Kansas City Illegal Fireworks Trash Amnesty
Kansas City 4th of July features a great many contradictions but an obvious bit of cleanup hypocrisy has been overlooked by a great many residents who regard local corruption and hypocrisy as an integral part of day-to-day local life.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY ILLEGAL FIREWORKS TRASH AMNESTY TACITLY ADMITS THAT NEARLY EVERYONE IN THIS TOWN IS BREAKING THE LAW AND SHOOTING OFF FIREWORKS AMID THE 4TH OF JULY!!!
A reminder . . .
Infozine: KCMO Offices Closed July 4; Trash Amnesty Granted
The streets are filthy with used fireworks after the 4th and locals desperately need help cleaning the mess so this "amnesty" is absolutely needed . . . But it's also a sign that most Kansas city residents brazenly ignore this section of local muni-code in favor of dangerous good times. The trend transcends most demographic lines BUT watching money literally go up in smoke as always been a pastime of local po'folk.
And so, this tradition of Kansas City "resistance" and All-American celebration reminds us that laws are just ideas and only as good as the people who write, enforce and ignore them for worse and sometimes better.
You decide . . .
