Unfortunately, this isn’t a Joke!
Kids this weekend were shut off from a tradition I enjoyed for so many years growing up in Va. Beach.
Sliding or just rolling down a snowy Mt. Trashmore made for memories. Memories our children won’t share. The city has plenty of employees to man the blockades to make sure the citizens that paid for Mt. Trashmore park, can’t use it.
Additionally, our uptight city management and council has already taken every imaginable fun and independence out of Independence Day. Fireworks and firecrackers are illegal in Virginia Beach. This past year even sparklers were made illegal!
Thanks for protecting us from ourselves City manager Spore and Council! Thanks for nothing!!
In their attempt to turn Virginia Beach residents into helpless children and wards of the state, city council and management forgot this is America! They forgot what freedom and independence is all about. Just as there WERE fireworks set off by many VB residents, the closing of Mt. Trashmore did nothing, but move the location.
Want to see what VB residents did instead of sliding down Mt.Trashmore? There were many alternatives. Some of them far more dangerous. Some involved crossing dangerous traffic traversing icy roads!
So, do our patronizing “representatives” on city council see what little is accomplished? Do they realize that outlawing such things only leads to training the citizenry to have disdain for the rule of law?
Call up your city council or email them! Tell them to butt out, or kiss your “Red, White, and Blue”!
