This is too funny. If you read the article the town offers gold plated services especially to illegals, who make up half the town's permanent population. Maybe the city should charge $500 to enter the town if you are not a permanent resident. Make those Wall Street bankers and celebs pay. LOL!!!

Yep. Reading between the lines, you find out about the services to all the “working class” folks and illegals. Perhaps the employers should be more directly responsible for taking care of “the help.”

TAX THE RICH (except for ours)
Looks like they’ll choose the same old tired solution: raise taxes. Heaven forbid the local governments would have to cut back.

Funny (not!) that these billionaires visit their homes staffed by illegals whose year-round “cares” are subsidized by loans from the rest of NY while they max out their donations and hold fund-raisers for “The Chosen One”.
What the hell are these “caring” people doing flying into a city provided airport anyway? Shouldn’t they be bicycling in? OH, nevermind, I forgot they’re buying carbon offsets from Algore!

(My eye hurts dammit!)
Hamptons also have a large number of working-class people, many of them illegal immigrants,...
CRY ME AN EFFING RIVER!!
