What are some of the best uses of tax payer funds you have come across?
I'd have to say Public Libraries have to be up there. My kids want to go multiple times a week to our local library. They just love hanging out there and bringing books home.

Basic infrastructure
Parks (National, State, Local)
Military (but vast overspending)

Everything govt touches costs 10x what it should

Can't argue with that. As a family we spend a lot of time in both places.

the pain in the arse it is to enjoy our national parks with the daily passes selling out in minutes and the price they are charging these days is getting a bit ridiculous



People forget that they are OUR national parks.

Pallets of cash to the Taliban or that time in Syria where CIA-backed militias fought militias armed by the Pentagon.

Good times

One of my cousins was a compulsive gambler and joined the army to pay off some bad people with his signing bonus. They put him in the finance corps and sent him around with satchels full of cash paying off warlords. Knowing him a good bit of that cash never made it to it's intended recipient

Air traffic control. Keeping a lot of airplanes from banging into each other is pretty huge.

Our military kicks arse by overwhelming force and technology. Outside of SF troops, most of our military incompetent, wasteful and very inefficient.

Modern sewerage systems.

Flood control.

Interstate system (roads in general)

National defense

Border security and immigration enforcement (when those functions were actually being performed). Ellis Island was a model of good immigration policy enforcement that allowed for successful and positive immigration.

Weights and Measures. I have no doubt companies would have their thumb on the scales if it weren’t for their inspections. That includes gas pumps, produce, materials, commodities, etc.
