    So taxable base decreased? Didn’t see that coming, but hey! We tried, that is what counts. The means justify the ends.

      Nashville is very nice and surprisingly pretty liberal as well. If you want to manufacture something come to Jackson, we will welcome you and our cost of housing is very reasonable, and no personal (from your job) income taxes either.

      Darn that pesky math - it strikes again. Ayn Rand in action.

        In this case it’s probably the idiot son of Taggert Industries. He needs to stay there and bear the fruits of his decisions.

        This reminds me of New Jersey, who did the same thing - and the same thing happened. Leftists think if you just hike takes, on paper all that new money will magically be there and all the leeches are happy. On a similar note, they think if you cut taxes then (on paper) you will have automatically lost all that money, never taking into account all the other factors.

        One of the factors they never seem to take in is that we're a free nation that allows its citizens to pull up stake and move to any state that they want at a moment's notice, taking millions and millions of tax revenue with them.

        The downside of this is those rich liberals go to the surrounding states and eff those up too. I don't want a single liberal leaving California, only going there.

          Remember just a few years ago when a big hedge fund guy moved himself and his whole operation from NJ to FL and NJ had to hold and emergency session to redo their ENTIRE budget because of the tax shortfall created by this one guy and his operation? I do.

              Well, at least they are punishing the rich. That is the important part.

                I’m convinced New Jersey is an idiot colony. I understand you can’t kill squirrels there,

                Dumbass Maxine doesn't live in her district now, how long before she is allowed to not live in her state?

                It'd be quite fitting if these liberal states built a wall in an attempt to keep all these tax-skippers from leaving.

                800K millionaires living in Cali, 137 millionaires leaving Cali = 0.0% millionaires have left. I'm sure there are at least 15 millionaires on my block.

                You probably park your van on a different block every day.

                  Please don't try spinning your bullshyt about being some executive who is doing well.

                  Anyone who has six jobs in four years isn't even a good receptionist.

                  You are old school. I'm planning on quitting this one in the next few weeks. I put in a year.

                  Your strategy would make sense if you were younger than 32, but you ain’t
