On tonight's 10 O'clock news, a story just came on about budget cuts forcing cutbacks of life guards at state parks. I mean, you can't really expect a state rife with waste and political cronyism to cut a useless agency, or an important position like, say the 2nd Assistant to The Deputy Commissioner of Policy Analysis and Implementation for Economic Development in Asia.....can you?
No. You must hurt the "little people" who may voice their displeasure at out of control spending. Because we don't understand, it's not a spending problem, it's a revenue problem! Oh, we're just so stupid!
UPDATE 6-27-17 0645: Just now on the PSRK morning news out of Hartford, this report; a four year old child drowned in Burr Pond State Park in Torrington yesterday afternoon. He was swimming in the roped off area with lifeguards present. Lifeguards spotted him in trouble and jumped in to rescue him. He was brought to shore and efforts were made to resuscitate, but the child did not survive.
Do they think on a hot humid day people will not enter swimming areas with NO lifeguards. Again, that will be considered by me more stats for the ever increasing PSRK government sponsored death toll.
