In other words, the CDF has a union contract with its employees to protect their jobs. No outside forces can be used to fight fires, including volunteers, until certain protocols are followed which, of course, means among other things, union rules.Maybe the union needs to pay some of the damage done to the residents homes and properties! After all, that fire was big enough to need all the help they could get!! I agree with echo3mike!!

If thing weren't so tragic...one might think that all the individuals were cast in a Shakespear comedy.
Some have their piorities all foul up.
Here too we have a case of a hero or a coward and Andrea Tuttle head of the California Department of Forestry (CDF) and the CDF have taken the route of cowardly action.
Damm the rules take care of the State because without the State there's no need for a union.
I agree with all that been stated.

OK.... so these 'numb-nuts' are union (small 'u').

Why couldn't some gung ho Navy Admiral (or somebody, somewhere) reckognize that our NAVY isn't union, doesn't have to follow THEIR rules, and was capable of preventing a 'molehill' from becoming a mountian?

Just Fkn do what has to be done... and figure the P.C. 'Bovine Sewage' out later.

Just asking !!!

thrown in as a cover-up by Governor Davis. According to federal laws he said to cover up for the b itch he appointed to CDF position, no one else can fight fires until all available private businesses had been given the opportunity.

That is plain stupid and hopefully someone in government has the balls to change that, or we may neever to recall that law.

stupid people... stupid people, stupid people.

Did I already say they arestupid people?

I wonder what would have happened if one or more of the Navy or Marine Corps pilots had flown over the fire area, dropped their retardant, and said "oops".

Why did the Navy and Marine Corps listen to the government in California? What are they going to do do kick us out of there? I don't think so. There are quit a few military babses in California, in the long run the little guy got screwed by a state government that doesn't give a S$$T for its residents. Will California pay for the losses that would have been prevented. Man there are some stupid people in state and federal governments to let this happen.

Just my two cents.

Apparently, no one had schooled the out-going governor that the Marines are trained to fight in the three block war scenario. I believe one of those "blocks" is the humanitarian missions that Marines may have to provide as part of modern warfighting.

If I had lost my home and learned that military, trained professionals, were standing ready but left idle because someone could not justify using military equipment or personnel, I'd hold that individual personally libel.

Last summer there was a large group of illegal aliens who were crossing the desert here in Arizona and were near death. Marine helocopters from Yuma Med-evaced them and saved many lives...I don't recall that they had to get permission from anyone. There was a need and they responded. If the Marines can help illegals breaking the law why couldn't they help Americans?

they don't have a dike appointed by a failure of a Governor in charge.

The liberal-socialist crapheads within the United States, with Gray Davis being a prime example, will eventually inflict just as much, if not more, damage as any of the terrorists we're fighting outside our borders.

Just a thought:

Maybe they should change "Smokey the Bear's Slogan" from only you can prevent forest fires to "Awwww, Pi$$ on it".
