Our Town is Turning into a ZOO! (vanity)
vanity

Posted on 07/08/2013 1:09:20 PM PDT by SparkyBass

Tomorrow's "Yarnell 19" memorial is getting out of hand. a temporary cell tower is being erected in the Kohl's parking lot. SS communication? Jamming?

Semis with big-screen TVs for parking lot viewing of the memorial. TV trucks with big dish transmitters (NBC will pipe it live, and feed other networks, but lots of local tv crews).

The city finally finds it necessary to cut the weeds around the arena area. Civic center, library, local pool to all shut down.

Traffic is going to be a nightmare tomorrow. So glad I work from home. Only airport is a small one, Biden must be flying into PHX and limo-ing up I17.

This has become a circus. I understand the need for many to mourn, and there have already been memorials. This simply really frustrates me.

KEYWORDS: biden; hotshots; memorial; yarnell
Oh, and a semi-truck-trailer "Elegant toilets" has just pulled up to the arena. My guess: Biden's private toilet trailer. (there are at least 30 porta johns for the little people)

Aw geeze, that idiot will be there? All of the local FD and PD agencies are sending up representatives (Tucson area). I had an opportunity to ride up with one of them but work commitments interfered; sounds like it might be a bit of a mess up there. Good luck though!

Yes, it is a circus and the networks will be in competition to see who can describe it in the most eloquent words possible while at the same time attempting to get the closest photo of tears..........

Tears, babies, puppies and kittens, there's nothing that draws more TV viewers than those.........except violent deaths.

Yarnell is a small town in Central Arizona. 19 hotshot firefighters died when a wildfire changed direction last week.

I just read that Slow-Joe’s planned arrival will result in the GROUNDING of all fire-fighting aircraft.

IF true, what a schmuck.

Lots of foreign pilots receive F-16 fighter training at Luke. Think they’ll escort the helicopter with the VEEP?

The deaths will be attributed in the eulogies (no doubt) to Global Warming®.

COWs are cell on wheels that are put up to handle extra phone traffic from huge crowds. I have seen them put up for Indy 500 type races, sporting events, etc.

You poor thing. Why? Why you?! Why do you have to be the one put through this incredible hardship? It’s such a life-altering, shake-you-to-the-core event. You are sacrificing so much, and for that we are grateful for your strength and honor and sacrifice. Please, dear SparkyBass, be strong and know that there are others here who are praying and hoping you get through this terrible time. /s

Shame on you.

While your gift for sarcasm is, indeed, a wonderful thing I hate you see you waste it inappropriately.

the point of my post was that these memorials are becoming more about the event than the need. Politicians, TV, etc.

Yeah, either I did not indicate as such enough for all to see or you projected, or a bit of both. Good grief.
