I would almost bet that post was made by Life Coach.
He hates volunteer firefighters, his daddy was a paid firefighter and drilled it into lifes little brain that the Volunteer firefighter was no good and all they did was go around starting fires so they could put them out.
He has been known to start threads like this.
What a low life, Has no respect for the dead.

P.S. just to show people how much LIFE hates the volunteer firefighter all the have to do is go to the topix search at the top of the page and put in volunteer firefighter and look at the list of threads and polls he has put on here.
Here these people are putting their lives on the line to help and protect others and all he can do is belittle them.
87% of all fire depts in the U.S. are Volunteer fire depts and He dosen't realize that someday he just might need their help.

I have never made a post as "son ot tbird", but I do enjoy his posts

This Mr Meyers may have been a nice man, but he had no business calling himself a "firefighter"

Look at his picture in his fireman costume.

God rest his soul, but the man was "circus fat"

A welder makes less than a fireman, so that means the fire department would not hire him

He went to McKinley.

People go to tech schools like McKinley, Hutch Tech, Burgard, and BOCES because they are too stupid for regular high school

They become welders, plumbers, mechanics,Ford workers and they can't pass civil service exams

They become volunteer firemen to make themselves feel important

Life Thank you again for showing all of us your ignorance of what real workers make.
I see you have not called a plumber or an Electrician in awhile.
Had your car worked on, or looked into just what a Certified welder gets paid an hour.
You really should to do some research into the subject before you open your mouth and that way you won't make such a fool of yourself.
Have a nice night

Like I said Life Coach is so stupid he keeps degrading the people that someday may be the ones that he will be counting on to save his life.
LPNs, Voluteer frefighters and now the State Troopers.
Have a good night

A wise man told me one time "Give me 2 Bulls, a Midget, a Monkey & a Good Welder & I can do any job" Lot of truth to that. Nothing wrong with being a certified welder, there are a lot of lives depending on the work you do & a bad bead is unacceptable. I have worked a trade for the best part of 40 yrs and am proud of it. Rest In Peace Carl Meyers, Welder and Fireman. The detractors can go sniff a pile of dog crap

Did you ever think the guy didn't want to be a paid fireman? He provided a valuable service to his community by being a volunteer. In rural areas there are no paid fire departments so what should those people do?

Maybe Carl could have been a paid fireman and welded on the side. That way he would have actually saved people instead of putting out barn fires. Also, he would have had a good pension and maybe better health care and lived a longer, fuller life

Didn't you know that LIFE has an idea that he said will win him the Nobel Prize.
He said we all can have 100% paid fire depts. for $180 a year per household.
Lets see in Buffalo they have about 200,000 households[ if that], The avg Firefighter earns in the area of $100,000 a year, that includes health and other Benefits,
So if you do the math at $180 per household that would be just about enough money to pay 360 firefighters.
Buffalo has over 700 firefighters so I wonder what he is going to pay the other 340 plus firefighters with.
I tried to point this out to him but it never sank in.
87% of ALL fire depts. in the U.S. are Volunteer fire depts.
So it would cost Billions if not Trillions of dollars in taxes for everybody to have 100% paid fire depts.
He will never get this fact through his thick head.
And as I said I do not wish him or anybody else ill will but if something does happen to him I hope it is a state trooper to be the first cop there and a volly saves his life and an LPN takes care of him in the HOSP.
Have a nice night
