Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The $350 Million that Obama gave to Solyndra, would have purchased 18 new state of the art Bombadier 415 amphibious fire fighting aircraft. But the Government said, we cant afford those.

The Vandenberg Hot Shots are coming in as we speak in a C-17 with support vehicles and all their bag of tricks. That will help.

More than 100 houses gone now. The fire area is in excess of 15,000 acres now.

I cant even comprehend how big that actually is. What a crying shame, 100 homes huh? I had heard even the sheriff was forced to evacuate his home.

At the last briefing about an hour ago, a fire boss said that between 200 and 300 homes are gone.
