I skimmed the article, might have missed this but will it create jobs for the area? Does it benefit the City and it's residents somehow? if not, then don't give a (....) about it.

How does it come about,

that business has such unlimited access to our politicians, legislation and tax codes,

that are enacted solely for the benefit of business,

while legal American working men and women

get a poke in the eye and wallet with the proverbial sharp stick,

from OUR supposedly democratically elected government officials or more accurately

businesses “democratically” elected lobby lackeys?

How does it repeatedly come about, that businesses through government actions,

are able to take the legal American public hostage, year after year, and coerce working Americans,

to pave the way, literally, as in providing most all forms of educational, social and physical infrastructure

such as, highways, roads, bridges, seaports, and airports,

that in the main, benefit businesses from the backs and wallets, of working legal Americans?

Never forget,


passes on the cost of it’s operation, including taxes and profits,

onto the backs of it’s clients, customers, and eventually costs of business operation and profits, fall on their employees and customers completely,

the very same employees that are still working after business outsourced our jobs

in favor of higher profits, regardless if their customers at home, legal Americans, were left with a decent paying job...

or not!

Businesses continue to pay little in the way of taxes,

and they yet lobby for more tax breaks,

and their lackeys in government see to it,

that legal working men and women pay businesses share,

or suffer the consequences, by reducing or cutting everything that pertains to the working class if these taxes are not paid in full.

Tax abatement,

for PROFIT and


Businesses, locally, county, state and across this nation all clamor for TAX ABATEMENT.

They get their wish, and pay no taxes…

But, politico’s NEVER, EVER, INSIST that businesses

provide for the recovery of LOST TAX REVENUES,

that are ultimately transferred to the backs and from the wallets of legal working American men and women.
