Tax the hell out of homeowners !! Then the only people who will have money are the welfare recipients . We all know how they create jobs…increased size of Police forces, public housing development, drug rehab, Dollar Generals , ambulance services, store security, pediatricians , home security system installers , ammunition sellers , and I could go on and on.

Say goodbye to your pension if you are an at work county employee. It blows my mind that these so called leaders aren’t in jail for operating at a deficit on purpose. Spend, spend, spend and then attack the very people that actually do some work by eliminating a negotiated benefit. The workers will most likely lose 50% or more af their accrued benefit when the PBGC takes over the underfunded plan, with a $0 increase in their wages. It amounts to little more than legalised theft and a legal contract violation. I love government. They turn anything they touch into one giant fiasco. Put a few of these criminals in prison and watch things straighten out virtually overnight.

Time to make across the board pay cuts and personnel reductions! All supervisors and elected officials should take a minimum pay cut of 50% and each department should chop personnel to the minimum! It appears that the money from the sale of Friendship Ridge has been squandered and eaten up by the incompetent handling and misuse of proceeds by those involved with the sale! Too many people benefitting from abusing the system of checks and balances at taxpayers expense! Too many foxes in the henhouse!
