Make it big enough to house all our criminals instead of releasing and re-arresting them. It's probably cheaper to keep them in a jail than what it costs to support them while they're out committing more crimes.

I love the thumbs-down without a dissenting comment. "I disagree completely with what you just said, but I have no idea why and can't formulate an argument in response!"

Gee, why not round it up up 10%, easier yet to calculate how much money is being taken to be pissed away by our "leaders".

Nothing here suggested to me that he wants to change "majority rules". But majority rules doesn't preclude "minority complaining". Even though it may be "getting old" to you it won't be changing anytime in the near future. Dem bashing is one of my favorite past times - so much material to work with.

I really don't care - since I think the sales tax in total is 7-3/4 --- I often wonder where that 3/4 of a cent goes :) would at least make it 8% and easier to figure.
