The LuLac Edition #3212, May 16th, 2016
In an unrelated subject . In the CV n Sat. May 14 there was an article about the County Council "LOOKING INTO" putting a registration fee on ALL county vehicles. WOW what a cash cow that they could milk forever and ever. Also the initial fee of $5.00 would be paid but who says that would be locked in at that rate.
So very sad or elected officials. They cannot budget the monies they have now and they want more to mismanage.
This cannot happen.
Well okay I’m going to be in the minority on this one my friend but I think it’s a good idea. But it has to be implemented the right way. Here’s why I think it’s a good idea.
1. The cost is small and will affect everyone who has a vehicle. That includes people with multiple vehicles and people not paying property taxes. There has to be skin in the game for everyone. Or if you prefer, pain for everyone.
2. The monies collected should never go in the general fund. They should go into a specific account that pays down the debt.
3. If a business has multiple vehicles they can pay a combined fee. But it has to be fair. The vehicle of the business should not be the vehicle of the owner.
The County has done a good job in reducing the debt so far. But more needs to be done.
And if you could afford more than two cars, you can afford to pay per vehicle.
Plus it will help rid the county of front yard junkyards that aren’t good for anyone.
There are Trump people who say that Bill Clinton was a predator. And that Hillary Clinton enabled Bill. How did she enable them? Pick out Monica’s blue dress? Trump like Clinton made their own decisions. Wrong ones.
Here's that story:
Now Donald Trump keeps saying he wants to build a wall across the Mexican border to stop the flow of illegal immigration. Never mind that the current President has thrown out nearly a million illegally. Now I realize I’m just a guy who grew up in the Junction section of Pittston who might not understand how this wall thing works. But I must ask the following about the wall.
Who will build the wall?
Will they be union members?
How long will it take to build this wall?
Specifically will it take as long as the remodeling of the Panama Canal did? (Over 13 years).
What will be the cost?
Where do we get the money?
Will Congress appropriate that money?
If private industry builds it, do you mean to say that there will be no government funding?
If private industry fails like the banks, will your administration bail them out?
Or will this be a self funded wall?
How much of a share of my paycheck and Mrs. FB’s check will pay for the wall?
Oh wait, Mexico is paying for the wall.
Another set of questions.
How will we make them pay?
By making them pay, how will this affect the building of engines for Ford 150s in Mexico? (All those truckers need engines, right? No way to get to a rally without a pick up!)
Do we invoice them?
Will they pay with their currency or ours?
Will they pay in installments?
Do they take AMEX?
If they refuse to pay how do we enforce collection?
Do we hire the same joker from Scranton who was supposed to take care of the garbage fees?
Will there be uniform building and construction codes or will each state the wall is constructed in enforce their own set of regulations? Bulyah, States rights, henna?
If we go to war because Mexico won’t pay, will we self fund the war?
Or will Mexico pay for the war?
Finally you do know that illegal immigrants come in through Canada, and International Airports. Do we build a wall around them?
NOTE: See previous set of questions.
