Well don't that just frost you?Best part is next year they will want more taxes for the"improvements" they made.
We got the same sort here,except here when they pave a road they figure it's the last thing they will ever have to do to it.
My road used to be dirt,cost $205/year for property taxes.Our road wyes off another and right in the wye is a culvert.That culvert was colpasing when they paved the road.The following year the taxes went up to $485/year and because the culvert was colapsed the new paved road is always under a foot of water for three days after it rains.This past year taxes went up again to over $750,except now all that fabulous pavement is busting up and falling apart.
Our county is run by idiots,simple as that.Most of them did nothing by smoke weed all through school and the county is the only place they can get a job.What a bunch of Galactic level morons
Oh and the school board,SOB'S all,every f---ing year the taxes go up and the students get worse.Why do people have to pay for public schools when they have to pay extra to send the're kids to private school if they want an education?
Besides all that,while we're on the subject of goverment stupidity(large subject I'll admit)when you folks out there hear about FEMA's debacle in dealing with this storm,be aware that's nothing compared to the local goverment's stupidity in the matter.
After the storm the first responders to people's imeadiate life and death needs were private charities,particularly church groups.They feed,clothed and provided water to all who were in need,no hassles and in a very efficient manner.What did the state and local authorities do?Gave them a rash because some of them didn't file the proper forms before setting up relief stations in the state
I guess the problem is,noone with any sense want the job,so idiots flourish.
The latest is a bait and switch tax bill infront of the governor.The Republican governor vetoed a Democrat bill that would do away with the sales tax on food and add a $1/pack tax on ciggarttes.He has caught on and so have I.The plan is simple,wave a carrot infront of people(eliminating the sales tax)tie it to a feel good soak the evil tax(cigarrete tax) when the state coffers run low in a year or two,replace the sales tax and keep the ciggarette tax to boot.Has been done before.Luckily I don't think the veto will be over ridden.
Rant mode off:
I just need one more tool,just one!
