I keep running into subsidies programs.
I’ve grumped about mail box farmers. I’ve cringed over corn subsidies. I’ve pointed certain fingers at food stamps. Stomped and twirled over abortions and the money spent on birth control give a ways. I’ve complained about government taking SS funds into the general money pool and then spending it. I’ve pretty well exhausted myself fretting about wind farms, poor roads, high road taxes, and chipped windshields on my vehicles.
I’ve even failed, once or twice, to curse when I cannot understand why sugar and butter subsidies, government buying programs and attendant storage costs, are not discontinued after a period of time – like when the prices for those commodes do rise.
Then I run into more things like this:

The city has offered a rebate program for people who buy water-efficient appliances for several years but this year will allot only $100,000 for water customers, which is less than in years past.
The ruddy government can mandate seat belts in vehicles, which they did. Then make their use mandatory. Which they did. And then make them unlawful not to use, which they did.
At no cost to the government, except processing the paperwork to collect fees for the tickets given.
Why in the name of Christ does the government have to continue paying the citizen to save money on crappers when they can mandate new stuff alone can be put into any repair or new construction?
I think that advertisement about SETTLERS – cable TV over Direct TV – has a point. I’m going to take up Foot Stomping.
At least I’ll have one hobby that combines tension relief with aggress an outlets and mindless activity.
That way I can grin and bear it when the seizures pass.
