And who pays??!!
I often hear people complain about the government spending money on something the people do not agree. "And who pays for it? We do! The tax payer!" I can't hear that anymore and my answer is: wrong! The tax payer doesn't pay anything. Well, he pays the tax, but that's it. Paying tax is a law, that's all. It doesn't buy us the right to contribute to how the money is used. It's the same when you stay a couple of nights at a hotel. Is it any of our business what the hotel manager does with the money? I don't think so. So far I never heard: "A new swimming pool? And who pays for it? We do! The hotel guests!"
