Attracting a new business to a town with a temporary property tax concession as an incentive creates local employment with attendant increased revenue. The vacant land or buildings were probably creating very little property tax revenue anyway. Down the road they will generate far more.
Let's say a company like Cabela's wants to build a megastore along the interstate in one of two or three rural townships. Why not offer an incentive to attract the development?
Idiots like Dave who want to punish business are the reason we have continued high unemployment.
Keep in mind that we are talking about real businesses, not the kind of scams like Solyndra funded by Obama.
How about the stores that sold outdoor equipment & supplies that have been paying taxes for years. Now their tax dollars go to bringing in competition that will run them out of business.

How about companies in that area for decades growing adding jobs & supporting the community for decades. What do they get?

That's because you idolize negro junk, and cant get enough of it. Hockey is a sport for VERY tough men who get stitched back up in between shifts, and then head back out onto the ice. Basketball players sit out six weeks over a minor scratch. Besides, the reason you dont like hockey is because its at too fast a pace for your abnormally wide, boozed-out synapse to accurately follow...

Does anyone remember Barack Obama's great promise of the campaign of 2012? He did not make a promise to America nor to Americans. He did not make a promise to fellow politicians. Unlike so many of his promises, he is keeping this one. His promise was to Vladimir Putin of Russia.
What is Obama doing to keep his promise to Putin? Everyone remembers the hot mike incident in 2012 when Barack Obama pleaded with Russian President Dmitri Medvedyev to give him time until the election. After the election, he promised Vladimir Putin, through Medvedyev, he would be more "flexible." Now we have seen this flexibility.
Barack Obama is going to spend almost $700 million dollars of taxpayer money to buy Russian helicopters for the Afghan Air Force. But wait. Just like those TV commercials, this gets better. When Congress passed the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, it had an interesting provision. Congress included, as a part of that law a prohibition on the United States buying helicopters from Rosoboronexport, the Russian manufacturer of the Mi-17 helicopter.
Unfortunately as always happens, when such laws are passed, Congress always gives the Regime an escape hatch. The law stated that Obama could buy from Rosoboronexport if the Secretary of Defense certified it was in the interest of National Security. And of course, the Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, a man committed to destroying the US military immediately signed off on that certification. Where do we even start with this one?
Congress is outraged over this with Senators and Representatives from both parties writing letters about this. Of course, this is Congress' fault for allowing a law to be written with such an escape hatch. More importantly, Americans need to be asking just what the hell the Obama Regime is doing.
Why are we spending $700 million dollars with a Russian arms manufacturer? Why are we even giving the Afghans these helicopters?
If we are going to give them helicopters, which we really shouldn't, then why not give them American made helicopters and put Americans to work? Even if we are going to give the Afghans Russian helicopters, the ones we are giving them are an old Cold War design. There are hundreds of used MI-17 helicopters floating around the world. Why are we paying to give the Afghans brand new helicopters?
In the era of the Sequester, isn't there something better we can do with $700 million? American Medicare cancer patients are being turned away from hospitals and are being denied life saving treatment because of budget cuts. The American military is being gutted to the point of ineffectiveness because of budget cuts. Or consider this. The United States Air Force is grounding 17 squadrons because of $591 million dollars in budget cuts. Our Air Force is not able to do its mission because it lacks the money to fly but we have the money to give Afghanistan $700 million dollars in Russian helicopters.
And this is where Barack Obama thinks we should spend our money? Most people reading this story will not have heard about it. Why?
Because the Obama Propaganda Media is moving in lock step to make sure there is no bad news that might damage Obama's presidency.
This is a story that should damage him and outrage every American.
Ask your Senator or Congressman why this outrage is being allowed and take a moment to share this story with your friends.
The only way we will ever stop Obama is if the American people know what he is doing.
Even retires of FDNY know about this:

According to voter registration records, Ariel Castro, the Cleveland kidnapper, is a registered Democrat. He was also the alleged leader among the three Castro brothers, who were arrested this week, and the owner of the house at 2207 Seymour Ave., where the three abducted local women had been kept in captivity for over a decade.

The talk of "massive gun battles" was grossly exaggerated, mostly cop fire without effect. The Muslim Brotherhood had only one handgun and ambushed the cop that they killed. The first Muslim was killed by his brother by running over his head while escaping. The second Muslim was unarmed when flushed from the boat by a massive police assault. Police were lucky that these guys were not good for much except planting IEDs.
The first Muslim was killed by his brother by running over his head while escaping.

Rather good points to reiterate.

<quoted text> I use to love watching the NBA. It was a great sport. There is something graceful about a well run offense. Now it is just a bunch of over grown children who don't follow the rules. Hell why do they even have referees except to stop the fights.
Oh by the way 'Rubbin' is racin'' Always has been. Always will be. There is a difference but doubt you'll understand.
NBA problems started when they eliminated rules against traveling and palming the ball.

Those sports still follow the rules or the teams are penalized. The NBA is nothing more than a back yard pick me up game where the rules change constantly. It has ruined a great sport.

Of course Assad, his top generals and top government appointees are members of the Alawite sect of the Shiite division of Islam.

Agree about that overkill firepower by the police, sounded like the grand finale at Fourth of July. What was the point? The brothers may have gone on to plant more bombs elsewhere, the witness said they talked about going to Times Square. The other brother may have had a gun and ditched it.
Why would he ditch a gun if he had one? Makes no sense.
