    Yes, We have to take money out of our pockets that is so difficult to earn because the government does not know how to provide prosperity, (instead of incentives for investment they raise taxes so potential investors will not invest). Then they do not know why crime is so high.
    Instead they are too busy sending money to the diplomates in NYC and sending Camillio to Barbados for that countries celebrations.
    Doesn’t it sound like some priorities are wrong, instead of maybe caring for the people?
