Viewpoint: Increase in tax meant to overwhelm the system
Citizens. Just in case you are wondering from whence orgininated the latest money gouge on your current property tax bill, look a bit further than your insatiable, fiendly local Rhinelander Screw-all District. The strings on the local aparatchiks head south to the Madison Marxists and thence directly to the National Education Association in Washed-Up, D.C. These are the real puppeteers who provide the locals with the wherewithal tactics to strip your wallet on a regular and incessant basis.
The Marxist tactic is simply this: overwhelm the system. Continue to let blood until the host turns white and expires, and, then, to transform the society into Kremlin-style misery.
Warning and prediction: Do not consider that this latest success at the cash-box polls signals the end of further monetary demands from the declining enrollment school bureaucrats. Expect in the near future yet another demand to help educate the diminishing little darlings. Public need is private graft. Get ready to fork over, Rover.
As well, you should expect Oneida County to plead for higher taxes as their coffers also face the “declining enrollment” of tax-foreclosed properties, a pipe-line which has no end and extends well into the foreseeable future. Reeling estate is one lousy investment, as every foreclosed property puts a bullet-hole beneath the water-line of the ship-of-state-and lessens other properties still afloat. Uncle School wants you.
