Fireworks are over for another year. They weren’t so wonderful this year. But at least they didn’t explode in an enormous boom like they did in Plymouth, MA last night. About 15 minutes into the display, everything that was left went off all at once. That happened here in San Diego four years ago on the very first ignite. BOOM!

Well, that’s one way to get rid of the crowds quickly. Turn a 30-minute show into 10 seconds of fire.
Fireworks are dangerous. My home town almost burned to the ground in 1936 because kids were playing with fireworks near some oily rags in an alley. Fireworks have been illegal in Iowa ever since. The only legal ones are shot off by professionals at an organized event.

The 4th of July also brings out the asshats who court danger and injury. Like…this guy with a Roman candle in his pants.
Is there something in male DNA that makes them do such stupid shit?
I have done my fair share of stupid shit too, but none of it has ever involved intentionally sticking explosives near my genitals. I have never unintentionally stuck explosives near my genitals. I do know women who have stuck lit sparklers in their butts, however. They are no longer friends of mine. A condition of friendship with me is that you will never put any sort of burning item in or near any body cavity. Because I don’t want to be the one who takes you to the ER and has to explain your stupid shit-ness to the doctors while you lie there writhing.
It seems as we get older the chances of being around people with a lit firecrackers in their asses gets less and less. It’s one of the perks of aging.
And then, the Donald got into it again with this horrendous image of Hillary Clinton. Using a Star of David and piles of money, this image says….well…..we all know what it is supposed to say.
Trump says this isn’t necessarily a Star of David. Maybe it could be a sheriff’s badge? Maybe?
Interesting concept, Donald. Maybe Hitler used the same image to “deputize” Jews, liberal thinkers, gypsies, homosexuals, mentally-challenged people, and anyone else he deemed dangerous to his dream of an Aryan state. As bad as this gets, there are still people who support Trump.
Donald Trump could stomp a bag of puppies to death on national TV and people would still support him. I swear they would.
They will continue to support him until he comes for them.
I cannot wait to see what the Republicans do in a few weeks in Cleveland. It’s going to be a circus for sure.
