What bothers me is hearing how bad the economy is and at the same time bearing witness everywhere I look, to wasteful spending and terrible mismanagement of money. I see it from school kids to corporations.
I agree! I'm seeing the wasteful taxing and spending even on a local government level. Every small town/community is looking at ways to tax more, rather than cut back or conserve in some way. That just drives me nuts. In my town foreclosures are up, business is down, so the town is going to impose more taxes on the people that are left working. That is the same mentality we're seeing on a national level. Very exasperating!!
