You can’t use Alinsky community agitator tactics against Mooslims.
Them homeowners better watch out. Why, if they don’t pay them property taxes, the city of Detroit might foreclose on their home.
(insert sarcastic laugh here)
>>”Why pay taxes?” asked Fred Phillips, who owes more than $2,600 on his home on an east-side block where five owners paid 2011 taxes.
$2600 in taxes is a pretty steep rate when most homes in Detroit are only worth about $25,000 to $30,000 and even then are over-priced.
Ah, the joys of socialism.
Paying taxes is racist.
Since 47% is about the literacy rate for the denizens of Detroit:
1. Detroiter's didn't get anything from the Detroit public schools.
2. Detroit inhabitants can't read their tax notices.
Maybe if they started accepting Food Stamp and Welfare cards...???
You don’t own property in Detroit you rent it from the givernment..
The positive is there is nobody thats not too lazy to force you to pay “the TAX”..
WAIT!... that’s true in all precincts in all of America..
ALL americans pay rent to local, State and Federal givernment..
Only difference is some places have people still determined to force you to pay up..
You know..... PAY your RENT to the givernment..
$2,600 is chicken feed. Can you imagine how fast I’d be kicked out if I failed to pay the property tax.
They know they have the city by the shorthairs. Detroit already has a backlog of vacant houses that will take them till Christmas Eve, 2027 to demolish. The last thing they want is one more.
The city wrote off large chunks of neighbohoods a long time ago. Anyone in those areas - justify them paying taxes? I can’t. If the city stopped services to me, writing off my neighborhood, not fixing roads, lights, sewer, hell I couldn’t live there, less pay taxes.
