4000 acres near Black Butte Ranch is burning, 60 miles away from Timberline Lodge and this is being emphasized on Ch 8 news in preparation for Shrub's arrival to talk about logging forests to prevent them from burning...

The timing of it is strange 21.Aug.2003 15:12

Shredded Wheat

Before people bestow a tinfoil hat on my head, does anybody find the timing of that fire at Camp Sherman a little weird? More fuel for the fire for so-called president Bush to promote his raping of our forests.

It seems chaos reigns supreme everywhere the Shrub is.

Fires were set for Bush's photo-op, it seems 29.Aug.2003 16:15


Yes, it seems the fires were set on purpose. I have a friend who lives in the area. She asked me to get this message out. She said that there were no lightening strikes for at least two weeks, maybe even three weeks. Two fires (or was it three?) started at the same time, right before Bush's visit. She believes some loggers started them. She's not happy. Her air quality is affected and ashes are falling on her property. You gotta admit, it's all very suspicious.
