Heh. What a summer for your friendly, neighborhood Firewitch.
Not one but eleven plus fires are now raging across the state to remind the settlers in Colorado that only Mother Nature is in charge here. And apparently, she's quite pissed, unleashing an army of pine beetles to kill all the trees fire was supposed to take anyway. All that fuel plus no rain equals one hell of a karmic boomerang.
Poor Governor Hickenlooper. Just when his campaign to end homelessness (by banning "camping" in Denver) was about to come to its ten year close, now he has 35,000 people made homeless by the wildfires. Welcome to the streets, yuppies. But don't even think about pitching a tent here.
Hey, Guv'nor! Why don't you unleash some of your Green Scare goons to arrest the lighning for arson? I'm sure the Thunder Gods will be real impressed with your spanky new prison downtown.
Speaking of kicked to the curb by Mother Nature. One of the newly houseless is none other than rightwing extremist / misogynist tool Michelle Malkin, whose ill-gotten gains Mother Nature has burnt to the ground. How do you like that scorched earth policy, Michelle? Kinda sucks, don't it, when you get back in your face what you've rained down on others for so long?
And the pain just keeps on coming. The poor baby killers at the Air Force Academy will soon be homeless, too. Talk about your no-fly-zones! Where oh where will the little eichmanns go to learn how to play their murderous video games?
Fourth of July fireworks? Fuhgeddaboudit. They're cancelled! No celebrating the theft of Great Turtle Island here. The dis-united states are too busy going up in smoke.
Really, my heart just bleeds.
