Nope, just end it and chalk it up to life isn’t always fair. Sucks that I’ve paid and won’t receive anything too. But sometimes you have to pull the bandaid off, even if it stings.Can you pay back the portion of MY income that supported your parents and grandparents?
It’s called inflation, brought to us by the the folks at the Fed.My grandfather on my mother’s side was able to by a “farm”, had 2 servants, on a Lt.’s (Navy) salary, while his wife raised mother.
My great aunt, back in the 40’s had a palatial apartment, 3 bedrooms, staff quarters, in Manhattan, 14th E. 90th street. For the princessly sum of $45/month rent controlled.
My point is, why could my grandparents have such a higher standard of living than we have today?
In order for federal taxes to be "fair", they should only be collected and used to directly fund the necessary operations of government. Providing personal benefits of any kind unrelated to employment by the government is not a necessary operation of government. Further, it is inarguably unfair, as it provides goods and services to those who didn't pay for them, paid for by those who never received them. If we are to pay our "share", each taxpayer should pay the same amount as any other taxpayer, regardless of income. Otherwise, some will pay more than their share, while others pay less than their share.Yep, some one has to pay their fair share, either that or privatize SSI.
Most places in Florida. I've got ~3200sqft on a double lot. 3B/2B with a 750sqft garage and shop. 160K.$275K Where can you get a house that cheap?
Central Florida is certainly not limited economically.In a place with limited economic opportunities.
Sorry I didn't put that in. It was basically incremental legislative change. The first two paths were obviously more drastic and though provoking, but incrementalism is more insidious aka frog in a slowly boiling pot syndrome.Did anyone ask the OP what the third path was?
It is surprising how many here don't realize that today's youth were weaned on politically correct (PC) indoctrination. Y'all missed the panic over global warming completely. That fear was put into them since kindergarten. Most of you have no idea what goes on at the schools because it was really just free daycare so you could go to work.
Yup..................two biggies on the tax bill...................we even have a more costly system here, the grade school and high school are separate districts, so double the administrations. Why not pay twice?My property tax statement says it wasn't free and I don't even have any kids.
Time to defund these schools. They are indoctrinating these kids to take over the country.Yup..................two biggies on the tax bill...................we even have a more costly system here, the grade school and high school are separate districts, so double the administrations.

Well I certainly do understand the money my bosses and myself went to fund the retirements of your parents and grandparents.You do understand that the money goes into and out of the same bucket, right? Apparently you don't.

Pay yourself first, 401k, 403b, IRA, and ROTH. No one wants to live within their means or under anymore. Nope you CANNOT have it all.
Most of the folks I hear whining about no SSI when they retire are NOT putting a dime away for it. Yep that new F150 every three years is NOT a necessity. Neither is that 3,600 square foot 3/2 house. You only have one kid for cryin out loud.
I asked one father I know nearly 20 years ago whether he resented paying taxes to support public schools he didn't use (because they weren't very good), and instead paying out of pocket to send his own kids to the local parochial school. His answer surprised me. This successful, conservative business man told me he is successful because his customers have money to spend, money they wouldn't have if they weren't educated. Since not everyone could afford to pay for K-12 educations like he did, if it weren't for public schools, people would likely be less educated and he, and society, would be less successful.Time to defund these schools. They are indoctrinating these kids to take over the country.
And why should i pay school taxes... i dont have any kids. Why am i paying for somebody else`s idiot to destroy my country.
That's just time. With passing time everyone fades into obscurity, even the most famous. Who now remembers movie stars of the 30's abd 40's? Even if you were the biggest star/warrior/singer of your day and in 100 years almost no one will know you existed.I do the laying of the wreaths at Arlington every year and always pay him a visit.
You are so correct—outside of military circles, few know of him and his heroism.
