George Bush went on TV tonight to tell us that the US Economy is in trouble.
George, did you just wake up and find that out? You mean YOUR economy is in trouble; mine has been hurting for a long time. And it’s you and your cronies that have been gaming the system and reaping huge profits at our expense that’s caused it.
Then, John McCain announced that he is putting his campaign for President on hold and postponing his debate with Barack Obama. Gee, why not just postpone the election? Keeping Bush in office, or electing McCain would be just about the same thing. Anything to avoid going head-to-head with Obama.
Then the announcement that made it all better: Niagara County is now Number 1 in the entire country!
Property taxes, of course. The Washington DC based Tax Foundation issued a report that had Niagara County at the top in terms of taxes as a percentage of home value. The combination of high taxes and low real-estate values is a double-whammy for us.
But once again, we knew that all along.
