This is a good time to thank all of those public workers – the Firefighters ( men and women) and their support crews who are fighting the fires in the California mountains. And, we should thank the public who fund the fire fighting efforts through their tax dollars. This is how government works.
Unfortunately a minority living in the mountains tend to be anti government and anti tax. Well- someone needs to promote a democratic society in opposition to the political project of the Tea Party and Right Wing Congressmen and elected officials like Mc Clintock.
You and I can assist the firefighters. Register to vote. Vote for public workers and protect their benefits and pensions.
