New fire stations and jetliner borate bombers are become the norm while fire sprinklers are too the norm and TAXED annually due to the added housing EXPENSE. Maybe everyone should pay off their loans and stop buying fire insurance or just buy the minimum coverage required? Then again maybe it is possible to create a Non-Profit called Personal Waste and write off all monies spent on duplicity and other household wasted monies. Just saying while thinking outside the box and doing the math.
