SOME  FACTS  TO KEEP  YOU  OCCUPIED  WHILE  WE  TWIDDLE  OUR  THUMBS  WAITING FOR THE LEGISLATURE TO TITHE  THE  TITANS OF WALL  STREET TO RESTORE SERVICES, BALANCE THE BUDGET, AND ENACT PROPERTY TAX RELIEF AND REFORM..

FACT:  The state is not complying with court ordered payments to school districts to ensure each child receives a “sound basic education.” They decided to “postpone” the payments begun by Gov. Spitzer.

TRY POSTPONING PAYMENT OF YOUR PROPERTY TAXES, FELLAS. SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

FACT:  A major cause of the financial ‘crash’ which devastated workers and caused cuts and slashed services and jobs was Wall Street’s questionable practices and lopsided compensation to the big boys who engineered the fall.

..BUT EVEN AFTER TAXPAYER MONEY WAS USED TO BAIL OUT THE SAME BIG BOYS; AND EVEN THOUGH THEY IMMEDIATELY RESTORED EXCESSIVE BONUSES AND OBSCENE COMPENSATION PACKAGES, SOME LEGISLATORS ARE AFRAID TO COMPELL WALL ST. TO REPAY A SMALL PORTION IN TAXES TO SAVE THE STATE AND RELIEVE HOMEOWNERS AND RENTERS WHO HAVE BEEN DEVASTATED BY THE LOPSIDED TAXATION.

WHY AREN’T THEY AFRAID FOR ALL THE FAMILIES WHO ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING THEIR HOMES OR USING UP ALL THEIR MEAGER SAVINGS TO PAY EXORBITANT PROPERTY TAXES OR RENTS WITH LARGE PROPERTY TAX COMPONENTS?

FACT: Some-not all- the media have mentioned how “brave” the governor and other administrators are to cut jobs and services and “stand up to” the workers who –by the way-are taking the brunt of the recession. In fact some of these pols themselves have talked about how courageous they are to kick the rest of us under the bus.

HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT THE GOVERNOR AND OTHER ADMINISTRATORS (AND ALBANY POLITICIANS IN GENERAL) HAVE GIVEN BACK NOT ONE PERK OR SALARY RAISE OR PRIVILEGE OR BODYGUARD OR EXTRA DOLLAR OF COMPENSION THEY GET JUST FOR BEING IN ALBANY!!!!

WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR OWN BENEFITS AND SALARIES I GUESS THEIR COURAGE FAILS THEMCOMPLETELY.

FACT:  In the midst of all the suffering caused by the shift of state funding responsibilities to property taxes and the chaos caused by the financial crisis, the state has blithely demanded that everyone TAKE MORE OF A HIT… except for themselves and religious and other “spiritual”property tax exempt entities (now holding 800 billion $$$in property off the tax rolls) .

Albany is apparently not “BRAVE ENOUGH” to ask the professionally holy or otherworldly  to pay a little bit back on the roughly ONE THIRD of NYS they own and NEVER pay taxes on. (Please correct me if it’s ONLY a quarter.)
