Seems to me yohre saying that those responsible screwed us fair and square and that if we don't just accept it they will punish us by pulling MORE money out of a struggling economy.
Shut up and take it or we'll make it worse seems to be what you are saying.
I resent financial bullying, like what occurred in electrical deregulation a while back. Where the justification for gouging was NIMBYism that made it impossible to build new power plants.
Only problem with that is that it was power company demands to be able to build whatever types of plants they wanted to build wherever they wanted to build them that people objected to.
They wanted to build one directly upwind of a school here, for example, because it was cheaper for them to do so.
Not exactly the NIMBYism they were referring to.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
