According to Joe Biden, if enough vaccinations occur between now and June, we would be able to get together in small groups on the Fourth of July. Does this mean that we would not be able to get together if the government is not satisfied with the vaccination numbers? People are currently able to get into small groups in conservative and in liberal states.

From the Washington Examiner:

“To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4 with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June. We all need to mask up until the number of cases goes down, until everyone has a chance to get their shot,” he said Wednesday.

“Back on March 11, I outlined a vision of what America could look like by the Fourth of July — an America that was much closer to normal life that we left behind more than a year ago,” he added.

However, Biden’s March statements on Fourth of July parties were slammed by Republicans, who argued that the transmission rate of the virus when outdoors is low.

“It was advice for an alternate universe. The president and his advisers may need to get out more,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “Americans are already getting together in small groups outdoors in blue states and red states, in small towns and big cities. The country is not locked down waiting for July 4.”

“If every willing person in America is vaccinated for #COVID19 by May, as POTUS has said, why put our lives on hold till July the 4th?” Sen. John Cornyn tweeted at the time.

The Washington Examiner has more on the story.

    D’s Cantina will be open on July 4th. All are invited, with the exception of anyone affiliated with the Harris/Biden administration. There will be no vegan dishes on the menu, fossil fuels will be burned to prepare the tasty meat for consumption. D’s Cantina is not a gun-free zone, although discretion is preferred. Masks are not required.

      I think I might smoke a brisket.

      • My, My, My says:

        I don’t know man, might be risky; be careful and wear your mask(s).

        Just kidding 🙂

        I KNOW I will be smoking a ~18 lb, prime brisket, with an 8 lb side of Slovacek jalapeno/cheddar Sausage to go with the Main meal of beer, for about 30 of my great mask-less friends. (its a pot luck in many ways). I can’t wait

        The rest of the naysayers can go over there and f*** off, we have shit to celebrate here.

        ‘Merica.

    Screw them! Don’t know about all of y’all but I’m ’bout tired of this Nanny State and the destructions of our Liberty. I’ve been having gatherings and food orgies since this crap FIRST (ht 2 SgtM) started and NO ONE has caught the Chinese Communist Originated Virus Infecting Disease of 2019 Bat Flu yet. And we’ve had plenty of those gatherings. As ninja pointed out/commented on the Open Thread yesterday, “I’ll bet that KoB won’t cancel his 4th of July…” Nope, he won’t, and yes Southern food does rule! Brother and his wife are at Fire Base Magnolia as we speak and there is a crockett pot slap full of BBQing Country Style Ribs a’percurlating lowly as we speak. The Bush’s Best Grilling Beans will go in the oven right shortly, there’s a tub full of tater salad (ht 2 Ron White), a peach cobbler, and some homemade cookies.

    Between now and 4 July there will be more food feasts here and the menu will include beef, pork, and bird beasts of various descriptions, prepared to perfection in just about any menu style that is ever been used. They keep pi$$ing me off and I’ll invite the whole dang TAH Family to come for Memorial Day/Family Re-union, AND the July 4th Dining in. Is 2 to 8 thousand considered a “small gathering”?

    Kinda useless advice, fucktard. Tens or hundreds of thousands of migrant invaders have moved into the US w/ no testing for the coof. Hey, what about them peaceful protestors bunched up coughing & sneezing on each other? Go back to your basement, and phuq yourself, senator.

  6. Mason says:

    If he had come out of his basement last year, he’d have known that people celebrated our liberty last year just fine. We’ll do the same this year.

    • RGR 4-78 says:

      We will do our family Independence Day party this year, just like every year including last year.

      Screw Biden and his incompetent b.s..

    Pancake Festival in Hawkins, TX today. 3 of the 4 Aunt Jemimas came from Hawkins per the local Chamber. Mixed race crowd, the parade stopped mid-route for the Star Spangled Banner, no one acted the fool, all stood up straight and cheered when the singing was over. Two ‘floats’, one with AJ relations, one with church kids. May have only been a two float parade in a one horse town, but God bless Texas.

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    I’m already planning on having a get together and if any pissant wants to “report” it then it automatically gets called a “protest”, FUCK that clown crew currently in charge!

    One of my favorite historical facts about the Declaration of Independence, The Birth of a Free People, blessed by The Almighty God, is that they were not all there in Philadelphia at the same time to sign the “F you, Georgie” doc due in large part to scheduling conflicts, one of which was they were a tad busy smiting the largest military force at the time.

    So with GREAT PRIDE and ALL HONOR TO THE MOST HIGH, I doth lay my quill upon this parchment to scribe the following:

    FUCK YOU JOE! FREEDOM DOES NOT HAVE CONDITIONS SAVE THE WILLINGNESS TO REJECT TYRANNY, AND WITH HIS BLESSING, CONQUER IT.

  10. So far went to Buds chicken up in Boynton Beach twice and Burgerfry in West Delray Beach with my before the china virus tuesday cheap dinner date and tonight out to Applebees with one of my dancing partners. Oh when you dance be sure to hold her tight: When You Dance, the Turbans 1955 on Herald.

    We don’t need YOUR permission, Li’l Joe Xiden, to celebrate INDEPENDANCE Day, with as many people as we please, large crowd or small family.

  12. The Stranger says:

    Yeah, whatever. I’m surrounded on all sides by neighbors that I don’t really care for (renters) so my barbecues are basically 3 people, maybe five, if my daughter and her fiancé show up.

  13. Biden/Harris are both dumber than a box of rocks and are not my Potus or vPotus and the Dem congress no longer can tell me what to do because they’re nothing but a large body of bovine manure, respect is earned and they don’t respect “we the people” and I don’t respect them and the dumb phucks that think they’re actually doing a good job !

    Lets show them arseholes a thing or 2 about the meaning of “Don’t Tread on Me”

    Here’s a large tankard of Sam Adams ale in a toast too 7/4/2021, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and all my fellow Veterans and God fearing freedom loving patriotic Americans!!!!and too a game of horse shoes along with some nicely grilled medium rare steaks with some fried onions, baked potatoes, potato salad, coleslaw, BBQ beans and some sweet white Jersey corn, OH YEAH !!!

    With no goal set, I’m predicting the goal will be met. I’ve dealt with empty goals before and every time the reward was given. Just saying.

    Here at Casa de Weazel, we’re not waiting until July 4th. We’re having a big BBQ Memorial Day weekend. Which coincidentally is our 28th anniversary (May 29th. I think the recommended gift for 28 years is ammunition{5.56 62gr, .45 230gr and .380 100gr} if you were wondering what to send).

    If any of y’all plan to stop by let me know, I’ll throw an extra brisket on (currently going with 2 base on RSVPs).

    Menu will be the usual: Brisket, ribs, sausage, potato salad, peanut butter banana pudding etc.

    I’d like to know what Gropey Joe’s handlers/puppeteers think are his powers. Cuz I don’t think his portfolio of powers extends to what I can do on my own property on 7/4/21.

    Last year we partied with ~60 folks at a pig roast in Michigan over the 4th of July weekend. This year it is scheduled for 3 July…

    The fear is theatre…
