Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

RE: Our refusal to help needy says who we are

The consequence is that many services for the less fortunate of our community will continue to be inadequate.

Of course, Timmy-boy doesn't bother to mention that those services are all things the government has no business doing.

Would it be an unreasonable burden on property owners to pay a 1-cent increase so that the disenfranchised might enjoy an incremental improvement in needed services?

Why yes, Tim, it would. And who gets to decide who is "disenfranchised," you? And what are the criteria for how much these services are "needed?" Is the need that you address your need to maintain your elitist position of power and continue to dispense largesse to your mascots at our expense?

This is an insulting and offensive piece and Tim is a blubbering moron. I just don't seem to recall the passages in the Bible that read, "Go work for the government so you can steal people's property at the point of a gun to give to someone else."

What's that I smell, Tim? Brimstone? Souls burning? Maybe you better get used to that smell, Tim.

Steve, if someone is literally pointing a gun at you to collect your taxes, i suggest that you pay them a little earlier next time. Perhaps you should ask your employer about having them deducted directly from your paycheck. That might keep the gun-toting tax collectors off your porch.

Oh yeah, that's right....you are merely full of it.

That line, however, is more than a little tired -- you should come up with some different hyporbolic BS line to complain about the taxes you pay (which among MANY,MANY other things) enables you to drive around in your Lexus on paved roads.
