Re: “Chron: State Budget Crisis Will Hit Right-Wing Areas Hardest

We are a poor county here in Modoc, but you are all headed down the same road with this economy. None of us will get the same social services, no, not even you who pay so much and ask so little. We don't have street light, no sidewalks, not even a lot of paved roads, no amenities like parks, heated pools, aviaries, zoos, and other things paid for by the government. Are not your schools and hospitals subsidized? We don't have people living on the streets. We don't need soup kitchens. And, no, we don't give them money to make it look good.
We are a dumping ground for your murderers and people you want parolled somwhere that they cannot hurt anyone. We even get your unwanted mountain lions. Our children have found them denning in the sheds where they wait for the school bus, build by their parents so their children don't freeze to death while waithing for the bus to take them 30 miles to school
Most of us here are RETIRED, the jobs are Government jobs, all paid for by you. You come up here to hunt, camp, enjoy our scenery. If were you live is so great, why do you come here to get away?
We live on little, and do alot with it. You can't even pay your rent for what we live on for a month. Should I move there so you can pay me even more in Social security and other free benefits? Maybe you shouldn't judge a whole county by an article written by a biased liberal with 2 extreme representatives of our people listed in the article. I've lived here 16 years, and never even met a hippie that lives here.
