Blows Up Real Good! (and it's better with beer!)
Could anyone please tell me how getting drunk,blowing up such large fire-crackers that it sounds like WW3, scaring the bejeesus out of countless dogs and cats and jolting other people out of sleep is symbolic of Patriotism?? Most communities have 4th.of July Parades and Fire-works displays...fine and good....what I have a problem with are the reckless firing off of (usually illegal) fire-works in the days preceding the 4th, and for several days afterward...and into the wee hours of the morning. Even though there are city bans on such actions they are often overlooked.....and the mind-set of those scoff-laws is..."I'm proud to be an American"...Huh?
