Beneath The Fold

I'm not certain who was paying attention, but the fireworks for July 4th will very likely be much more reserved this year. Dear reader, you might ask, will this be caused by a lack of patriotism? Or maybe, it will be some grand protest by the part of the country that thinks the Administration is going in the wrong direction. While both of these are interesting ideas to be examined; neither is at the root of the problem.

There was a major explosion that destroyed 20 warehouses full of fireworks on February 14th of this year. Does anyone want to guess where this might have occurred? You guessed it.... This problem happened in China. China is not only buying the soul of this nation, one treasury note at a time, but they apparently can ruin our independence day rituals at the drop of a cigarette.
