A Friend of Lakeview

I want to thank everyone who has sent books to Lakeview Branch Library in Oakland. Lakeview is a one room library right on Lake Merritt in the heart of Oakland. Since December we have only had $200.00 to spend on books (that was about 8 books). Since the Pamie.com drive started we have received around around 30 adult and children's books. We are thrilled that citizens from our community and elsewhere have felt moved to help. One thing for sure these branch libraries were saved by concerned citizens. Libraries are the heart and soul of freedom. They are the access to ideas, knowledge and information. Without them many citizens lose access to history, art, philosophy, fantasy and the magic of divergent and internal thought.

Kindness of people like you should be acknowledged. We thank you.

raylene, I do aghree that the government shoudn't fund everything. However, I do think the government must fund things like libraries, because they are public goods that cannot not be adequately addressed by the private sector.

Furthermore, I'd seriously question that our taxes are going up; I know for a fact that mine have gone down, in aggregate, one way or another. hell, they just went down again last month!

I'll also argue that we don't need more money for defense (and as pamie and some other can attest, I can speak to this with some authority); what we need is to spend the money currently allocated more wisely. And it's not so much just waste (although there is that too), but an unwillingness to make choices about what should and should not be done.

Nope, didn't take the metaphor too far, John. And yes, we don't seem to learn from "crisis" situations like this; rather, once the "crisis" is over, our government seems to think everything's a-ok and goes back to the habits that brought these problems in the first place.

Raylene...yes, in a perfect society, that is how things would work. I wish more of us worried about our fellow human beings instead of our "me" mentality. Unfortunately, we also have a horrible economy out there right now and many people are saving their money instead of donating. I don't think many people look at their taxes as the revenue that they are. Believe me, as a unmarried single with no dependents, I'm not always a big fan of having about a third of my paycheck gone before it reaches my hands. But, I also have to remember that I don't want to live in a society that disregards the "less fortunate" to get a few more bucks every two weeks (or, even worse, what our society would become).
 
Girlfriday brings up an interesting point, too. What's really interesting is that most government funding is not based on the affluence of the community, but rather by population numbers.
