Pretty soon, marriages between two faggots will be illegal, as soon as Amy Barrett is sworn in. Next, it will be illegal for faggots to have butt sex or oral sex, like it used to be illegal. Then maybe they will be more discrete, like they used to be. They need to quit swishing around like they are women.

Trump was right that the State of California is not performing proper forest management by removing dead trees and decay like they used to before budget allocations took money from the California Conservation Department and gave it to illegal aliens.

Notice the Midwest, Mountain and Southern states don't have raging forest fires every month. You would think Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Idaho would be burning like California but they are not because they take care of their forests.

68% of the Forests in California are Federal Land.
If Trump wants "proper forest management", it's his responsibility.
Funny how his ignorance keeps biting him on the ass, isn't it

Gay people are not going to like the Supreme Court for the next few decades.

Are these the same fires where about half of the large ones were started by arsonists? Fires on Fed land are fine to burn, its nature taking place. Where they intrude into populated areas, THAT is where management needs to occur and cannot without significant permit costs, delays or outright rejection.
