Please don't do fireworks in your neighborhood
The quote above was actually posted in many forms by my neighbors using the NextDoor App.
Wait, so let me get this straight, my kid can't play with sparklers or a few crackling 'tanks' because you have to get up early?
We've come a long way from 'Land of the Free'.
These fines from the City of Fort Worth aren't 'for our safety' or because the government 'cares about your terrier who doesn't like the noise'. They are there because the government wants every chance possible to take money from you.
Go read the book Three Felonies a Day.
With so many laws on the books, there's ALWAYS something you are doing wrong that they can come fine/arrest you for. Will they? Not necessarily, but you become a nuisance to them, they've got plenty of things they COULD harass you for.
No thanks. I moved to Texas to get away from California-style encroachment into my personal business. Also, my kid loves sparklers. Throw your dog in the bathroom with a TV/Radio on, like I do mine. He loves the extra treats he gets NYE and July 4th.
Loo, I am all about honoring my neighbors. But there's also personal responsibility. I'm not trying to shoot bottle rockets over my neighbor's house. Got it, that could lead to fire. A fire, I'd rather not be financially liable for.
I'm talking about the neighbor who calls the cops on me because I'm sitting in the driveway with my 2 and 4 year old playing with sparklers and throwing snap-crackles at our feet. A neighbor that obviously doesn't understand "Letter of the Law vs Spirit of the Law" common sense.
How about we let adults act like adults. If adults shoot a firework and start a fire, let them be liable and accountable for their actions.
Adults used to be responsible, now we just use government force to prevent people from doing what they want.
I bet you're pretty angry when people infringe on your liberty by using policemen with guns to prevent you from doing something you're extremely capable of doing just because some others don't mind and aren't bothered by the restriction.
Worried about the dangers of fireworks? Don't use them. But don't tell others what to do and cheer when laws are passed.
Also, fireworks these days are cheap, Chinese variants, not dangerous $1,000 explosions like you see on TV."
