  1. Gotta love the Gov.

    They announce money being “dedicated to a cause”, without a plan of how it will be used and how people who need it can get help…

    For the blinded tax payers, it sounds like they care for the people (ahead of elections).

    For the realistic tax payers, it’s too small of an amount to actually address the existing issues. Why this amount and what is the plan for it? (Who’s pocket is it lining?)
