Protesters block road leading to Mount Rushmore ahead of Trump event, approximately 15 arrested
Demonstrators blocked road with vans and removed wheels from vehicles

About 15 protesters were arrested Friday after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore hours before President Trump was scheduled to give remarks to kick off Independence Day weekend....

.... One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!”

The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening's fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff.

The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly.
Police later used pepper spray on several protesters to break up the standoff and tow trucks were brought in to remove the vans blocking the road. Arrests were made after protesters ignored a police-imposed deadline to leave.

My wife’s aunt is there right now. I’m sure we’ll hear all about it next week.

Took part in the 350+ boat Trump/Pence Boat Parade this morning on Lake LBJ in Texas. What a ride! This video doesn’t do it justice....

Well all those fireworks manufacturers had to unload their product since almost all of the public fireworks shows were cancelled. I'd say they did a bang up job.

I thought we were crazy with fireworks in the US until I experienced Xmas Eve and New Years Eve in El Salvador.

My next door neighbor was setting off dynamite in his back yard until 0300. It was a good Xmas morning because my kids slept until 10 .... they didn’t get to sleep until 0400

Yes, as of 2017 were made legal. Big debate, as PA is getting lots of $$$ from 12% fireworks tax (in addition to 6% sales tax).

You must be more than 150 feet away from any “occupied structure” — defined as “any structure, vehicle or place adapted for overnight accommodation” or business — whether or not any people are present there.
You cannot set them off on public or private property without the express permission of the owner.
You cannot set them off from, within, or toward a building or vehicle.
You cannot set them off if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
And, keep in mind, local municipalities may have regulations that differ from state or federal guidelines.
I would say most weren't set off legally...but my township you probably would have had to have 10x the amount of cops writing tickets all night long to get it stopped..

This potentially explains a lot:

Trump cheated on his SAT by paying someone to take it for him, according to Mary Trump's new book.

Coming from a woman who is a PhD clinical psychologist who knows Trump very well, this is good:
“Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for,” writes Mary Trump in the book. “Donald’s ego has been and is a fragile and inadequate barrier between him and the real world, which, thanks to his father’s money and power, he never had to negotiate by himself.”
From https://www.forbes.com/sites/jemimamcev ... 57377a5664.

If you voted for the guy...or if you have ANY desire for him to be President...you should be ashamed of yourself.

This woman is like a selling realtor touting a house because of curb appeal. Never mind if there is a poor electrical and plumbing system, mold, termite damage, radon, a developing sink hole in the back, etc. "Dammit, it looks good from here."

I don't see how you can catch the people in time. It's illegal on the beaches here and I've seen the cops quickly get the people who set them off.
