Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s been readin’ up on this Independence day that we’re celebratin’ today here in the U.S.. Ya’ know, what I’s read made me so purroud to be an American kitty, and even brought a few tears to mine’s eyes. We are so Blest to have had such wise fore fathers who recognized God had created them and gave them the freedom to choose how to live and govern. This great Country was born out of the desire to escape tyranny.
That’s right Raena. And, ‘stead of creatin’ a government with a king or a dictator, they decided our government should be one that’s ruled by the people it serves. Unfurtunately, some of the repurrsentatives that have been elected don’t always follow the wishes of the people they repurrsent. It’s a real shame when this happens. That bein’ meowed, just like any other employee, those repurrsentatives can be voted out and new ones voted in.
We thought it was a cool coincidence that we took this foto this
meownin’, July 4th and the foto nummer is 1776. We just had to post it.
Yep sissy, and I’s also learned that no where else can peeps talk so badly ‘bout their reps without dire consequences. Throughout history peeps have been jailed and even killed fur speakin’ out against their leaders/government. But here in the U.S., peeps are free to say whatever they want, and the news sure is takin’ advantage of that lately. The latest bein’ all this talk ‘bout refugees bein’ sepurrated from their families and held in cages. They wanna blame President Trump and say it’s all his fault. Thing is, none of this started with him, and those refugees are actually bein’ treated better now than they were unner furmer administrations. And unlike us anipals when we have no home, they’re not bein’ held in cages. That’s fanky fanks to President Trump.
Those are good points Raena, but we’re not here to meow ‘bout pawlitics today. We’re here to celebrate the signin’ of the Declaration of Independence and our freedom from tyranny. We live in the greatest Country in this Universe. God Bless America!!!
You’re right sissy. Ifin anypawdy’s innerested in readin’ that amazin’ document that brought ‘bout this Country’s freedom, I’s think wikipedia breaks it down nicely here. It also gives some background and other innerestin’ infurmation ‘bout that time in our history. You know the one thing I’s didn’t find in mine’s research? I’s didn’t find that any of our fore fathers set off fireworks that day. So, I’s thinkin’ we oughtta tell everypawdy, no fireworks this year. What do you think sissy?
Me thinks that’s a great idea Raena. Unfurtunately, me doesn’t think anypawdy’s gonna pay attention to us. But, did you see the new toy mommy got us to keep our minds off those noisy boomers? It’s kind’a like those hexbugs we like so much but bigger. Mommy says she hopes it stays out from unner the oven and fridge a bit better.
Really sissy? Do we have to wait fur the boomers to start befur we can play with it? I’s wanna play with it now.
Guess you can ask mommy, Raena. But, me thinks we oughtta finish brekky furst. Anyways, we should wish everypawdy a Happy Independence day and God Bless America!!!
Okay sissy. We’d like to remind everypawdy to stay safe and don’t furget that not all us aniplas enjoy the pawrties and festivities. You can check out our posts ‘bout makin’ your kitties and woofies happy while you celebrate here and here. We’re still gettin’ caught up, so we’ll be by to visit you all soon. God Bless America!!!
Till the next time……………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

No matter how we as individual Americans feel about politics, the president, representatives, political parties, skirmishes and wars, we all have one thing in common…we live in a Country of freedoms paid for with the blood, sweat, limbs, and lives of those who were willing to put themselves in between us and those who would try to enslave us. Peace and Freedom, require a price that not all have the ability to give, but those who do, pay it for us all. The right to speak or write your opinion, to disagree with the president and say so, the right to own a gun or rifle, the right to worship the Lord the way you choose, or not too, the right to protest, the right to live the life you choose: these are just a few of the freedoms we take for granted each and every day. But for each, there was a price a soldier had to pay.
That’s right sissy. Each day that we write a post adding our opinions to this thing called the world wide web, we are exercising the rights a soldier bled and died for. America, is indeed the Greatest Country in the world. She has always stood for Liberty and Justice for all. The recent influx of muslim ideals has caused a real division in this Country.
