These terrible fires need attention now; even if it means calling out the National Guard...

If it was your back yard would you then be more interested in getting the proper planes to put out the fires?

I do not understand with all the ingenuity, engineering intelligence, and power we have in this country that the powers that be, which we vote for, PAY and support, the PUBLIC SERVANTS, who are supposed to run this country the way we VOTE them to, cannot put their egg heads together and design a water station pipeline through the Midwest to the West from the bulging and flooding Ms. River which has caused so much natural disaster through our countryside and strategically RELOCATE that water...

I do not understand with all the ingenuity, engineering intelligence, and power we have in this country that the powers that be, which we vote for, PAY and support, the PUBLIC SERVANTS, who are supposed to run this country the way we VOTE them to, cannot put their egg heads together and design a water station pipeline through the Midwest to the West from the bulging and flooding Ms. River which has caused so much natural disaster through our countryside and strategically RELOCATE that water to the rest of the country who need it so desperately when these fires break out EVERY SUMMER and also create so many JOBS and alleviate all this unnecessary destruction, pain and suffering, drought and flooding.....we can put a man on the Moon, but can't do something as simple as this and CREATE JOBS and better well being for our country and our citizens? The jobs and relief that would be created through the middle of the country from Mo to Ca, taxes, increase in prosperity, well being and opportunity resulting from this kind of project would be phenomenal and these kinds of disasters could be erased from our map across these wonderful United States......just an Independent thought on this Independence Day hoping to inspire some Independence and a Doable solution to some of what ails this country.........just saying!

If Obama can't afford to buy these planes then how was he able to bail out the biggest banks and give money to GM to build car factories in China? Please sign to urge him to take care of protecting "The People"!

It is really a serious concern and repeat every year. Their should be a permanent mechanism to cotrol the same.

It's a sad commentary on our times that we have the technology to fight these wildfires rageing through the West, but not the resourses. More air tankers should be made available for times like this to avert the terrible waste that this country now faces.
