Look to Wisconsin to observe what happening in Calif.. only worse..
Theres still a viable republican party in Wisconsin..
The firefighters, police and teachers OWN Mexifornia...
Americas new mafia,,, ...UNIONS... (all unions)..
Ever put some change in one of those boots at the stop light?
Same exact thing is happening in CA as Wisconsin, except not a chance of CA pulling out of it like Wisconsin did. CA is way too far past the tipping point, Democrats and unions will remain in complete control in CA and voters will give them what they want.
I have seen those back up traffic for blocks. Nine cars out of ten roll down their windows to contribute. You stand out conspicuously if you don’t. I wonder where that money goes.
Google is your friend.
It is suppose to go to Children that have been Burned I think. I heard Redding was the most generous givers.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association and most municipalities requires that firefighters that participate are off duty during fund raising activities.
Greater than 80% of the firefighters in this country are volunteers. Please don't paint us all with the union brush.
