COMMENTS: Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our

nation was the most prosperous in the world, 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?

Ouch, you are talking my language there. I've said for 20 years that I don't see how the government can expect people to keep paying more and more taxes, but every year they sneak in something else, like re-evaluating your home every two years now, so you have to pay more taxes. Now our DMV (dept. of Motorized vehicles) has added on a "office" fee. Just another way to raise taxes. When will the tax-payer say ENOUGH?

I have been taxed to the point of $300K over 15 years or not being able to retire yet.

As for Canada, unreal. Its almost worth homesteading & not dealing in much money in Canada.

your right , thats what i said about the underground economeny booming ,people buying an selling trading etc. all without records ,lots of people will even prepare two estmates for work especially if they are confident that they can trust you and give you a better rate on work and stuff.

Clipper    Posted 09-13-2003 at 18:56:52       [Reply]  [No Email]
2 words....liberal democrats.


LH    Posted 09-13-2003 at 20:18:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
Actually It was the great Republican president Lincoln who started to tax such things as income to pay the debts from the civil war


Clipper    Posted 09-13-2003 at 20:30:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
You're right there....we sure come a long way from that....no matter which party is in power we are still getting hammered with too much taxation.... :^(


LH    Posted 09-13-2003 at 21:48:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yessir we sure are. Its bad when a person has to work over half the year just to pay their taxes


I got that licked...    Posted 09-14-2003 at 04:18:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Just 'quit' working...

Or just don't tell anyone when you do make a buck or two...

Hard to do when you are listed on a payroll and they use that convenient 9 digit number to follow you...

Same here as long as some idiot doesnt report paying you income so they can itemize and ya get nailed for not paying self employment taxes. Our attorney is currently fighting this little problem with IRS

The Republicans these days ain't exactly been frugal enough with your money and mine to win any awards :(
You pretty much got all of 'em there in CT, don't ya, Clipper (taxes, that is). I couldn't live there on what I make and I got a pretty good job.


Clipper    Posted 09-13-2003 at 19:16:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
I can't see how they can hit us much harder than they already are....course its still tax free to fart or hoochie-coochie with yer wife but I'm sure they'll get to that too in the near future. :^(


Les...Uh oh    Posted 09-13-2003 at 19:32:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
If they're thinkin of a tax on farts I best be changin my ways. That'd put me in the poor house for sure.


Clipper    Posted 09-13-2003 at 19:36:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nah....you gots all them tourists up there ta disperse the smell.... :^) Here they is worried bout clean air and the Long Island Sound....course we see everything from the New Yawk terlets out there now....


Les    Posted 09-13-2003 at 19:44:24       [Reply]  [No Email]
Oh sure, blame it on them poor New Yawkers from Lon Geyeland.
About a third of the state of NH drains into the Connecticut River and all them touristas has gotta go somewheres ";^)
Lucky for you my property drains into the Pemigewasset/Merrimack River and all ends up down to Newburyport, Massivetwoshutts.

Thought all you folks up there had septic systems an porta-potties....I still fish the Sound and Connecticut rivers but ah donates all of the catch to the minority food kitchens.

Oh, oh, Vic, does that sound familiar?
I think I said, "FDR started that 'the government will take care of all your needs' ball rolling....
and it has not stopped rolling since!"
LOL
