Teabagger wants welfare

Posted By on Fri, Jul 31, 2009 at 11:58 AM

Gotta love it. A reliable source provides a report from the Pulaski Quorum Court meeting Tuesday night. One of the noisy "Tea Party" activists apparently spoke on the need for more sheriff's patrols in the rural parts of the county. THEN, he went off on a tirade about taxes. Deputies should work for free apparently and maybe GM could contribute free patrol cars with Exxon throwing in the gas.

The teabagger also complained about the "tax" charged for garbage collection in rural Pulaski. That service is currently running a $100,000 monthly deficit, subsidized by taxpayers who contribute to the general fund but get no garbage pickup. The collection fee hasn't risen in four years. Somebody asked the teabagger if he thought electric, gas, water and phone bills were "taxes."
