Jon Coupal does a great

Jon Coupal does a great service to taxpayers by watching and then summarizing what the ruling elite are up to. I salute him and thank him for this. It is important to understand that people who depend on tax dollars to buy their groceries, i.e. politicians, are subject to considerable moral hazard. Many of them lack the moral fiber to resist the tendency to be careless, reckless or even outright dishonest when it comes to carrying out their prescribed duties and looking after the interests of those who hire and pay them. Much to their liking, most taxpayers are too busy working, looking for work or simply distracted by other interests to pay attention to what the hired help are doing. The result is the type of thing that Mr. Coupal is informing us of. We need to pay more attention to the mis-use and abuse of our tax dollars which often take deceiptful forms such as mysterious, hidden "fees."
