Too bad, it was a perfect opportunity to educate the citizen on a number of standard misconceptions about operating procedures in the fire service. Even if the protocol is that all citizen complaints are referred to the Chief, the Officer should have engaged rather than ignored the citizen. It was an opportunity to inform him that fire apparatus have to be driven around on a regular basis to keep their drive train and suspension in tune, the crews need to be familiarized with every commercial building and road in their jurisdiction, driver training is always occurring on such runs, and crews usually buy from various vendors to foster good public relations.
Did note that the diesel engine was NOT running while tithe FFs were shopping which is protocol in many jurisdictions. Citizen should be thankful for that cost-saving measure.
This should not be national news.

Just to add my voice: I am beyond livid, I am beyond betrayed.
Since you cannot leave a comment at the Republican Party website, nor will Boehner’s site accept any comments from non-constituents, i will say it here in this limited forum.
I CANNOT TRUST ANY REPUBLICAN ANYMORE. YOU ARE ALL LIARS. I WILL NEVER VOTE REPUBLICAN AGAIN.
Obama's already planning on tax increases without congress.
Why do we have a congress any more? It's certainly not a check on the other branches.

Enjoy, but be civil. Because we know they are taking names.
As Sean Connery stated in the movie "Untouchables" "WHAT ARE YOU PREPARED TO DO! When you open the box on these guys they won't quite until one of you is DEAD.

Too bad the Obama oligarchy has been actively supporting and funding V15 and Hertzog in the upcoming Israeli election. Kinda knocks the legs off the “bipartisan” stool, doesn’t it?
Susan Rice bears a striking resemblance to Captain Renault…

Isn’t it time for Christians to cease the gratuitous PC and ecumenical lies, and bluntly state to the world that the Mahdi in Islamic escatology is actually the AntiChrist described in Revelation? That Islam is the Satanic sworn enemy of Judaism, Christianity , and western Christian civilization as well documented in the Qur’an and the Haddiths? And the mysterious absence of the US (eagle’s wings) in the escatalogical accounts of Jerusalem’s siege is now explained as we witness our elected and unelected oligarchs sell out Israel to their Muslim masters despite the wishes of the American people.
How is it that in the first 1700 years of the church, Popes and Crusaders demonstrated superior enemy identification skills to that of our 20th and 21st century Ivy League overseers?
BUt as you point out, we are witnessing the fulfillment of Biblical prophesy in our time. Yet Romans 13 does not prevent us from resisting tyrants and evil men.

We have met the False Prophet and his name is Mohammad. We have met the followers of the AntiChrist and their name is ISIS. Just waiting for the son of the Dragon to appear.

This is one of the greatest fallacies of Massachusetts Department of environmental protection. There is no difference in the amount of petrochemicals hydrocarbons and other material that is swept into the storm water system by normal runoff then there is captured by snow. Dump it in the harbor where the runoff is discharged during the rest of the year. Boston Harbor is still one of the most polluted harbors in America
Easy there Chadred…apparently you have forgotten that BHO is a magna *** laude graduate from the Brian Williams College of History.

Gee Liam I am just as entertained by good song and dance movies too. So if you want to follow your own political philosophy why not eschew the action films for musicals? There’s always room for another Gene Kelly. Why not put your mouth where your foot is? Oh, uh.. Well I guess you do that already.

Because all people of faith have a right to PUBLICALLY display and speak about their faith. We are not a closet society. Suppressing faith in the public square is suppressing freedom of expression. We Americans don’t allow that kind of tyranny.
Although it appears that we are getting soft about protecting our freedoms.

So by denying the display of all religious symbols in a military cemetery, is the state not endorsing atheism? That is in violation of the establishment clause by your own flawed logic.
 January 13, 2015 at 9:43am
Oh, so we negate the validity of those soldiers with faith in favor of those who don’t. How is that any different than compelling an atheist to accept a cross on their grave?

Actually, Big Delicious, its quite the opposite reaction.
I want more time to try and save more from driving off the bridge.
As the fulfillment of eschatological prophesy accelerates every day,my concern for the lost including many friends and family compounds.
And yes BD, I pray for you too.

You realize that you are a heretic to the indoctrinated.
Unfortunately if J-MO had to provide substantive proof of Darwinism’s accuracy, J-Mo would likely admit that that was what they were taught in high school biology.

No, they were Christians.

However American civilization is monotheistic, so clearly it was based on Judeo-Christian religious ideals, and not Greco-Roman cosmology. However that is not to deny the influence of Aristotelian philosophy on western and American political thought as well as the myths and idealized vision of political structure in the Roman Republic and to a lesser degree, Athens.
American political thought however was strongly shaped by two factors: the Enlightenment and the Reformation. Under the enlightenment sophists, individual human rights were not bequeathed to the common man by the state as in Greece and Rome, but by the Creator or by its derivation “nature”. The Christian influence in this radical perspective is clear and one could argue that the Enlightenment was really a Christian heresy in many ways. The second influence of course was the Reformation which stripped away the justification for intercessors be they spiritual (as in popes and priests) or political (as in kings and aristocracy). In England this led to the rise of congregationalism (puritanism) and Parliament and ultimately the Cromwell and the Civil War. Congregationalism tipped everything upside down, whereby the clergy were directed by the laity rather than vice versa. In the wake of Charles II oppression, congregationalism was transported to the New World and yielded the Mayflower Compact which served as the model for the DOI, AOC, and the Constitution. Christianity’s influence in American government is undeniable.

Exactly how has any Christian forced vile mythology down your throat? Were you kidnapped, held in a motel room and forced to eat pages from Leviticus? Was a knife shoved under your throat and you were told to convert or die? Were your children taken and sold as sex slaves until you professed faith in Christ?
Were you denied a job, a house, a loan until you signed the Westminster Confession?
Did you have to hide your copy of “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” under the floorboards of your bedroom for fear of being imprisoned or executed?
The truth is nobody forced anything down your throat. What you want is to silence alternative perspectives that might challenge your cosmology and your behavior.

Sassacus fled to the safety of his Mohawk allies who promptly killed and scalped the survivors to curry favor with the English traders.
For their invaluable assistance in eliminating the Pequot raids, the Mohegans and Naragansetts were given Pequot survivors as slaves and the lands confiscated by the CT river towns under the Treaty of Hartford in 1638.
The Wampanoug chief whose head was displayed at Plymouth colony was not a participant in the Pequot War or an invited guest at Thanksgiving but none other than Metacom who led a confederation of tribes in the bloody King Phillips War of 1675-6, which nearly wiped out European settlement in New England. Metacom was hunted down by competing tribal war parties.
Again this reference has nothing to do with the First Thanksgiving, and in fact occurred 55 years after. You really need to seek more reliable sources than rense.com when you perform your revisionist history.
