PULL THE PLUG ON THE INTERNET!! The growth of social media is the real reason why more non-residents are coming to our precious fireworks day. Eliminate the internet and you will eliminate all parking and traffic problems in Long Beach as we know it. In all seriousness, I just scanned through some comments on my politicizing fireworks rant. Some of you are so consumed with politics that it must be eating you alive. Well, I might as well go onto site news while I’m at it. One of you accused me of censoring your comment. I check the spam box and found this:
Fireworks sucked. Too many people. Democrats suck. We need Republicans to take back the city and stop promoting lb so much!!! Nowhere to park. Roads congested. Worst night ever. If you had a lousy time at the fireworks last night…. Remember in November and vote Republican!
There is your precious comment, LB Needs GOP. I’m calling you out because you’re obviously anonymous. Way to really add to a conversation. You actually just proved my point: Everything that happens in Long Beach is about politics, even fireworks day. I actually just took a constipated dump in my Long Beach-home toilet. I blame the dems for struggle I had pushing it out. Probably those new trees are triggering allergies, thus effecting my digestive system. I will remember this come November.
