The first thing that I thought after reading this article is that the HOA Grass-measurer’s have taken over.
For some reason this also brought back a memory of a Cartoon. It had this businessman walking into the large office area of his business yelling at the employee’s for making too many long distance phone calls. One of his employees said “But Sir, we spend millions of dollar’s every week here.” The businessman got a reflective look on his face and said “I really don’t understand millions of dollars” And then he yelled “But I DO UNDERSTAND a $45 phone charge!”
The point is, that many people in charge just don’t get the big picture and what their actions do within it. But they DO understand the little piddling things that annoy them so much.
I am starting to get the attitude, **I just don’t care if these idiot americans vote the jackass’s into office** they deserve what they get...
Yes. Many people forget about thousands of dollars they pay in taxes via payroll deduction but get excited over a lousy $300 refund. They accept ridiculously low dividends on thousands of dollars in savings but whine about a $1 ATM fee. If it is not an explicit bill it doesn’t hit their radar. If everyone got a monthly tax bill and had to write a check things would change awfully fast.
