the police and the fire department cant get by with cuts so i guess there best bet is to all quit and go to other states or the suburbs and then bing will have all the money he needs.

Gee Phil, there might be other options besides just quitting and moving, especially when suburban communities are cutting back as well. One option is to combine services with multiple communities to cut costs. Or just cut back the number of police and still maintain a living wage for those employed. I'd favor decriminalizing marijuana use and not writing tickets for minor traffic infractions too.

PS. You could do anything you want and Bing would never have all the money he thinks he needs.
