I sleep very well at night. Because i do what the state tells me that i have to do. If your boss told you to do something and you told him/her no that you did not want to you that you would not have a job. I pay my Taxes just like you and i dont think if you had to work in a assessors offices then you would be able to see both sides of the fence but you dont want to see the other side. You All just want to b---- and grip but cant get out on election day to vote
If my boss told me to jump off a building I would not do it because I did not believe in it. But do us all a favor and jump.

Excuse me...but go into your local assessor's office or better yet, call 3 different assessors office that are close to you. Ask them if Trending is or was applied on Commercial property. They will say no!
They will say NO because they didn't do their jobs. I KNOW that they didn't do it - the fact is that it was supposed to apply to all property. You made my point you idiot.

Are you that stupied. Do you even understand that you just threaten me. We are not talking about if your boss asked you to jump from a building. We are talking about doing your job that you are hired to do. I was hired to do a job that just happens to deal with property assessments. I dont set the tax rates. I just assess property. Maybe you all should get mad at the schools in you area because they are the ones that you are paying most of your taxes to. All of you want to point the finger at the government for what is happen to your taxes but if you really take a long look you will see that 3 fingers are pointing back to you. If you had went a voted in november then things may have been different now.

un wad your panties. what I am saying is, how can you do a job you dont beleive in? I am not an abortion doctor because I don't believe in killing babies. You must believe in your job to perform. You doing your job is promoting hihg taxes. I do not believe in property taxes therefore I could not asses property.

I do my job to keep a roof over my children and my head. We all have jobs we dont believe in but we do them to pay the bills. I do a honest job. You can not compare abortions to assessing. I dont want to arge with you because it is not going to get either one of us anywhere.

Do a job you believe in not one you are forced to do. You said,"We all have jobs we dont believe in." That is not true. If you don't believe in it don't do it. I hope you teach your kids differently. You have lost the point of life. I do understand the need to provide a roof for your family but if you can change jobs if you don't believe in what you are doing.

I wish I had a house deck out like some of these schools are. I would enjoy a indoor heated swimming pool for my friends to come over. But of course I could not afford the taxes on a place like that.

Aside from that, the Democrats have convinced most of their people that the government was formed for the sole purpose of giving them something. They have failed to come to the realization that the government has no money other than the money it confiscate from taxpayers..We have already passed the point where, in many cases, the people vote for people they think will give themselves the biggest take from the government. Thus, the explanation for anyone voting for U. S. Congresswoman, Julia Carson, State Senator, Patrick Bauer, or, Sweet Pea Gray on the City-County Council in Marion County.
These are prime examples of people whose primary backers are slackers, people who, for the most part, are non-taxpayers and people who contribute very little financially to the government. But they are first in line with both hands out for any and all government programs that might give them another excuse for being non-productive.
Let's start by not allowing anyone on welfare to vote or run for any public office.
Conservative states generally have a much higher rate of poverty,welfare and divorce as compared to liberal states.
Somebody needs to wash your mouth out with soap for saying that Democrats are for people laying on their asses, The Idea is to give them opportunity rather than charity.

I have, It's not as bad as some would make it out to be. I'd rather pay more taxes and have a job than pay nothing and be unemployed.
Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. proved that the connservative strategy of economics only works on paper, this is the real world.
