When I was a kid on the 4th of July the municipality would let the kids light and toss firecrackers, cherry bombs and M-80s into the playground sandbox. Today, $1000 fine for and firework of any kind.
As a teen the drinking age was 18 and driving age was 16 with no restrictions. Today the drinking age is 21 and teen driving has curfews and limits to passengers.
Seat belts are for your safety. On and on. Good thing we use today to celebrate our freedoms unlike those repressive Chicomms like those pictured above. Perhaps it is time for some old fashioned exercise of liberty.
And let us not forget why we fight for our freedom.
