The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
I have been wondering for a while how "greed on Wall Street" is always being blamed while government greed is never even mentioned.
At least now I see someone has mentioned it.
Also, with all the talk about "windfall profits" on oil companies, the *only* group I've seen get true windfall profits (vastly more money without having to work for it) is government which took in vast droughts of tax when property values went up.
This gives reason for hope, methinks.
I notice that people are commenting on gas prices not falling as fast as oil prices. Which is fair. But compared to the fact that property taxes are still going up while the prices of houses have dropped through the floor completely escapes notice. Hello?
Property taxes have become, truly, taxation without representation. There should at least be weight added to property owner's votes. Either that, or get rid of the taxes.
