Because their success will help keep your social security payments coming, and in the case of Eldest with his interest in internet security, possibly your energy safe from internet attack.
I'm not saying that renewable energy is a bad thing. Neither is the ability to pay one's bills. It's time that government starts to either earn more money or spend less, and develop a budget they can live within.
It constantly amazes me how one cut after another in spending is simply called too little to make a difference, but a few tens of million here, a few more there, and pretty soon, as someone I don't recall once said, it adds up to real money.
paying more than her share of Youngest's school costs in property taxes, and 100% of Eldest's college costs
