It may not seem fair and I feel for the family that it happened to but it's not the fire departments fault. The fire departments operate on VERY limited budgets & most of the fire fighters dont even get paid. They do it because of the love of the job. BUT it takes a lot of water to put out a fire and it isn't free. Thats why they have the rual residents pay for the service yearly if they want it. We pay insurance for our homes so that they can be replaced in an accident so I don't see why it would be any different to have to pay for the fire department service. If we didn't pay our homeowners insurance we wouldn't expect the insurance company to fork out the money would we?? No, we would have to pay for the loss ourself. People need to stop thinking everything should just be given to them. Pay the annual fee & it won't be a proble. I'm so sick of people who want everything given to them.

Laws are laws,this is why they sell home-owners insurance.... sad but true.
I am not saying it was right but we city residents pay and so should the rural residents????
yea,that's what insurance is for but when your insurance goes through the roof because of dorry ass people like that maybe you'll be happy. The insurance company only looks at what town you live in not weather you pay city taxes or not.

One young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview.
The director discovered from his CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent. He asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the youth answered "no".
" Was it your father who paid for your school fees?"
"My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.” he replied.
" Where did your mother work?"
"My mother worked as clothes cleaner.”
The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.
" Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?"
"Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.
The director said, "I have a request. When you go home today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.
The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back home, he asked his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to her son.
The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother winced when he touched it.
This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fees. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his education, his school activities and his future.
After cleaning his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.
That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.
Next morning, the youth went to the director's office.
The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, when he asked: "Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?"
The youth answered," I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes'
“I know now what appreciation is. Without my mother, I would not be who I am today. By helping my mother, only now do I realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done on your own. And I have come to appreciate the importance and value of helping one’s family.
The director said, "This is what I am looking for in a manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life.”
“You are hired.”
This young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and worked as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously.
A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop an "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, they may be successful for a while, but eventually they would not feel a sense of achievement. They will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying our children instead?

You can let your child live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch on a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it. After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your child learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.

Your dementia is progressing and it continues to manifest itself in your posts.

After more than 2 years on topix. After more than 40,000 posts. And, even though I have told you this before. Pay attention.

Lengthy posts, especially copy and paste posts like the above mentioned post, often are not posted right away. It is most likely because of anti-spam software that knows you cannot type 4000 characters in the few seconds on the post page. Fast posting, in this manner, would automatically flag a post t be reviewed by a moderator and approved before being posted on the forum. After approval, it will show in the correct location. o you understand now?
