Harmless shenanigans. This coal rolling thing isn't harmless if a blinded driver hits somebody, to say nothing of what those fumes do to anyone's health or the air quality.
Is this supposed to be a joke? lmao I'd rather be around someone rolling coal than have water balloons or other objects pelted at me. Because it was something you didn't agree with you get to assault and harass people and it's just "harmless shenanigans"? But in the same breath you berate people for doing something similar with their trucks?

You're quite the mental gymnast.

Nothing says "I'm not a veteran, I was too much of a pansy" like a lifted diesel pickup with a punisher sticker and a huge exhaust tip or stack. Add some dumb looking 24 inch black wheels and an assortment of flags, maybe a set of plastic testicles hanging from the hitch receiver and a skull diff cover... bingo you've completed the look.

No. I was a kid, and kids do dumb things. I would not do this now, although I still don't like the disgusting signs. Note that my opinion hadn't anything to do with overall agreement with their position, I am merely talking about the methods by which people make a point. They carry nasty images of carnage, I thought that water balloons were a relatively harmless thing (seeing as how my friends and I threw them at one another for FUN--assault, really? Were you ever a child?) and I think that clouds of blinding, choking black smoke are far nastier. I would rather be splashed with a little water than have to try to breathe awful black smoke. And I said nothing of "other objects" pelted at anyone. I never even put anything more offensive than clean water in those balloons.
