Nice to throw stuff like this back in the face when the developers snidely ask us to by back the endangered property.

Our taxes already help the developers, so why dont we demand they pay us back?

Here we go once again.

Bloomberg and Benepe at the Parks Department give our land away to a private developer (along with our tax dollars to build a profit making business), then inflate the price of restoring and developing a park.

Why inflate? Kickbacks babe, kickbacks! What did you think: this is a church or some kind of honest operation?
