Unmet Needs Unmet

From Government Bytes:

Virginia State Senator Ken Cuccinelli reports that the Commonwealth's "Tax Me More Fund" doesn't seem to be doing very well. So far, it's only raised $9,048.

And only $19 of those dollars have come in this year -- the year when the legislature went weeks and weeks past its normal COB because of the scrum over tax hikes.

Seems like people either don't know about the program, which is more than likely, or, if they do, simply do not care to contribute more than the state already requires. There's a message in this somewhere. (HT: Tim Wise).

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
