    • Highway Landscaping: Best Intentions, Dandelion - Daisy

      We used the Dandelion and Daisy story to demonstrate the inherent liabilities of government spending coupled with best intentions. Link here: http://tinyurl.com/p57ejdf We do not mean to say that government should make no public interest expenditures, only that human nature can naturally lead to wasteful spending when one's own money is not at risk. We hope that readers, after absorbing this example, see the value in questioning candidates for public office as they seek election or reelection. We solemnly add that we know of cases where elected officials and bureaucrats charged with carrying out lawful requirements do act in the public interest, are thoughtful and are conscientious. But we think that even in this case, the incumbents have to work hard and summon great self discipline to do the best that they can do when their own money is not at risk. For those who do overcome the human temptations and strive to serve well, we would offer the highest civilian equivalent of the Armed Forces Legion of Merit. Going a step further, we believe that public employees should never receive payments beyond salaries and rich benefits for work requiring them to be motivated by integrity, not windfall bonuses that can be all too soon abused and taken for granted. -dh

          @misstrade and @juligalli cringe at the thought of how and when US Congress and Obama will need to pump up taxes to pay for all the spending. Citizens in Iceland voted no, but will the govt really listen?
