Keith Davis and Pamela Schwartz celebrate at McLadden's Irish Publick House Tuesday after the Northampton Proposition 2 1/2 tax override passed.

NORTHAMPTON — Northampton voters overwhelmingly approved a $2.5 million Proposition 2½ override Tuesday, the second time in four years residents agreed to permanently pony up more in property taxes to retain city and school services.

If that’s how the tax payers react imagine what the city employees who are getting a $2.5 million raise are doing.

Eyes rolled up in their heads passed out in an ecstatic dream.

Or as my Dad used to say

“A Kennedy is someone who wants to give your money to the poor and get credit for doing it.”

Can we stop using the word, “liberal,” to describe them? It’s long since a time when they were actually liberal.

It might just be the picture, but if you some familiarity with Northampton, MA, it ought to come as no surprise.

Even by Massachusetts standards, Northampton is Gay Central - it has the most lesbian couples per capita of any city in the U.S.

And every city clerk, fireman, teacher, policeman & so forth in small & big towns across the land become multi-millionaires. This is where most of this tax money is going.

She’s making the same “sissy fist” that lib congressmen & senators (Delauro, Kennedy) make during one of their deranged rants.

That brief-a$$ little flit on the left can’t weigh a hundred pounds. Good grief. What’s become of real men in this country?

Agreed. Rather, they are leftists, socialists, communists, statists, low-information deluded idiots, and parasites.

The scowling broad in the background is probably a dismayed homeowner.

That’s funny, in my solidly GOP school district, the doughy soccer moms and their feckless husbands will damn near burn a cross in the front yards of their fixed income elderly neighbors if they come out against a school levy. Lots of “pay it forward!” And “if you can’t afford more taxes, then pack up and move!” The last time around, it was more taxes so their kids they whelped out could play games and be in clubs at the expense of their neighbors. These good suburban conservatives have sense of entitlement that would make an inner city welfare queen blush.

They are idiots and don’t realize the government schools are socialism and that government is evil and never works and must be kept limited. private schools, private roads , private hospitals might actually work as in the private electronics market ( smart phones etc

property taxes are also socialism , rent to the government. private property = freedom = free market = capitalism = choice = human rights

A small town raising broad-based taxes to pay for services for itself is a good exercise in self-determination — more power to ‘em, really. Bears no resemblance to “tax the rich” nonsense in California or New York, where a big minority (public employees and welfare recipients) connives to force its way into the pockets of a small minority.

In a perfect world, the bulk of our taxes should be local.
