Butter them up, tell them how good they are THAN while they smile and hide – TAX THEM TO DEATH!ONLY YOURSELVES TO BLAME – YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE Buried in Brannans Meaningless Soliloquy:“But given that the city’s only mechanism for raising revenue is going to be through property taxes, I don’t know how much more urgent it could be to ensure the taxes are done in a way that is fair”
