Mid-week Stupidity Div (Orange menace subsection)
In 2009, Fourth of July fireworks at the Mt Rushmore National Memorial were suspended. The Black Hills National Forest was in the grip of the Pine Beetle infestation which was killing trees at an unprecedented rate and increasing the fire danger.
Well, the beetles are gone (they'll be back in 25 years or so) and fireworks will once again commence at the Memorial on July 4th of this year.
Previously fire suppression crews had to be stationed in the adjacent areas to put down the blazes triggered by the display. The chemicals associated with the fireworks also have impacted the soil and groundwater.
Anyhow, yesterday, Stable Jenius announced that he might possibly attend this year's display (Please, please don't let this happen).
He did mention that no one knew why they were terminated and went on to observe, “What can burn? It’s stone. Nobody knew why.”
So much for the sanity absent in the Oval Office. I'm not even sure that IMPOTUS could find South Dakota on a map.
Hopefully, by July Fourth, no one will want to see him.
