Annual 4th of July Parade in Ojai, California

Congratulations, United States of America, you're 238 years old today and looking spry!

The Autoblog staff would like to wish all of our readers a very happy Independence Day, where you're hopefully surround by family and friends, hot grills, cold beers and a wealth of firecrackers to set off (careful for your fingers) in an appropriately supervised environment. Oh, and pro tip: if you get a chance to drive your classic car in the local parade, don't be the guy that didn't bring enough flags.

Things will be a little slow around the site today, as we relax and celebrate right along with you all. Enjoy the holiday!

        Anyone who opposes 0blamo is a racist.

          Says who? I have never agreed all the policies of any president including this one, but some of you people have really jumped the shark on Obama. You whine at EVERYTHING he says or does, find ways to discredit him for anything good that has happened under his administration, but blame him for two arabs fighting over tea in Oman. If your objections to Obama were rational, maybe I could see things differently. Never mind unemployment is down to 6.1% or that we are no longer going from country to country overthrowing governments, and declaring war on people who won't do things our way. Never mind that regardless of how you feel about healthcare, it is a good thing that is actually benefitting AMERICANS. The bottom line is, no BLACK man will ever again be elected president. To you I say, MISSION Accomplished.

          Obama has said and done a lot of things that rubbed people the wrong way. Whether you choose to notice that or not often seems to depend on what side of the isle you are on. A great leader has the ability to reach out to the other side, and gain a certain level of support there. You may say that's impossible these days, but I disagree.

        Except the Cruze is ostensibly Korean. But never mind, happy holiday.
