Yeah, Forest Service owed you an answer. I am sure they need people like you. Wearing USFS gear while doing personal videos is obviously a no no but was an honest mistake. Hope you get hired back on.

You got it wrong. It aint about nanny state. It's about cheapen labour, in particular the paid kind. Volunteers, like large swaths of the population, are being pushed out of society.

Sorry, if this question has already been answered (maybe you can link me to a video that explains it in that case) how were you able to start homesteading from a financial perspective? Also, what is your profession outside of NOpost? Even if you're able to keep a largely self-sufficient homestead you still need to make money (even if it's just for a rainy day), right?

Ugh. The Volunteer Firefighting stuff hit way too close to home. Did it for 9 years. The politics of that world always seems willing to throw away trained qualified staff and then panic and try to find new volunteers. Usually because someone has a power trip.

You do need a ham radio your right I believe in studying for your licence my dad and and gather is huge in ham radio my dad has built a repeater in his back yard and when i was studying he gave me a hand held and pressed the importance of studying how people call their call letters and proper methods of comunicating.... so getting just a license and then jumping right on, as there so much more to learn....all those complainers have forgot what they did when they were studying..

There is nothing wrong with having the ham radio as long as your not transmitting. You can listen all you want I think the reason get bent out of shape about it is because there are so many people abusing the granted FCC bands improperly

Thank you for finally telling hams what a bunch of culture canceling twats they really are! All you have to do is look at what the digital modes have done to it.

Trust in Jesus Christ for salvation!! Don't go to hell!! "..the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night" Rev 14:11 We all need a Saviour because we "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Rom 3:23 Jesus Christ took the punishment we deserve "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" We broke God's law (10 commandments.. don't lie, steal, lust, dishonor parents...) Jesus paid the fine. "by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God" Repent and believe the Gospel! Turn from your sins and follow the ONE TRUE GOD. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life NO ONE comes to the Father BUT BY ME" Jesus is coming soon!!

I tried to do volunteer work for the Red Cross. To my great disappointment The organization turned out to be tied up with bureaucratic red tape that seemed to frustrate getting things done. We finally quit the RC and volunteered to work with a church group helping with hurricane recovery. If you want to get the job done forget the Red Cross. Volunteer with a Church group. They will be focused on delivering help and not doing paperwork.

You really should get back to telling people how to make pallet furniture and raise alpacas and do a lot less whining about how everything is so unfair. It's a lead-pipe cinch that the reason they didnt want you as a volunteer firefighter is that you would have spent more time playing Cecil B. DeMille with your Gopro than doing the grunt work of firefighting. You are the most entitled disgruntled white guy I've ever seen. I hope the authorities monitor your channel closely for when you eventually go all Billy Jack on the world....

Actually it is good enough reason his videos are monetized meaning he makes money off them, and if one of his videos had government uniform in it and he made money off of that video that can be grounds for dismissal, kinda how cops cant have their uniform displaying any patches or Identify marks if posting a video even if you dont make money off of it, it can still be grounds for dismissal because you are considered as a speaking body of that specific agency.

Let me get this stright. Your son wears one of your helmets with a logo of a Government agency and then they kick you out of their program? Really? That makes absolutely no sense at all. Why would anyone want to work for a department like that anyways? If I were you, I would feel fortunate that you found out their true colors early on. So petty , I would have hated to see what they would have done to you if you really did something wrong, like let your son sit in your fire truck and honk the horn and play with the sirin? They would have sent you stright too the gallows? or maybe even inplowed a firing squad for that offense for sure? You think I'm joking? I hate the fact you even apologized on camera for letting your son wear your service helmet. Those people do not deserve that from you. The type of bafoon action that was given and thrust upon you from this particular Government agency is just a little glimpse into our future dealing with Government. We all are better off not dealing with any Government agencies. Its my personal opinion that most Government employees now are Democratic Liberals with the exception of our Military? which most are still either Republicans or Libertarians. Thank God for that!! but even the Military is starting to turn a corner on that. Once we loose our Military and common sense thinking, we are done as a free society with Liberty and Justice. May God Bless you and your family and may God Bless The United States of America🇺🇸 Take care. Hawk out!!

One of the reasons that they may not have told you the reason for letting you go is that it is easier to defend "we don't need you" than it is to defend "you were let go because we were offended by your kid wearing your gear".

It’s hard, unfortunately not black and white. An ill placed bite to the face can damage eyesight or cause a fair amount of damage, and there does come a point where the risk to the child outweighs the desire to keep the animal. We can’t ever say the animal is more important than the kid, but it’s such a grey area.

I'm a ham radio operator and could care less if you have a radio lol. I'm more interested in what radio you have :P. In all honesty while I have a license I've sorta moved away from ham radio due to the political bickering that was going on. I only keep the ticket because its free to renew and from time to time I do use it. Lately I have been using GMRS (I am licensed for that as well) which has the added bonus of letting my family use the license as well.

Also listening to the story about the helmet, it was that type of politics that made me walk away from not one but 2 first aid squads, and I feel ya about missing it. I hear the calls go out and some of the back-up calls going second and third request and part of me wants to drive to the building and help, however I still remember how hard a select few fought to get rid of me because they didn't like a family member of mine, or about how the town council used a hobby of a friend of mine and I as an excuse to remove a squad chief who had done so much to help increase the number of volunteers (That town now has paid FD/EMS and the council blames the volunteers for it). Politics seem to ruin a lot for those who want to help out.

Just speculating here based on my experience working for corporations. The helmet thing sounds like a pretext rather than the real reason. They probably want people who they can have complete control over, not independent thinkers. They want soldiers who will follow orders rather than make their own decisions.
