Who do you support for U.S. Senate in Washington in 2010?

Are you smoking something that isn't legal? Patty Murray is running for a senate seat. I'm not exactly sure where you got the idea that US Senators have anything to do with State Sales taxes and such. Can you give us an example of what bills she's voted for that pertain to your statement above? Why do so many unqualified voters try to pipe in with comments that only make them look foolish when it comes to understanding the difference between State and Federal positions within government and also understanding what laws and authorities those separate levels of government have.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #80)

Sorry hard to vote for someone that cannot admit nobody wants them representing them. Let's face it, Rossi has a lot of shady support form commercial businesses. Government is suppose to represent the people not business. Why does everyone equate a senate or congressional seat to State budgetary restraints. This election is federal, and the federal problems were caused by the Bush administration. Is the memory of the residents in this State that short? Please people, it was the Republicans that stalled and hindered the Health Care Bill and caused so many changes that essentially it became a watered down, useless bill at suits big business and not the average citizen. It was the Democrats that brought home our soldiers as promised, it is the democrats that are trying to change the health care system for the better. How can we honestly trust anyone with their hands in cookie jar (Rossi owns a bank) and believe they are not trying to benefit themselves instead of the public. How exactly is supporting bills, laws and regulations that favor the banking institutions going to benefit the average citizen? If you want, vote for them, but you're a fool to believe big business has any other interest other than their profit off the backs of the citizens. You as a citizen have a say, not big business.  (Oct 12, 2010 | post #4)

Pay-to-Spray Firefighters Watch as Home Burns

If the city of South Fulton honestly thinks they were in the right, then why is their government website taken down? Why are so many people defending the City when the City themselves know full-well they were so wrong? Those that support the notion of "let it burn" are stuck in this tunnel like vision that fire services are like insurance. It is not. Calling the Police is not like insurance. Anyone in critical condition is treated in an ER Trama unit often without knowing more than approximate age and gender. The rest is sorted out later. I find it amazing that some here "claim" they are part of a fire department and want to be treated with the respect of a first responder but they sure don't present themselves like real first responders would. I don't think there's a fire fighter in this country that is taking the side of the City of South Fulton FD, unless of course they too have a Confederate Flag/Dixie Flag/Rebel Flag (all the same but by a different name) pinned on the back window of their rusted out pickup truck. Anyone that puts administrative procedures and accounting before being a first responder should resign their post as a first responder. Plain and simple. "Laughing at the Fools" has a tendency to not argue against those that have him dead to right, or omitting vital information in their arguments in this thread to suit their point. Why can't you just admit the fact that fire unit on scene should have helped that man in need and let the costs be sorted out later? Why do you equate fire protection to fire insurance? Fire insurance is for when the fire department is unable, or in this case unwilling, to do their job. Luckily Mr. Cranick had fire insurance. Unfortunately 4 lives were lost. Not to mention now the neighbors' property is valued less than what it was 2 weeks ago. So the neighbor lost out indirectly because of the lack of action by the fire department. Those that argue that the structure could no be saved and that is why it was permitted to burn are wrong to state that. The reason it was allowed to burn was for administrative reasons. Please tell me, what if the next time this policy that you believe in so much is once again enforced on a family and the town later learns that due to an administrative error on the fault of the town it was believed they didn't pay. What if the next time they refuse to put out the fire and it spreads so fast and turns into a wild fire that the unit(s) on scene cannot control and the town burns down? Let's face it, a town of 2,000 (give or take) people is not a city. To the world South Fulton, TN is noting less than a Hick-Town, USA. You're defending the indefensible. You're trying to defend "legal" obligation when everyone with common sense in this thread is debating the moral and ethical conscience of those involved. I will not post again on this topic, it is obvious that educating you, and those that think with such callous notions are beyond even the most patient of people.  (Oct 9, 2010 | post #2282)

Isn't if convenient that you regularly omit small bits of facts to make your argument look more credible. You forgot there was 4 pets in the home. The story that the animals all ran into the shed was bogus. They were in the home. A fire truck was on scene before the main structure was fully involved. Why were the other units canceled if they couldn't handle the situation? You act like the reason now is because it couldn't be saved when the real reason is all over $75 bucks. The first unit itself was canceled even before it got there. How in the world was an assessment done without even being on scene? How did they know that someone didn't run back into the main structure to save precious belongings like so often happens? This entire incident would have been differently had the fire department not showed up at all. But they did. They berated the man over the fee, refused to help, laughed at him, mocked him, and did nothing to help him. The fact they showed up throws all arguments out the window that involve fees not being paid. It is unfortunate that this fire department will inevitably suffer financial problems in the future after the Crannicks sue everyone under the Sun over the way this was handled. It will most likely inclu "Laughing at Fools", you sir come across to me as someone that is: a - not a fire fighter b - not a person with common sense c - not a person with an ounce of compassion d - possible a member of the unit that responded to this incident and you want to somehow shift the blame e - someone that has no clue what you're talking about and you just like to post every other minute. f - all of the above  (Oct 9, 2010 | post #2265)

Think about that statement again Beck, LMAO... Get 2,000 people with the mentality of Let the thing burn over $75 bucks and you might want to have 100 full-time fire fighters in your town.  (Oct 9, 2010 | post #2263)
