Home Commentary Open forum V.I. GETS $100M BRIDGE LOAN; TAX REFUNDS TO FOLLOW



Paying off a few people with income tax money which is, by the way, your money to begin with, is a form of payoff to keep the people pacified. I myself am not going for this last desperate act by the government to cover all the waste and runaway spending this government does.
While the government workers sit by to find out if their workweek has been cut back, the real government — the governor and his cohorts in crime, the Senators — drive their four-wheel-drive gas-guzzling vehicles.
When the governor says that cutting back on government cars would not do anything I wish to take issue with this. I put spare money in a jar and I now have $900. Anyone who knows anything about money knows that saving accumulates. Of course this government would say this, for they have never even attempted to save anything except their own jobs.
