That's all it takes? Just to say it? Ok. I don't take responsibility for my electricity bill this month. YAY! Now I can afford more shoes!

Ya know, there's a more active way to reduce the chance of fires, NOT LET YOUR WIFE SELL FIREWORKS!

Well, around here fireworks are only legal in rural counties, and there isn't much else to do besides get drunk and set off dangerous explosives near your house on a dry summer evening.
 
2012-07-03 09:56:59 AM
Fireworks don't start fires. People start fires. Unless the Obama admistration ordered her to sell the fireworks. Then its his fault.

If shooting off fireworks at a party are your idea of fun, then yes I doubt I'd enjoy being there.

Midnight Sunday, most of the county without power, grass dry as tinder, some arseholes were letting off fireworks. If they do it again, I should suggest they take their stupidityness to Hizzhonor's backyard.

You know what would cure this shiat real quick? Make these farkers who start fires by being stupid take some kind of responsibility for their actions. Not jail, service of some kind. They have to plant 10 trees for every acre their fire burned. And not next December either, as soon as the embers have died down. Or they have to go cook lunch for the local fire crew for a month, and make sure the firemen know why they're there. Of they're free labor for the construction companies that are tasked with cleaning up and rebuilding the houses that get torched.

I grew up in Kansas farming community, where every year there was probably a 30-40% chance wheat was still in the fields when the 4th came around. Trust me, we knew better than to shoot off anything close to a field that had either wheat or stubble in it, and we were dumbass 12 year olds. It's not that damn hard to avoid torching a measurable percentage of a state.

Seems like authorities have gotten pretty good at identifying the people responsible for these big fires in most cases. Make these people see the results of their stupidity.

The one thing nazi-HOA's could be good for - banning fireworks - they never do.
 
2012-07-03 10:05:01 AM
I'm no expert but I have used a fair number of consumer grade fireworks and never had a mishap. I didn't even follow the safety guidelines all that strictly. Basically unless you are really being a dumbass you will probably be just fine. As for fire hazards, if you are going to ban fireworks due to a wildfire risk you had better ban cigarettes too because they start a huge number of wildfires every year.

These are not odd things in New Mexico. My favorite lately has been the Mora Sheriff Department's newsworthy events. Sheriff gets in fight with deputy that is audio recorded. Sheriff fires deputy and person who does audio recoding. Down to a sheriff, deputy and a dispatcher. Dispatcher quits a month later. This week the deputy gets busted for larceny for stealing panties from a home. PANTIES!! Then there is the Sunland Park elected mayor in jail but can't be mayor because he can't take oath from jail and judge wont visit to administer oath. He was in jail for sending a lap dancer to his opponent, filming it secretly, trying to extort opponent. He was still elected mayor after these events. Small town New Mexico politics are great!

Yes, but judging from your post, you're a reasonably intelligent person with common sense. This thread is about stupidityness.

I might have gone the wrong direction with my rebuttal, but that character is as far of a departure from a slack-jawed yokel I could think of. I'd rather hang out at a party hosted by him than someone like Cleetus from the Simpsons.

There's some truthiness in his stupidityness observation, but when you combine July 4th drunkeness, fireworks & drought conditions, stupidityness will always win out.

It may not be in my business to protect others from their own stupidityesness, but it is when their stupididity can torch a few thousdand acres, homes, etc.

Pretty much every place around me that was doing fireworks has canceled it. ont know if its from the weather conditions or all the power outages. I think the closest place to me is downtown DC. And the hell if I am ever going back down there since they started to fence in the mall last year for "safety". Fark that noise.
