Moonshine, American moonshine – A dandy way to celebrate the Fourth!

Posted on: July 4, 2009

Spirit of '76

Spirit of '76

This is a  celebration of a celebration.

A moment in time, and a memory of that moment. A a celebration, by recognition of that moment of recollection.  I am romancing memory, if you will. For, in these difficult days, all we have are memories.

Now, don’t get me wrong people. I love Mothers Against Drug Driving (have been member for ever), and I don’t condone illegal activity, but hey, this is the Fourth. The Fourth represents the ultimate of all illegal activities, don’t it? Revolution, that is. So, there it is!

With all those appropriate caveats (for the humorless) behind us, here is my paean to the grandest  American Holiday.

Of all the great movies of my generation, the most stirring is MGM’s The Great Escape featuring thrilling performances by all, including James Garner, Charles Bronson, Steve McQueen, Richard Attenborough, Donald Pleasance, James Coburn, et al.

Of all the memories and moments of that great flick, nothing stirs the soul like this fragrant moment. Watch the clip at 4:40, beginning of the lovely Yankee Doodle sequence. Enjoy.

But, as the Holiday wore on, hot dogs consumed, beer drunk, and horse shoes thrown about – totally off the pegs, that is –  well, it just couldn’t be helped. I just had to come back in, and add this clip in, for after all, it is the Fourth! So, give a click and hum along …

And, of course, no Fourth of July is complete without some kind of a rant. My favorite rant this year is wholeheartedly in agreement with Michael Savage. On Road Trip, watch.

Oh, Savage, you are the perfect antidote to tedium!

Happy Independence Day, America!

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

  • Trump Ends Family Separations at the Border, Nets Still Not Happy June 21, 2018
    With the stroke of a pen, President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that would officially end the policy of separating parents and children who come across the southern border illegally. It’s what many on the right and left wanted to see happen, but for the liberal media it wasn’t enough, as CBS anchor Jeff Glor demonstrated by opining about how […]

  • ‘Did You Take a New York Times Suppository This Morning?’ June 21, 2018
    A gem of a comeback on a prime time drama. After a character contended “the world is no longer as simple as us and them” and “if we don’t evolve beyond us-and-them logic, then we will go extinct,” another character retorted by wondering: “Did you take a New York Times suppository this morning because I can’t imagine how else anybody can internalize so many b […]

  • Celebs, Media Bash Pro-Lifers Not Being ‘Pro-Life’ for Immigrant Kids June 20, 2018
    Taking children from their parents is wrong – whether they’re born or unborn. But many in Hollywood and the media are accusing pro-lifers of only focusing on the unborn while, at the same time, they only focus on the born. Following reports of children separated from their parents after crossing the border illegally, many celebrities and media attacked the p […]

  • Splinter Staff Still Using Twitter to Post Stephen Miller’s Phone Number June 20, 2018
    Twitter reportedly took action against Splinter News’s Twitter account after it tweeted the personal cell phone number of White House advisor Stephen Miller. Despite this action, Splinter’s editor-in-chief shared the number, yet again, by retweeting a screenshot with information about Splinter’s temporary Twitter ban.
