    I miss the “good old days” when we used to have battles with Roman candles!

    When I was in high school back in the Dark Ages, one night some kids filled up a trashbag with propane, lit a long fuse they’d brought, and pushed it out into a lake on a little raft. After a while, the fuse ran out and it made a very loud bang.
    .
    Lights came on all around the lake as people woke and wondered what was going on.

    we also have weird fireworks laws. some states have a vast assortment and legal. others make it illegal, and others only let only smoke.

    Michigan just recently granted another corporate wish list item and is allowing pretty much anything go, any day of the year. Many complaints about noise at all hours of night and finally the idiot who sponsored the original law is sponsoring another law giving local municipalities more jurisdiction over hours, days and noise. Most of the complaints were due to weeks of loud explosions from this waste of money going on deep into the early morning hours. Great fun if you are on vacation, but if you are a resident and the boom, pow, crackle is keeping you awake until 3:00 am and you have to work the next day, well then it’s a problem. So enough complaints and the republican controlled state government is finally poised to do something to serve the people instead of just corporate interests. And yes here in Michigan it has been corporate, business and certain special interests have ruled the state for the last 2.5 years since our corporatist “One Tough Nerd” governor took over with a republican dominated legislature. But the bottom line is, we the people were subverted in favor of corporate interests when the legislature removed restrictions on fireworks (type, times noise levels, etc.) and we the people suffered. Gee nobody could see that coming. But in stark contrast to the party way the state government is going to serve We the People and give some control back to the local level. And all this came about when they lifted the ban on fireworks that left the ground. Used to be you could have pretty much any thing you wanted as long as it did not leave the ground. Then special interests saw an opening with the republicans in control and got pretty much all restrictions removed. And then it was We the People (who live in the resort areas especially) who suffered.

    Why is your callous disregard for others not surprising?

    Doesn’t matter what is and isn’t legal in our city, we’re only about an hours drive from the Wyoming border where there is a fireworks store open year round that sells just about everything


    Last year the fire danger was so high fireworks sales for the “legal” stuff were banned but there were still plenty of fireworks going off in our neighborhood the night of the 4th

    I remember as child, some moons ago we always had fireworks. Now New York doesn’t wamt you to have sparklers because they are too dangerous for little fingers. Personally I think it is a right of childhood to learn to be careful.

    I had a friend. We called him “Three fingers”. Did a stupid human trick. He had found a detonator in local construction site. On the fourth he decided to set it off. AND he was going to hold it by the tips of his thumb and finger. He did it with the Blackcat crackers with no problem. Even swallowed one once when it was lit. He hooked up the wires. Put it between his finger tips. Touched the end. That is how he got the nick name “Three fingers”.
    Fireworks are fun just be careful. Don’t hurt yourself or burn folks houses down.

    The “pursuit of happiness” is dead in the blue states.

    There’s a time and place for everything this isn’t the time and all the states undergoing drought are not the place’s for firework’s.

    New York also doesn’t want you to have trans fats, sodas larger than 16 ozs, and a whole slew of other things. Apparently, the government doesn’t think we are capable of managing our own lives.

    You’re spot on. Wild fires are no joke. I’ve had ash from two wild fires drift onto my home in New Mexico. Be careful out there folks.

    You must live near me, dzw3030. Finally the fires burning in the Jemez and Sangres are mostly contained or dying down from the higher humidity and cooler air.

    We’ve had fireworks going off for 2 weeks already. The vet supplied tranquilizers for the pets.

    Only with arrogant, ignorant and inconsiderate rectal units like you. Your pursuit of happiness being the ability to be as obnoxious and irritating to you neighbors as possible does not take precedent over their pursuit of happiness being the ability to retain their jobs to pay their mortgages. Get a life. Better yet, Drop dead
