Just shut your hole and PAY your taxes, In your case I agree let her house Burn!
FireFighters risk their lives every day, they are honarable plublic servants.
They earn their pay, and also have families to feed.
Your tax problems come from people who don't give back through hard work, but by sitting on their ass on welfare Etc.

If you could only perceive what it takes to enter a life threatening situation to help another you would be ashamed of yourself.
Your probably an illegal here living off the American taxpayer.
Firefighters deserve every dime they get paid, look to your so called social programs for lowering your taxes, letís cut off the gravy train, and then you will see your taxes go down.

You Should Be ashamed to of yourself let the house burn down. What type of person could you be? Remember what goes around comes around. Pay be honorable . A FireFighter saved my Life twenty years ago from a turned over car i was trapped in.As far as I am concerned these men are brave, Loyal, fearless and outstanding ...They couldn't pay them enought The RISK THER LIVES FOR OTHER PEOPLE ...So Show some RESPECT. Shutup and Pay like we all do.Life is to short and there is to much hate in this world, Just Be happy.

see if you have to live in amboy to understand. property taxes here are out the roof. Firefighters are ok to me, i have a problem with 35 cops walking up and down smith street at the pizzeria or hanging out on the corner or inside amboy all doing nothing. this is not cali or newark we dont need all of this.
where is our tax money going to, garbage gets picked up here around 1pm 2 pm----- the snow, noone clean the streets that are around hall ave, why do we need cop stationed at macdonalds. i bet our property taxs are as high as toms rivers or maybe edison or sayreville..... this is a good place to live dont get me wrong but the people that are in charge have no idea of what going on in this town.....

The Federal, State, County, and Local governments should start by cutting personnel by 50%. Then they should evaluate the remainder and keep only the half who earn their keep.

50% cut, not in your life time, think before you jump.
Your one of those nuts who jump before checking the water.

Yes its true. I work for the city. There are alot of police employed to work in out city that arent doing they're jobs efficiently and are getting a decent salary. We are trying to clean up the corrupt police and we are suceeding. It will take some time however. Bare with us.

Thnk you.
