    Sure, why not? Either I help the community or I buy a more expensive car / house / what have you. By that standard it would be: Help vs. Greed. Is that what you meant?

    Let me put some bread crumbs down to help lead you to enlightenment. I realize you may not follow them.

    Here's a great basis for any logic in evaluating the Tea Party "tea-baggers", and the OWS "flea-baggers":

    When the Tea Party holds a rally in public park, if the law says that festivities must end at 8 PM, and no littering, the Tea Party participants will be out of the park by 8 PM, and they will have left it clean. And they will have an impact as they did in Nov 2010 on the political process. We call it the "Rule of Law".

    When the Flea Baggers hold a rally in a public park, they say "screw you" with regard to ordinances. They will camp and sleep and crap and litter. They will block traffic and disrupt other citizens trying to do their jobs. They will swear to stay in the park, trespassing, disrupting, "for as long as it takes" until they get their way. We call that "Mob rule".

    I know exactly how this will impact November 2012. If it even takes that long.

    Why don't you help your own community and let mine help itself? Why do you think it is the Federal Taxpayer's responsibility to fund local and state responsibility issues? You really believe kicking the can down the road is the answer? What happens when the Federal funds run out and where does it stop?

    How is this even relevant to what I just stated? Maybe I misunderstood your post.

    Ok. If it isn't the Federal Taxpayer's, whose is it? The states'? The cities'?

    Yes and yes, that is where it always has belonged and that is where it belongs. Giving he Federal govt. that responsibility is dangerous and blurs the lines between Federal and State responsibility. Find out what your parents pay in state and local taxes and where that money is supposed to go?

    LOL ... perhaps you should read some Napoleon: "Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake."

    Sometimes restated as: "When your enemy is marching off of a cliff, get out of the way".

    Well I am from Tennessee. Salaries and wages are not taxed. Sales tax is 6% - 7% with an option for cities to add 1.5% - 2.75% to that. (The sales tax where I am from is 9.25%). We have a property tax (last time I checked [few months back*] it was $1.43 per $100 assessed value but there is no cities tax.
