    Re: New York Losing Population? Well Done Democrats

    Once you get away from the cesspool of NY City, the rest of the state is absolutely beautiful country of wonderful lakes, pristine forests and quaint cities and towns. Being a next door neighbor we see and hear the issues. Besides the high state and local taxes, property taxes are 2-3 times neighboring Pennsylvania(at least). A couple years ago I was looking a tract of timberland in south central New York. Property taxes after a forestry credit we almost $20k/year. I ended up buying a similar tract of land in Pa but half the size and taxes were $1300/year with no credits. A home in upper Pa might have property taxes of $2500/year. 20 miles over the border for similar home and sq footage will run you double or triple that.


    Too bad they can't cut off NYC and give it to New Jersey and free the rest of the state from their insanity.

    Well geewillikers, Melvin. I wonder why? Could it be because New York, or more properly, the People's Republik of New Yorkistan is one of the highest taxed, most business unfriendly states in the country?
    Same thing happening in Hawaii, which I believe is the next highest taxed state behind New York.

    By my count, of the 9 states which showed population loses over the last year, four were liberal states and five were conservative states.

    Furthermore, upstate New York was where they saw most of the population loss. Downstate in and around New York City actually saw growth. Update New York is very conservative whereas the City itself is more liberal. So it looks like even in the Liberal states that lost people they only lost them from the conservative part of the state.
    Obstruction of Justice also applies to overt coercion of court or government officials via the means of threats or actual physical harm and also applying to deliberate sedition against a court official to undermine the appearance of legitimate authority.

    Right winger are truly like children, completely idiotic children. They all just keep posting the dumbest ****. Oh, california, new york are poopy heads. Forget the fact that the unhealthiest, poorest, most uneducated states are republicans run ****holes. Or the fact the blue states, the cities, bring in the majority of wealth in this country. It's where the jobs are. And due to demand, its also higher cost of living than bumble**** where there are not many jobs.

    The dumb just never ends with them

    And you would be wrong. You see as it turns out the city itself actually saw an increase in population. A high cost of living is actually driven by population increases. The more people want to live in an area the more it drives up the cost of housing, land, and rental properties.

    Besides New York, the other states that also saw year-to-year population declines were Illinois, West Virginia, Louisiana, Hawaii, Mississippi, Alaska, Connecticut and Wyoming.
