I always thought the purpose of government was to do the things it is impossible for the public to do on their own.
If that is the case why the f*ck are the Buckeye elected rulers giving OUR money to THEIR favorite charities???
Us serfs are perfectly capable of giving OUR money to OUR favorite charities and we don't need any government nannies to take our money at gun point and donate OUR money to THEIR favorite charities.
Also that donation of $12,000 to All Faith Community Services sure sounds like it's a violation of both the US Constitution and Arizona Constitution which both forbid mixing government and religion.
