jigger: What a bunch of ass backward logic. Lots of people simply don't want to lived stacked and packed with tons of other people. They moved to the burbs to escape the stink, noise, and bustle. And the author didn't even mention race riots and white flight that led to a huge increase in suburban population.And how are the burbs siphoning money from the inner city? shiat that goes on in the burbs is mostly funded through property taxes and sales taxes from houses and shops in the burbs.
meat0918: I'm ok with subsidizing them, because the rural communities feed the farking cities.
Saiga410: optimus_grime: people in the suburbs are not farmers.they are parasites.if you don't want to live in the city, you shouldn't work there either.What actual parasitic actions do suburanites do? I really cannot think of a one outside of not giving their property tax money to the city.
dantheman195: Wait, the cities support the suburbs and rural areas? Maybe out in fly over country, but here in New Jersey the suburbs and rural areas support the cities. Look up how this state does school funding, money gets confiscated from hard working New Jersey families and it is than transferred to areas like Newark, Camden, Trenton, Asbury Park to pay for schools and infrastructure. Some of these districts spend upwards of $40K per students and still have 50% dropout rates and the ones who still somehow manage to graduate can't even read.So the next time you mouth breathers in fly-over country make blanket idiotic derpy derp statements on how the suburbs and the rural areas are supported by the cities, realize not everyone lives in your crappy state.
jigger: I do agree that no, and I mean no, road funding should come from anything other than gas taxes until some other dominant fuel source is found.
