Self Interest Rules

There was a statement in a local news item the other night that sort of sums up America today, I think. I don't remember what the item was about, nothing important, but it said that Mayor Sanders could not be reached for comment because he was in Washington "meeting with federal officials in an effort to head off military spending cuts" which could cost jobs here.

Because San Diego is so much more important, you know, than the nation as a whole, and people throughout the entire nation should pay more taxes so that people in our little city can have jobs.

I remember in Central La. a few years back there as all kinds of political wrangling to keep England AFB open. It was a very small base as such things go but it pumped a huge amount of money into the local economy. The politicians brayed, the locals had rallies, and the base still closed.
No one will be closing the naval facilities down your way, but loss of numbers have a ripple effect.

I don't think that our taxes will be affected one way or other if military spending is lessened.
