    They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

    I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

      No, I just do not suffer FOOLS lightly. You are a pathetic immature liberal POS, and I'm finally going to take Fyredup's recommendation and block you. I will waste no more of my time on your worthlessness.

        The fire service sure does have a lot of folks with thin skins. You wouldn't have lasted 30 seconds around the table at pass-along.

          Define hypocrite: SCFireless, blocks me because he is a whiny snowflake that couldn't survive a taste of his own nonsense then calls someone that blocks him a snowflake. Frankly maybe dumb azz defines him better than hypocrite.

              Yeah it is. But here's my take. People ran away and let guys like SCFire take over, as well as the other goobers and trolls. I freely admit I was one of the agitators and LA was my primary victim, but that history is long written by everyone except SCFire and a select few others. Look at this entire site, it is deader than zombies because everyone left.

              You and others popping in once or twice a year to talk about how bad it is but never staying to try and help bring back what this place once was are as big a part of the problem as azz hats like SC. I'm still here, as are a few others, we start topics and try to get discussions going but sadly those who could strongly add to them left. Those of us left struggle to keep this alive, although at this point it seems hopeless. What we need is people to help build the site back up, not people that do drivebys telling us how bad it is.

                You know, I just started popping in again recently after a loooong break. And all the posts and threads I see are usually career related (whose hiring where, and what questions do you have) or stupid political crap.

                I actually miss the useful discussions where you could learn from more experienced people. Back when you were simply CaptainGonzo, Chief Woods, E229Lt, Ray from FDNY (RIP), heck even GeorgeWendtCFI was able to contribute a little bit of their experience in various aspects of the fire service (and I still remember E229Lt's post about being above an elevator being the most dangerous). FyredUp was good too, and I'm sure there are plenty that I am missing.

                It's like a real firehouse, without good senior guys to keep the young guys in check, chaos and stupidity ensues. And even if a select few start good discussions, without smart and experienced people commenting and keeping the discussions going, they just, well, die.
                If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!
