cabbyman: NeverDrunk23: hubiestubert: Didn't we go through this with Colorado a few weeks ago with the fire?

Emergencies happen. Best be prepared for it. Go ahead and cut their funding, and see how that works for in November.

Because you can be for damns sure that folks WILL bring it up...

Like the fires in Texas and cutting the funding from firefighters, we can just pray disaster away!

The GOP wouldn't be able to get away with this so much if their base wasn't so goddamn stupid and self-destructive.

So we should have an armed government agent in every single public meeting place so we can rest easy.

Gotcha...


You just proved his point one post after he made that. Congrats.

ultraholland: Why is it that god is only thanked for cleaning up the mess?


When God see's it fit to let us suffer or die, it's not to be questioned. It's both part of his plan and not his fault. (besides, it's not in our place to put blame on God for worldly events, that's blaspheme). You can scream and cry and ask why, but never blame.

When ever anything good ever happens, thank God. Because it's all him. Even if you can clearly see it was acts of men making the good happen... that's just God working through them.

Duh.

randomjsa: You're deeply concerned about how this will affect money flowing from unions to Democrat campaigns... I mean... about the workers themselves, that's it, you're concerned about them. Really.


Come on, dude, you're better at trolling than this! Why not comment about how the service cuts are necessary to provide better services elsewhere, and no one could have anticipated this, but the service cuts would not have made the responders take any longer to get there, then mention the union thing?

It's like you're not even putting any thought into it anymore.

Kinda sad, really, you used to get so many bites. What has happened?

You know we have Obamacare now, so if you need to see someone to get your troll mojo back, it's covered.

Gyrfalcon: Mrbogey: Gyrfalcon: Also, while some states probably COULD tax their residents sufficiently to afford basic services, some cannot. You want to penalize Wyoming or North Dakota in terms of public services merely because their tax base is inadequate?

Apparently their tax base was adequate enough to form a state. Their tax base is adequate enough for the feds to tax them still. Almost every state in the union had an "adequate" tax base before income taxes were even started. Why don't they now? It seems to me it's more of a jealous spouse argument at this point ("Do you know how much I do for you, you ingrate?").

So you would be okay with your state abandoning federal revenue, disassociating itself from the benefits and detriments of the federal government, and then raising your state taxes accordingly to provide the services that they currently use federal monies for?

Seriously, I want to know if that's your answer. Bearing in mind that your state must now pay for all interstate repair, manage its own air transportation and interstate shipping, provide all social security and other federally-funded state programs, etc. The state will now have to bear those costs--and that means you'll have to pay more state taxes. But that's good with you?


there it is. we all knew it was coming.

you aren't for all subsidies I'm for, so I'm going to ignore the fact that my scenario is utterly impossible, and pretend you see no value in having a participatory federal government at all and then post this picture of a 6-year-old working a power loom in 1879.

Imagine if first responders were privatized:

The police would say, "sorry, not in our jurisdiction." "Oops, you haven't paid your monthly bill, movie theater."

EMTs: "check their wallets to see if they have our card." "Hey, this guy subscribed to Al's EMT service. Hey Al, here's another one for you!"

falcon176: guys can we please keep the politics out of this? I mean people died, and also this article isn't insulting the libs.


Our innocence is so far gone there is no such thing as decency and respect on a board on anonymity.

We spent years politicizing one of the biggest tragedies in our nations history with each side spinning it to their own benefit and their opponents detriment. We are still plunged into 2 wars we don't even bother with paying attention to, with the exception of yellow ribbon magnets.

We've not experienced nearly as much death as previous generations, but with our technology we are (all of us across the nation) exposed to death in a way previous generations can't even imagine.

We are desensitized. The world got small and with it we see all the death around the globe. It's terrible these people died, we can all agree on that... but our true reactions and feelings can be blunted because we've learned very well how to do that. We've become accustomed to taking these things in stride and placing them behind us quickly, much like a doctor or mortician or anyone else that gets an overload of grief and morbidity.

It's a natural reaction. Sure, some of these guys are just being dicks, but there is a reason. And unless you are in this town, or know some of these people, it's really hard for the reality of the situation to hit home.


I thought I'd have enough decency to type that out instead of just saying "welcome to fark"

So that wealthy districts have good services and poorer ones - the ones that most need those services - don't. That's a good idea.

Meh, many of those poorer places are Republican strongholds. If the right actually got their avowed desires they'd run themselves out of supporters in a generation.

I gotta say, I agree with the orange-colored fellow. I mean, do you really need all those policemen? In a case like this, rather than rely on a government funded agency to show up and save you, shouldn't all good citizens exercise their god-given Second Amendment rights and pull their concealed-carry weapons from the holsters attached to their bootstraps and take care of the problem themselves? Nurses and doctors? Pffft. Just socialism if you ask me. Take a few first aid courses and learn how to do that shiat for yourself. Why do you stupid libs insist on making other people do the work?

While praising these brave men and women in public, privately a majority of Republicans support cutting federal government for first responders.

And now you know how soldiers feel. Oh, we fund the shiat out of your operations and praise you when it suits us, but we don't actually give a sh*t about you.

The GOP had the audacity to use veteran's benefits as a hostage in a debate to help rich people pay less taxes...all while still waving that flag and telling liberals like myself that I "don't support the troops."

Now that a Democrat has basically stolen the "tough on terror" plank from the GOP platform, it's my hope that more people will see the GOP's repulsive pimping of the America soldier for what it really is - cheap propaganda.

If you are an American soldier and you vote Republican for any reason other than to protect the 65 million a rich uncle just willed to you, you need your head examined.
