Caveat Lectores on Florida’s Tax Burden 12-18-2010

Never one to just believe everything pushed upon me by the media, politicians and Teabaggers, the Lector decided to do a little elementary but secondary research into just how bad we Floridians are getting gouged on taxes.

Let’s face it; the state and local governments are out of control with all those wasted tax dollars. Right? They are bilking us out of everything we have just to support a bunch of lazy public employees. Right?

If you believe what the right wing conservative nutjobs like our governor-elect Rich Scott are telling us, you are one complete dumbass, and you deserve all the bad things that go with Rich Scott style tax reform.

Should you decide you cannot take any more Florida tax oppression and find the need to move, you will find your opportunities for tax freedom are limited to Wyoming, Nevada or Alaska.

We have been bombarded with lies about how much taxes we pay in Florida. We are 47 on the list. That number is suspiciously close to the same number that ranks Florida’s education system. I guess you get what you pay for.

The governor and the Florida legislature are about to go into session to see if they can make your life a little more difficult by making sure you have less service for what you actually do pay.

Rich Scott wants to destroy state and local government to create 700,000 jobs. HOW? He wants to treat state employees like third class citizens. They were already treated like second class. He wants to decimate the prison system. He wants to “reform” the 4th cheapest state to make it cheaper yet. The right wing nut jobs called Florida legislators are willing to help him do it so long as they can get their cut of the vig.

Now get your ass to work. If 12% of Floridians who are unemployed would work harder and for less, they would not be unemployed. What?

BOHICA. If you are public employee, you need to find a right winger and get them to kiss you before they screw you.

And oh yes, have a nice Day?
