Some where in an ill spent life I’ve heard a proposal for government to move secure funds from one account they could not touch, to the general funds they could touch.

I dwelled upon the thought for a time and realized that President Johnson said that given we could have guns and butter, if we moved the Social Security funds from its protected status to the general funds.

One knows how that worked out. About as well as welfare does.

So when I read the following I shook my head and adopted a sorrowful, pensive mode:

Senate bill fight kicks into high gearu

WICHITA, Kansas – – A statewide, month long initiative to put the clamps on a Senate bill is underway. Senate Bill 463 is aimed at redirecting highway money to the state general fund.

It is a fight worth waging. It isn’t a fight worth having with the idiots that propose the deal, however. But aberrant as the proposal is, maybe just shooting the proposer would be the kindest action to future generations. Or ship the fellow off to Russia and let him live there.

No budget can survive funds redirection. Do a new budget next year.

About tenwhiskey

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.
