A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

It's that other government I want to get rid of, not the one that saved my house!
A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

Look at the shirt of this guy shaking hands with the firefighters who just saved his house: "Lower Taxes and Less Government = More Freedom."

Here's how AP captioned the photo:

Homeowner Brad Craig, right, thanks departing firefighters who he said saved his home from a wildfire Saturday morning, Aug. 22, 2015, in Okanogan, Wash. Craig said that the team of firefighters saved his home from burning down after he saw flames advancing earlier that morning. Out-of-control blazes in north-central Washington have destroyed buildings, but the situation is so chaotic that authorities have "no idea" how many homes may have been lost.

It should be captioned, "Dude, sorry for destroying your 'freedom' to have your house burned down."

This "government taker" probably has no idea that Republicans cut the emergency funding for fire services, either.
