Fourth of July Fireworks Cartoons - 3 July 2010

*** Check out America's cartoonists for the Fourth of July!

From Denny: The motto of America is "E Pluribus Unum" for "Out of one, many." You sometimes wonder when the founding folks of any country set up lofty goals and laws if they were considering their descendants. Humanity can often cop a bad attitude and slide backwards if nobody is watching.

But isn't that the point? Anyone involved in creating a new country's foundation principles upon which future generations can build must realize how important it is to set high goals and magnificent vision for the human race. We are capable of so much. Maybe we just need a few nudges every now and then...? :)

Enjoy your Fourth of July and check out the links to other Fourth of July posts for recipes, poetry, quotes and photography at the bottom of this post!

Cartoonists have quite enabling embed codes for blogs the past couple of year.  Sometimes, the cartoons are so popular they continue enabling the embed codes.  That's why you will see these white spaces on blogs.  Oh, well, enjoy the ones left!  A few laughs are better than none at all, right? :)

Meanwhile, as Americans go on holiday:

Jeff Stahler

Gary Varvel

And off the coast of Louisiana where the Fourth of July is celebrated on the tar ball beaches:

Mike Luckovich
