Poor things. I am sure they are sitting at the country club (wait- one of their clubs is in ruins, I believe. Their trust fund money must have dried up!!!!) fretting over the state budget. Guess they will have to come up with more evil plans to extort the lowly everyday taxpayers.

Don't celebrate just yet. The final budget hasn't been passed yet and it will take the House to make sure it isn't vetoed by the govenor. Remember, when I said this is road money and will go to another road project in another part of the state not to education, etc. Read the full story.

Stowe is by no means filthy rich. He hired some perty smart estate lawyers to keep his little trust fund protected so as not to pay squat compared to us simpletons(as he calls us). And he does have a little bit of "too much inside information". Dirty money lines the pockets of dirty politicians and estate lawyers. This is no secret. Again, never earned a red cent by himself. His few business ventures went belly-up. And we all know his opinions are the Bible. He just doesn't care that most simpletons and his few "employees" are on his payroll just for the paycheck. Not that they are there for the loyalty or liking of him.
