Its a wonder why my property taxes are so ridiculous - Someones gotta foot the bill.
I am not clear on what all of your post is saying.... The only thing I really get out of it is the bottom part.... Where I guess you are saying your property taxes are high because Churches are tax exempt.(?)

Your property taxes do not pay for churches. They do pay for schools.

Every church that gets built means less taxed property, means my taxes go up. My property taxes pay so churches don't have to. And that is disgusting.

And some churches, for example the Catholic Church, own hundreds of rentals and pay no taxes on the income from those. Someone has to make up the taxes, so we do.

Sorry, but I am worried more about money being given away and/or wasted than I am about the lack of taxation. You guys are using the same argument that puts tax cuts in the same catagory as "increased spending". The end result MAY be the same but the principles behind the two are totally different.

Ted Nugent is definately one strange dude,says some strange sh!t for the sake of publicity only, and has done some sh!tty things, but he has been very sucessful in the entertainment industry and made alot of $$$. However, he is nothing more than an entertainer. I don't care much for the guy but I like some of his old rock albums.

You go to church? Gosh it's no wonder I strongly dislike most religious people, apart from the Jimmy Carters and Reverend Al Sharptons, you know.... the Christlike people. I'm sorry, I keep vowing not to come back to this place.

Ted's no different than celebs from the other side. Babs said she would move out of the country if Bush was elected in 2000 and 2004. No luck there. Also, Susan Sarandon claims she would have moved to Canada or Italy if McCain was elected. They're all just overly dramatic.
