Just another reason for the bastards to raise our property taxes again. It's sad when people get taxed right out of their own homes. When does it STOP???

Your Republican controlled State House is deciding that for you. Remember the Republicans initiated Market Value assessments and capped home assessments. Got to love them Republicans.

Cry me a river. Be glad your farmland is not valued the way other property is.

Homes are valued based on the sale price. So if I own a home that would sell for.$220,000, my property taxes are based on a value of $220,000.

If I owned a 100 acre farm valued at $900,000, my property taxes are based on a value of about $220,000.

Now who is really getting screwed here.

Seriously, you think 100 acres is worth $900,000? You realize that is $9000 an acre? If it has went up that much I am selling out.

Recently at a land auction in Union County a man paid over $10,000 an acre for land, guess what 100 acres. Just think it was bear land with no buildings over a million he paid.

If you have all that money in land would you let me work for you. I'll work for less than minimum wage. You can pay me with those government subsidies and those government backed no freedom to fail insurance checks.

We come here and work for rich people doing their yard work. Many of us work in factories sometimes being paid under the table. We get abused by these employers but we can't say anything cause they will deport us or fire us. If we get hurt in the work place by unsafe standards we can't get help cause they will fire us or send us back. Viva la Mexico

Who is the a$$ho1e who started this thread? We do get a lot of money from the government but we need it so we can buy more land. If our crop doesn't produce then the government hand-out helps us poor farmers. Before I die I want to own 5000 acres and have Mexican slaves living 10 or more in my tenant houses. Can't get any black slaves anymore.

But we need those Mexicans to bring down labor wages.
Now I know that poor people can't hire them but we rich people can. That way we get those white guys to work for less. We need to start hiring them for police and firemen jobs, you think? Some have said maybe we could get them to run for Congress and lower wages and benefits there, you think? Maybe we could get them to be the boss and lower wages there, you think? Now do you see what I am trying to do?

Vote for me and Bain Capital and I will bring them end by the truck loads. If we can't bring them in, will just ship the jobs overseas, OK?
