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.

67214 Actually MOST of the cost of a Firework show goes to the INSURANCE Industry, I did shows for 10yrs until the PAPER work & the cost of INSURANCE made it NO FUN!!!! @70 percent.
