Bombs bursting in air- why I hate the 4th of July

I live in little Afghanistan.

Starting a few days ago- and for the next week- I’ll have to listen to fools setting off fireworks, shooting guns, and generally being jerks. The fact that fireworks are sold around here when the closest state where they are legal is Missouri is still a mystery.

The police do nothing. My dogs are miserable. Unfortunately, Darwin isn’t solving the problem- because for the last 26 years- we continue to have the same wild west show. Yet, if I drive over to Oakwood, all is peaceful and quiet.

Would someone remind me why we pay taxes in Dayton? Why are laws so easy to ignore here?
