I’m going to recycle a posting that i did on Dkos last month, with appologies to those few who saw it then:
Yesterday I got a mailing from the Board of Chosen Freeholders of Union County, NJ, where I live. In it, along with the usual bunch of self-congratulatory promotional boilerplate wherein the freeholders took credit for everything short of the sun rising this morning, was this statement:
We are supporting a citizens’ convention of property taxes and any other measures that would reform New Jersey’s system of property taxation.
Well, I have a modest proposal for the citizens of this convention: Let’s give New Jersey back to the Proprietors.
