if they could find a way to actually make a fair system to hand the money out, I wouldn't be so negative of their programs. but as it is, I think
they are both unconstitutional.
In upstate NY they have this thing they've been trying to get off the ground for years now called Destiny USA. it's amazing just how much they can
stretch the laws, or downright break the laws, just to give this guy the money to build this danged thing, while keeping the impression alive that the
taxpayers isn't paying the tab. the kicker for me was when they wanted to use public domain to evict somewhere around 10-20 established businesses
for thier land. It's NY for crying out loud!!! Every business is struggling to make a profit, they all could use a little help, and none should
have that kind of headache (last nail in their coffin in the case of some of these businesses!!), handed to them by the government.
so, I think the whole mess is quite unconstitutional. In a country where far too many are struggling to keep their businesses running, or paying
their medical bills, or keeping the roof over their heads, or food on the table.......where in the constitution does it give the government the power
to decide just what criteria should be used to help just a few.....what gives them the power to determine who is worthy of this help, and who
isn't....in some cases, which business or individual should live and which should die.....
by the way, I thought virginia would be different, it isn't....happened again....
a coworker has found a new place to live and is moving, we are looking to move. we've already decided that the place she is moving to is a little
too steep for our budget, but there's another one we are interested in, the rent is more reasonable....
she found the rent for the one that we decided to check into too steep....
why the difference of opinion??? her rent is subsidized if she rents from the higher place and isn't at the cheaper one.....we're not relying on
subsidies for our rent, so well, her choice isn't feasible for us. we'll be lucky if we find a place that isn't in the slums....
