Mr. LC has a customer who doesn’t like her new shower because the water pressure is too low. There isn’t much he can do about that, since the government mandates how much water can flow out of a shower head. He used to be able to take them apart before installation to remove the regulators, but not anymore. The manufacturers changed the designs of the shower heads, I guess the government bureaucrats got wind of the solution to the problem they created. He said “What is it with these people who are fine with regulating other people’s showers, but they don’t want to live with it themselves.” Well, that’s your typical liberal.
It’s like the liberals who vote for higher taxes and then complain when they realize they have to pay the higher taxes. They always think someone else will pick up the tab. Some woman down in Texas is having a hissy fit because her property taxes skyrocketed. Guess how she voted!
“I’m at the breaking point,” said Gretchen Gardner, an Austin artist who bought a 1930s bungalow in the Bouldin neighborhood just south of downtown in 1991 and has watched her property tax bill soar to $8,500 this year.
“It’s not because I don’t like paying taxes,” said Gardner, who attended both meetings. “I have voted for every park, every library, all the school improvements, for light rail, for anything that will make this city better. But now I can’t afford to live here anymore. I’ll protest my appraisal notice, but that’s not enough. Someone needs to step in and address the big picture.”
She voted for all of that, now she has to pay for it. That’s the “big picture.” What did she expect?
