I don't know if this is true or not, but if it is, it's truly disturbing!!

Obama Speaks to Congressional Summer Interns

Obama to College Students: Do Not Celebrate Fourth of July

July 2, 2013 By The Liberty Paper 2 Comments

As the country prepares to celebrate its independence from Great Britain President Obama had a completely different message for a group of Congressional Summer interns in Washington:

“America is a great country. There is no denying this. However, I caution you all as you step forward in your careers. Peer back into history and ask yourselves- Was a revolution truly necessary? Great Britain may not have had it completely right, but they had many things right. Take taxes for example. If your neighbor makes $1 Million a year, but you and your family can barely keep the heat on should he not help your family? God instructs us to help our neighbors. He does not instruct us to look down upon them though the windows of capitalism. Why then on the Fourth of July should you celebrate such a radical break from what is Godly and just? No doubt there are many voices warning you of the harm of big government. They are wrong. Government can provide you with what family and friends cannot. If this is gone what will you have?”

Many in the crowd seemed uneasy, and desperate for some sort of clarification. Julie Barks, an intern from Louisiana State University, asked President Obama, “Are you saying we should not celebrate the birth of our country?”

President Obama responded, ”I believe we should celebrate where we are going. Celebrate moving forward. Not where we have been.”

Shame to let a good subject title go to waste 70lbdraw, Harry Browne wrote (see link) "Uncelebrating the 4th of July" back in 2003 it's pretty good.

"Sorry...I should have checked snopes first!"

I would check other sources too, snopes isn't exactly known for being impartial.

If I were a gambling man, I'd bet if we could get copies of his class transcripts when he was "lecturing" in college, there would be lectures very close to what that said.... snopes or not.

In fact I'd give ya odds on it....

But of course all that has been legally sealed, likely paid for by "other" funds than his own.

So open, what was the word he uses so much.....oh yeah, so "transparent".... TBVIECian fools.....

Next your all gonna say the O'bama is a Jehovah .... because we all know the Jovie's don't celebrate the 4th.

Didn't Obama hold a BBQ for over 1,000 military families following a naturalization ceremony at the White House ?

Hot Links and O'bama's WH brewed Beer on Your tax $'s .... how un-American.
