    That's one of the most outrageous comments I've read here on DK.  Government jobs are entirely dependent on a vibrant taxpaying community.   As we speak the CPS is begging the taxpayer for more $$$ to fund their wage increases.

    Your depiction of a economic community entirely dependent on government jobs has never existed, even in communist states (past or present) it has never been the case.

      to acquiring vanity corporate headquarters would more than pay for what the schools need. It's a matter of political priorities, not revenue.

      Remember what happened when we turned the country over to that dumbass rich kid? So now we're thinking about doing it again? Really?
