Military Fireworks Show Cut, Even Though Local Company Volunteered To Do It For Free

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Military veterans are upset after the annual Camp Lejeune fireworks show for military members and their families was cut.

What makes it even worse: A Pittsburgh area company offered to do the show for free, but the government said, thanks, but no thanks.

The military says the show meant for more than 47-thousand Marines and Sailors was cancelled due to federal cutbacks.

Gallup: Republicans more proud to be American than Democrats

TOPICS: ANALYSIS BELTWAY CONFIDENTIAL
In recognition of Independence Day, Gallup has released a poll on whether American citizens are still proud to be American.

Ninety-three percent of Republicans indicate that they are “extremely/very proud” to be American while only 85 percent of Democrats feel the same way.

Eighty-one percent of political Independents indicate they are “extremely/very proud.”

Likewise, 89 percent of poll respondents who identified themselves as conservative are “extremely/very proud,” to be American compared to 76 percent of liberals.
No surprise here

That's sad. We all have to do our part even though it's hard sometimes. I remember when electricity started to go up so high and my hometown decided not to have Christmas lights one year. Now THAT sucked! We'll get through it though.
