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:

City of Wichita allots less money for consumer water rebate program

Wichita Eagle
– ‎3 hours ago‎

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.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
