Has no one mentioned the fireworks sale in New Hampshire? Guess not too many other New Englanders here.

Fireworks are banned in Maine, but it is always a July 4th celebration to drive to New Hampshire, but a shit load of fireworks and drive them into Maine... :)

I was thinking the same thing; likewise for Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and every other state where anti-labor legislation has been forced down people's throats.

Confidential is on the ball here, too.

Seems to be a very free-market oriented, Randian definition of "freedom." I wonder how the recent enacting of single-payer health care in Vermont would effect their state's ranking? Big bad government taking away the people's freedom to...die because they can't afford medical treatment?

Ayn Rand was a sociopath.

If it wasn't for Fireworks and the Power Plant, Seabrook New Hampshire would still be a small fishing/clamming town.

Before I moved to Mass., my dad and his cousins use to go crazy buying fireworks in NH. I grew up in Hampton, one of the few towns that "technically" doesn't allow them. You just get ticket though.

I've been trying to get a commune going for a while, but it would not be in the United States. Too much crap here.

A solar-powered gray-water-recycling bicycle-only organic-veggie and free-range-chicken isolated esoteric underground hip-hop commune in the middle of nowhere, Michigan..

We'll have falcons and carrier pigeons fly into the main cities to secure the sundries..

We'll name the city anticom.mune and have a bronze statue of sole in the middle of the town square..

And we'll have a holographic Sarah Palin for a village idiot...

Hang on i'm not joining some crazy cult until i know its crazy enough.

Are we gonna be peaceful, or when the law comes to take away the kids can we go out Waco style.

Do we worship the moon or anything? Coz like, how'd it get there? Who put it there? You can't explain that.

Can i take multiple wives or will that be frowned upon?

I suggest we wear animal heads for hats, coz, well, it just looks kewl.

Whoa, this isn't a cult. This is a survivor's sanctuary, where safety, satiation, and shelter are the top priorities. Loose cannons are not welcome, because then there will be a power struggle that will jeopardize, if not ruin totally, the entire community. Headgear is up to the head, of course, so feel free to sport whatever roguish attire you can scavenge or fashion.
