I agree, Dr. Walter Williams is my favorite opinion writer. He is very intelligent and speaks truth from the heart. He is also my favorite fill in for Rush. Now on with what is really on my mind.
I would like to thank all the people who attended the Tea Party to protest higher taxes, then turned around and voted for the school bond to RAISE MY TAXES ANYWAY!!!!! So then I get my tax statement from the county and what do you know? They raise the appraisal on my house by $5000 dollars. Which means I get a double tax increase this year. So as home values decline and ALL levels of government, city, county, hospital, and ISD want more and more, it is solved by raising the value of my house to get a little more money "for the good of all". So a big thanks, once again, for those who helped pass the school bond, and a big thank you to the appraisal district for valuing my home for more than what I paid for it.
