Happy Independence Day America!

I suppose this day is to celebrate our victory over Britain, right? I won't get into my idea that no one can "win" a war right now, but I wanted to add this is also the Independence Day for the Philippines (I am half Filipino). In 1946 on July 4th, after 381 years of colonial rule the Philippines was granted full independence by the United States, which I am sorry to say, is in my opinion a bad decision on the United State's part. The Philippines is now one of the poorest countries in the world, with a very corrupt government, and a lower average annual salary than China. If you want to see other events that occurred on this day, check out this Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_4
