I live in the middle of Kansas, surrounded by conservative people who say that government should not control our lives. Yet here we are on the 4th of July and we can't purchase or ignite fireworks. It is illegal here, has been for years.
Talk about unAmerican!!!!!! The interesting thing is that i spent the afternoon watching black ashes fall out of the sky from all of the wheat stubble fields that are intentionally being set. Seems ironic that it is OK to intentionally light hundreds of acres on fire, but it is illegal to have fireworks because they might start a fire.
