A [teabagger] group assembled in Portsmouth New Hampshire PUBLIC square. It's a bit ironic to see anti-tax protesters making use of a public square maintained by ... taxes.
The electricity for the rally's PA systems, the clean-up crews following the rallies, medical emergency technicians standing by ... just in case..., the roads leading to the event all paid for with taxes. We can go on listing the food and Drug Administration, Centers or Disease Control, Federal Aviation Administration... the US military, all of which, except maybe the last one, give us a sense of security often taken for granted.
I wasn't aware of the swine flu outbreak when I mentioned the Centers for Disease Control.
