The state is broken and running into the ground at record speed and all these losers can do is worry about fireworks? Vote everyone of them out and find someone that wants to work on the real problems to replace them. Push for term limits to be put on the ballot for the next election.

"The city is concerned that any legal fireworks could increase the threat of terrorism, wrote Joseph Garba, the state legislative director for the city, in a memo to state lawmakers."

The only threat of terrorism is from lawmakers who take away our constitutional rights!

P.S. we did not win our independence from the Brits with sparklers!!!

WE don't elect these clowns, the elections are rigged!

WE need to work harder to get our elections back under the control of the people and not the lobbyists!!!


Look up ALEC and see how they took our vote & rights away from us!!!

Rochester's Finest in Blue are just too busy measuring the distance between a car tire and the curb to bother enforcing quality of life issues, like ...

barking dogs, motorcycles, and {insert deity of choice here}-awful crap blasting from boom boxes on wheels. Rather than add to the list of things cops ignore anyway, we may as well make fireworks legal.

Kinda like prohibition, if enough of us do it, we may get them to change the laws.
