Phoenix's Successful Security

The lamestream media told you:

America's fifth largest city, Phoenix, using massive funding provided by the federal government, has successfully beefed up security, lowered it risks and exposure to attacks, and generally succeeded in goals of Homeland Security following the Sep. 11 attacks.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Phoenix officials are outraged that, because they have done well and implemented the very policies the money was provided for, they won't continue to keep getting the money, now that the work is done. Their funding from the 2006 Urban Area Security Initiative may be cut off in the 2007 funding cycle.

What this means to the taxpayer is that, no matter how well spent their money is, no end to the expenditures will ever be recognized by government officials addicted to a non-stop "flow" of funding. No solution to the money addiction is known.
