I fully understand just where/what the terrorist will target and attack. If you re-read my post you might see/hear/understand the sense of frustrated
irony I was alluding/expressing because federal monies authorized to address the issue is being spend inordinately in the Bumbphuck’s of this
And if I might add to that sense of frustration I feel: Mr. Bush has reneged on about $5 Billion he promised to NYC and stiffed NYS for almost the
entire amount that he promised.
And if that’s not enough of an insult, it’s states like NY State (and the other Blue states, by in large) whose income tax revenues subsidize so many
of the Red States.
Us folks in the NE have known that fact for years but have endorsing the principal because of our belief and understanding that not all have the
opportunities we have been presented with and a firm belief in the principle of belonging to a community where folks help each other.
You don’t hear from us folks or our representatives in Congress, “We’re tired of subsidizing those lazy bastards’s in the Red Sates. Let them go out
and work hard to earn their keep.” Do you?
That’s because be believe in community; accept the responsibilities; and do not complain. Many of those whines we hear from here who complain about
the “income tax burden” have no idea of what it is to REALLY pay taxes.
But then, we do get paid a living wage. That’s an issue you’ll have to address. (And to think you’ll hate unions and the like? Guess ya’ just can’t
figure some folk out at times.)
