Independence or Insanity?

If you haven't celebrated the 4th of July in Provo, UT you haven't experienced patriotism at its highest (or most insane) level. The folks here in Utah Valley make Glen Beck look like a Communist. We love our country just like everyone else, but at the annual Freedom Parade we couldn't tell if we were waiting for a parade or a Miley Cyrus concert. People, including us, camped out on the side walk over night just to get a decent look at the parade. You don't believe this is real? Check it out. We have proof. We were there.

The philosopher Nietzsche once said that,

“Insanity in individuals is something rare, but in groups, parties, nations and epochs it is the rule.”

It gets better. Not only were the people watching the parade insane, the people in the parade were just as crazy.

It was a fantastic way to celebrate America's birthday. Nothing says America like a bunch of Star Wars characters marching down the street on a hot summer day. I promise you won't see that anywhere else but here. We love the USA.
