Does it not become

Does it not become embarrassing, or perhaps infuriating that the county budget and the school budget could be so absolutely contrary to one another. The county, funded with a garishly opulent transient occupancy tax versus the school budget funded with decimated resources from the state, illustrate the inequity of a system that would allow the future of our country (schools and our children) to descend into utter despair, while Mariposa County marches merrily on its way, never having to consider any cutbacks in their staff and, in fact, continuing to heap lavish salary and benefits upon themselves. If one looks at the big picture, one has to ask the question, "How can a country (county) supposedly rooted in character and ethics of gentlemen like Abraham Lincoln, allow such inequity and despair?" One group is sitting in luxury, another on the precipice of bankruptcy, both supposed neighbors yet both in the same county and funded by the same taxpayer. You see, many, many years ago, before everything got so complicated, the schools and the county government were one and the same and this inequity would not have occurred.
