Stimulus Check. Hurrah.

Got my $1200 today. Oh, glorious. Immediately wrote a $1600+ check to pay the first installment of my real estate taxes. So I am stimulating the local school teachers, certainly, but not much myself.

It really hurts when I look at the long list of 'services' and especially at the list of various pensions we all are paying for. Pensions are over 1/4 of the total tax bill.

Hmm, seems to me most small towns have volunteer-staffed libraries. And don't get me started on the Taj-Mahal new library they are building right now. Who knows how many new staff they will be demanding to run the place.

The government at all levels certainly seems to hate low-income people.
