Where to watch the fireworks

Original post made on Jul 2, 2010

Although many cities across the country have cancelled Fourth of July fireworks displays this year because of budget woes, the festive celebrations in the sky are very much alive in the Bay Area, including here in the Tri-Valley.

I have a difficult time, emotionally, celebrating Independence Day this year. Thanks to the Democrat party, America is teetering now on being a "welfare" economy. Obama's "transformational Change" is Changing America from Independence to Dependence on the Federal Government for subsistence. Democrats...the party of Dependence and Welfare and the Destruction of America. Yes, celebrate that.

Dear NoThanksToDemocrats, aka MoveOnMcNerney, aka BringBackIndependence:

The sun is shining, the kids are playing, and the fair is on. How about lightening up a bit and enjoying the sunshine? I guarantee that stepping away from the computer a bit will help things. One can hope that the grump isn't a permanent one.

We went to see the fireworks with family just like we do every year. This time around though -- just as the fireworks started, some insects (bees, wasps!! ?? I don't know) started attacking. My 4 year old got stung, so did my wife and in-laws - all multiple times.

Crazy night! I don't know if this was avoidable -- there is not much information available. KTVU website reports that about 100 people got stung and that is not nearly the number we saw hurt and stung at the emergency center. Others who were hurt just walked off - so hard to track the number.

Here is the sad part: THE PEOPLE WHO WORK AT THE FAIRGROUNDS KNEW OF THE BEEHIVE LONG BEFORE THE DAY OF FIREWORKS. I was there too it was awful. You wouldn't let a beehive stay in your own backyard for the safety of family so where's the common sense at Alameda County Fairgrounds.

Strike that $12/beer, what are they thinking?
