VOTE NO! VOTE NO! VOTE NO ON THESE MILLAGES! SCREW THE CITIES, ESPECIALLY ROSEVILLE! THEY COULD REAP HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY MONTH IF THEY WOULD PULL OVER THE IDIOT JERK OFFS WHO BOOM AND THUMP THEIR CAR STEREOS ALL DAY AND NIGHT, EVERY DAY AND NIGHT! CLOSE THE DAMN SENIOR CENTER, CLOSE THE PARKS, CLOSE THE LIBRARY. FIND MONEY FROM TAKING CUTS IN YOUR OWN PAY AND BENEFITS! WHAT IS THE CITY OF ROSEVILLES CITY MANAGER COLLECTING FROM US EVERY YEAR IN HIS PENSION AND SALARY? I HEARD IT IS SOMETHING LIKE $170,000 A YEAR??? IF THIS IS TRUE, THIS IS ABSURD!
CUT EVERYTHING, CLOSE EVERYTHING. THEY DO NOTHING TO PROTECT US ANYWAYS. PULL OVER THE IDIOTS WHO BOOM AND THUMP THEIR CAR STEREOS EVERY DAY AND THE CITY COULD WRITE AT LEAST 100 TICKETS EVERY DAY OUT AT GRATIOT AND 12 MILE! RAISE THE FINE AND PENALTIES FOR SPEEDERS AND IDIOT BOOMERS! I NEED ACROSS THE BOARD TAX CUTS, NOT TAX INCREASES! I'M BLEEDING MONEY DRY AND THIS MILLAGE INCREASE IS B.S.!
LET 'EM GO BROKE. FIND THE MONEY ELSEWHERE. WHAT DID YOU BASTARDS DO WHEN TIMES WERE RIDING HIGH? WHEN OUR HOMES WERE OVER VALUED FOR ALL OF THOSE YEARS YOU WERE RIPPING US OFF? WHAT DID YOU DO WITH THAT MONEY?
SCREW THIS MILLAGE AND ALL FUTURE MILLAGES. LET THE CITIES SHUT DOWN. I AM FULLY ARMED, I DON'T NEED PROTECTION, I CAN TAKE CARE OF MYSELF.

Make sure the teachers get all the money they need. How much do they need you ask ? What ever it takes for A teacher to be financially secure. After all it's about the children.

Might as well live in a cardboard box. Tax tax tax, that's all these bastards want to do to us. Tax until there is nothing left to spend. Sat down the other day, figured out that I have about 25 cents left on every dollar. After property tax, paycheck taxes, consumer taxes on everything I buy, cell phone taxes, which are idiotic and relentless, untold energy taxes on my electricity and heat, water, gasoline.....omg, tax me on the money saved that I WAS ALREADY FRICKIN TAXED ON! WTF IS THAT???
But, you never ever hear about our "leaders" taking pay cuts or offering to pay for their own health care or what the frick EVER! It's never about cuts. Come on, I don't use the buses, most people don't, but we are all FORCED to pay for the system? What the hell is that about? The ZOO? If I want or need to use them, I'LL PAY FOR IT! This is taxation without representation, FORCED to pay for something I will never use! It's non stop madness! I have to pay for out of town unmentionables to come and use the schools THAT I PAY TAXES FOR? wtf is that? If I want to use the senior center some day, I would expect to have to pay for it. If I want to use the library, I should have to pay for it. Bus system, I will pay for it, GLADLY! what the hell is going on?
Here in Roseville, I see and hear HUNDREDS of people blaring and booming their car stereos every single week, and I've never ever seen one pulled over and ticketed. Our great mayor, Chirkun, came by my house one day to show me that 33 people were issued tickets for loud stereos, IN THE FIRST 8 MONTHS OF THE YEAR! What a frickin' joke, there is that many every day, booming near my neighborhoods! START WRITING SOME DAMN TICKETS, RAISE SOME FRICKIN REVENUE, GET CREATIVE. Stop bending us over. EVERYONE, please vote no for every millage, screw these cities and municipal leaders, tell them we've HAD ENOUGH! I would or could never ever ask the people I represent for more money without cutting my pay or benefits FIRST!

Bill Ford can't enter any bills in Lansing. Bill Ford Jr. is chairman of Ford Motor Company. What he did was announce that he favors a removal of the PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX. This is in no way related to residential property tax millage requested of voters.
