Billions and Billions for landscaping. Not one red cent to keep illegals detained. This is your Federal Govt. at work. Next time you hit the gas pump, think of this: "Federal funding for such enhancements comes from a 10 percent set-aside from the federal surface transportation program 1.5 percent of overall federal highway funding, according to the Federal Highway Administration. An 18.4-cent-a-gallon tax paid by motorists funds the Highway Trust Fund, which is used to pay for highway and transit spending. Last week, Congress voted to leave appropriations at current levels for the next two years and transferred $35 billion in general funds to the trust fund to cover the anticipated expenses." - See more at: http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/news/local/public-landscaping-in-area-costs-millions-1/nPwLs/#sthash.gtVXFk0i.dpuf

“Shovel-Ready” I guess. Good use of my taxes.
To me one of the craziest thing are the sound walls they put up.
Miles of concrete walls placed along the beltways to protect the neighbors who stupidly bought a house right on the major highway from noise.
Great walls 20 feet high that could have been built on the border to stop the hordes coming in from Mexico.

This is why federal income tax resistance is justified in principle.

I had the misfortune of living in Dayton years ago. While there, we had two of the worst winters in local history, and the (slimy, sleazy, may they die many times) unions decided to strike and even sabotage electrical distribution in order to strengthen their case. Businesses were moving out of Ohio in droves, and the dim-bulb-crat governor responded by declaring that the state should (don’t know if they actually did) fine companies for leaving.
I’ll never, never, never, ever go there willingly again.
