Really? German Villiage, Victorian Villiage, Clintonville, Grandview Heights are scummy? Maybe you should go to HER realty and check out one of their shacks! Our 1200 sq ft bungalow probably appraised 3 times of your cookie cutter suburbia home outside of 270!
Very logic thinking of you, thinking a poor person from the shack can afford to go to the zoo 20-30 times a year. Yea I heard lots of the rif raffs are driving to Powell every weekend.
Sure kid...the big CEO with a portfolio the size of Buffett's lives in a 1200 square foot house.
If your tax increase is only $20, your property is worth less than $100k. And unless you're only getting 5 miles to the gallon, you'd have to live 20 miles from the zoo and make 20 or 30 round trips to burn $200 in gas.
Which nationality are you today? And what happened to your mansion in UA?
Just grow up, troll...I've owned you for years and today was just another slap upside your sloped skull.

What happened to your avator? Did you lose your account or someone hacked into it? Did I say my house worth $100k? Maybe I live in the pool house in my parents back yard that worth $100k do you know what a pool house is?

And you obviously do not know how to budget a trip to the zoo, I have to hire limo driver $50 an hour,$750 for a catering service and $250 for a clown to entertain us. You wanna make some cash and be an a$$ clown I'll be more than happy to assist your child's 529 college savings plan.

I'm tired of telling you nationality and other info, go back and look or take med if you suffer Alzheimer.

It's just pure sour grape, you are trying to punish people with success and ask them to pay for your welfare, this is very sad you should try to work hard and pull your own bootstraps, seriously.

The Powell police know who my father is and may I suggest get yourself in a higher tax bracket so public servants will protect you. 75 mph on a 35 limit is okay when the car is registered under his name...

Oh hey and one more thing, stay away from our business in CMH douche! When big business decides to build a zoo or move a big corporation into a little Hilliard (which is never) you can voice your worthless $0.02!

"The American economy is less entrepreneurial now than at any point in the last three decades. That's the conclusion of a new study out from the Brookings Institution, which looks at the rates of new business creation and destruction since 1978.

Not only that, but during the most recent three years of the study -- 2009, 2010 and 2011 -- businesses were collapsing faster than they were being formed, a first...".
