This is like peeling a rotten onion: the more layers come off the worse it smells! This fraud has touched everyone, leaving the taxpayers in the position of having to bring in their water in drums and taking their sewage out personally in order to avoid the sewage tap fees approaching $300 a month.
The more I read about IJ the better I like them. I’ve heard one of their attorneys speak about one of their cases, and was impressed. When I called the lead attorney in the Tait case (see the article) he was cordial to a fault, and he graciously allowed me to quote him in the article.

Paper money is not money. It is paper. Given sufficient quantities of the stuff, it’ll become totally worthless, impoverishing those who think of it as money. This is a lesson the folks in China are about to learn, just as we are.
I was so glad to write this article. It’s the first ray of sunshine in a long time. Now if this little bit of pushback can be accelerated and expanded to other areas that desperately need trimming…
When the 82,566 fans of the New York Giants cheer their team at the home opener of the season this Sunday at the New Meadowlands Stadium, they will likely enjoy the game more than the taxpayers of New Jersey who still owe $266 million on the old Giants Stadium which was demolished to make way for the new one.
