Light voter turnout (uptown)

I voted today over at the Elks Lodge on 10th and Washington – at the same time I voted for the first election. Most certainly seemed like less people were out. But Oscar got a group “Awwww” from poll workers when we walked in!

In my triumphant return to posting..I will say this…Hoboken politics is as corrupt as typical democrat machines throughout the country. Chicago being the “ground zero” for corruption and who comes out of that machine?? Our Savior and failure of a president Barrack Obama. Don’t get me started on this useless Jimmy Carter type..I was elated to not be able to vote after thinking it through. I was out of town unexpectedly and dreaded choosing 1 useless democrat over another. I am so sad at the fact that I live in a state where so many people are so stupid that they keep voting in democrat after democrat. This state, because of typical useless democrat policy, is one of the worst in the country. Our taxes are ridiculous. Car insurance is ridiculous. Property taxes are ridiculous…Need I go on further? The only time I can remember where things got done was when Chritie Todd Whitman was in office. Other than that I cannot remember anyone that has done anything for our state except tax the crap out of us..Hoboken is no different. Criminal after criminal has run this town and now we are forced to live with this mismanagement. I don’t believe either candidate. I think that anyone that has voted for Obama and preaches fiscal responsibility is as retarded as an arsonist teaching fire prevention classes.

Uh – who pays more taxes so that building can pay next to nothing? Answer – THE REST OF US. It is absolutely taxpayer subsidized. Do they use the schools, the roads, the PD, the FD, the cross town bus (when it existed) or any other city service? You bet they do. They are subsidized because we pay their share of the tax burden. Stop pretending otherwise because you know you are full of it on this one. They not only don’t pay anywhere near it costs to provide city services to them, they pay something like 1/8th of what newer PILOT buildings pay on a per unit basis. At least those buildings probably pay their fair share of the burden (and expire – lets not forget the fact those PILOTS actually will expire in less than a generation, not still keep ticking after 2)

It’s NOT a taxpayer funded building. No tax dollars go to subsidize that building. The hate will eat you alive matt_72. Seek counseling.

They take my tax money and they give it away
My retirement funds getting smaller each day
So I’m here to stay and drive you insane
As I sit at my keyboard all day and complain
People live in church towers that don’t belong there
Because of them all no more silk underwear
I hate everybody who thinks differently
Oh please don’t take my money my money from me
You see I have no friends to share my frustration
This must explain my constant constipation
It just makes me sick and it rattles my brain
I want my free ride on the old gravy train
But like I said I don’t know anyone
So I’ll keep breaking balls on Hoboken 411

I would argue that so long as someone lives off of our tax dollars (as a resident in a taxpayer funded building or city employee), the taxpayers have every right to question your right to our tax dollars. You can do what you want when you aren’t being paid a salary by me. But I pay your salary, your rent, your food stamps or give you money in any other form, then I and every other taxpayer have every right to question whether our money is being used wisely. And in Hoboken, clearly that isn’t being done, not when a well run town could provide equal services w/ a budget a good 40-50% less than the current one.
