Don’t like July 4th anymore. I do support all the troops forever. However, the selfish large loud noisemakers at 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. by selfish people have ruined it for me. Many of us have responsibilities at early hours and don’t appreciate the midnight self servers. Fire your expensive fireworks in your own house so you can enjoy the noise, light and smell up close and personally with your windows closed. Man up and do in your front yard so the police can talk to you about your civic rights and give you a citation. Spend your extra money supporting the returning troops and their families.
