I can remember an incident that occurred not too long ago (maybe 10 years). We went to Zinnie's east for brunch. We were informed we could not get a mimosa or bloody mary til noon. Apparently someone changed that law, because you can now go to a restaurant before noon on Sunday and get a drink. Amazing how some of the restrictive laws stay on the books well after they serve no purpose.
I think he should ask for a deduction in his rent. After all, pay for view was probably not part of the original lease agreement.
By your post I can rest assured you would not use your OWN money to save my life. You'd let me rot. By the way, I consider tax dollars to be my OWN money that I give the government to spend on things to make my life better as well as other people.
Why are people like you so hate filled that you'd rather see people die than try to help people in need? I know the answer: selfish, greedy and most often not, Christian.
If the Good Samaritan had been a Republican, Jesus would have had one less parable to tell.
I'd venture the opposite viewpoint. If you did tax the wealthy at the higher rate, thus making their take home/disposable income less, they might well decide the best way to make up the difference would be to expand their business to make more income. In other words, taxing will have the opposite effect and actually create more jobs as the wealthy want to maintain a certain income level.
I only have one gripe about this situation. I would like to be able to buy a bottle of wine on Sunday. Yesterday, the storm front was moving in and we agreed to go buy food and stay home for the evening. I would have liked to have bought some wine. If the liquor stores do not want to give up their wine sales, find a way to sell me a bottle of wine on Sunday like most civilized states. Change laws and codes if needed if those wine sales are so precious to you. Partner with the grocery stores-- a grocery store in Oregon has a state run liquor store inside the grocery. Find another option, but until you, the liquor stores do, I will fully support the sale of wine in the grocery stores. That seems to be the only argument and option you understand.
