God forbid that people come to our city and buy things at our stores and restaraunts. We wouldn't want them to come to our city and buy any of our vacant houses or relocate a busniness to our vacant commercial properties either. Maybe someone could call Google and have San Ramon taken off Google maps. Can CalTrans relocate 680 around the city? We must stop the infiltration of strangers to our city!
People, can we start thinking about the bigger picture?
(ready to move to a city that has fireworks)

I don't think that San Ramon residents need to be overly concerned about outsiders attending your private fireworks festival. The outsiders will most likely be in your homes stealing your belongings DODO BIRDS!

just because somebody is an "outsider" doesn't mean they aren't clever thieves...tee hee

It's not likely to rain much between today - July 4th, 2014! Fireworks could set off a few very cute brush fires which could possibly light up the sky for outsiders who live waaaaaaaaaaaaaay far awaaaaaay so that all of them wouldn't insist upon coming to San Ramon.

is that cool or what?

inidentally, what color are the "outsiders"? just axing...

I have lived in San Ramon for over 30 years and the fireworks were always a part of the 4th of July celebration. People need to calm down and enjoy the aerial display.
Dave has the right idea. If people are so worried about crowds, stop building up Bolling Canyon Rd. Get rid of Bishop Ranch, there are a lot of "outsiders" commuting here everyday.

If our greedy politicians didn't try to pack as many homes as possible into San Ramon this wouldn't be an issue. I am still trying to find the benefit for long term residents. All I see is more traffic, cancelled traditions, destruction to our scenery and a housing bubble...

How are "our greedy politicians" packing homes into San Ramon. The California State Assembly and former Governor Swarzenegger (sp?) mandated housing densities. How did our politicians cause the "housing bubble," which by the way is bubbling up again?

Jim, if you find living in San Ramon so distressful now, MOVE!
