I started smelling smoke on Sunday. Texas is in the midst of its worst drought in recorded history, fires are raging all over the state, and the federal government has told the volunteer firefighters to go home: We have it all under control.
Thousands of scorched acres and hundreds of burned homes say otherwise.
What they say loud and clear is that Ron Paul is right about FEMA and the federal government's mismanagement of, well, everything.
I realize that it wasn't FEMA who sent those firefighters home. It was the U.S. Forestry Service, the same bunch who is letting firefighting planes sit idle on the ground. It's all the same, though. Federal alphabet soup bureaucracies who invariably do more harm than good.
