Rising taxes, rising crime, less jobs, ridiculous rent, rising cost of living, no pay raises, liberal policies... Gee, I wonder why anyone would leave?

I went to New Jersy to see Snookie ... and I was amazed how in NJ, it is illegal to pump your own gas. the price of gas is easily $0.50 cheaper. so I was wondering how you can afford to pay someone to pump gas and it is still cheaper than what we pay here in Rottenchester.
What that tells me is that someone is making one hell of a living just off the taxes here!

Does Maggie keep all that money for herself?

7 million left, but how many million Welfare people moved TO New York since it's the easiest state to get welfare, food stamps, Obama Phones, Section 8, Medicaid, utilities paid?

Why the heck would anyone want to leave NY???

- Highest property taxes
- Highest sales and income taxes
- Cutting school programs and increasing student head count in classes
- No industry other than ripping off city officials and lying to them that your going to build your company headquarters at midtown. Then the next day sell your company and make out with millions of dollars and leaving your hometown nearly bankrupt.
- Gotta put extra locks on your door to keep the uneducated teens from breaking into your house.
- High unemployment rate

Those are just a few reasons, but I have no idea why people would have to move.

He was never fired. He's too valuable to the popularity of the radio station. Try listening to Savage too... you might learn something.

I was worried you had moved to Mississipi and had gotten beat up and run over by a Ford F250.
