Re: Cities?

I didnt like my taxes bailing out banks but I had no choice but to still pay them. I think we should have let those greedy Motherfsckers burn. To Big to Fail is a load of bullshit from Faux News.

facts matter


Just thought I would point out, Fox news and most of the conservative talk hosts were adamantly AGAINST the bank bailout. "to big to fail" was a quote from the Obama administration, yet the bulk of these posts blame the conservatives for it. Sounds like you need to get your facts straight. You may be supporting the side you don,t believe in!

Yes but it was the Bush admin that did not want to regulate anything and allowed the housing finance bubble to grow and then pop. Most of the bailouts were already in progress before Obama was sworn in. That said I am for a real balanced budget every year. If a war is that important then pay for it as you go. In fact when they vote to go to war they vote to pay for it in a separate war tax. Don't wrap yourself in the flag if you are not willing to buy the flag.

Back to the subject at hand. It is alright for the government to help fund the fiber builds but they should treated like a private cable company. Taxes should not be charged to people that do not use the service. Like water if you do not use it there is no cost to the individual homeowner. The government should just provide the fiber and let private content providers provide the content.

You don't realize that every faction (in this case the people, government, banks, and corporations) have their own needs and desires, agendas and goals.
It's much more complex than you are spouting up.
