The California Conservation Corp is one agency that takes care of the forest management. Creating fire breaks, cleaning up the forest of old trees and dead debris. I don’t understand what happen to this great commodity we had in our youth.
Bruce Saito is leading the California Conservation Corps in its mission to protect and enhance California’s natural resources and communities. Perhaps the youth 18 to 25 years of age have other interests today and are not interested in joining the CCC.
Started September 7, 1976 The California Conservation Corps, or the CCC, is a department of the government of California, falling under the state cabinet-level California Resources Agency. The CCC is a work development program specifically for men and women between the ages of 18 to 25, offering work in environmental conservation, fire protection, land maintenance, and emergency response to natural disasters. Members of the CCC are referred to as “Corpsmembers”, and are paid minimum wage for their work.
There are many men and women from the CCC fighting the wild fires of California today.

It is being reported by the ACLU that California Prisoners are being paid $1.45 a day…
Now the questions are coming forward about what is a fair wage for a prisoner?
ACLU is saying that the prisoners deserve a wage comparable to the firefighters. ACLU also states the prisoners deserve the rights that every hard working non-criminal citizens have.
Now I am not sure about you, but I think that is ludicrous. To actually imply that a citizen who has worked their entire life and keep their nose out of trouble does not deserve a better pay wage then a prisoner who is still incarcerated. To actually even imply that statement, let alone lobby for the rights of prisoners on this subject. Who are these people at the ACLU who keep churning along to get criminals better rights and benefits then our Veterans or Senior citizens have? Prisoners have more rights then most considering they are in prison for crimes they have committed.
Some tax payers of California say they should not have to pay them a dime. They should be working for all the housing, food and medical they are receiving.
That’s fine, I can see their reasoning. The California Tax payers Pay $75,563 a Year per prisoner. When you add it all up no wonder California is not flush financially.
Perhaps all states should be using their prisoner population for natural disaster recovery efforts.
My next set of questions are:
- How soon do you deploy the prisoners?
- At the onset of disaster?
- When the fire dies down?
- Or when the fire is so out of control you start to look at your resources?
- What has happened to the financial resources from Federal funds?
- Where and what was that money spent on?
- Why was it not spent on forest management?
Only Governor Jerry Brown would know these facts, since the money goes to each state directly. What happened to all the money collected from the lottery? And why wait so long to shift gears and break out every resource you have?
Governor Jerry Brown has been Governor of California since 2011. In 2012 was the first city to claim bankruptcy in California. Bankruptcy continues to take City by City to this day. Making California one of the poorest states, which was once one of the richest states.
GOD BLESS CALIFORNIA

Hosts On “The View” Mock First Lady Melania Trump
When do we just start turning the channel?
My friends and I have had enough with these women and their agendas. I watch TV to forget and perhaps laugh for a moment before the kids get home. I hate to say it but you ladies are really getting on our nerves… Always putting this person down, or something just is not the way YOU think it should be..
SHAME ON YOU.. You are not mentors of happiness… You are stars to depression. Great show if you are on your way out mentally or perhaps taking your last steps in life and just need a little more depression just to send you over the edge… GEEEZE
I want up beat, happy and positive input in my life. I think more than half of your viewers have all ready turned your depression off.
My friends and I are tired of all this hatred. This show is depressing and you are putting this into our communities. No wonder we have so many hating on each-other. You Facilitate and manufacture hatred for a living.
You and ABC are going to loose your place all together on all of our favorites button.
There are other shows that we can watch.
Is it really about fashion Ladies??? Shame just SHAME
Candace Owens Speaks Out Against Oppression.
Who’s to say you can’t change your thinking on life. No matter the color of your skin, if you were in the low income groups you have been told for centuries:
- No you can’t, You crazy, you can’t do that…
- Why you want to mess with that, you can’t do that.
- What you think you better than us. You want to be like them.
- Being Called Uncle Tom, Cracker Topper, Gringo Pinto just because you want an education and a better life.
- You work 3 jobs and live in a different neighborhood because you don’t want your children to be bullied or killed.
No One is entitled to anything and your great, great, great grandmother is gone, long gone and so are those people who did those hideous crimes. Don’t let yourself be oppressed by the memories of where it came from… The bigotry, hatred and racism from one another has got to stop. Stop and realize some people of power are trying to start a race war to further the oppression and it’s not president Trump.
You want a better life and a better job? Well Guess What, you can have all that and so much more!!!!! Does not matter where your life started. What matters is where your life ends and how you enjoyed it.
CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE
