It's only tax money.

I live in a town of about 8,000. We have a small municipal golf course. Running the clubhouse/golf course has always meant a $3,000 monthly deficit. The city is now finishing construction of a new $380,000 club house. It is expected to have a bigger monthly deficit. They figured out a way to do it without a bond issue. They are now complaining that the city will be short on money next year. Where do all these stupid people come from?

In my city, they announced that they were so far in the black one year, that they decided to give the police and fire dept personnel a raise, and boasted they there was still enough money in the coffers they they could landscape the entire city median. Well, the next year came around, screamed they were broke, and instituted a city, water and phone tax to the tune of 5% for everyone.
