    Default Plasma Screen Needed

    Hello my fellow firefighters. I'm a fire investigator in northern NJ and i am in great need of a new plasma screen TV. the stuff that my wife lets me buy is outdated by all standards by many years and i will also be going through the NFL playoffs very soon, and with the price of a plasma screen TV reaching into the thousands for a 60" i am in great need of money

    so if you can, please donate a dollar or so to my paypal it will be greatly appreciated

    Thank You Very Much,

    Read the thread "New Gear Needed" and you'll get it. I figured I have just about as much chance of success.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    And make sure you get the ambient lighting. It makes the screen seem bigger.

    But please make sure whoever takes Support 4 to the get-together doesn't run it through a wall... Or stop in their driveway to take pictures of themselves with a fire helmet from the 1950s and a short length of hose with both couplings cut off wearing a white shirt that was clean with a picture caption saying, "After a long night."
