RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
It concerns me that we the people still think of "the state" as different from us. The state IS us. We can argue about and work towards better efficiencies (frankly in ALL large organizations in my experience, public or private), but I find it disconcerting to set up this discussion as us versus the state.
And... I think I get a pretty good deal for my taxes. I sure don't want have to pay a toll every 10 miles I drive or pay in the moment I call for the police or pay individually for fumigation when a health disease breaks out or... on and on.
And, one more thing... is anyone going to mention the cost of returning our kicker checks to us?! Keep my money and spend it well.
We all need to keep working together on that last issue - spend our money well - but I say keep my money!
