Richard who send this in adds the following: “Your loyal followers might want to send letters to the editor and take Karl Frey up on his e mail request. They conveniently omit the $125 million dollars they don’t want to pay, and that they grieved their taxes of a million dollars and got them reduced to $500,000. They use that as the base for the taxes they will be paying forward.”
