"Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,

and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the
world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What the heck happened? Can you spell "politicians!"

And I still have to "press 1"

for English.

His rise to fame has lowered like a flickering light so he better not if he likes his surroundings and would like to stay.

Hope this doesn't get taxed or I get sent a bill

"Government" is an insatiable money hog. Politicians, especially at the federal level, become addicted to the unlimited flow of tax dollars into their coffers. For them, the longer they stay in Washington, "too much is never enough" becomes part of their DNA.

That post has been going around the world in syndicated emails for 10 years now. Last time I read it on here some one posted that the politicians have not figured out how to tax us taking a crap yet. I responded: "oh yes they did, we pay sewer taxes as part of our property tax bill"

Default No free lunch!

The list is long and sounds bad,, but every dime helps to provide the services that we get. What tax and service do we NOT want? Thereís no free lunch ~ someone has to pay and if youíre using the service you pay the tax. I donít have a dog so I donít pay the tax but not for that reason. I didnít travel by plane this past year,,, so I didnít pay that tax, my elderly 90 year old mother in law doesnít own a car any more and she doesnít pay the taxes for vehicles.

Do I want schools,, yes and Iíll pay the tax. Do I want my property,, yes Iíll pay the tax. Do I own a recreational vehicle, no and I donít pay the tax.

Remember too, that if we donít like something we have the right to go to our elected officials and talk with them. I write weekly to mine, and call at times. Iíve been to more meetings with our local government people and talked about issues, some are resolved and some are not. But I communicate with them, even the ones I didnít vote for,,,,,, they are my representatives. I hire and fire by my vote, my tax dollar allows me to.

Remember there's NO FREE LUNCH! You use it you pay for it.

Add up all of the taxes you pay, now add to that all of the costs for medical that didnít or wasnít covered by health insurance, add to this the cost of your insurance or that which you employer pays for you, for me itís a big amount! Yet that is by percentage less then the cost of living in a European country that pays 40, 50 or 60% of their wages per year to receive the same benefits.

Donít get me wrong I dislike insurance companies and I dislike paying for those items that will not be covered by (and should) insurance companies but my tax dollars out plus my medical coverage is still less then that of other nations.
