How Did We Get Here?

A friend of mine is having problems with her air conditioner, and it looks like she’s going to need to replace the indoor unit part of the unit. She was going over the estimate with me, and three line items stood out. It seems that the county requires two permits and an inspection fee to replace a part of the original home that’s been there long enough to have failed. 

So, not only did the county require multiple bribes (permits) and even more bribes (inspections) during the construction phase of the house, but when a repair is needed on a component that was already the subject of a construction-era bribe, more bribes are required. 

And that’s not all. Only a person or company who has paid the necessary bribes to receive both a contractor’s license and a “normal” business license can perform said work. 

Still think we live in a free country?

Then you’re a dumbass!

    5 years ago the a/c service guy put a “stop leak” additive in my system, because the “A” coil was leaking. This would have been the 2nd replacement.
    It has not leaked in over 5 years.

    There are still some places in this country that have none of that shit-yet. So am I a dumbass for living where it’s winter half the year, or smart for living in a free state?
