Why don't they close down those tents and stop the fireworks this year? It is so dry it only needs a spark. I don 't want my house burned down because some idiot wants to make noise despite all the reasons - obvious reasons- fire should be curtailed.

^Yes, certainly go straight to immediate and full termination regardless of situation or preparation.*rollseyes*
Residents of "the Hill":
Is your lawn green and watered? Do you have water hoses and extinguishers on hand for safety? Are you launching from a large concrete surface? Will your consenting neighbors also be prepared and involved? Do you have family and friends coming from out of state to celebrate with you? Have you supported local commerce by spending hundreds of dollars toward Wednesday's festivities? TiredOfNoise doesn't give a S**T! TiredOfNoise says you are an "idiot" and ASSumes that all you want to do is "make noise". TiredOfNoise is a joyless, selfish, fearmonger who doesn't respect you, the holiday, or it's accepted traditions and prefers that you do the same. Ignore TiredOfNoise. They can sacrifice one 8pm bedtime a year and set aside their own arrogance to forgive you for doing nothing wrong by exercising your privilege. Be safe, vigilant, responsible, prepared, and enjoy your independence and the celebration thereof!

I agree, as long as you are safe and resposible who is to say we cannot use the fireworks we spent our hard earned money on.

Josh and ThatsStupid, I am sure you both do not have sense to come out of the rain. Maybe if your hillbilly a$$es had to put out all the fires, you might have a change of heart. Get a job idiots.
