Just So You Know Where Your Tax Dollars Are Going
Taxation without representation?

From WhiteHouse.gov;
In California, the first round of projects on lands managed by the forest service will include maintenance and construction on facilities, roads and trails totaling 70 jobs and $7.75 million. The jobs are estimated to last from four months up to a year.That's $110,714.28 per person to build nature trails? Ummm... and what happens at the end of the 4-12 month period?

But if you think 110 grand per person is utterly stupid to spend on a bunch of dirt paths in California, how about what's happening in the Greater Los Angeles area?

Check this out from 24Ahead.com;
$183,333 per person, for 3 people to improve the pedestrian crossings at El Dorado and Bromwich.

$180,000 per person, for 5 people to (yet again) improve the pedestrian crossings at Commerce Avenue.

$172,840 for 1 person to demolish trailers.

$166,667 per person, for 12 people to install new left turn improvements.
Where do I get a piece of this action?
