Maybe instead of trying to get free healthcare for illegals they should use the monies they have to help to prevent things like this?
Talking points are great for elections but there are real problems in CA. Look at San Francisco....

I think it's about time someone told California to get their S#it together, instead of being nice after another disaster that was completely preventable. I've been listening for YEARS to experts complain about the terrible mismanagement of this and MANY other natural issues happening in CA. Maybe withholding some funding would shock them enough to cause some actual change instead of just kowtowing to the enviro crowd, and actually do some good.

No, just pointing out (again) that logging trees makes money.
People out there seem to have a very difficult time grasping that concept...
The Administration requested a combined $3.72 billion in FY2018, a 12% decrease from FY2017 enacted levels. On September 14, 2017, the Housed passed H.R. 3354, an omnibus measure covering all 12 appropriations bills, including the FY2018 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies bill. This bill would provide $3.85 billion combined for wildfire purposes, an 8% decrease from FY2017 enacted levels and 3% above the Administration’s requested levels.

way to ignore my post....I will say again
The Trump administration’s own budget request for the current fiscal year and the coming one proposed slashing tens of millions of dollars from the Department of Interior and U.S. Forest Service budgets dedicated to the kind of tree clearing and other forest management work Text Red trump slashing tens of millions for tree clearing
His father, Glenn Duysen, founded the company in 1968. At that time, there were seven other sawmills in the region logging trees in the Sequoia National Forest.
“But as wood became less available, one by one, they went out of business,” he says. Logging was restricted and the creation of the Giant Sequoia National Monument put large tracts of land off-limits.
Now Sierra Forest Products is the only sawmill left in the entire southern Sierra. And it has gone from a two-shift operation to one.

You're right. Trump caused the fires.
I saw him light them.
It's all rump's fault.
DAMN HIM TO HELL!
Your attempt at being funny failed BIGLY. The right on this forum seem to look up to you for whatever reason. Why don't you use that to close the divide between the left and right on ATS. President Trump made a good point about possible mismanagement but this was not the right time to say this. Let people heal then put a plan together.
and yes theredneck I will admit my last post was not researched as well as it should have been so you have me there! also I appreciate that no matter how fired up your posts are, you have not called me a single name and I appreciate that....I don't call people names either no matter how much I may disagree with them...that is a good policy

the 2 are different...and I mean no disrepect to victims ,families and friends who have been shot and killed...it is really terrible ...but are they in a evacuation shelter with no home to go home to all their possessions destroyed...are they dealing with the insurance and the government who is supposed to help during these disasters ....these people in natural disasters are trying to deal with the most basic necessities of life...THAT is the difference...do you not see that
