        Your an idiot. Not everything is politics. The left even made forests political and created the conditions on the ground that made this fire unstopable. Go back to school and stay there. Your "inteligence" is literally killing people. Maybe you can build a fire fighting app.

          You're the idiot. These are not forest fires. They are just wild land fires.

          Also note the contraction of you are is you're, not your. If you learn this, your day will not be wasted.

    Who are President Trump Supporters?
    We are Conservatives at heart.
    We believe in keeping our guns and our beliefs in God our Creator.
    We believe no individual should ever be enslaved by the government.
    We believe that nobody should be over taxed beyond their income.
    We believe that there should not be redundant laws to those already in place.
    We believe government should live with in a budget just as all citizens live with in a budget.
    We believe in a national voter id so all voting is lawfully accounted for.
    We believe in legal immigration not illegal immigration!
    We believe in securing our borders, sea ports and all ports of entry to keep our nation safe.
    We believe in stronger penalties for all crimes.
    We believe in educating our children not dumbing them down.
    We believe in trade school type classes in all high schools to better prepare our children for life after school.
    We believe firmly in gun education not gun confiscation.
    We are parents who deeply care about our children's future.
    We are construction workers who keep you in housing.
    We are first responder emergency personnel who keep you safe and come to your aid.
    We are doctors and nurses and all others in the health care industry.
    We are those who bring you your food into your local grocery stores.
    We are those who drive your children to school.
    We are the people that move you place to place all around this nation.
    We are many of your own relatives.
    We are your veterans who went and fought so you did not have to.
    Even with all of these good things the "leftist Democrats the party of hate and lies" still insist on name calling, violence and looking upon us a secondary citizens.
    This is why we encourage everybody who is tired of the leftist Democrats to #WalkAway and to separate yourself from the political party of hate and violence the left has become.
    Hundreds are #WalkingOut on the leftist Democrats each day and not looking back. They dislike what the Democrat Party has become. Who can blame them.
    Actions speak louder than anything else but the only actions we see out of the leftist Democrats are hate, lies, distrust and higher taxes upon everybody and keeping their own voter base enslaved with empty lies of a grand utopia.
    Is that what you want for your children's future? A empty promise by a political party of hate and lies?
    #WalkAway today and join others who have taken back their votes from the leftist party of hate and want a better tomorrow for everybody not just one group of individuals.
    #MAGA2020 and beyond. Say no today to the leftist Democrats the party of hate.

STOP WASTING MONEY ON A BULLET TRAIN
BUY AIRCRAFT TO FIGHT FIRES AND MANAGE OUR FOREST.
A FLIGHT DOWN SOUTH WILL ALWAYS BE CHEAPER AND FASTER THEN A TRAIN, PEOPLE. THE UP KEEP OF TRACKS WILL FOREVER BE A MAINTENANCE COST ALONG WITH PERSONAL TO RUN THE TRAINS, THE UNIONS, THE POLITICIANS POCKETING MONEY TO FRIENDS,THE TRAINS THEMSELVES.
YOU'LL BE FOREVER, KNUCKLEHEADS TO THE END OF YOUR DAYS.

      Amtrack should lower their fares and then they might come closer to filling the trains. As it is, it costs much more to travel by train than to fly.

      Amtrack could have greater revenue per train by lowering fares.
