Margaret Thatcher: No Such Thing as Public Money by The Elephant's Child

Here’s Margaret Thatcher to reiterate the simple fact that there is no such thing as public money, or as I keep saying: The government has no money of its own. Every time someone wants the government to do something for them, that amount comes proportionately out of your pocket.

We’ve just had a series of devastating hurricanes, with lots of help from FEMA to set things right. Part of the cost usually comes from the states, but the states don’t have any money of their own either. Puerto Rico is a special problem because of years of Democrat mismanagement which has left the island bankrupt. But they need help and FEMA is there as is the U.S. Army, getting help to areas that can no longer be reached by road. They need simple food and water, and it’s hard to get it to them, and the power is out and may continue to be out for some time. Now it seems that some of the politicians  representing those areas have been funneling the supplies to their friends to distribute to their friends …and so it goes.

We’ve  had Harvey in Texas, Irma, José, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, and now Ophelia which is circling up the Atlantic and may hit Ireland directly. Ireland is not accustomed to tropical hurricanes.
