My family's debt is now $314,248 (according to the debt clock)

My children will be saddled with a yoke of debt. And the thanks go to Uncle Sam (Obama, Bush, Tiberi, and the rest of the wrecking crew). Not to worry, there is enough thanks for both sides of the aisle.

Remember, this is quite a legacy to leave to our children. A creditor nation to a debtor nation in a generation.

I have to ask once again: And you still care about party politics?



Note: I received the Tiberi Christmas card today, including a picture of his family. I wonder if he tells his children that daddy helped destroy a nation, and their futures. I wonder.

PS: Keep in mind that my family has another debt of 10K due to Olentangy. Then there are the plethora of other governmental entities stacking up debt. We are a debtor nation.

You are wrong about your Olentangy bill. According to the Delaware County Auditor, last year you paid $3,380.40 and that number won't even come close to $10,000 this year. http://oh-delaware-auditor.governmax.org/propertymax/rover30.asp?sid=2194F03448D644A1B528CA2D507B7AB3

Jim,

Just wondering how you came up with 10k to Olentangy. Your property has a total tax of $4737.06 and $3380.40 of that is school tax....about 1/3 of what you say you owe Olentangy...

Our country has been in debt for a long time. It is the american way.

9:40 and 10:01 --

Wouldn't it have been easier to have read the post instead of doing all that research?

The issue is DEBT. Not tax payments.

Go to the district's CAFR to find its total debt -- over $300 million. Then divide by taxable properties.

note: I assume that you are a reflexive district apologist, doing whatever it takes to defend the indefensible.

My goodness. Jim--don't your arms get time playing Whack-A-Tard? When will these OFK/PTA/OLSD parasites get a clue?

Hear that whistle, teachers and administrators? That's the Olentangy Taxpayer Gravy Train. Get on board, now! Git!! Be sure to enjoy the benefits...

That was a total setup for the stupid and they took the bait hook line and sinker.

I saw that one coming a mile away.

Nice work Jim.

Jim,

Well then...I guess my debt to the district is much more because I owe my taxes ($3000 per year) plus your $10000 that you say you owe and I plan on living here for the next 20 years. My debt is $70000! wow...that's crazy. *sarcasm intended*

Nice work...except now I'm really depressed that my actual $10k tax bill is really worse that the checks I will write!

Hey district sympathizer, employee, OFKer...go look mine up too...it really is $10k...and there are a lot more of us that pay that much!

here's a reason why your debt is so high: http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/news/20091211/1afedpay11_st.art.htm?loc=interstitialskip

What about the simple idea of refusing to pay?

Speaking of stupid... the possessive of family is family's as in "My family's debt..."

Your title implies you have many families. Great job Einstein!

You're gonna make me cry.

Keep in mind that I graduated from government schools.

And hear I thought you apologists thought relativist education is so wonderful.

Jimbo--I think you mean "here". LOL.

I gradiated frum a govament skool 2.

What's that saying?--"A Waste Is A Terrible Thing To Mind"?

Well ... I sure hope the folks in Hampton Township, Allegheny County (PA) are happy with the result of all the property taxes they paid for teacher and administrator salaries ... and retirements.

To think, my HS English teacher is likely retired in Florida, living it up after all of his hard years teaching.

Mind you, he was also the basketball coach. As long as we didn't get too loud, we played board games while he devised basketball plays -- all season long.

It was a win-win for students and teacher. And a huge loss for the taxpayers.

But it is all about the kids.

What company could ever stay in business if it was $300MM in debt and at least 30% of its product was defective (note "at least").
