1. Me too. Of course round my area is getting hit hard and a local NJ lawmaker said rump is "ripping

you off" and the anchor said his words not mine. Another log for the shit fire of a 'legacy'.

2. NJ is one of the "fuck you" states

Blue states that allowed property taxes to get deducted suddenly can't anymore in order to subsidize the tax scam for red state moochers.

3. I am in a very red state that just happens to have high property taxes.

Lots of states like this because they give all the tax cuts to the businesses, so property owners get to make up the shortfall.

6. Won't say.

There's enough about me on here over the years that someone could put it together and due to my job, I don't want that.

7. Tax Increment Financing giveaways for property developers,...

,... for the moneyed folks it is property taxes and other state taxes deferred or forgiven to entice you to do your development ,.. here not some other town up or down the road. Often with sweetheart deals exchanged under the table and off the radar screen. You wash my back,... , I wash yours - deals.

While the average homeowner pays through the nose to pick up the slack caused by the giveaway to the rich land developers. Yet they use the biggest bulk of municipal services.

Another case of socialism - is okay when it comes to spreading out the costs incurred,.. but when it comes to profits - capitalism is the only way to go,.. it is the economic principal that is truly American,... only the owners are entitled to a reasonable and often times obscene rates of profit.

Just ask the pharmaceutical industries. The government finances the bulk of new drugs research and development laboratory work.

When a new drug is found it becomes a privatized endeavor. Capitalism now rules the day privatized profits are only shared with the select few no matter how astoundingly obscene those profits maybe.

Costs socialized,.. profits privatized,.. that is the mantra of the day that worships and celebrates free market capitalism.

Because if it isn't privatized into the greasy hands of Mafioso Oligarchic Thugs then it ain't laissez-faire capitalism. Then pinko commies must be running the show - and Ayn Rand would be highly perturbed and beside herself in fits of rage and foaming at the mouth anger.

Gluttony, greed, and plundering are the signs of a good, hearty, and financially thriving America.

9. Or in the Midwest, they sell the tax break for farmers

But it's not going to the guy with 200 head of sow trying to eek out a living. It's big corporate farms that tear out every windbreak so they can get another bushel of corn out of the ground. Totally kills the local pheasant and quail population.

Then in the winter, they lease the ground to big outfitters who come in with fancy corporate clients, lay out 1000 decoys, and then leave.

You can't even hunt a damned duck anymore.

8. They have screwed up the transfer payment compact between the states.

This tax scam is where states start to fight between each other. The days of the American republic are now numbered.

11. The tax code is the how revenue is equalized among the states.

Just watch and you will see what Iím talking about when things get really heated in NY and CA over limiting of SALT deductions. This is what separatist movements are made of...
