Pretty funny, ain't it?
When people think others are living off them, they don't like it..., until they find out they're actually living off others!
My road doesn't get fixed or swept. If need be, I can plow my own road. When the road floods, guess who goes out shovel-in-hand & fixes the problem??? I pay nearly $3K/yr. in property taxes for having fire & police at the ready, should I ever need them. Most of what I pay goes to Boston to pay for the "BIG DIG" (the rest to the corrupt govt. in the city) which I may use once in my entire lifetime. --- how is it that us rural people are living off city people???
