Why should taxpayers cover scumbags?

 


As far as I am concerned, the knot-heads have struck again. I can’t understand why our borough assembly seems to always come up with stupid solutions to problems. Why should they punish law-abiding citizens for the acts of the scumbags who don’t obey the laws? Tell me why they can’t get the VIN number from the vehicles left along the road and determine the owners and punish them. Easy to do, and if the responsible party won’t pay the fee for taking care of the vehicle, attach their Permanent Fund Dividend. I sure as hell, as a responsible citizen, don’t want to pay my hard-earned retirement pay to this tax because a scumbag isn’t obeying the law. Wise up!
