The "natural disaster" thing always cracks me up. Every region of North America suffers from almost expected natural disasters and yet only the Pacific Northwest gets that attention.

Always more excuses.

It's because we don't actually have that many so they always make the news on the other hand flooding, hurricanes, and other stuff in the Southeast is business as usual the jet stream smashes the Northeast for weeks a year. Sure we have fires but most of them are due to mismanagement of the lodge Pole and white pine forests the last 80 some years. Lodge Poles need fire to reproduce, they need fire to thin the underbrush and saplings after the initial fire. There's something we call fire trimming, if you've ever walked through the central Idaho forests you'll see sickly intermittent malformed branches all the way up to the top of the trees, we call them suckers, these are supposed to be burnt off by small fires as the trees grow. These are the reason the fire is able to climb to the tops of the trees so well, mix that with a fuel layer that can be up to 10-20 feet deep in places that haven't burnt you get terrible hot fires that cook and torch trees.

And the short growing season thing isn't that big a deal, if anyone says that they don't know what they are talking about, some guys who don't know jack about farming spewing shit on the internet that I doubt has spent time in agriculture, and most likely lives in the suburbs shouldn't be your source of a growing season over an actual farmer or farm kid.

I always love it when other people get it. There's always the issue of the removal of non-Whites to fix politics. True, there are some liberal whites, but it's not as if they would have any measurable political power after we're done creating the NAR. The "liberalism" thing has always been my personal favorite excuse. It's like people go out of their way to avoid understanding that we're not asking permission.
