Ah, its fascinating to hear about J. Paul Browns priorities. Hes hard at work trying to save our dollars by focusing on things like ethics training for certified public accountants. Thatll take a huge hunk out of the deficit for sure! Who needs ethical CPAs anyhow? A couple hundred million or so of those trainings declined and were in the black!
Its heartening to hear he has problems with complaints from the public. Memo to J. Paul: Thats what youre paid to do even if they disagree with you.
Hes against knowing what chemicals the gas and oil industry is pumping into the ground but for a bill that would make it illegal for food stamp recipients to get cash out of ATMs near strip clubs.
Ive never heard such an idiotic idea. Imagine trying to enforce it. If you just happen to live near a strip club, the state is going to tell you that you cant access your own money near your own home? Sounds like big government to me.
Does he really think if someone wants to go to a strip club that this bill will stop them? Theyll just go to the next ATM.
What next? No cash if youre near a liquor store? Somewhere that sells cigarettes? Movie theaters? We sure as heck dont want those freeloaders having any fun.
Brown is against nearly anything governmental, yet his sheep have grazed national forest lands for years, so his livelihood is completely subsidized by the federal government. Oops, us. Hikers in the wilderness are subjected to the waste from his sheep every time they go. Its on trails, around lakes, creeks, everywhere.
He tirelessly defended the need for publicly funded predator control on his land for years.
Brown should try to concentrate on whats important and will really reduce deficits, and stop wasting our time worrying about where poor people get their cash from ATMs. He might even consider not receiving governments subsidies, refusing your Medicaid or controlling his own predators.
Naw, its good government if it benefits Brown.
