Why are you ignoring the fact that many of our wants and needs come with a price tag? There are no hostage tactics here and if there are, they exist only in your imagination. The price tag for a good education comes with price increases just as new homes, new cars, groceries etc. etc. do.<quoted text>
Yeah, but you won't fight to keep the money you earn in your pocket as well for your fellow residents that are NOT getting an increase in the social security, residents who have had work hours reduced, and lost employment altogether.... You rather give it to those that will flush it away with hostage tactics on public services.
Since you are being so generous with your wealth can you help me cover the recent 5% increase and proposed 10% increase for next semester for my daughther at CSUDH?
I managed my personal finances poorly and I asked you for help so you have to give me monetary assistance with no questions or objections....
If you choose to go through life with blinders on and just accuse those who are the closest to you for your own financial plight and refuse to take in the bigger picture, then so be it.
Now give me a few minutes will ya, I'm widening my fox hole for added comfort!!!
