The whole thing about NY "tax incentives" just kills me. The state has businesses in their commercials saying "No other state could have done what NY did for us!"
Technically true, because no other state WOULD HAVE HAD TO because no other state's taxes SUCK AS BAD AS NY!
It'd be like if I stole $100 from you every week and then after a few months I only stole $80 and made you do a commercial saying "No other mugger could have done what Brian did for me!"
Of course not, Stupid, no one else was mugging you!
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
