Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Fireworks

by lewwaters

For being such a young country, America is steeped in tradition and most Americans despise giving them up. Americans enjoy their traditions and celebration and at one time, stood up for them against any who would seek to destroy any of those.

Can you recall the outrage across America when there was a Baseball Strike and no games? Have you listened as we are told that eating hot dogs are bad for us? Would you stand for a ban on Mom’s Apple Pie?

No, like other Americans, you would strongly oppose any such banning of a favorite pass time for most Americans.

But curiously, another long held tradition has been slowly chipped away at and even outright banned in some regions and Americans remains silent, obediently falling in line and doing as they are told. Celebrating our Independence from Britain with our own fireworks is dying before our very eyes as municipalities and busybodies who don’t like them convince people they are better off giving up the long held tradition and allowing their elected leaders to show them such displays, provided you can handle the crowds or even get into whatever venue they are set off at.

This blog previously showed that Probst is known for such campaign tactics at Where Did Tim Probst’s Pledge of a “Clean Campaign” go?

What has to be desperation on Probst’s part, he seems to know have doubled down on such dirty campaign tactics.

Probst, violating his previous pledge against mudslinging, after declining to meet Senator Benton for an open debate on issues, unless the venue is in his favor, has opened up a “Fact Checking Don Benton” page on his website.

As we have seen previously, when Democrats decide to “fact Check” their opponents, “facts” are likely to be the last thing you will find. Tim Probst so called “Fact Check” page is no different.
