Slavery not salvation

How sad and ironic to read Friday's headline story, "$8M flow could be savior" (The Signal, May 8).

The federal government takes more than $8,000 per year on average from each man, woman and child in America. For a city the size of Santa Clarita, that is $1.5 billion dollars. With a B.

Now, when they give back half of one percent (with strings attached, to be used only as the elite in Washington, D.C., allow, i.e. low-income, special ed, etc.), we rejoice at the largesse as some sort of salvation.


Who is better to know the needs of Santa Clarita - those who live here or those who reside 3,000 miles away? Who should decide what to do with our own dollars - the residents of Santa Clarita who earned them or the elites in our federal government?

Wake up, Santa Clarita - it is slavery, not salvation, that you're experiencing, and when your owners dribble back half of one percent of your own hard work, and then have the nerve to tell you how you can spend it, you should be roaring with anger, not purring with thanks.
