Feds Force Michigan Town to Cancel July 4th Fireworks

Thanks to the federal government, the Torch Lake, Michigan July 4th fireworks show will be a dud. In fact, it won’t even happen.

9 & 10 News reports:



“Organizers didn’t comply with a federal rule, so now the holiday tradition has to be canceled. The rule states that when anyone buys shells and fireworks, they have to be brought to town the day of the show. They cannot be moved ahead of time and left overnight,” the news site reports.

The rule was reportedly changed after the Boston Bombings.

Resident Douglas Colwell told the news station the July 4th fireworks show has happened every year since the early 1900s.

Town leaders are apparently rolling over and accepting the dictates from the feds.

Torch Lake’s most famous resident is progressive filmmaker Michael Moore, who has a swank 10,000 square foot house on the waterfront.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
