patriotism. Also, vote for Joe Biden in November but that’s another story. Still, you can have a lot of fun with decorating. Hell, you can even make your own décor. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of patriotic 4th of July craft projects. Enjoy.

Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Sixth Edition)

1431631403-firework-backdrop-de

Now that Father’s Day is over, we go into the Fourth of July. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, almost all municipal Independence Day events in the United States are canceled. So you’ll most likely see no parades, no concerts, no outdoor shows, no regattas, no picnics, and no local celebrations. And the only fireworks you’ll see are the your neighbor shoots off in his back yard. Yeah, it’s kind of depressing. But we all must make sacrifices. Still, you can at least make some 4th of July treats even if they’re just for yourself. And on July 3, a movie version of Hamilton will stream on Disney+ so you can no longer have any excuse about seeing due to being poor. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of star-spangled 4th of July treats. Enjoy.

Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Fifth Edition)

4th-of-July-party-table

Now that summer is around the corner and Father’s Day is over, it’s on to prepare for the 4th of July, or Independence Day. Normally, this would inspire patriotism, fireworks, and anything red, white, and blue. However, during the dark times of the Trump administration, it’s very difficult for me to get pumped with patriotic pride except when it comes to, “Impeach the Motherfucker.” Anyway, during this time, you’ll find plenty of stores across the country filled with red, white, and blue patriotic decorations, flags, and paper plates. In addition, the 4th of July is a time of fireworks and barbecues. And nothing inspires patriotic devotion to the flag like some star-spangled treats, which is where I come in.

Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Fourth Edition)

080f3c6f66078a36532d51d696e8770c

Once again, I prepare for the celebration of America with my annual posts of 4th of July treats and craft decorations. Despite that the presidency of the complete monster Donald Trump has very much ruined it for me since he basically goes against everything that my country stands for. And people think he’s a patriotic American? For God’s sake, he’s a fraud who feels more a home enriching himself on the taxpayer dime, breaking political norms, disrespecting the US Constitution and undermining our image in the world without a care. He’s a narcissistic sociopath who cares about nothing but himself. And people want me to unite behind this man or respect him? Sorry, but I’d rather spit in his eye since he has no respect for the United States, its values, or its people. Anyway, I apologize for my little rant but since that unrespectable man got in the White House, patriotic holidays seem to get me railed up since he’s alienated me. Maybe I’ll just take a knee until that authoritarian demagogue fascist is out of office. At least around this time of year. Yet, 4th of July is supposed to be a time of picnics and barbeques where you’d have hotdogs and hamburgers along with some desserts like pies. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of star spangled treats for America’s birthday.
