Cade Butler 6 years, 11 months ago

My question was in reference to Babboy's comment.

I have to decide what means most food, gas or fireworks! Then I will let you know!

I dread it so much. My poor dog refused to go outside for 17 HOURS last year. Thanks so much law-breaking neighbors.

John Moore 6 years, 11 months ago

I serious agree with you about that. I mean last night I must hear someone shooting off some fireworks in my neighbor but decided not to contact the police?

doc1 6 years, 11 months ago

Yes. Just a few and definitely in the city.

We go to the county for a large party ! The way it should be on the fourth.Lots of friends , kids , food and loud booms. Lawrence is such a loser. We'll try to be quiet on the way out of town so we don't disturb anyone.

Fireworks are for sale. So for now I shoot them off. Have fun catching me.

Haiku. 5-7-5. Scoreboard.

No, but the local fire chief told me if the bunker ever catches fire he might let it burn a while before he brings anyone near it . . .

There has been a flyer for Garrett's fireworks in the paper all week. The fireworks advertised are marketed to appeal to certain types of buyers. So we have---

Pyrohlics Anonymous - for those that it is all about blowing things up Skyhigh, Vanguard, First Strike - for the patriotic users A Walk on the Wild Side - for the adventurous Creeper Jeepers - for those that like scary things The Klepto - for the thieves, I guess Spring Thunder - for the Nascar fans Dragons Lair and Monster Brawl - for the SciFi crowd

But wait, so they get everyone and nobody is left out, or because sex sells, we have-- "The Naughty Nurse" No Roe, I don't think she'll let you get that one.

I guess they get the budget minder with the coupons offered, but they missed the religous crowd. Ooops, missed the one called Bigfoot which is shaped like, of course, a big foot

LadyJ 6 years, 11 months ago

Wait, where is the one for us girls, like The Naughty Doctor or The Pool Guy?

Maddy Griffin 6 years, 11 months ago

Nope, I can't compete with the show all the neighbors put on.

1029 6 years, 11 months ago

Heck no! Those things are dangerous!

If I really want to partake in the noisiness, I might fire off a few .357 rounds safely up into the air, but that's about it.

LHS56 6 years, 11 months ago

I wish those that enjoy fireworks had time to visit with a friend of mine. He lost three fingers, one eye and suffered first degree burns on an arm. All for the "fun" of burning money. Yes...I enjoy fireworks and did some stupid things over the years. But after seeing how so many lifes have been changed by one accident I would agree to ban fireworks in the city and county.

Randall Barnes 6 years, 11 months ago

yes i will shoot off lots of legal fireworks inside the city limits just like i always have until the law comes up for a vote from the public. and no i did not vote for the city commission that was there at the time.yes i have had a few fireworks blow up in my hand and i will probably have a few more in my lifetime.ohhh and i am sitting back laughing allready for all my miss spelled words and grammer i know those of you will critisize......lmao

oxandale 6 years, 11 months ago

We live in Basehor (actually just rightoutside the city limits) and are having a ffew friends over to shoot off fireworks

Newsflash, to get seriously injured by fireworks you have to make a bad decision. Plain and simple. Some times people just need to recognize the cause of the injury was a bad decision, not the fireworks - or whatever it was that injured them.

2nd - Being anti-fireworks, to me, is a form of anti-Americanism, maybe a minor one, but it is. It is CERTAINLY a form of anti-make-a-kid happy-ism.

This town has most things backwards. I'm glad I don't do much more than sleep here.

beatrice 6 years, 11 months ago

Yep, because we should always trust how products are manufactured in China, especially the items made with explosive powder inside. What could possibly go wrong?

n2audio 6 years, 11 months ago


Made in CHINA?!?

If you're not going to trust anything made in china you better find yourself a nice, empty plot of land and sit in the grass. Otherwise, you'll be dealing with things made in china.

beatrice 6 years, 11 months ago

Please show me where I said I don't trust anything made in China. Sorry you can't see the difference between an alarm clock and an explosive. Your money, your limbs. Go for it. Prove Darwin wrong.

RogueThrill 6 years, 11 months ago

I would be really interested in a list of things you think are anti-American. Apparently, spending a crap load of money on something that last seconds and isn't reusable is important to you, but your children may be better served by a role model that encourages frugality and discourages wastefulness.

RogueThrill 6 years, 11 months ago

Nothing like celebrating an American holiday with extremely cheap trash manufactured in China. It seems like they do capitalism better than us.

If you really just want to waste money on something stupid, go buy a larger TV. America isn't going to notice your lack of explosions.
