I hate our state.
I wouldn’t live here if I wasn’t supposed to, and really enjoyed most things.
But man, we are MESSED UP.
I just have a few questions:
1. Why does a correctional officer at the prison get SO much more than teachers. Just seems like if you catch ’em young…
2. Why can’t medical patients pay a copay? Honestly, I think it would almost fund medical, and at least they’d realize an opportunity cost for coming to the hospital for every little thing.
3. Why do we pay our state legislature? I think they shouldn’t get paid til’ we get a budget, I mean really — what else is in their job description? They’re failing, let’s all fire them.
Anyway, it’s a delightful state otherwise. There really are so many perks to living here I can’t list them all here (don’t get me wrong, we have our downfalls)… but sometimes I think it’d be wise to split us in two or 3. We’re bigger than many countries. We could totally beat them up.
In other news P is 5 weeks today. I am not getting my hopes up that C slept through the night at 6 weeks… and S at 7….
