    Well, sometimes government is the answer. My argument is that MORE government is usually not the answer.

    Govenrment when you need it or want it is okay, but more often you get it anyhow, when neither needed nor wanted.

    Not arguing that, I see plenty of waste all over. Just tired of the detractors, who frequently become 'customers'. That's our big buzzword now.

    That is not government this is local help/support. All of the EMS, Fire fighters, Police officers are our family members and friends.
    But of course "we" are the government. So it is but it isn't, hope you understand.
    The point is, when you hear "government" please think "family and friends" not some big agency with endless resources that comes out of nowhere whenever summoned.

    Government, as an entity, is needed. Nobody doubts that. EMS/Fire/Police - no doubt. Ministry of Silly Walks - well...

    PEF - I think you're trying to start an argument!

    It's kind of like how some people have a sudden and insatiable desire to talk about vampires after the Twilight series became popular, except zombies are much less gay and more likely to exist one day

    Well, if you call for help, you better hope it doesn't get directed to the White House because they'll just tell you to suck it up while your door is beeing kicked in.
