  • Your taxes pay police officers, public officals, road construction, EMT's just to name a few. Are you calling them lazy idiots too?

  • btw, I do not think that service members are lazy, just to make that clear. Just those scamming the government to get money.

  • I know that some of my tax money pays for beneficial things (like the military, police, roads, schools, libraries), and that's fine. I think that such things should be paid for by the citizens.

    I also know that some of my tax money pays for non-beneficial things. I won't list them because I don't want to unintentionally offend someone. I want more say in how my tax dollars are spent. I want less debt, fewer hand-outs, more transparency and accountability.

    You don't want to go there. My husband is a policeman and has spent 20+ years in the Army. My brother is a policeman. My brother, sister in law, nephews and nieces are firemen. My sister in law and nephew and nices are EMTs - They work hard for their money. Which I might add is very little due to the lazy idiots that won't flip over in their beds.
