Time to fight theft by taxation

I see where the always hungry lion is hungry once again, as evidenced by his mighty roar. "We've got to tax more, we are always out of money."

Yes, Kane County Forest Preserve District, the hungriest lion, has declared that they have spent nearly all the $30 million that they stole from the taxpayers (fools who voted for it) in the 2011 referendum and they, like all good hungry lions, need more.

So he/they are setting the table for yet another referendum and, from the sounds of it, are just now trying to drum up support from their community group -- already overtaxed tree-huggers who don't get it and will blindly push for another theft by taxation for yet another one in possibly in 2016. He even has the gall to remind us that just about that time the taxpayer will start to experience some "relief" from the past "thefts by tax" courtesy of that governing body.

So what he is saying is you and your wallet will feel better because you will get relief, but we don't want you to get too comfortable, so we're going to nail you again. Nice logic, Mr. Politician, nice logic. Perhaps since you are so good at logic, can you explain how this (if it indeed does go through) will help, in any way, the financial condition of those many of us who are on fixed incomes? Perhaps all you really need to say is "we want to be like Cook and DuPage counties, and have multi thousands of acres of land that we acquired by theft tax."

It's time to rally the troops who are against theft by taxation.
