    Re: Government fund pays to spay stray animals in order to fight human obesity.

    Seems like you should quote someone then instead of addressing the entire thread.
    Yes, you are correct. Because the corruption issue immediately preceded my post, and because you are the OP, I assumed you would make the connection. My mistake, I'll do better in the future.

    It's this very attitude that is the cause of the problem. They're nickel and diming us to death. 7.5 million may be a drop in the bucket to us comparatively, but this isn't an isolated incident. You have to realize there are thousands, and thousands and thousands of such instances where this kind of waste takes place. And you have to remember, this was for only ONE city!
    Each citizen, each community, each city, each county, each state always looks out for number one - themselves. I refer you to Ron Paul who proudly goes for earmarks for his state despite his personal disgust with Federal intervention and spending. It's natural to spend locally, not globally. I wish MY city had gotten the money instead.

    I guess that's your problem, you refer to our political system as two parties and consider there is no alternative. The libertarian party has plenty of solutions, you just don't care to hear them. Hell, Ron Paul has been screaming about drastically reducing the deficit for well over a decade now, and this is exactly why he doesn't belong in the republican party, he's a black sheep.

    Next election we can vote for the socialist left (Dems) or the socialist right (GOP), or we can go for an alternative that actually will try to make real cuts to our deficit
    Yup, that's pretty much it. It may (or not) comfort you to know that I am a Ron Paul supporter, albeit for reasons that might differ from yours. The problem IMHO isn't the socialism, it's the corruption (although I didn't find that relevant to TNR programs). I would love to see a very different America, loosened fro the Federal yoke. I don't speak of RP much here because I'm also a member of another board where RP get plenty of lovin'.

    That was my (unanswered) question earlier in the thread. I've never heard of TNR for dogs. Cats, yes, I'm involved with that oersonally and cats rarely injure humans and they do participate in rodent control. So, I find the whole claim a bit spurious but I'm not in a position to judge at a distance.

    Our leaders should be spayed.

    Neutered actually. Although spaying the wives as well would help.

    I guess I can see that. The first few times I linked something I was kind of surprised at the outcome. I just figured most people checked before they posted. *shrug*

    It wasn't the tax part (though I don't agree with that short-term) - but "from the rich" is plainly a class-specific comment.

    Eh, doesn't matter I guess. We both agree things need to change. Hopefully we both agree that Congress needs to get it's collective uh "self" together and move forward instead of rowing in circles.
