I remember when I first came to Mesa in 2001, everything was booming. You couldn’t find a parking space at Wal-Mart and all the check-out lights were on and the lines were 10 shopping carts long. I just came back from my Monthly trip to Wal-Mart and was struck by how deserted and down-sized it has become. My Fry’s Supermarket had hordes and hordes of winter visitors, shopping carts full to the brim with top-of-the-line liquor and huge roasts. We “locals” dreaded going shopping. Now we go and there are just 2-3 lanes open because no one is buying anything. Full to the brim shopping carts are as extinct as the dinosaurs.
No shoppers mean no tax revenues, but our Mesa mayor and city council are still spending ever-shrinking tax revenues like drunken sailors.
Obama and the Democrats are stuck in the Clinton Era when America had tax money coming in, hand-over-fist.
The Liberal News Media (newspapers and the TV) berate the “Tea Party” for wanting to talk about the deficit, fiscal responsibility or the fiscal cliff. The Democrats hate being reminded that out of every single dollar that is spent on Obama-Care, Medicare, Medicaid, disaster relief, un-employment compensation, and all the other so-called entitlements, that 40 Cents are having to be borrowed from the Red Chinese People’s Army Pension Fund.
America now owes our enemy, communist China, trillions and trillions of America’s non-existent tax dollars. Folks, this is madness that has got to stop now.
