So what you cant take it with you.We need to restore this garden to tourist attraction status as soon as posible with cost not being a concern.
I know you just posted this to stir up some more argument, because no one in their right mind would say something so ignorant with our economy the way it is (or in any economy situation).
As for not being able to "take it with you", my friend, many of us out here can not even afford to pay our utility and other "necessary to live" bills. Take WHAT with us? Any leftover money is often used for luxury things like a piece of meat to share for a week-end family meal, or if luck REALLY holds out, to get a maintenance medicine filled that we can't always get filled. You see, folks who work and pay their bills, in what use to be known as the middle-class, are sliding down the scale to poverty with the management of the fine folks we have running everything from county commissioner to the White House. And the middle-class supports this country. We are hurting and the government doesn't get it because they were raised with a silver spoon in their mouth and a silk rag to wipe their ass.
As for "restoring this garden to a tourist attraction"? You have got to be kidding! This was the hobby of a very nice old eccentric man. It appeals to less than 1% of the population.who have ever heard of it. It never was a garden, except for weeds, and as for an "attraction"? Please! It may be a curiosity and people take a look just to see what the very small fraction of people are making such a hoop-la about, but a "tourist attraction"? Not even.
If I have money left over, I am intelligent enough to find someone who needs a pair of shoes, a coat, or a window fan so that our greedy, thieving government can pick WHICH pair of shoes they will wear today,from their 20 or so pair, and donate their old $200 jacket to Goodwill (because it is last year's fashion) and then go sit in an air conditioned office (that tax money furnishes AND pays the power bill) THAT IS so cold they keep on one of their new jackets on all day!
You had to have written your post to just draw a rebuttal. If not, I apologize, because you must be mentally unstable and it would be rude to point out your stupidity. But you feel free to donate ALL your money, and I really believe, since you feel so strongly about it, if you have a home, sell it and donate that to the great Paradise Gardens,too.
Take your meds. You definitely need too.
