Random Thought by James Stuckey

I just heard that the Obama administration wants to add a $7.50 fee, each way, on round trip flights to raise $26 billion in revenue. Over the weekend, it was reported that the IRS sent $4 billion in phony refunds to mystery people in China and Latvia. I also read that 107 million Americans are now on welfare or other government programs, while only 104 million have full time jobs. In other words, government subsidies is our largest employer. Second, to being paid not to work, is being employed by the government. Having a real private sector job is now a distant third. With all this waste, and with so many living off the public till, why should those of us that have (or had) real tax paying jobs pay more?  Am I the only one who sees that we are on the way to financial collapse?
