Dont be a free-loader

June 30, 2014 - Blaine Hyska
I’m betting you spend a bundle on entertainment.

Take your cable TV, for example. At $110 or so a month, you’re paying a pretty penny for those games and shows. And you have to wait through commercials on top of it. Your time has to be worth something, too.

How about that Wifi? That’s not free either. Sure you call it research, but try adding up how many hours you spend on your mobile device checking this and downloading that. It’s more than you think.

Then you’ve got DVD rentals, movies, and dinner & drinks. It all adds up. You must be at $250 to $300 a month by now. Admit it, you spend as much as you would on a good used car payment each month as you do entertainment.

So what’s the holdup on your donation for the Iron Mountain fireworks? This is America’s birthday. You expect to be entertained for a hour to an hour and a half for nothing?

Come on, man. If you plan to take the family to the fireworks this year, don’t be a free-loader.

Make a check out to the Sons of the American Legion 2014 Fireworks Fund, and mail it to: SAL 2014 Fireworks Fund, P.O. Box 1046, Iron Mountain, MI 49801.

And don’t be shy with the zeros.
