COURTHOUSE: Slippin' And
A-Slidin'; Peepin' And
A-Hidin'! SAY WHAT?
As long as we have been spinning on this beautiful blue sphere in the universe, it never ceases to amaze us that elected officials seem about as predictable as a cat on a hot tin roof.
When THE PEOPLE recently voted in large numbers for what appeared to be their acceptance of a TAX, some Commissioners could not resist the impulse to believe that "Hey, they must think we are pretty important to have put a vote like that on us!" A large majority voted for a new hospital (tax).
Back off, Commissioner!
THE PEOPLE did not vote in favor of a tax in June of this year. . . neither (whether you believe it or not) did they vote in favor of you!
What THE PEOPLE voted FOR in June was their belief that our community needs a viable hospital to make us as safe as we can be from a health standpoint. Most of us believe in paying our way.
You gullible Commissioners can believe all you want that THE PEOPLE gave you a green light to do as you please, but the reality of it is explained in the paragraph above. And history!
