TI, on what planet do you spend most of your time??(credit to Barney Frank) Who is taking away someone else's second home here? How does zoning (i.e. regulations about where a gas station can be built, and that mean NOT on a lot that was zoned for a single family home.) The complaining Black Rock neighbors made a VERY bad decision in buying a "pig in a poke", purchasing in a development that was incomplete and largely deserted, and now they are complaining tha someone else has purchased some of the distressed property!! If he checked the zoning is his fiasco of a development, I am sure the writer would find that zoning does NOT allow gas stations, but DOES allow properties to be purchased by working people. You ARE, most definitely, Totally Uninformed.

I live on a planet where local officials are spending like drunken sailors and reaching their hands into my pocket to pay for it just because I own a piece of property in their jurisdiction. They don't think there's anything wrong with jacking my rates higher and higher because in their opinion I'm "wealthy" and an infinite source to be tapped. I consider that a threat to my property rights.

Did I say anything about who could or couldn't purchase that property? Your response to my post is a total non sequitur.

Your several posts are ALL non sequiturs. This has NOTHING to do with gas stations, losing a house to taxes, or the wealthy who think we should feel sorry for them when they have to pay taxes. What does ANY of that have to do with Talisker buying a building with condominiums that they will re-sell to their employees and possibly to the public? Isn't that all part of the great "free market" that you so adore? And once people own those homes, they will PAY TAXES on them,and pay HOA dues that might actually help to improve the neighborhood. How is that reaching all the way to DelRay Florida to take money out of your pocket? You know, there ARE issues in OUR community that are not related to your personal agenda.

Speaking of property rights, heard an interesting rumor this week, curious if anyone knows about it.

I heard the one of the Sweeney brothers is building a house for himself and got sued by a neighbor because the house is TOO SMALL and that it would negatively impact his property values.

Anyone know anything about it starting with if it is fundamentally true?

guess i should actually look at the Park Record front page...being lazy.

I don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about or why you are attacking me. Or what my personal agenda is.

T.U.-

Since some of the people can be fooled all of the time, we have dishonest folks routinely trying out foolish arguments, to see who takes the bait.

The idea that liberals want to take away second homes is a conservative idea (lie) designed to create fear of liberals.

The "greater threat" that you mention is a fantasy, it does not exist. It is an irrational fear conjured up for political purposes, and does not qualify as a "threat" since it is not real.

While there may be some crazy people who advocate the confiscation of second homes, to claim that this is a "liberal mindset" is dishonest and stupid.

Oh I'm not. I feel a lot more at ease now that I know my concerns are unwarranted.

Understand completely Jim. Many good working people who invested and helped build the complex lost out.
