There seem to be no boundaries today on how our tax dollars are spent or wasted. Death, bailouts, foreign aid, sports, shrimp on treadmills and someone building beside the ocean. When the building gets washed away, why are the taxpayers expected to pay for building back on the property?
Non-working Americans live as well as the working, taxpaying folks, but itís the working folksí tax dollars that the non-workers live on. When our house burned, we had no insurance and no money, but we didnít get FEMA funds from the government. We put it back one piece at a time.
Whatever happened to the non-whining American who takes care of his own problems without crying to government? Politicians spending tax dollars so they will get re-elected makes for unhappy taxpayers.
