Here we have raging wildfires in Texas, placing fire hose water upon them is like why bother? By the time the water is gushing from the tip of the hose, it hits the hot, dry air, evaporation instantly. What are they to do, dig the trenches surrounding the perimeter of the fire, hoping that will slow it down? Honesty, with the heat index and the lack of water to extinguish this blaze in record time, what needs to be done? What logical answer is to be given here? Folks are alarmed, afraid for their safety and may lose their homes. Compare this to a hurricane recently, are the two any different in retrospect? Not really, the only exception may be one is man-made and the other is a natural weather force. All in all, lives are at stake and prayers from strangers will be heard....

The governor of Texas, Rick Perry, cut funding for
Texas volunteer fire departments by 75% from $30 million to $6 million.

Texans are now paying the price of stupid governance.

Gutting FIRE Departments is a Prime Example of Republican GREED..] ANYONE who Voted for these Vampires deserves what they get, Sadly the rest of US Do NOT. Look to Florida if you want to see just how BAD Republican Government Works for the People

You are exactly on target.

That is a very big reason that even many real conservatives have no use for Perry and his pandering to whoever is paying him that day.

Be wary!: Rick Perry is NO conservative and is extremely dangerous to our country! Rick Perry is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) which is tied with the Bilderberg Group! Rick Perry attended the Bilderberg Group meetings in 2007 and 2011! Associating himself with that organization should be a red flag for all American voters!: http://www.audacityofhypocrisy.com/2011/08/13...

Texas DESERVES Rick Perry and it is a shame that the federal gvm't is helping them at all. States should be held accountable for who they vote for and that is right from the HYPOCRITE Tea party mouth.

Republicans burn the candles at both ends and NEVER held accountable.

I agree about Florida as we also deserve hypocrite Rick Scott and hypocrite Marco Rubio . We should be laughed at if we dare ask the federal gvm't for aid.

Tea party supported Florida Republican Governor-

"There is a $35 million cut to the Department of Veterans Affairs and a $173 million cut to the Agency for Persons With Disabilities right alongside a $300 million increase to the Executive Office of the Governor."
