Over 75% of West Point Cadets Refuse to Give Obama Standing Ovation!

President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported.

“Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported.

Supplemental Property Tax Opportunity

Quote from http://web.x234.com/: “Since the 2014 Prop. 2 1/2 override failed to pass we’re not going to sit back and watch the town go down the tubes. We realize that over 1,500 voted for it and in all likelihood, many others were in favor of it. We would like to give these people the opportunity to pay the additional taxes they so desperately wanted to pay. Although it won’t provide the full amount the schools asked for, it should at least make a big difference. We’re sure the Town of Northbridge will accept it.”

Oppose Northbridge override May 20

On Tuesday, May 20, Northbridge voters will be asked at the annual election if they want to increase their property taxes by more than 17 percent via a permanent, operational Proposition 2½ override. 

This equates to a $700 tax increase on a $300,000 home. Of course, you’ll pay more if your home’s value is higher than $300,000. 

This is a forever, year after year, tax increase.
