At the end of the aeon of Pieces, the zeitgeist is a storm. Wisdom comes from within if we question authority, and our actions determine our identity. In like a lion, out like a lamb, the storm wind blows. Beware Caesar the ides of March are come. "... shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. "
Consider when JP Morgan Chase merged with moribund Washington Mutual Bank in a $1.9 billionbuyout in 2008. Chase, the new owner, added more than 2,000 WaMu locations to its portfolio. Now, if those banks were homes, and you were the new owner, you could rest assured the property would be reassessed by the county assessor and then taxed accordingly. But very few of Chase’s new properties have been reassessed, according to the report – including the bank at 1455 Baker Street in Costa Mesa, which was last reassessed in 1998.
