Please stop.

That picture up above shows on an ariel view of the developments completely walling off the waterfront from the public for the private corporations.

Gotta love today's globe article.
Vertex CEO’s pay falls 38% to $17.4m in second straight decline
https://www.bostonglobe.com/business...TcJ/story.html

Need another tax break on PRIME FRONT BOSTON OPEN SPACE PROPERTY?

They really could not plan a better platform for the public concerning the Seaport? Owe I forgot it's Menino Innovation district along with no real public access to the area but the Silverline Bus.

I have another name for it now. THE TAXPAYERS-SHAM DISTRICT--

It is obviously worth mentioning that Vertex was forced to reduce its tax incentives and pay some money to both the state and city when it didn't meet its hiring targets. That is, $8MM of the $22MM in tax breaks were paid back.

The two Vertex buildings now generate ~$12MM in taxes for the city each year. They should generate more, but I'll discuss that on a more appropriate thread.

Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. It's called an investment.

Really.............. I bet there would be a lot of investors looking to buy Fan Pier right from the beginning for the right price and would implement their building dreams on these sites.

What has been going on with the Seaport developments have been nothing more than FRAUD & Corruption between the ex-Menino Admin and the past BRA officials along with these corporations.

The Democrats in this state gave Liberty Mutual 46 Million in tax breaks not to leave the Backbay which happened to be under 5% vacancy?
That's not an investment that is stealing from the taxpayers at this point.

Have you ever thought about moving to Mississippi or West Virginia? You'd fit in quite well. You've made it abundantly clear that you feel slighted and taken in Massachusetts.

Re: Fan Pier

Remember when Rifleman went into self-impose exile and every thread didn't end up devolving into a conversation about tax? What can we do to get that back?

The only thing I remember was rifleman taking on a bunch of backward views on society in the national politcal forum.
That type of thinking gets us fan pier developments.
8 billion dollar taxpayer gift to the corporations and developers
no rapid transit access for the public
Fan pier mostly geared for rich/upper class society
What chap 91 is supposed to prevent basically got ignored on all open space on the seaport.
The area is mostly geared for automobiles access

Basically our politicians only took away from one group of business like downtown to only enrich the developers and corporations on the seaport.
Remember BID? The proposal of the greenway tax.

Wake the fuck up

I actually love the architecture in the Liberty Mutual Building. One of the better developments built that was molded into the backbay's character. Brilliant.
Now does that mean we should have given an insurance company that type of incentive to build in an area that is PRICELESS only 5% vacancy at the time. The democrats involved with this deal should be HUNG from a tree.

Middle-class Families cannot even afford to live in the surrounding areas in the city. But our officials are given these types of incentives to these corporations. For some reason I don't believe you study history. This is how you steal from the poor to enrich the wealthy overtime.

No----why would I fit in Mississippi and West Virginia quite well? You don't even know me.

Concerning mass I grew up in this state---what is concerning is the blue collared hardworking families of mass are becoming priced out of Boston. It's more geared toward a College, international along with rich upperclassmen entitled children.

There is no balance anymore


That is how seaport has evolved for the public and the Boston taxpayers

Your the same group bitching trump tax returns. But these billionaires who start these non-profit companies are basically avoiding to pay there fair share of taxes.

The Barr Foundation brought this on another level by stopping economic progress on a positive development for the public with money this agency does not pay taxes. I don't comply with this type of corruption.

I also believe the gates, Clinton, zuckberg foundations are nothing more than political ways to ploy their companies for the next 100 years by gaming the rules and regulations against future innovation in their sectors.

Does Clinton foundation even exist now? They were doing such great work.

As one example, Mark Zuckerberg gave $75m to San Francisco General Hospital. What the fuck do you contribute?

You don't know who I am ---

You want a better world --- Get rid of all the lobbyists and insurance companies and cap the amount of money you can actually sue individuals and institutions that actually have your best interest. Most Hospitals there should be a capped on malpractice lawsuits if there was an honest mistake. If a doctor goes rogue then that should be criminal charges.

But I do pay my fair share of taxes and also treat everybody with respect and not try to rip of everybody I come across like Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg is a piece shit. Just because he gave a hospital 75 Million makes him God in your eyes. The people also gave the catholic church Billions and what did they do with our money? The pope would not even convict the child molesters.

Lot of successful people also supported/donated millions to the Jerry Sandusky foundation? What did they fucking do.

Dude wake up-- Money is the root to all evil. Society is better when their is balance when people want to help people out of good nature. Not rip off each other through tax breaks or hey I GOT MINE and I'm better than you type attitude.

KMP something tells me you are part of this system

Re: Please stop.

I don't need to know who you are, nor do I want to but it's apparent that you're an angry, bitter little man with a lot of bones to pick.

That was a serious question though. You accused some of the most giving and charitable people on this earth of not giving their fair share and using their charities for personal gain, so again, what do you contribute? What do you do to better the world and/or the lives of others?

If it's nothing, which I assume it is, just say you don't/can't do anything.
