Happy Fourth Of July...


Good Day to everyone.

We are busy, busy, busy packing up, finding more stags in the closing process, this time it was not us it the lack of communication the lender has with the buyer. UGH!!
Its frustrating as hell to have one date set to move in, just for them to change the date again.
On top of that, we have a family reunion in 3 weeks with no furniture for family to sit on. Because of the lenders…but at any rate, things are moving along slowly but surely. Just needed to vent!!




Enjoy your Fourth of July…and here a bit of 
Black History for the Fourth of July…


"WHAT TO THE AMERICAN SLAVE IS YOUR FOURTH OF JULY"
Frederick Douglass
1818-1895


What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States at this very hour….more

Sure things have changed since these words were spoken almost 234 years ago…



However, I would like to leave with these famous words::

"Those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it." 
George Santayana












Have a safe and Happy Fourth of July!!
