Happy 4th of July
Happy Fourth of July, one of our greatest days in American history. And a great day that no one was complaing that the gun companies were making their boom sticks. Our country was founded by guns and beer so why are there so many pansy wimps trying to take away my right to do what every man loves to do: Fire off round after round of the largest gun they can legaly find. And since we cannt fire cannons for fun anymore we have to resort to fire works to fill that void. But here in NJ we have laws that keep us from legally enjoying that kinda of fun. We have these ass backward liberals that think they have to protect us from ourselves at all cost. But the funny thing is there are soo many more dangerous things out there. They say how dangerous fireworks are and how many ppl are injured a year by them. OK, I do understand that they are dangerous, but let us look at other statistics shall we......
Here is a perfect example of an area they could work on other than harashing me and my obsession with small fireworks..."In the past decade, four times as many Americans died in drunk driving crashes as were killed in the entire Vietnam war." Hmmmmm does anyone think cops out on the street should be concerned more about some kids litghting of M8o's or that asshole serving done side streets?
Heres another one:
"In 1997 alone (the last year for which data are available), 742 children under the age of 10 drowned in the United States last year alone. Approximately 550 of those drownings — about 75 percent of the total — occurred in residential swimming pools. According to the most recent statistics, there are about six million residential pools, meaning that one young child drowns annually for every 11,000 pools.
About 175 children under the age of 10 died in 1998 as a result of guns. About two-thirds of those deaths were homicides. There are an estimated 200 million guns in the United States. Doing the math, there is roughly one child killed by guns for every one million guns. " Now this also means that if you have a gun in your house and a pool and you have kids, they are 100 times more likely to die in the pool than they are by being shot.
Now there is a ton of information on things in this world that far more dangerous than fireworks.....hell every year there are 600,000 injuries from bicycles and 824 of them die from their injuries. But you know what I can still go out and legally buy one without anyone ever asking me for my ID or going through a waiting period. I just wish I had the right to play with fire works and it just irks me to think I buy so many other things out there that so much worse with no problem. Did you know you can make Meth from items you can find at the grocery store and HomeDepo? Come on all I want to do it strap a row of black cat fireworks to a cats tail and light her up......is that sooo wrong?
Sorry to bithch on a holiday but I have to work and the god damn sun is out.........I am a bit bitter. I even got to see all the families loading up their cars this morning getting an early start to their drive to da beach. I want to go to the beach WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! But you know what it isnt soo bad, I am all alone and I can do what ever I want. And you know what I could be this guy:
But then again I could be this guy: (sigh)
Anyhow...I hope everyone has a good Fourth....have a beer and burger for me and have as much fun ass possible :-D
