[quote]Here is an example of the green approach being severely wrong, with people dying as a result, and people protecting themselves being punished.

Moral of the story is that he should have let the government take care of him, they fined him $100,000 to teach him that lesson. Then things got real and did the government come through for his neighbors?

Ron, I'm sad you are so obstinate and insist on denying the hard work of others because it doesn't conform to your uneducated OPINION... because you seem like a decent enough guy otherwise.

Ken, I for one am happy for the Angora Fire. Sorry people lost their houses, but like I said... they now have bigger and better ones. From everyone I know who owns a house in the burned area, TRPA bent over backwards to help them rebuild.

I was working on the "South Shore Fuels Reduction Project" when I decided to go back to grad school. We were getting resistance from TRPA for not being strict enough with our hydrology and soils protection, and getting (more hostile) resistance from the veg department internally for scrutinizing their methods. I didn't mind because I'm confident a workable solution can be found if people take the time to collect quality data and look at the FACTS, rather than mere opinions. The Angora Fire woke some land managers up around here.. it also had some of the narrow-minded fools yelling "I told you so" followed by ignoratio elenchi ad nauseum... bringing up all kinds of unrelated stuff from driveway asphault to rain gutters to deck plans... as if those had anything to do with fuels treatments.

Emerald Bay Road was treated pretty heavily over the last couple years... and the tourons have been filing complaints left and right. As you may know, tourons have way more influence here than residents. A similar thing happened along pioneer trail some years back. Now the South Shore Fuels Project is in full swing and you can hear chainsaws from pretty much everywhere.

Point is, we need FACTS and DATA, not opinions. Ronny boy won't even reveal the locations of these cutting edge futuristic projects he helped pioneer so we can all see for ourselves. Why would the big bad government not continue doing them if the worked so well? Is it part of the UN invasion plan? He'd rather we just take his word for it that there was no erosion, etc (something that I will bet my M.S. degree is complete bullshit and 100% verifiably false). Reminds me of the folks who believe tires make for good stream restoration materials. Funny that he slams TRPA for doing the same thing (making sh#t up/relying on opinions) only from the other side.

That's why science rools.

I find it funny that Ron would bring up how much better a socialist Governments medical system is than ours.

The question was if the NRA have a stupid pill & the answer is Yes.

The next funny thing is all of you defending the most corrupt organization (NRA) in the U.S.

I'm a gun owner & gun collector.

Before you call out our Government you should get yourself in order. I left the NRA over 15 years ago, because of the blatant corruption at the top of the NRA.

Armed insurrection !!! Are you stupid? You sound like the lefties in the 1960's.

But for all of those, we invaded foreign nations, whee we essentially had no national interests


There is a huge national interest in each country invaded. The US dollar, the ability to borrow more than GDP each year. The economic empire. To keep the American dream alive! All that was needed in the middle east lately was to overthrow the government that thought that they could sell oil for anything other than the US dollar and/or put gold into use as money. Libya, Iraq, Iran is trying but economic sanctions have worked so far... I just can't figure out why they hang around so long each time.

Regardless of what side of the "gun" fence you sit on...

Our country is flat broke. Fiat all around the world is essentially worthless. All that remains is a realization of that, a loss of faith. It is amazing the can has been kicked this far but they really have no choice at this point.

Historically that has meant widespread war, suffering, chaos, and tyranny except probably on a global scale this time rarely before seen in human history. There are too many variables falling apart at the same time to know the timing or the outcome. Maybe months, maybe decades.

If you cannot see that and these inane wedge issues constantly being driven between members of our society, quite on purpose, then please... carry on.

If you think our current government is truly representative of the people and has their best intentions in mind, then please... carry on.

We live in interesting times.

Just talked with a buddy, who just spent the entire day looking in EVERY gunstore from CC to RNO --ALL are sold out of any tactical rifles save for one,, and he bought a Pera TTR -2300.00..OUWCH!

No one has ammo, magazines or any of the like for any tactical weaponry- sold out. From Cabelas to back st stores.

Yeah, the end of the world was predicted (again)... duh. And on top of that, there was a mass shooting, which can mean only one thing... Obama and the UN are coming after your guns, better buy more to protect yourself.

To quote the man who shares the name of my favorite dough...

Stupid is as stupid does.

Gun sales surge in Virginia... they say that 5,150 background checks were requested in one day. How fast can the police effectively do in a day? How many criminals are getting in on the rush - or are these checks truly thorough?

Lincoln said in his 2nd inaugural address that suffering was being inflicted on the US as karma for the suffering we inflicted on the black race

All those who insist on that same suffering being inflicted on the 12,000 innocents who die at their hands each year will have that same suffering inflicted on them

Will you apply the same logic to the approximately one and a quarter million abortions in the US per year?

yeah, but those aren't really humans so we will need an adjustment factor... 0.01 or less based on weight.
