Recently we had one of the largest fires in Arizona history.Do you know how they put it out?The fire ran into the White Mountains which is Indian Reservation.The Indians are not under the same asinine strict rules the forest service has on our national forests.

The Indians know something about loving and caring for their land.They periodically clear out the dead trees and underbrush which is fuel for fires.This fire ran out of fuel when it hit the reservation and was manageable enough to put out.

This country is insane with punitive rules and regulations. b It’s time to start again with a New America.
