They would prefer getting their health insurance instead of a
check? Does anyone else but me see something wrong with this picture?
The liberals and their comrades in the media have been so spoiled

The number for the City Council is 548-4844. The number for the
school district is 241-3111. Go ahead, Mr. Beall, you give 'em a
