What Country Do I Live In?

In case you don't follow Contra Costa County news, the latest is that the District Attorney's office has mandated that we don't prosecute misdemeanors anymore. Can you even imagine what this will do to our county? I was talking to our mayor, Jim Davis at church yesterday and we talked about how this will make all of the homeless want to move to our county. Just think....free food, free health care, and now they can have all the drugs they want in their posession and not be prosecuted. In addition, if they are running a little short on drug money, they can assault someone, steal their cash, and get off free. I never thought I would see the day when something like this would happen in America. In the meantime, we are spending untold amounts of money to pay for lawyers for NON-CITIZENS!!! We have so much money going to help illegal immigrants, but not enough to pay for the protection of tax payers. What is this country coming to???!!!

Can you check the link?

I believe it is a general rule of government, that when funding cuts occur, you cut the government function that has the most significant, immediate effect on the taxpaying citizenry first. This way they are more susceptible to agreeing to more taxes!

Thanks Looney, I hope I have the link fixed now. :)

I love how you put it and I totally agree. I hope they reverse the bad decisions they are making soon before too many people take advantage of the "freebies".

That is odd...

What kind of a decision is that?

Anyway, about money going to the non-citizens' lawyers: illegal immigration must be dealt with somehow (the state either legalises the ones that are already there, or expels them after checking the status of their kids and how they will be after expelling their parents - it is a sensitive issue...we have the same problem here).

Cheers
