THIS issue is one of the most serious we need to deal with in great urgency. Get to it, no matter what side of the aisle you sit on...if everything burns up while you sit around with your fingers up your butts trying to blow bubbles...OH WAIT....then you can apply for disaster funds! This country is not prepared for fighting a war on firestorms. Think about that tonight and tomorrow.....

it seems my post to the ill informed Mr. John Cohen has disappeared.
yes we need more Heavy tankers to fight fires. but don't blame the DOD they didn't cause this issue. The blame belongs right in the Oval Office.

oh this "joker" goes to USC Santa Cruz so he's been spending way too much time listening to his professors than people in the real world. He even still believes in Global warming after all the data has been debunked as being faked

The reduction in disaster response is part of the package we got when we voted in the the no new revenues, tax reduction, government shutdown, specialists. Thar is especially the House of Reps. When we "accept risk" by cutting disaster services the we have to accept the results. It is just like your budget at home.

I'm not signing this petition. I was simply responding to the sky is falling comments that I saw on that posting. The Forest Service and National Parks have been a favorite targets of budget cutters for years. You get what you pay for (or not). That is why people have the right to buy fire insurance or not. Right?

I have seen our younger drivers throw cigarettes out there car windows. Why I have asked? They answer Because they don't want to smell up their cars? Most cars today do not have ash trays, why cant they wait to have a cigarette when they are not driving! Dumb! I have seen these roadside burnt brush spots along the highways.

I won't sign any petition to increase "resources" to protect rich people's homes unless it includes full health insurance for these firefighters. Otherwise, let those ivory towers burn!

speaking of scorched earth, we would not let any foreign enemy do to our land and people what man-made global warming is doing to us at this very time. We need the leadership in Congress and in the White House to declare that global warming and its causes are the moral equivalent of war and to provide the leadership and dedicate the resources to rapidly transition to a clean energy economy.
