Too funny, it's like a broken record with that guy.

My cars! My taxes! My money! My cars!

What a joker.

i agree. like a broken record.

interestingly, he never makes the connection between the vast waste of taxpayer's money that goes into maintaining urban sprawl and car culture.

nor does he whine about the city $$$ that Bourkvale Community Club receives every year for its "Halloween Hoe-Down", its "Burn the Tractor" events, and other private socials.

he's the VP of the board for Bourkvale C.C.

word verif: whies
