Froglegs finally some substance as you are correct. Should you get valuations of similar property that has sold you can lower your tax valuation. I have found the secret word call Thrun who is the mafia legal firm that represents the school districts across Michigan when they want to put another bogus issue back on the ballot. They only work for the schools and not the taxpayers who own the schools and them. So we are paying our enimies to promote legislation against us. I need some contact information on these bozos to learn more about them the paper shufflers so our representatives can provide the taxpaers similar services especially in the recent scam when 2500 NO votes are beaten by 700 YES votes. I think Gladstone had Dennis Rodman go to North Korea for them to get some more ideas from them and Obamanomics / Obamanation! Just need phone number and nothing from cuteass cheeseballs.

John,

Have you made it a point to research property values in your

neighborhood,

collect data from sales and appraisals,

likewise enlist the help of your neighbors and

attend your board of review and

all of you in concert demand that the board of review lower you taxes!

I did.

The board had an excuse as to their limitations of review, or some such fool reasoning,

nothing significant, but yet we couldn’t sell our property for the valuation they said was proper.

Since the Taxes are based on the value of the house and property. Why isn't the taxes lower when the value drops? My perception is the value will remain high so addional taxes will be the norm. Once the higher taxes are accepted there soon will be a cry of, we need more money because of a shortage of funds. This would be a good time for the Taxpayers to assert themselves and reply that we are having to get by on what our income is, so you can do the same. Thats when you will hear the cry of,Buts, its for the Children!

philcaron,

Ya-da - yada, yada, yoddle-youddle-loose noodle…

Here’s another figment for your imagination from another invisible omnipotent god of fact not fantasy.

How about attacking all the other’s here that don’t use real names?

You don’t seem to be as enthused about mentioning them.

It is that some are able to speak factually, not fantasy,

and that annoys the h.e.l.l. out your imaginary bean!

Yadah, yadah, yadah woppie doodle!

Frogleggs,Cheesehead. Baglady, Phil and I have been compared to squirrels. Let me tell you something abouts Squirrels they are very crafty and intelligent creatures and they are very good at figuring things out. When we swim we swim on our back, so we don't get our nuts wet. So remember we can figure a way to get into your feedbag. Just give us time.

Baglady or Bagguy or whatever you are does not matter as you are only a figment of ones imagination due to the fact you are invisible and not capable of standing behind your convictions and hiding behind your phony name meaning no one can put any merit in you, whizzypants, cheeseball-less, redass monkey,frogboobs, and a few others who are scared to identify themselves. How can anyone take you serious?

pc,

perhaps, I should have more accurately described your 'yodel' below...

thusly:

"Here is another verse to consider in your despotic, non-melodic yodel, pc.

The change above clarrifies your stance clearly...

Here is another verse to consider in your non-melodic yodel, pc.

PC, would have us believe that he is the ‘owner’ of the school system, but continues,

in the most oxymoronic and incongruous terms,

his steadfast denial to pay for his share and cost of the bill of ownership …

but, is so vigorously in a state of denial to pay the piper!

Once again, pc,

you and your innuendo are falsetto, in your song and dance approbation, intimating my purported corpulence…

what is your mind capable of conjuring,

if the words regarding my physical attributes were described as,

graceful, lithe, lithesome, supple, sylphlike, and svelt,

rather than your disparaging,

“fat baglady” proposition?

Yes the Fat Baggy Lady did sing and the issue is over for now. There will be an all out effort to make sure the owner of the schools have the same rights and priviliges as the schools scam plan. The fact remains that 2500 NO votes are more than an orchestrated 700 votes. Just pretending it is over is not going to happen because it is not over.

Whizzywhig,Frogleggs, What ever nameless nobodys, If you guys or should I say Girl's are so patriotic use your real name. Pretty easy to make (statments), when you don't use your real name. My point is that the ten commandments is from God. Everbody falls short this does not mean that the ten commandments have no merit. Its a goal and its written in the hearts of all who are willing to listen. We accept this while striving to do better.

Hey, kids (on both sides) -- the election is over! As entertaining as this has been, how about you all stop calling each other names and trading insults, and find something productive to do. Thank you!

What, johnny are you not able to understand when you read?

The ten commandants and the bible are nothing more than words.

Period.

What value are words, if no one reads, and heeds their intent?

Clearly…

The ten commandments again are just words, and of little meaning without positive participation or adherence, either by reading or practice.

Too many people crow about the ten commandments,

and show little regard for these words in their daily lives.

You john, ‘crow’ about these words all you want, but what does it matter if they are lost and fail to be understood and put into practice by your actions and writing?

Do the words hypocrite and hypocrisy ring a bell in your belfry?

End of story!

Phil, IS right on his comment The big joke of off election levies like recently need to be eliminated and it is NOT an issue of not enough money, it is NOT for the kids, it is a matter of greed while providing minimal education value with no accountablilty. The school board know's that alot of people will not go to the poll's for a second vote. Phil even stated it would pass because of a off election. It works for them all the time, that is why nothing was changed on the levy. Yes the truth hurts.

Frogleggs, You are so wrong, the ten commandments is the word of God. You need to read Matthew 7:6 it dicribe's your misguided thought. And anybody else here that believe's frogleggs comments. Also read Exodus 20:1 Whizzywhig, Why would anybody be writing for Phil? You got to be joking. Oh I get it, nobody is as smart as you.

Thanks for the note as I forgot to add Whizzy-his-pants on my list having the circus back in town at school board meetings. I am really impressed Whizypants you think I am such a good writer that someone must be writing for me even after graduating from public schools. I know now you really envy my writing skills and the fact I offer ideas and don't hide inside my Whiz wet panties. Once again I do use my name and am proud of my opinions that help you look smarter.

I have had an invitation to go to the school board meetings. I have been to more school board meeting than I care to remember and all they consist of is grandstanding and back slapping. I quit going and the recent vote is a perfect example. If the school board won't listen to 2500 NO voters they are not going to listen to anyone in there meetings. Should the posting clowns like Redass Monkey, Cheeseball-less, Frogyboobs and Doublebagger Lady attend, it will mean the circus is back in town.

The constitution is again,

just words,

and of little significance

without taking into consideration

and adherence by

our elected officials,

our dysfunctional two-party system,

our dysfunctional election system,

big business,

and the rich.

You should know, you can have various strictures on the books,

but if no one listen’s

WHAT GOOD ARE THEY!
