CreamFilling: StrikitRich: $500 a year for fire coverage?  My local volunteer fire department only charges $75 a year and they have a new fire house and modern equipment.

You know why they call it a volunteer fire department?


They're all from Tennessee?

The Envoy: dfenstrate: Bucky Katt: How are all the tax cuts and small government working out for you?

Take a good look at the area, the population density, the tax base, and the average income, and tell us how you could arrange fire coverage better.

Lefties. Full of snark and condencesion, only to reveal themselves as incompetent when in charge.

What's "condencesion"?


It's the second highest form of patriotic, after descent.

Not a problem.  The homeowner just has to show up at the fire station uninvited.  Wash some windows, pick a few weeds out of the lot, and submit a $20,000 cleaning bill.

Peter von Nostrand: Remember those FF's denied LODD benefits?


Why would Final Fantasy deny Lord of the Devil Dogs benefits to firefighters? That doesn't even make sense.

FormlessOne: Bootstrappy!"Unincorporated area without fire coverage" = "billed for services rendered". This is exactly what teabaggers want, so why all the pearl-clutching?


Because it's only okay when it happens to someone else. Once it happens to them it's all like ZOMG! Why you no take care of me, gubermint?!

Strange. I pay taxes and I get "free" police and fire.
I wonder why people complain so much about paying taxes.

/yes, I saw that he paid taxes. Yes, I saw that he was getting billed by the second responders. Yes, I think they should go to hell. Yes I think they are trying to screw him over.

FTFA: Arizona State Senator Chester Crandell admitted that fire coverage in Arizona's rural areas is a mess, "Having county islands that have no service in, in uh, fireboards that are just packing up and leaving, going bankrupt... It's certainly something that needs to be addressed."

How are all the tax cuts and small government working out for you?

FTFA: Surprise firefighters arrived at the house within 13 minutes and it took Rural Metro 24 minutes to arrive after the call. Their the closest firehouse is 20 miles away, Assessing the situation, neighbor Brian Repp said, "They got here late and his house is totally gone. OK. Then they're going to charge him $20,000 and they let his house go.

As best I can tell from this farking trainwreck of a sentence, even if we assume the first responders were sitting in the truck waiting for an emergency call, they still managed to average 93 mph on the way to the scene.
