Seems roads - local ones - would be something property taxes should be used for. Property without road access doesn't have much value.

However, if the online retailer is selling an item to a customer outside of its home state, then it is not required to collect sales tax from that customer.

In addition many states (mine, for example) require you to pay state sales tax on all out of state purchases including internet purchases via reporting on your state income tax return. If your state doesn't require this or has no state income tax or state sales tax then you don't need to pay tax.

Radio Shack has a few things that are handy. I bought some solder and a soldering iron holder from them a couple of months ago. They fill a niche that few others do.

OT, but yes...I have four kids, three school-age, none of whom are in the school system, and I pay property tax on two houses that amounts to about half the bill. I pay for others, and teach my own. Yae.

I can't figure out why so much $$$ goes toward the school district and a lot of these kids are plug-stupid.

Human intelligence is declining

http://rt.com/usa/news/intelligence-...s-fragile-531/

"Dr. Gerald Crabtree, a geneticist at Stanford, has published a study that he conducted to try and identify the progression of modern man’s intelligence. As it turns out, however, Dr. Crabtree’s research led him to believe that the collective mind of mankind has been on more or a less a downhill trajectory for quite some time."
