Oh, but they are just ENTITLED to a free living!
We handed out $5 to a hobo who came into the place we ate out at last night. Came right up to the table and interrupted the meal asking for a hand out. $5 cost less than pulling out my carry weapon and getting into all of that.
So, I think Cities just provide support to keep a lid on it all. Until one day, it runs dry.
That day is coming when we gotta.........
There starting to let out "non violent" criminals around here now. I sure hope Vt dosn't turn into one. I've started to carry again in the 2 large cities, for around here "large". Bad sign.
Has, or had when I was there, the distinction of being the highest per capita capture of most wanted criminals.
When bad guys want too disapear.
Hell, aint a much better place than the wilds of Vermont.
Keep yer powder dry. :cheers:
Oh ya, the northeast kindom is a place that you can pretty much disapear if you want to, lots of deep woods to get lost in. Brattelboro and Bennington areas, in southern Vt, still gets it's share of drug dealer arrests from people comming out of Mass and NYC, seems to be a "hot bed" for those activities as well as St Johnsburry area in northern Vt. and Rutland area in central Vt. I could care less about weed but all the hard drugs that are turning up around here kinda has me worried, there has been an influx of heroin, oxycodone and all that kind of shit recently. Just like anywhere else it's getting worse all over,not anything like when we were younger.
What exactly do you believe taxes should pay for? Police? Firefighters? EMS? Road repair? Water and sewer services? Libraries? Schools? What exactly?
No different than the big cities.
I lived in a lot of different places, Vermont being one of them.
Now living is a small community, swamp :) in Florida.
The dangers are not much different than big city life.
Just being in small towns, everyone knows everyone else's business and we hear more.
Police, emergency services, roads, utilities, etc, are a red herring. Those are services that everybody uses, that for the most part can't be practically provided by the private sector. The competitive model doesn't really work when there is physically only room for one road, one utility, etc. As for schools, I would say that those who choose to have children, should bear the entire cost of their education. Nothing against people having kids, but why should I have to pay to educate my neighbor's 5 kids in addition to my one?
:fruit: i smell a troll :fruit:
I didn't call any names. I asked a couple of simple questions. I don't see the need to immediately divide the country into them and us on every topic. If you don't like what I have to say then don't read my posts. But you won't drive me away or stop me from speaking my mind by calling me a troll.
