    You have a selection of women of easy vitue at home, can I come over?

    That's a below the waist question. To be expected by...
    Pun intended?! 😂

    I only need the one damsel in residence (and not only is she definitely off limits, but being of a sporty inclination, she can take down any man with her bare hands, if the need arises). If you choose the right one, such is the way of things.

    In God we trust, personally I prefer to pay in cash instead of houses. And I don't want no woman that can whoop my **** because that cost extra.

    ...and make their policy and laws, but that's swinging into politics which we should avoid.

    Unfortunately one would think that when it comes to these sort of things, politics/agendas should take a back seat to fixing the problem first.

    If California wants federal money to fix this, then in my opinion at least show some good faith in doing everything you can on your own first. Make an effort...because on the face, they are asking for everyone else to help pay, while they hand out free stuff left and right.

    Is that asking too much ? I don't think so....and certainly California isn't the only state asking such things.

    It's the lack of logic to pursue agendas. You and I have it here in Illinois too. I just can't tell ya how bad Peoria is falling apart. People are leaving here left and right. Homeowners received a notice last week the we're on the hook for $35 a year to fund the lagging city pension fund. Roads here are some of the worst in the state and we're spending a million bucks for solar for the park district.

    Last year the city spent 300 plus grand for a consulting company to tell us what roads are bad. It's like remodeling your whole home inside and yet the roof still leaks.

    Knew a guy years back that didn't frequent them but visited one maybe once or twice a month. Told me it was cheaper than his previous wife. In my eyes he was a WINNER monetarily! :D

    Yea it's schittshow. I can't believe they hooked you up to pay for the pensions that you already paid for ....aaagain. I'm sure many more will be doing the same thing soon.

    Let’s see:

    1) The state of California really doesn’t care about the people who actually live some place with an address and actually pays taxes.
    2) The power companies don’t realize that there could be high winds, even though that this has only occurred regularly for at least the last 1,000 years.
    3) Since high winds have occurred the last 1,000 years, clearing away stuff that can burn isn’t really necessary, because it probably will never happen again.
    4) The people who live in California are generally nice, but they’re complete morons for voting for people who have made this situation possible.
    5) Aferburnt hates everybody and maybe 20 people can tolerate him. Haven’t actually seen an actual poll on this, just a guess.
    6) Bluefox didn’t need a go fund me account, because the steaks survived the power shut downs

    I think looking at the big picture, Bluefox should crank up the music, get some adult beverages of his choice, build a fire and cook some steaks, whilegnoring every law, rule, and regulation that says he can’t do it.

    I’ll chip in 20 for the new go fund me account.

    Government is just barely competent anywhere you go.
    This is a result of compromise. Welcome to the USA.
    The West coast is a source of a lot of new ideas, good and bad.
    Big cities anywhere are bastions of poor planning.
    And big school districts are always bad news.
    Stupid doesn't fly in smaller cities because of smaller budgets and
    more visibility. Slow change is better than fast change because you
    can monitor it. But quick changes are sexier because it gives people
    a warm and fuzzy.
    I don't hate California. But I don't want to live there. OR Dallas.
    Not too keen on Memphis a lot of days. All too big to function
    sanely.

    Most of Texas stupid in small towns involve guns and drinking.
    Yes, I'm familiar with rednecks. I was raised as one.
    They don't tap public budgets for it. Dallas could waste millions
    Just thinking about stuff. How about wasting a decade's worth of
    Public transit funding buying land that was toxic wasteland instead
    Of adding bus routes? Or a school district where people in charge
    Go to jail every year. Or use job applicant's social security numbers to
    Hire foreign workers. And then repeat it for two more years after being caught.
    Everyone in Dallas sends their kids to private school, or moved to Frisco or
    Plano.
    Anyone in mid size cities could jump in and make a difference.
    It wasn't hard to run into the mayor or a councilman.
    Note: my experience in Texas was in a town of 60,000.
    My rural experience was in Iowa. Hard to do anything there
    without everybody in town finding out about it 10 minutes
    After you did it.

    So....a MSM story here says a garbage truck with smoldering debris that dumped on the side of a road was to blame for this fire. Any truth to this ?

    If so, then this is once again human error, as idiotic as that is. Not climate change, not the power company, or any other scapegoat. I have a feeling many of the fires out there are more so from people being irresponsible than anything else.

    I know we like to throw a few darts at California, myself included, and rightfully so in most cases. However, what they do right, in wanting to preserve the natural beauty of the place, shows.

    Whenever I travel up the coast north of San Fran, you don't see a frickin' candy bar wrapper on the ground. If I go south, same thing....unless you hit the bigger cities like Santa Cruz.

    One can say, by wanting to preserve the natural beauty of the place, and not cleaning up the forest floor a bit, then natural fires are a common thing in nature. You accept the good with the bad in nature. However, that doesn't bode well when your governing and have responsibilities to keep people safe. There's a give and take with helping nature, and people, live together. This is where the criticism of California starts with fires, as it appears they've lost that middle ground of being helpful to both nature and people. Just my opinion there, obviously exclusive of dumb people being irresponsible.

    @tonyb that may have been the "Saddlewood' fire in Calimesa. The "Saddleridge" fire is the one in L.A. They are sill investigating that one. The point of orgin is near an "So. CCal. Edison" transmition line.
  • afterburntafterburnt Posts: 5,893
    The issue here in So. Cal. Is they keep building further into areas that are supposed to burn. Pretty much the case for this whole Santa Clarita valley.

    well then that works into my theory of having a "middle ground" of protecting both nature and people. If the area is suppose to burn, why build there ? we know that answer....money.

    You can say the same for flood zones. If an area is suppose to flood during the rainy seasons, why do people build there then complain about floods ?

    The one thing I've found out about nature, is it adjusts to sustain itself. Are people willing to do that ? Maybe not, as people seem to always want to infringe on the areas nature has a "keep out" sign on.

    I guess we can also say, if your one to infringe on certain areas known for natural disasters, such as quake zones, flood zones, hurricane zones, fire hazard zones....then you accept a certain element of risks. Most times those risks are minimal, but sometimes....your fooked.

    Look at Hawaii, you accept a certain risk living on an island that is basically a Volcano, right ? Then your shocked one day lava starts rolling through your living room ? Human error is one thing, but when nature does, what nature does best, how can anyone complain or be shocked ?

    I guess I'm just stumped at why anyone would build houses in an area that burns naturally....and why anyone would buy those houses.

    @tonyb, we have a similar problem here on LI, it's called Dune Road. While it doesn't burn, it does flood all the time and properties get damaged if the wind blows the wrong way. But it's exclusive (expensive) enough that the "haves" want to live there, even if it means repairing/rebuilding every few years. And unfortunately, all of those insurance claims are borne by everyone, not just the people who get to live there.

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?
