Hey, it’s property tax time! Happy New Year!

Are you happy with your taxes?

I feel once you become a senior, 65, you should not have to pay school taxes or college taxes, you paid them all your life.

Now you pay for young people with kids that live off the state, and keep having kids, for the state and us to pay for. They need a job, but oh, can’t work, “My back hurts.”

Maybe it’s time for us seniors to start running for office. We are on a fixed budget. Guess what it all boils down to, our so-called forefathers don’t want seniors to own and live in their homes!
