Push by anti-American anti-Patriot lawyer and Judge risks 4th of July fireworks celebrations across California. Another nail in the coffin of the America we love, and another victory for communism/socialism and anti-liberty.

Are we in a war for liberty or not?

What started as a battle over fireworks shows led to a sweeping legal victory Friday for environmentalists that could stymie a wide range of events needing city permits, from the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon to birthday parties held at parks.

“According to the strictest interpretation of this, jumpy-jumps and everything else would be subject to environmental review if this ruling stands,” said lawyer Robert Howard, who represented the La Jolla Community Fireworks Foundation in the case. “It’s a breathtaking ruling.”

Tony Manolatos, a spokesman for City Councilman Kevin Faulconer, stood by the council’s exemption for fireworks. “I think banning fireworks on the Fourth of July is un-American,” he said, “and I think the majority of San Diegans would agree.”

Gonzalez has repeatedly said that protecting water quality and coastal species is patriotic

Gonzalez is patriotic for communism and socialism, and defeating traditional American patriotism. He is an enemy of traditional America.

The infamous "they" will find any reason to end any and all traditions which support the freedom and liberty we older Americans hold near and dear to our hearts. It is no coincidence that "mental" is the last part of environmental. Make no mistake, every citizen of the United States is currently being reprogrammed to accept the commands of a totalitarian regime which intends to force compliance by laziness. If a permit is required, they are banking on you being too lazy to apply for it, and looking forward to the revenues incurred by you hosting an unpermitted event. Get accustomed to this crap, because "they" are also banking on us being to lazy to stand up against them. Sadly, I believe the ball is in their court.. So far as Americans we've done nothing but prove "them" right as things continue downhill without a fight. But nonetheless, everything we love is dying, we do nothing, just post another comment on ATS. I'm guilty......

You didn't provide a link so here's one.

"I'm not even allowed to paddle my surfboard over there. I'm not allowed to boogie board there, I'm only allowed to swim over this area, but yet the city believes it's OK to turn a blind eye to the tons of chemicals that are shot off over these waters," Gonzalez said.

It's not about patriotism. It's not about who loves the country more. It's about our environmental laws and the potential impacts to our waterways and our species from these shows in certain locations," he said.

As a socialist I don't see how any of this has anything to do with socialism.

If you don't really care about protected habitats then I can see where you'd have a problem with the ruling. Granted, this concern over birthday parties and parades is specifically stated as "the strictest interpretation of this."

I don't think the sky is falling just yet.
