Poor silly people. Do you honestly believe that if something benefits you, that it benefits the community as a whole? You need to wake up. I have never said I oppose replacing the pool. I understand it is needed for many activities in this community and that the current facilities would be too costly to repair correctly.

What I am saying is that you Socialist (see communism) fools need to realize that not everyone will benefit. A large number will benefit, but a large number will also be paying for a service they will never use or don't want to use. I am also greatly opposed to spending money that doesn't exist (see credit). All that does is destroy our economy. Just look at the world economy today. The current money problems are all a result of living on credit. Spending money you don't have for things you don't need. But you probably don't understand this concept, so I will stop here.
