My heart goes out… but…

Once again, the dry, brush-covered hills surrounding San Diego, the single coastal bastion of conservatism in California, have gone up in a firestorm that threatens thousands of homes.

My heart goes out to those in danger and especially those who have lost their homes.

That said, San Diego county Republicans gutted their area’s ability to fight fires with their idiotic tax cuts and dogmatic laissez faire policies.

Until they start taking care of their OWN protection and paying for their own fire-fighting and preparing themselves for the brush fires that are all too PREDICTABLE, the state and federal governments should be wary of giving them ANY disaster funds unless absolutely necessary for safety and stability.

It appears about the only way you can make these opportunistic, greed-promoting politicians take some of the responsibility they are so often urging others to step up to.
