Freedom, or stupidity?

By johnboy - 14 July 2008 20

Well it’s not like I don’t give you all plenty of stories without video, so no whingeing please.

In this effort kieranbennettmedia shoots fireworks at himself to make a point for freedom.

Is this an argument for? or against?

What’s Your opinion?

Makes you proud to be a Canberran, eh.

If he was a real man he would have wedged the fireworks in his arsecrack.

We do have a very narrow revenue base here, and the fireworks mob are very active in making their case.

It’s like most banned things….more about the people who use it and how they use it than the thing itself.

I love fireworks. I wish they were legal and you could but them big bangin’ things.

Fact is that they bangers are illegal and – guess what? You can still get them. I live in Brissy now and guess what? Not as many but still PLENTY of fireworks – and the illegal ones too – are around the streets.

Question is – why are they still legal in ACT and NT? Is it the revenue they raise?

He’s fat and needs to go on a diet.

Well, there is a flaw with the comparison of fireworks with steak-knives, in that one is an item with a practical purpose and the other is purely for entertainment value. So, the strength of the reasons required for the banning fireworks is lowered, when compared with other dangerous objects which have an actual functional purpose, because no one will actually be inconvenienced by the removal of fireworks. Just a little more bored.

I know this about the Nanny State and freedom of the individual to do what is right for them…. which is a great idea, up until the point at which the freedom of my labmate to not be shackled by oppressive OH&S rules collides with my freedom to not to die of cyanide poisoning.

Fireworks look better at night.

I encourage him buying steak knives.

I don’t see a problem with fireworks, really. Sure some people are dickwads. But dickwads do their dickwadding with everything they can get their hands on.

Stop posting threads about you brother JB

That clown obviously hasn’t read the apostrophe thread. But, then, there’s no surprises there.

If people were able to let fireworks off in the allowed times then that would be fair play. Sadly, there are too many dickwads who f-ck it up for the minority who do play by the rules. Given that is the case, if fireworks were to be banned I’d be pretty happy.

Well the aim wasn’t very good, only hit the tie directly.

Hopefully he did the Darwin thang and shot them at his jeans zipper.

Freedom of stupidity perhaps?
