I was surprised to see how big the campus is and how big the memorial is, especially the 9/11 memorial.

Merry Christmas to you to

-Art, I totally understand the point you make as to politics and the tie in to our profession, art, and community.  I also knew that Frank had a podcast/radio show and he and I have discussed my variance of opinion with that venue as well.

-My contention is not politically motivated but rather born out of a belief that our service is comprised of so many different types of people, and political discussions tend to be such a harsh and immediately polarizing topic, that I'm concerned firefighters will no longer read articles or blogs by authors they recognize or identify as politically motivated, and leave a site that has so much to offer by way of instruction and "long distance mentorship", if you will permit such an idea.

-Just my opinion; and opinions are like noses, everybody has one. What's more, this is the grand ol' U.S. of A. and we all have the right to blow our horns if we so choose so I guess we'll both keep on doing what we do.

-Art, though I do look forward to reading and participating in your blogs, in reference to your most recent blog The Debt Ceiling, I wonder if this firefight training site is not he appropriate formate for discussing political views, especially given that political topics tend to be extraordinarily polorizing.

-Just my thought.

I posted one of them here at FE.  I'm not too educational but a little twisted isn't too bad.

I'd be interested in your review.  Thanks

yes I am happy with the outcome of last nights elections I think that balance is a good thing. Obviously I would've been happier if we had won in Alaska and California as well. I'm a huge supporter of term limits and I think that these lifetime politicians that were seeing like Harry Reid with 30 years in the Senate is not a good thing for our country. It's also not a good thing when someone like Lisa Murkowski feels entitled to her job because her daddy gave it to her. But these are battles that those folks in those states are going to need to work out for themselves.
