“The waste of tax dollars is the schools trying to educate your low iq offspring. I have lived here for half a century and there is zero chance of getting a sufficient number of volunteers. The ambulance can’t get enough to staff it during the day and that’s only requiring 2 people. Response time is critical.

The cost is minuscule compare to the money pissed away on sports fields, parking garages and th bloated school budget.”
