Obama does not develop the budget. The budget is developed by your Representative in Washington with the concurrence of the Senate. To blame Obama for this is anything but Christ-like. There are many, many parading around in the halls of Congress who claim to be not only Christian. Their me, myself, and my attitude certainly does not portray a Chist centered life of that we may well be assured. Other than this, I agree with the premise of the petition.
strange...yer slamming this administration for the cuts but NO mention of the greedy Republican dominated House of Representatives who have worked very hard and successfully to cripple the Nation's infrastructure.
I will happily sign a petition that properly identifies the myopia of the GOP as the actually reason for the forest services short comings.
The damage that has been done to the area is horrible, everything should be done to stop the fires.
If you had enough money to fly over my country dropping your bombs on us 72 days and nights, you should save few barrels of gasoline to help your people in real trouble! That should be your real way in a struggle and fight for peace in the world...sweep in front of your doors, and than you can give yourself a right to KNOCK on my!
this is really needed now, not years from now...
Having traveled this area over 12 years of full time RVing it makes me cry to see so much being destroyed due to lack of resources. We can send billions overseas to help others but not take care of our own right here in the US. It just makes me sick.
Based on recent news reports, we definitely need to update our fleet.
Please help !!!
More tankers and better land use manegement needed. There are too many homes encroaching into high fuel areas + climate change enhanced droughts = more fires, more damage and more cost and potential loss of lives. As a former wild land firefighter fund the USFS Aerial attack program.
