2. I will say it again. Those guy make more in our tax dollars than they pay in taxes.

Why does no one raise hell about that? Think about it. Our government spends our tax dollars but where does it go? Many of the top 1% are way in the black tax dollar wise, they have to be! Taxed to death my ass! Only if you're at minimum wage to say $25 dollar per hour worker or so.

3. There is a whole lifestyle in New York that relies on a constant state of denial

and lack of accountability.

Really pissed me off when someone made a comment about how their son managed to land a job after college, making 40 thousand dollars a year, and the Long Islander replied, "That's all?"

They live under an entirely different reality base, which we have to help maintain with our lost investment dollars.
