Independence Thoughts

A friend I Follow at The Confusing Middle……posts prompts every Wednesday and this week is “Independence”. If you haven’t checked out that blog, I highly recommend it. But Go After you read this! After all, I sent you there. That should mean something!

Okay, Now for my thoughts:

Independence Day aka (also known as.. for all you non-English people out there) is the day America celebrates it’s Independence! While I love the idea of the celebration and some of the things we do to celebrate it.. Potlucks,Parades, Festivals and even Store Sales..the one thing I don’t like is the fireworks! There are a few reasons I don’t like them. They’re noisy.. which makes my cats hide and there is no escaping a Migraine attack, But, the main reason is, they are dangerous. I fear fire. If a roof in the park catches fire, it will spread quickly plus, not a year goes by without some idiot burning a finger off, or setting an animal on fire. People go crazy with their “celebrating” with some even shooting guns in the air. Remember, what goes up, must come down, somewhere. Fireworks under controlled settings are okay, although, still loud.

I am proud to be an American and to be free to celebrate it, the way I want. I am just not proud of some of our Americans stupidity.

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!

  1. Well said my friend. The noise is ridiculous in my neighborhood too. Last year, I found bits of exploded paper and other crap in my yard and on the roof. A few days ago, the neighbors two doors down lit what sounded like a brick of firecrackers in the backyard.

    That is expressly forbidden in this HOA. Last summer, they did this continuously and lit bottle rockets in the road. I’m still pissed so I drove to the HOA office nearby and lodged my complaint, told them the whole story. These morons will be receiving a letter from the HOA soon.

    And, I believe that they are renters too which is BS. I have told the management that the rules/bylaws need to be re-written to expressly forbid renting homes in this HOA. They don’t care! Renters have no skin (money) in the home so why should they care?

    I hope this 4th will see these dipsticks cease the fireworks. Also, the little stands that sell fireworks in parking lots all over this city need to be shut the heck down. Thanks for listening to this…
