1) Liberals are so smart, just ask one and they'll know everything about everything. Their belief in their intelligence totally squashes any personal humility
2) They are so worldly. And yet they have no sense of introspection at any level.
3) They're never to blame for their actions and are always looking for someone to bail them out for their shitty decisions.
So you really have to laugh your ass off when you get to see all of these in play in just two paragraphs of a news article.................
“I’m at the breaking point,” said Gretchen Gardner, an Austin artist who bought a 1930s bungalow in the Bouldin neighborhood just south of downtown in 1991 and has watched her property tax bill soar to $8,500 this year.
“It’s not because I don’t like paying taxes,” said Gardner, who attended both meetings. “I have voted for every park, every library, all the school improvements, for light rail, for anything that will make this city better. But now I can’t afford to live here anymore. I’ll protest my appraisal notice, but that’s not enough. Someone needs to step in and address the big picture.”
Here's the big picture Gretchen. Quit fucking voting for every tax increase.
Besides Gretchen's incredible stupidity, there was something in the article that our public needs an education on................
The share of property taxes from homeowners to support public schools grew from 45 percent to 54 percent over a 12-year period, while commercial and industrial owners’ share has declined to less than 20 percent. (Other sectors, from oil and gas to personal property, make up the rest.)
Let me ring the clue phone to you dumbasses. Businesses owners aren't clueless. They don't pay for more government than they need. So every time you pass a tax increase, income, property, or increased regulation, you simply provide fuel for business owners to get the hell out of Dodge.
When those businesses leave, who do you think has to pick up the slack? Gretchen?
