Other people's money

I see that Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett has proposed, among other cuts, to cut out the discretionary funds for himself and county commissioners. It looks like most commissioners do not want their funds cut.

Have these commissioners considered that they are using OPM (other people's money) to spend as they please? Maybe for a good cause, but those OP are deprived of the opportunity to spend that money as they see fit.

Would those commissioners come to your house and collect that OPM with the barrel of a gun, so that they could spend it as they please? Not directly  - - they would just send the sheriff.

Yeah, they would send the sheriffs deputy out for something like this. This is for those who say "from my dead cold fingers." Are you ready to kill your neighbor? Mine is a country sheriff's deputy. Nice guy, three kids, I've watched them grow up. I don't think so. That being said, it's about time the politicians learned that there is a limit to the amount of money they can grab from the taxpayers.BTW, it's starting to get a little more complicated to post here than should be necessary. More infringement of our rights to privacy?
