    snark than a legitimate question, but I'll assume I'm wrong in that interpretation.

    Are all firestations when closed it is the result of civilians?
    Yes.  Those decisions are made unilaterally by civilian politicians, responding the the whims of civilian taxpayers.
    Or are there non-civilians who also close fire stations?
    No.  While this could be possible in theory, in practice the above has been true for so long that it's more a fight on our part to maintain what little infrastructure we have left.  Kinda like the rainforest, but different.  We have nothing to say about it.  See Sparhawk's comments above.
    Are civilians the ones allowed free speech, even if the speech is idiotic?
    Yes.
    Or can non-civilians sometimes participate in idiotic types of free speech?
    First responders and military personnel do not have free speech, idiotic or otherwise.
    It's hard to tell what the diarist is trying to say here. Maybe more background as to what diarist is referring to or thinking of would help.
    I linked this in the diary http://claycord.com/... which, if you read the comments, is pretty much self-explanatory I think.

      "civilians" might limit the rights or determine the livelihood of "first responders" and "military personnel".

      Not sure what this means, in practice. Perhaps you would prefer a military government? Perhaps along the lines of a Napoleon Bonaparte, an Adolf Hitler, or a Julius Caesar?

      H'mm. I'm not terribly into this, anymore.

        it's the way things already are.

        Is that just trolling?  Or do you really and truly not understand a single thing I've said?
