I'm going to go ahead and just post the first thing that came into my mind while reading this. It's long so get a cup of coffee or something first...
I recently submitted my opinion about Governor Walker's transportation budget to the LaCrosse Tribune. I usually don't bother dealing with the liberals there but a friend suggested this would be a good one for readers of the newspaper to consider.
This is how they replied:
Thank you for the letter you submitted last week. You are absolutely correct that the Wisconsin Counties Association, League of Wisconsin Municipalities, and Wisconsin County Highway Association praised the increase in local aid provided by Gov. Walker’s transportation budget. However, those organizations also have publically recognized that a budget shortfall remains. I’ve attached a notice at the end of this message detailing meetings the organizations are hosting this week to address the budget shortfall and find long-term solutions.
Governor Walker recently released a transportation budget that increases local government transportation aids by $65 million: an 8-percent increase for counties and a 4.7-percent increase for municipalities. It accomplishes this by re-prioritizing projects throughout the state instead of focusing only on urban centers and it does it while DECREASING bonding levels by 41-percent.
It’s such a good plan that the Wisconsin Counties Association, the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, and the Wisconsin County Highway Association issued a joint press release praising the new budget proposal.
This video of Mr. Chaffetz nailing the FBI is a perfect example of why #iMissAmerica.
Our nation no longer follows the rules that were established at its founding. We are supposed to be a nation where the citizens of the United States are at the top of the 'food chain.' Then, the representatives of the people are the second tier and they report directly to the people.
The government - in this situation, the FBI bureaucracy - is not following those rules. They are acting like they are the top tier and that they can tell the Congress what they will and will not do.
I miss America and I pray for a time when she will return and THE PEOPLE will be back in charge of this out-of-control federal bureaucracy.
