A fast-growing wildfire in Colorado forced 11,000 people from their homes at least briefly on Sunday and threatened popular summer camping grounds beneath Pikes Peak, whose vistas helped inspire the patriotic tune "America the Beautiful."

Live summit video from the 14,115-foot (4,302-metre) peak showed plumes of dark smoke billowing in the air, and a cog railway that ferries tourists up the side of the famous mountain was shut down because of the wildfires.

Now that you brought it up, I can’t say I’ve heard anything from the Regime about the fires. Not to worry. It only took them a month to say something about BP.

So long as it is the “evil” white people who are suffering, (getting what they deserve), Obama raising money for his reelection is alright.

Sad but true. I read it is the western suburbs of Colorado Springs that are threatened. High value homes, well-off owners. Also several mountain communities full of those self-reliant, anti-nanny-state types. Don’t look for FEMA to show up passing out phones, Visa cards, etc. In fact, don’t look for any rush of relief from the feds. If hussein had a son, he wouldn’t look like the Colorado evacuees, they’re not “his people” so don’t look for any interest.

The people in the areas burning don’t look like Obama. Most are white and we all know he hates white people and some of them may be Hispanic and we know he willingly let hundreds of them die so that he could push his anti-2nd Amendment agenda.
