kwame: I have to come back to this because it's so incredibly dumb.
MrHappyRotter: I guess there's enough evidence that he couldn't really claim that he didn't start the fire, it was always burning since the world's been turning?
hardinparamedic: xanadian: So, what would the forest service people and the fire fighters have been doing if the fire hadn't happened? Would they still have their jobs and being paid for it, but just not fighting the wildfire? I think it's wrong that they're getting MY tax dollars *and* charging some old dude at the same time. It's like being paid twice for doing one job.Most wildland firefighters are actually volunteers/paid-on-incident that have passed the physical and wildland training which the National Forrest Service requires. (Which is no joke.)They don't have thousands of men just setting around somewhere on payroll.
HighlanderRPI: I'm more interested to see what makes an 'Upscale' Western town? Are the saddles all gilded in silver and gold?
Dragonflew: They also don't put out fires with their bare hands
dittybopper: If you don't actually intend or expect to collect on the bill, then don't farking send the bill in the first place.The only intention at that point is to screw the guy who made a mistake. An *OLD* guy. Who might be a little age-related forgetful.What is to stop an old guy like that with nothing more left to lose at that point from intentionally starting multiple fires because fark you for sending a $6 million dollar bill?
