    Not to make light of it, but was the mayor present?

    This man’s next option is to go to Samantha Bee and Jon Stewart.

    How about taking a look at the insane coddling of our population?

    “Council member, Wendy Bredhold, expressed concern because of veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    ‘There’s a lot of information out there about veterans having difficulties with fireworks,’ said Bredhold.” (

    If a firework display one night of the year could effect sufferers of PTSD so badly to need this ordinance. They ought to consider removing our car horns and radios as well as significant muffler enforcement, too.

    Any ordinance that can so quickly be changed at the whim of an individuals request, probably has absolutely no business being left in place!
