Then why would ANYONE pay $75/yr to the FD? The FD is not supported by tax dollars, so the money has to come from somewhere. If no one pays the 'insurance', then the FD will go broke - and then NO ONE will have fire protection. Do you want a Nanny State - which is essentially communism - or do you subscribe to the basic principle of Personal Responsibility? It's really that simple.
I believe it is a city fire department supported by the tax payers...so those taxpayers are expected to pick up the tab for a non tax payers loss. This is about personal responsibility...this guy failed to exercise personal responsibility and now it’s time to pony up the price! Sorry man you place your bet you take your chances!!
Here in minnesota a police chief burned down his girlfriends bussiness so that he could save it....ahhh he started a fire to impress her by saving her...but it got out of control...and so half a city block burned up...anyway...I had a point....
Elected officials...A few go power mad...and will burn down their own house,city,country?...on a whim?
When I was in detroit every weekend for 2 yrs..I saw many city blocks with only 1 or 2 houses left standing...on weekends the residents..like to start big fires..and then |||PARTY\\\ around them harrass the firemen ect..Who is paying the fee for that?
EVERY one who can afford it should drive through south and west detroit ...then cross the bridge into Winsor...
Bring a Liberal with you.