Yep Raena, and we think peeps aren’t truly aware of the realities of what muslims actually believe. If they were, there would be a lot less division. Take a look at the countries ruled by Islam and Sharia law; they ARE NOT FREE!!! Women and Minorities, have NO rights. There is no other place on this planet where you will find the freedoms we have here in the United States of America. This is just the latest in a long line of peoples/ideals trying to enslave us. Those soldiers who fight and have fought often find/found themselves serving in Countries where they aren’t/weren’t allowed to exercise the basic freedoms they are/were fighting for. But, because they so believed in everybody’s right to freedom, they willingly left their families and homes not knowing if they would ever return. We are ashamed of how some have treated returning soldiers in the past. Again, we may not agree with the war, but we should always come together as a Country of free people and support those who are willing to put themselves between us and danger.
9/11 was a real wake up call to this Country. We go about our daily lives and give no thought to what’s going on in the rest of the world. And yet, every day American soldiers are somewhere in foreign lands fighting to keep us safe, to make life better for all. We don’t worry about bombs going off in our cities and towns, schools or churches. Unlike many countries, we don’t worry about soldiers or terrorists knocking down our doors and raping the women and children and killing the men. We protest without a fear of being executed. We do these things because of those soldiers, those men, women and animals, fathers, sons, brothers, mothers, daughters and sisters who put themselves on a wall and say, “Not on my watch.”
To those soldiers and their families, we say, THANK YOU!!! God Bless You!!! We support you, and we are praying for you. And for all those who never came home alive or the same and their families, we are so grateful for your service and sacrifice. We cherish the freedom every drop of blood gave us. We will Never Forget the price you paid. Again, THANK YOU!!!
We carefully and thoughtfully, and yes, tearfully chose the videos we’re sharin’ with you all today. We do hope you’ll take the few minutes required to watch them. And purrrrrrrrrrlease, remember to thank any soldier or vet you may meet at any time. You are living a free life they fought for.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy. Me doesn’t have to tell ya’ but today is Memorial day here in da United States. As you know me stays away from pawlotics here on me’s bloggy cuz well, there’s just no way to win. You know when it comes to holidays, we always seem to say Happy, Merry or some other gleeful expression. And so today there will be lots of “happy Memorial day” sayings. But me doesn’t exactly know what’s so happy about a day dat we remember those who have served and died or were irrepurrably injured fighting for the freedoms we live under. Especially considering da state of our current affairs.
Now don’t get me wrong, me’s grateful to have been born in America and have those freedoms, and we are soooooooo grateful fur all those who serve and have served to keep us free and safe. Me is grateful to their families who while not serving abroad, served just da same. Me is thankful fur every fallen soldier and he/she is a hero in mes book. Me is thankful to all those who came back to their families and country. And me’s ashamed of how our country has treated some of those soldiers. Whether you agree with the war or not, those soldiers are following orders. Those soldiers are keeping you and me safe. Trust me, they would rather be back home safe and sound in their own beds with their own families. So shame on us fur not always supporting them da way we should. And shame on us fur allowing our government to take away some of da very freedoms dat were bought with da blood and lives of those soldiers.
Dat’s right, Freedom isn’t Free. While our government scurries about tryin’ to re-write history and take away our right to bear arms, or censor our speech, or the many other rights they think allow us to much choice, men and women in da military are still dying to purrtect those rights. Many of those same soldiers serve in areas where they’re not allowed to purractice da same rights they’re fighting fur you and me to keep. Shame on us fur bowing down to Cult leaders who call themselves rulers and telling our soldiers they must abide da rules of da tyrannical governments we as a nation are tryin’ to overthrow.
Are we Patriotic? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Do we luv America? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! We know we are blest to live in such a great country and we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. This country was founded on da beliefs of da Bible and our fore fathers intended fur da people to control da government, not da other way around. God Bless America, land of da free and home of da brave. Let us never furget how this country was established and those who bled and died to ensure you could go about your days and nights safely without a care. Those who furget their past are doomed to repeat it. So today and everyday…
Me will get off me’s soapbox now and wish you a safe and blest Memorial day. And mommy and me want to say a meowsy big Thank You fur your service. We will never furget. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!
