    I posted a gigantic paper discussing how actions were already well under way to solve the issue. It details how the reason this fire was considered so extraordinary is because river fires were largely a thing of the past - because river pollution was being handled.

    It also talked about how this particularly fire was so puny compared to prior fires because the pollution was being reversed

    thanks for proving you are just a shit stain wiping your shit all over the place rather then contributing

    Look Zym, Do you honestly think I care what you think of me??

    I asked a simple question, a few times now...

    You are not required to answer & that's alright, we can both live w/ that..hats-off-salute-smiley-emoticon.gif

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    Nope, I think we had to get closer to Dallas. We went to see Chip and Joanna, instead, what a rip off.
    That’s why I’m so screwed up, because I had a father who pushed me so hard,” Trump acknowledged in 2007, in a brief and rare moment of self-awareness.

    Okay, I think we've seen that show a couple of times. I didn't know they had a whole thing like that that you could visit. Not impressed, eh?

    Thanks! We have a house up there. Other than having to drive through Sacramento to get there (had to get my jab in at Bill) it really is heaven.

    iSs-alright, I live in the burbs, not the city & be safe if you stop off in cow town for a bite.

    No, sadly, products are way overpriced.

    Too bad there isn't a way around that wouldn't harsh your good mellow on your way there (and back). What all do you guys do? Kayak? Fish? Just zone out? Hike?

    I knew it was a mistake take off your gag. Time and again you demonstrate that you have one-level, simplistic thinking and are incapable of seeing anything other than your twisted ideology. Goodbye.
    States do not race to the top, but to the bottom. Like 2 states removed usury and banking laws to lure banks and it worked. Then all credit card companies opened an office or a post office box there and the whole country suffered from credit card and banking abuse.
    States rights sounds good but dies under scrutiny. It is a great way to give even more power to national corporations. They will spend a fortune backing candidates who will end regulations and give them tax breaks. It is easier and cheaper to overpower a state or local election.

    There are some things done best at a local level. Schools, police and fire depts., libraries, etc. But things that can affect others outside of a jurisdiction -- like your example of banking regulations, pollution, and so on -- are best managed under the federal umbrella. Example: We live near Lake Superior. The Lake touches three states plus Canada. If a factory in MN starts dumping toxic waste into the Lake, it will eventually affect WI and MI, as well as another country. If MN has lax regulations regarding waste dumping, who else will step in and put a stop to it?

    I love them, too! Where we live, my son and I do what we call fireworks chasing. A lot of people fire them off from their boats in the harbors and inlets. We try to follow the noise as best we can to find them. It's a lot of fun!

    The air in America has been getting cleaner and cleaner due to environmental regiulation and admin bosses doing their jobs. Trump is running the first admin with air,land, and water getting dirtier. Apparently rightys like that. Obama had a physist running the Det of Energy, then had a nuclear engineer. Trump chose Rick Perry, This illustrates the difference between Trump and other admins. Trump is a clown.
