    Do Colorado teabaggers want the Federal government to stay out and let them come up with a state-based solution?

    Much of the wildfires are on federal property.

    Add this to the equation:

    Either way, polotics out I can only hope that everyone is safe and the fires go out soon.

    Strange, it was a "pub" who wrote a letter about it:

    National Defense Dumb Fuck. Fighting Out of Control Wild Fires is Exactly the kind of thing the Government should do, and is actually good at, But then only because the Mostly use the Military or Ex military to do it. :)

    So in case it is to hard to grasp for your Liberal Though Process. Limited Government Types like my self, and your so called tea baggers think the Government should stick to the Basic Duties laid out to it in the Constitution. Like Defending the nation, Which Would include Fighting Fires.

    what we don't want is some Fucking Unelected life long Bureaucrat in DC having the Power to Decide if the Treatment I need is Cost effective, Or how much Horrible Polluting C02 I am allowed to Fucking BREATH out of my mouth.

    When I was a Kid, the left back then, they had not forgotten the most important thing. Never Trust the Fucking Government. I don't care how well we write out laws, how Noble our intentions. In the End we rely on Hundreds of Thousands of unelected, Life Long, Bureaucrats. To actually Carry out the laws. Which leads to over half of every Dollar we send them being lost to Waste, Fraud, and plain Stupidity, Not to Mention the Cost of paying all those Bureaucrats.

    That is what is so alarming to me about what has Happened under Obama. More than Before anyways. It seems He and the Dems in Congress have almost ceded a Bunch of Power to the Unelected Bureaucrats By writing sweeping bills, with many of the actual Details to be worked out later by the Various Federal Agencies that they Involve. The EPA for example.

    BS- Everthing you know is wrong- ACA stops INSURERS from cutting you off, stops the prices from skyrocketing, stops lifelong limits. Idiot corporate dupe- change the channel.

    Romneycare now has 2% yearly rise (FRONTLINE)...And ACA is better.
