    on the 4th of July back in my day - all perfectly legal.

    There used to be an incessant din of firecrackers going off 2 weeks in advance of the 4th in my neighborhood.

    My dad used to stock up on firecrackers etc.

    Today if you shoot off a firecracacker you get arrested.

    Even fucking sparklers are ilegall

    nobody can have any fun nomore.................

    Shouldn't have to do it illegally .

    Remember running around with freaking sparklers when I was about 7.

    Today illegal. 2 inchers and cherry -bombs were always ilegal

    Still havea good stockpile of 1and and a half inch firecrackers.

    That stuff Roman candles, sky-rockets, buzz bombs would look puny today -things always look bigger when you are a child.

    I remember when I was a kid we all had tons of firecrackers just about year round. They were great fun. Those were the good old days...

    My dad, and millions of other dads, too, I note, used to get hammered at 4th of July events and then drive the family home...sometimes the trips home took hours, too, so we'd stop for one for the road on the way home, too

    Another happy American holiday tradition killed by the spoilsport liberals and their damned nanny state.
