Good-bye power-sprays!

Power-sprays or "applying insecticide on one's roof using high-pressure delivery system" is going into history books. In mine, it goes into the "scams" chapter because, … Read more ›

  1. @davidhj And by the way…your fury with me daring to comment is clear sign of what comments you like. You are not interested in feedback, you are interested in what Soviet Politboro was …applause and agreement only! Boo to Soviet’s Pravda, to taxes, to sheep’ mentality. This is not north Korea…yet: we say what we have to say if you like it or not and if we are wrong, right us not shame us into compliance! NO TO TAXES! NYET TO TAXES! YES TO DISCUSSION!

  2. @davidhj I know “nothing” about it? What is it to know? Taxes, except for defence, are bad, ok? People not knowing anything about tollways told you guys not to fall for it…and insetad of tollways going away, now you have tollway increases. i agree with you, people are stupid sheep and they deserve to be taxed without mercy. My ignorance? My ingnorance you say? You are funny, you and those who fall for it…

  3. @georgelemieux your ignorance is sadly not surprising. In fact, it’s actually offensive that you would even take the time to comment on a situation that you know little (nothing) about. This isn’t about big government bureaucratic inefficiency. This is about a two-school district that has already made $1.8M in cuts over the last few years and has had to withstand millions of dollars in successful property tax appeals by Allstate since 2005 that date all the way back to 1992. Your sarcasm and attempts at humor are simply indicative of someone jaded by the current political landscape. This referendum is asking for less than an average of a dollar per day over the course of a year for a homeowner with a house valued at $400K. Consolidation of our small district is NOT an option.

  4. @georgelemieux your ignorance relating to our community is sadly not shocking. On a macro level I don’t necessarily disagree with you. I am frustrated by general government inefficiency as well. But this district is feeling a different kind of hurt. This isn’t about “trimming the fat.” 92% of our budget (a HUGE number) comes from local property tax. Over the past few years, $1.8M in cuts have been made to the budget of this two school district. This is district where – since 2005 – MILLIONS of dollars out of our budget have been reapportioned to big corporations like Allstate that have appealed their taxes successfully all the way back to 1992! Consolidation is not an option either.
    This referendum is asking the homeowner of a $400K house for less than $1.00/day over the course of a year. This is a NO BRAINER. It’s offensive that you would actually take the time to share such a close minded, uninformed viewpoint of the situation in our district that you clearly know nothing about. If you’re really interested in learning about what is going on here go to http://www.savedistrict31.com to educate yourself.

  5. Go for it people…tax yourselves out of your own homes. you didn’t learn anything from Chicago, did you? All this “housing buble”…ever wonder why no expert mentions “property taxes being too high?” I tell you why they don’t mention it…because they are paid to shut up! When you will no longer be able pay your property bill…you’ll understand the insanity of the politicians. Vote for your own home…vote no on any property tax increase and let them fire each other to balance the budget. Tollway for schools, lottery for schools, fines for schools, cigarettes’ taxes for school and still not enough…It will never be enough so vote “no” on taxes anyway! (…now no politician will use Red Raspberries Pest :))…they’ll go to the competition :))
