One has to ask oneself "what would CB leaders do if they didn't have Freeman Park?" Would they have made that stupid land purchase a few years ago? Would they now be talking about building a swimming pool in a town that already has great beaches? Would they have blah, blah, blah ..... I'm sure you get the picture.
The point is they would have had to make more responsible decisions. They didn't do that though because ... they had Freeman Park money they could spend instead. They've turned into Freeman Park addicts.
Like any other type of addict, they've become used to thinking that "if some is good, more is better". Over the past few years, entrance fees to the park have been increased several times. Now, no matter how you label it, they wan't to raise prices yet again.
Any first year marketing student can tell you about the principle of the "point of diminishing returns". Raise the price of your product and increase your financial yeild. Keep doing that, and all of a sudden one day, no one will wan't to continue to purchase the product. When that happens the whole campaign comes crashing down like a house of cards.
It's time some CB leaders commit themselves into Freeman Park rehab before that occurs. It's time CB leaders start coming up with other ways to fix some of their problems. That's called responsible government.
Keep squeezing harder and harder on Freeman Park to extract more and more revenue and only one thing can inevitably happen. They'll squeeze so hard that they'll wind up killing the goose that's laying the golden eggs.
