THE REASON HIGHER-UPS in government ask for more money is because they are educated, and that is what you are paying for – their smarts. For example, you would pay more for a mill supervisor than you would for a floor sweeper. That is how society works. Education equals money.
A NEW $1.2 MILLION “public trail” at the Augusta Canal; an absurd amount; and somebody’s getting rich off the taxpayer – again. Did our founders ever spend a million bucks for a trail?
