  • Califorina Wildfire Survivors are now a "special interest".

    Well now I guess the Esperanza Fire survivors are now "special interest".

    Arnold actually flew down there to make an appearance. Funny how an election year will do that to a politician looking to be re-elected.

    Last year he passed on a CHP Officer's funeral just to fly out of state to watch a baseball game. What a loser!

    I know from previous posts...

    ...that you don't like Arnold and think he has been bad for the fire service, but don't you think if he had stayed away, people would have given him crap about THAT? It's like he can't win for losing...

      No, he has been bad for the fire service. He only comes out if its to his advantage. He doesnt care for my brothers and sisters in my state. He wants to screw us over at every turn.

      A CHP Officer died in the line of duty and Arnold choose to attend a baseball game/fund raiser instead. Thats just not right.

      All I ask for is any backing from fire service people in the other parts of the nation. Some people of this country would like nothing better to see him move up in his political career. (Yes, I know he cant be President, yet.)

        Could it be possible that he learned something from CHP debacle?
        Fortune does not change men; it unmasks them.

        The grass ain't greener, the wine ain't sweeter!! Either side of the hill.

          Too little, too late. This guy does not like public safety employees. How else can I state this?

            Bad Ahhnold.....shame on you!

            Hey Brett, I saw 'ole Ahhnold on CNN last night looking good for his photo opp with all the FF's behind him. How pathetic of him to use our Brother's deaths to advance his political agenda and act like he care's. He doesn't care about FF's, police officer's, nurse's or teacher's......trying to get his talon's into everyone's retirement funds. (Including my father, who's been a sheriff sergeant for 32 year's in the state of California).

            My .02 cents...keep the change.

              Just to ruffle a few feathers: few Republicans do.

              Unfortunately, we generally only have two choices.

                You see, this is what I'm saying

                He doesn't show up for the CHP, he's wrong. He DOES show up for the FS, he's wrong.

                Arnold may be horrible for the fire service; you would certainly know better than I. But this incident does not demonstrate your point. It was entirely appropriate for him to show up, and if he hadn't, people would have been justifiably p-o'd.

                  Well at least they don't tear apart our entire military.

                    If he gets re-elected, then it's 4 more years of battling him over issues such as our pensions.
                    He is a real piece of work.

                      Basically what my esteemed Brother Bou is ranting about is the fact that in the past Arnie has tried at every level to screw the public safety and education workforce by decreasing benefits, survivor benefits ans so on. While at the same time touting needs for better public safety programs, educational programs and so on. With this year being an election year the Gov shows up at a fire praising the very people he tried to screw over as if we had forgotten. He's in a tight race with Phil Angeledes and he's using every opportunity to get camera time.
                      We've had other LODD's in Ca this year and the Gov didn't show because the national news was not there. I underestand Bou's frustration.

                          He has committed to not attacking pensions. But as Ronald Reagan used to say, "trust but verify".
                          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.

                            PS- Arnold forgets, we dont. And YOU could be next. He could run for other offices that do not require to be natural born. Careful, the fox already has one foot in the hen house.

                              And oddly enough, one of my guys was asking if Arnold could be Vice President. We found out he could. If the President is not able to fulfill their duties the order of succession jumps over him to the Speaker of the House.
