    Catpower, LOL! How true.

    Talked to my nephew today who is the manager of a supermarket. Asked him how he was handling the rush because it's the first of the month when the EBT cards get reloaded and the holiday weekend is the same time. He once told me they have to add extra help the 1st week of each month because of EBT. He proceeded to tell me about how many people were having to be run up twice. Groceries on EBT and cash for buying fireworks and beer.

    I got this image of these people celebrating the 4th. EBT hotdogs, and burgers on the grill, and a cooler full of cash beer waiting for nightfall so they can light up their fireworks. I can just see em. Lighting off a rocket and hearing it go POW - then watching em punch their fist in the air and yell - FREEDOM BABY!!! Good Americans.

    Sorta like my neighbor across the street, he has His and Her Harleys, and he'll set off at least $500 in fireworks tonight, but he tells me all the time he can't afford health insurance and he is all for Obamacare.

    Sorry, didn't mean to derail this thread and ramble on. Gotta go - the grill is hot and I got a frig full of EBT dogs, brats, potato salad.

    A top beer-making company has deliberately omitted God from its new ad citing the Declaration of Independence – and now outraged Americans are vowing to boycott the beer brand on the company’s Facebook page.

    In Samuel Adams’ July 4 commercial, a bartender asks, “Why name a beer after Samuel Adams?”

    He adds, “Because Samuel Adams signed the Declaration of Independence. He believed there was a better way to live.”

    Then the man recites the Declaration of Independence – but he omits “endowed by their Creator” from the segment.

    “All men are created equal,” he states. “They are endowed with certain unalienable rights: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

    He finishes the beer spot with, “Smooth, flavorful. We bow to no kings. Samuel Adams Boston Lager, declare your independence.”

    But when Samuel Adams was asked why it omitted the Creator from its ad, the beer maker defended its decision and said it is prohibited from mentioning God in its advertising.

    “The Beer Institute Advertising Code says, ‘Beer advertising and marketing materials should not include religion or religious themes.’ We agree with that and try to adhere to these guidelines,” Samuel Adams said in a statement to “Fox & Friends.”

    “While we do understand your objection to the omission of the phrase ‘by our creator’ in other circumstances (after all, they occur in the Declaration of Independence which Samuel Adams signed and helped author) we believe it would be outside our industry guidelines to invoke those religious words in a beer commercial.”

    The brewer’s removal of the Creator from the text of the founding document is reminiscent of President Obama’s 2011 speech omitting God from the Declaration of Independence:
