Fireworks: Taxpayer Money, Up in Smoke

Chris | InformationLiberation

Is it wrong that all I can see while watching the firework shows is taxpayer money going up in smoke?

As much as I enjoy fireworks, I can't help but find it angering the way the 4th of July is nothing more than some hollowed out, almost sarcastic joke of a celebration. The whole tradition of celebrating freedom in America has turned into the government taking our taxpayer money and burning it in a spectacular show of largess on the taxpayer's dime.

Meanwhile, Joe Citizen in most states is not even allowed to buy fireworks himself! The very symbol of the celebration of his freedom has been banned by the very same government which uses our tax money to put on elaborate fireworks shows to tell us how great our freedoms are!

As with all things government, it's only fine if they do it. They are above the law and us commoners need to know our place and bow down before their arbitrary dictates.

What a wonderfully free country.

If you dare to skirt the law and set off your own fireworks you have the tax feeders in costume trawling around town for some poor sap to jail.

Some land of the free!

I'll celebrate our freedoms when we are actually free. I'll celebrate when the major fireworks shows are put on by private citizens and private companies which exist on voluntary trade and symbolize freedom, as opposed to some parasite government which traffics in stolen goods.

America is dead, the government killed it.

Maybe over the next few years the American people will finally say they've had enough and throw this parasite government off the same as the American revolutionaries did the British.

69129 The only thing i can differ with Chris is that the government didn't kill America, the people did. They are a mirror image of each other. As in the days of Hitler. Hitler didn't kill anybody, he ordered it done and individual people scrambled to ''serve'' him and do his bidding. It was the people themselves that murdered millions. They created the monster that was the nazi's. The people created this monster called the united states as well. They do its bidding. They willingly kill, maim, destroy, steal all in the name of their chosen god called government. They created that fiction and now they reap the rewards of their folly. They get EXACTLY what they deserve. Both as evil as evil can be.

68200 No worries. Last year I discovered the other side to that coin. We live in one of the four major cities of Florida and our city didn't have a fireworks show last year. Having grown up in more prosperous past decades I couldn't quite wrap my brain around the idea of a city so broke it had no way to do a little celebrating once a year by blowing stuff up.

Still, people flocked to the waterfront where it had been in the past waiting and waiting. By 10:30 rolled around it was obvious nothing was going to happen. The doldrum funk that followed folks back to their cars was like no other.
