And Now, A Word From Lake Superior






That's it. That's all I can bear
to post today to mark 
Independence Day in the USA.

I love that song. Very important election this year.

Bob said...

I love the Lake's Twitter feed!

Martha said...

Oh, good stuff, Debra! Such a great post. And Lake Superior is awesome!

whkattk said...

That last one? Yep, that's exactly how we're doing it this year.

Polly said...

I enjoyed the song. I used to listen to a lot of Gordon Lightfoot.

Linda said...

I sir, am water haha!

CraveCute said...

Thanks for this Debra. I follow LakeSuperior on twitter, And this is the first political tweet I've ever seen it post. Thanks for injecting some humor into the precarious situation we find ourselves in.

bobbie said...

Too damn right!! I feel neither free, nor brave right now!

This N That said...

Loved the song..Independence?? What's that??

Moving with Mitchell said...

Those last two are right on the mark. Well, second to last is more precise — canceled. What will change by November?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Moving with Mitchell -- Well, I guess people are hoping that people will vote in droves for the Democrats in the November midterm elections so that some of the Supreme Court's worst rulings can be modified or even overturned by legislative action.

Liz Hinds said...

Brilliant. Go Lake Superior!

Mistress Maddie said...

That second to last meme sums it up perfectly.

Ur-spo said...

I grew up on the Great Lakes, and Lake Superior was literally 'awesome' to me. Oh to see it again!

Mike said...

Those last two have been posted all over the place. The ladies are not happy with the supremes.

Rain said...

Unbelievable crap going on there, I'm so far removed Debra (by choice!?!), Joyce told me about the (un)Supreme court stuff...what's next, a witch hunt?

Miss Val's Creations said...

So perfect for today! It is incredible what is happening right now.

Janie Junebug said...

Thank you, Lake Superior, and Debra. It's not much of an Independence Day with so many people fighting for voting rights and reproductive rights and fearing what other rights will be taken away from us.

Love,
Janie

Getting bitch-slapped by Lake Superior should be a watershed moment for anyone!

Lady M said...

Glad to see Lake Superior is on the correct side of history. To bad it does not have an appointment to the SCOTUS.

DB Stewart said...

"You need to work on your fragility" lol. Love it.

Kirk said...

There's been better Fourths, that's for sure.

Adam said...

Not all heroes wear capes, some are large collects of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen

Guillaume said...

Yup. Don't feel like celebrating this year, as much as I love Americans.

Jennifer said...

I found out that a friend of my friend Karen is the woman behind the Lake Superior account. They had a good laugh at all the attention this has gotten! "Lake Superior hasn't wrecked anyone this bad since the Edmund Fitzgerald" LOL.

I'm not on twitter. So this a bit confusing to me. Someone started tweeting as Lake Superior. OK that sounds like fun. I know there are plenty of strange ideas on twitter and the internet. So did the person behind this Lake Superior account decide to announce their support for the right to choose?

Sounds fine to me. Don't people just unfollow people who tweet an opinion they don't agree with? For example, if you were to post an opinion way out there in Nazi or Proud Boys thinking I might just stop following you. I certainly would think a bad witch had put you under a spell for that to happen.

We all have opinions and I believe some are potentially dangerous. Social media has allowed too much virtual outrage.

thanks for letting me vent here.

Anne Johnson said...

Love me some Lake Superior.

Barbara said...

Lack of Independence says it all.

4th of July was a subdued and sad day in my neck of the woods.
The local trumpublicans had an event in St George, the regional capitol, complete with lots of flags, Glenn Beck,
a country singer and fireworks.
Out here in the smaller towns, nobody did much.
My little town had the traditional pancake breakfast and a small parade. By noon, we were pretty much done with it.
I heard Cedar City had a more successful celebration.

The Blog Fodder said...

Love Lake Superior and follow her too.

yellowdoggranny said...

wonder if I could swim to freedom and throw myself on the mercy of the canadian courts?

Panty Buns said...

"Lake Superior hasn't wrecked anyone this bad since the Edmund Fitzgerald."
OMG, I love it!
Seriously though, unfortunately, Independence Day,
might wind up cancelled in meaning forever.
The architects of the new SKCOTUS (now SKCOTUS - Sickening Kangaroo Court Of Trump's Unscrupulous Sycophants)
have, cheer-leaded by Lying Lindsey Graham,
rolled back even the bare minimum right of Habeas Corpus.
England, from which independence was sought, now has more rights than we do.
Perhaps we should look into having England take us back in order to retrieve some of our rights.

Lake Superior is very wise! And it will "outlive" idiots!

Man, I am so behind...as I close my flip phone.
