Somene please explain to me why my property taxes go to fund a place where John Q. Citizen (and Juan Q. Noncitizen) can go to rent Talladega Nights without having to pay for it.
What was the function/mission of the public library system 15 years ago and what is it today?
Is it so that kids can get books? They have access to the same books at their school library.
What I see when I go to the library is people walking up to the checkout counter with stacks of DVD's in their hands. (waits patiently for the hyperventilating liberals to attempt to type, with shaky fingers, that I am such a hypocrite because I've been to the library)
When I look at my end of the year property tax statement and how it gets broken down I see important things like police, TVFR (fire), schools... then I see the library. The first three all have bonds, I say we take the library money and give it to the important stuff and let Juan Q. Noncitizen get his spanish language DVD in from the library in Mexico.
