    Default 350,000 homes evacuated in So. Calif.

    One-third of San Diego County. That's huge. That's what I call a natural disaster.

    I used to live in San Diego County. Don't remember any huge fires back when.

    I work woth a guy who was a marine in San Diego and he believes a lot of this could have been avoided if the enviromental nut jobs would have allowed thinning and controled burns in the area. Instead of going to the 9th circus courts in san fran and getting court orders to hault such activity.

    Not my words but I tend to agree

    I never knew Rush served in the Marine Corps.
    Today on his show he spent at least 10 minutes saying that exact same thing.

    On CNN last night they were doing an interview with the lead smoke jumper on the fires and without prompting he added that the Forest Service shares a large part of the blame for the past couple of seasons of mega-fires. He stated that the Forest Services policy over the past 60 or so years of attacking and extinguishing all forest fires as quickly as possible has allowed a tremendous amount of fuel to build on the forest floor. The fuel load has reached a point that when ignited they burn faster and hotter then ever before. Ponderosa pines are no longer surviving many of theses fires and he expects complete loss of forrests and their eco-systems in the wake of these mega-fires.

    If they were ecological nut jobs and not environmental nut jobs, they would have realized that fire plays a natural role in that particular ecosystem.

    Russian TV said the fire started because electric cable burst into flames. Not really a natural disaster.

    Maybe Al Qaeda took a page form the WWII era Japanese playbook and began launching balloon bombs.

    Funny, I heard Michael Savage yesterday saying the exact same thing. The fires were caused by the environmentalists, oh, and illegal immigrants (I'm not joking).

    That is an outrageous comment about illegals. But I do think they could be put to work helping fight the fires.
