USA Taxes....something to make you think... - Page 2

I am not saying that all illegal immigrants are uneducated, but the chick who tried to kill me was named Christina, enough said.
I am floored by this comment. What does a person's given name have to do with anything? The overt racism in this post is just baffling and plain evil.
I understand your need to vocalize a previous trauma you have had but I don't think its necessary or even productive (to you) to do in almost every thread in this forum...

No cigarette tax if you don't smoke. What is an "accounts receivable" tax?

I can't complain at all.

if you don't want your taxes raised more, don't vote Democrat.

It costs alot to keep a country running.

Wildfire? - run for the hills and good luck!! Neighbors poisoned your dog - well, move if you don't like it! Kids in school - be prepared to pay plenty for supplies. Wanna be a teacher - well, the families in the district will be required to supply your room and board; you get to take turns staying with each of them, and they don't all have inside plumbing.
And mom stayed home to wash clothes by hand, and canned all the veggies and fruits that she could, so they'd have something to eat in the winter (never mind that it's summer, over 100 degrees in the kitchen, and no AC). And electricity and phone service is for the rich - gotta send a message - send one of the kids! have too many kittens & puppies - either drown them or have the boys stone them with rocks, bullets are expensive and not easy to come by. neither is glass for windows, ready-made bed sheets and pillows.

Good post. Personally I would pay the taxes just for the indoor plumbing.

I would ask all members to please review the forum rules and guidelines: http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17161
TCS is an international forum, with members of all possible nationalities, ethnic groups, creeds, and political persuasions. For that reason, extreme, negative generalizations about any one group of people are not acceptable. Recent posts in this thread have therefore been deleted, in part because many of them, although well-intentioned, contained quotes or references to unacceptable statements.
Thank you for your comprehension.

P.S. Just a reminder: You still have the option of responding to a particular post by PM!

Or, for that matter, being Hispanic?
