I am a retired ff and I can honestly say that ff's generally speaking are the laziest people on the face of the earth. Most of them do the job because of their perceived status it gives them....not because they want to help people because that's what they love to do. Most of them are tools and so self absorbed they could give a shit about anything. I am glad that I am not a part of that organization any longer...so when someone ask me what the toughest decision of the day...the answer is what are we going to stuff in our fat asses today! Lazy fucks.

To the "retired FF" talking smack. Tell the truth the only way your a real retired ff is your one of the ones caught looking at porn, or stealing and only "retired" to save your benefits.

As for cops, you people who complain amaze me. you talk smack like you "know" how to do the job and then blame the cops for enforcing the laws passed by the representatives you ignorant asses elect. you live next door to or with family memebers or friends you know is selling dope, stealing or acting living as a gang member and do nothing to guide teach or correct them. Then cry for help when things go bad. As for the single moms posting here- your another breed of problem for this country. Your a single mom cause you were too stupid and spread your legs for some idiot or too stupid to keep a man or soo stupid you think not having a daddy is smart. Either way your choices lead you to being single so stop with the extra brownie points by saying " Im a a single mother" and i do all this alone. Bull, single moms get extra college helps, babysitting services- all the while still looking it up for another man to bang.

Whats wrong with the Volunteer fire department. They are true hereos because they are truly selfless. The firefighters who get paid for basically getting butt burn think that just because they go on about 2.5 fire calls each month that are truly a fire they deserve to get paid are called a hero. Frankly I don't want to pay someone with my hard money to rescue animals, harrass business owners, play cards and polish they equipment, respond to accidents where they are 95% not needed and watch one hell of a lot of TV.
If any of you don't believe me just spend a week with a paid fireman and get to see first hand what they do. You will be shocked how little they do anything that has to do with fires, They actually now invent things to do that make them look important like inspecting buildings, reviewing construction plans etc....

Jay Mac, if you truly are a volunteer fireman then thanks for volunteering. I know of no FF who does not call you all heroes as well.

Course, with your mindset of having only volunteers around then lets just have volunteer everything like military etc.. that would make the world go around just fine. Closest thing is the business world of "part Time" suppose you support that. I really love how you "tax payers' think so low of the work we do. Hmm how about we cut cut construction of roads and bridges by millions of dollars quick and easy. We let Government workers do it instead of the private good ole boys.

I could go on and on, but Jay Mac your comments about trusting the safety and security of our lives and property to volunteers like you is really absurd. I bet you can not even begin to roll up a hose correctly.

my father paid tax for 79 years. and in that time he never needed a cop or fireman he was not a doctor or lawer who payed tax he was a non union brick layer who would come home with cracked hands every night if he lit up the bbq at work he would get fired. if he seen an old lady traped in a house that was on fire he would go in and try to do what he can. as would most hard working tax payers. stop acting like super heros you should be running drills the whole time your at work and not bbQ ing. you mite save more lifes.we dont pay you to bbQ or drive around town blowing your horns on the 4 th. you city firemen and cops get BIG BUCKS to do the job you aplied for no one told you you have to do that job. so when your at work just work like all of us and when the real thing comes along you will be ready and not get hurt becouse of to many bbQ or donuts.

We get paid the big bucks? Most firefighters and cops are lucky if they get to the point of making 50k a year, most will only get paid between 23k and 35k a year. Not to mention the money taken out of their paychecks for insurance and the like, I get around 600 dollars taken out each paycheck for various taxes and fees. Big bucks? Not likely (that's why most firemen work extra jobs on the side). And do training drills all day until needed? Most departments do train daily...but you gotta understand something we train like its the real thing, we use a lot of energy when we train like its the real thing, if all we did was training drills all day long then we'd have no energy for the real thing when it came around.
When you get off work at 5 in the evening I bet you like to enjoy a dinner, maybe a beer with your family right? Well just remember those firefighters who are on shift don't get to go home for dinner with their family. They are with their second family and if they want to grill some steaks for dinner then why the hell shouldn't they? They work a 24 hour shift and you're telling me they can't enjoy a meal to their liking? Who the hell are you to say such a thing. Oh hey have you ever grilled a steak, got your entire meal ready and just as you were to take the first bite tones drop and you had to leave your meal to go help people, only to return hours later to a cold meal? I have...more than once...cut these guys some slack because they relax a little, because when the tones drop and they go to a tough job...they work harder than you do all day. And that is no lie.
