    Thank you Donald Trump for shaming and punishing our California neighbors who mismanage our Nation's natural resources, resulting in the death of American people, the destruction of American communities, as well as the loss of countless domestic and wild critters, who THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, met a horrendous demise.

    My compassion and empathy has practical limits.

    Neither you nor Trump can possibly enunciate why Texas practices responsible forest management, but California does not.

    I'm all for protecting the forest as well but that includes maintaining it so it doesn't burn down and removing debris so it doesn't pile up.

    Good. Why is Federal aid going to a state that does NOTHING to stop the damage they're causing? It's about time that California reaps what they sow.

    East Texas has more than twenty million acres of pine and hardwood.

    Did you know that?

    Why don't you go ask Abbott and find out. But, you can't control the damage from a hurricane. It's going to go where it's going to go. You can't stop, you just get the hell out of the way. On the other hands forest fires you can, but going in and thinning it out, clearing out underbrush and sometimes letting fires do what they need to do.

    YUP! So the federal government(TRUMP) thinks American citizens who lost everything in the fires, which THEY did NOT cause, should suffer....

    Gee, I thought he said ALL LIVES were precious.....guess he lied !!!!!! ( I am so not shocked)

    One consolation...maybe some of them are Trump supporters :) :) :) :)




    Oh yes, according to righties people deserve what they get if they commit the crime of " Living Near Trees" !!!

    :roflol::roflol::roflol::roll:


    Next hurricane victims shouldn't get FEMA aid because they live where it gets really windy.

    Next tornado victims shouldn't live in open areas.

    No one should live in the mountains and then expect help if there's an avalanche.

    No one should live where it snows or they shouldn't expect federal help for damage caused by large blizzards,,




    How DARE American citizens get aid from their own country....afterall, a righty contends they did NOT pay any taxes so they deserve no help at all...



    Does FEMA do forestry work?

    But you can stop building houses/ businesses in areas prone to hurricanes. Or build fortresses like a guy did in Mexico Beach, Florida. All the houses were destroyed all around except one large house built to withstand hurricane winds. How much does the government spend on hurricane disasters? Anyone know?

    Liberals think American citizens who lost family members due to illegals, which they did not cause, should continue to be put at risk.

    Please don't tell us Trump doesn't care about Americans when he's the one, unlike the left, who is putting Americans ahead of illegals and foreigners, and you guys are fighting him every step of the way.

    And the left really cares when Americans die when they're killed by illegals, right? If you had watched Trump speech last night you would have heard that Trump is trying to save all Americans, even Californians who hate America.

    The thing is, CA has the money to save themselves, but they pissed it away on a worthless train that's billions over budget and no one is ever going to ride.

    Better a train than a much more expensive and less useful wall.

    The forest surrounded what's left of the town on the eastern side. A forest fire out of control, fueled by strong winds, is as formidable as an approaching hurricane or tornado.
