I have NEVER been to a government run facility where I was communicated
with in a freindly manner, or treated in any way like I was a human
being. Unfortunately, I cannot take my government business elsewhere, as
they currently enforce their monopoly quite strictly (i.e. Waco, Ruby
RIdge, Justus Township), so they are not motivated to act any
differently. I can however go into any type of business I choose for the
products or services I need, and if I don't like even the smallest bit
of my experience there, I can walk out any time I want to. I also grew
up in a small town, of less than 10,000 people. However I grew up when
people in this town still felt they had to be civil to each other, this
is slowly not becoming the case, as people from states and cities where
they have let governments have overrun their lives are moving here, and
are bringing the same cancer with them. I guess the 90's haven't gotten
to New Zealand yet.
