First of all....what a great country that people are free to say whatever they want without fear of reprisals! Second....if cities took all the money they blow up in fireworks today and apply it to the community, I dare say it would pay for an extra teacher or an extra policeman or perhaps an extra fireman for almost a year. But that's just the opinion of an unAmerican liberal who hates to see money wasted in this economy. And yes, I know it creates jobs for the people making fireworks....in China.

I've been to fireworks at a dozen or so places along the Jersey Coast over the years and the one consistent fact is that people spend money at local small businesses keeping them going and helping to fuel the economy.
Most towns around here get donations from businesses big and small to fund the cost of the celebrations .
I see orcas a positive that brings people together to celebrate our great country and our history.

I choose to view it as a positive experience .

Strange that a 'liberal' is thinking fiscally conservative and someone on the right is talking about the 'feel good' aspect of the displays. Doncha just love politics!

First; almost all the fireworks used in these mega-displays are made by small specialist companies right here in the USA. This stuff is all handmade, and quite a craft at that. The crap you buy at the roadside stands certainly comes from China - not this stuff.

Second; the funds for these events come virtually all from donations. That's why so many are "sponsored", like the "Macy's" NYC event. I'm sure the cities bear some costs, but it's no where near the totals mentioned in that article.

That said; I agree with you if it is otherwise in some communities.

Apparently the American Right celebrates the 4th by extrapolating anything they can to bolster their hatred for anyone that happens to disagree with them.

The American Right. They are all disgusting, horrible people.

Some people are idiots regardless of any political affiliations

Have any of you heard about that guy who was so upset with his kid cause he wrote right handed or that lady who had a gymnast daughter that always leaned to the left on her dismounts ?

So whats the big deal about those tweets? If you look back at American history there is a lot of things to be ashamed of. But oh yeah yesterday was the 4th so we can't talk about it

Seriously?? So anyone who doesnt lean to the left and remotely identifies with anything "American Right" is a "disgusting horrible" person? WOW, I dont even know how to begin to respond to that one. Thats a pretty Broad statement to make about anyone who obviously doesnt agree You. Have you personally met and know the ENTIRE "American Right" ?

It was a joke. Read any post from the last 3 years from DFC. He has met everybody on the brain-dead left. Just ask him.

This thread started as a broad generalizing stereotype of the left, Bhawk as he's been known to do no doubt responded in like with sarcasm, I find it quite appropriate.

As much as the author of this thread and of the linked article knows the entire American Left.

If you read the WP for any length of time, you pretty mcuh know who is on the right or left. I guarantee that there's not one person on the right that has any problem with the premise of this thread at all, and they won't say a word. But, some will take offense at what I posted in response. Boo hoo.

Once again, the inferrence is there that the "American Left" doesn't love their country and is to be held in contempt. I posted a reply in kind, and I frankly don't care how it is received. Goose, gander.

Yes, I read the link and all the commentary after it, and took note of the history of the person who started the thread.

Now you're making fun of the way I responded? Proved my notion true.

Bhawk, Yes I am quite aware of who leans which way on this site, although I barely post, I do find great amusement in reading the Forum on a daily basis. Most people make themselves pretty clear on the issues. Lol. I guess I identify with the Right much more so than the left, although I would call myself more of a moderate in my views. I am very conservative in some areas and then there are a couple of beliefs that I have (legalizing marijuanna and Gay rights) that are much more liberal. So I can identify with both sides. I think we ALL Love our Country or we wouldnt get so Passionate about this stuff......

I just think the statement was way over the top....I can assure you that all Right wing Americans are not Disgusting and Horrible, just as all Left wing Liberals are not...beautiful wonderful people on both sides of the spectrum. I have never stated that Liberals dont Love their Country...I think they Love their Country with a Great Passion as do Conservatives. I realize that you were offended by the thread, but posting an equally inflammatory view doesnt make it any better. Just my humble opinion......and Like Mrs. Ann said, what a blessing to Live in this Great Country where we can express ourselves without fear of repercussions, which is what I did.
