"Our sales tax is 22% and income tax is anything from 0-58% depending on the income. So pretty heavy (and I don’t even want to mention the gas price since you are sick already)"

-I think that ends the debate right there.

Which just proves how you've been brainwashed. Try doing something on your own for once. We all get unemployment as long as we don't act like assholes and quit.

We had a women work for us for 9 days and try and claim unemployment. BS! she was late 5 days, took off 3 and talked on her cell phone for the other 9 she was there! no she doesn't deserve unemployment. I'm proud that we (Fiance and I) can support ourselves, sure right now is tough, i need a new computer (I'm a photographer by trade and I can't edit with out one), a new cell phone and my Fiance was in a fender bender and needs to buy a $450 bumper for a Mercedes (below deductible.) So its a rough patch, I don't need the governments help to get through it, we have emergency savings for a reason.

Speaking of government help, my mother has been begging me to look into disability because of arthritis at least to get a free doctors visit out of it. The only reason I would accept it is if the business I'm working for continues to go down hill (its looking like either major restructuring or its going to close.) But I'd rather keep working, considering this is the first employer I've worked for that actually puts up with my limitations because of my problems.

I like being self sufficient. If you feel thats brainwashed I think you need to look in the mirror.

Where I'm from:

Sales tax - 7%
My income tax - 23%
Gas - $3.89/gallon

That Super Sport looks pretty cool. I wish some of the major manufactures would take note and make something other than a feet-forward cruiser. With the torquey motors they're using, a nice Holligan would be right on target, IMO.

Notice the Buell cues with the underslung exhaust?

Steel tooth fillings. Cancer death rates 200% of the USA's rate. Elderly people murdered by the govt doctors to make room in care facilities. Socialized medicine is simply wonderful.

Isn't it WONDERFUL! So that means if I'm relatively healthy and needs some occasional pain pills and maybe and Rx for an arthritis med then I'm A-okay but if I'm dying and REALLY need medical attention, or if I or my loved ones have a fatal illness that I die? No thanks. My grandparents are all still alive, I don't need or want that socialist BS, I'd rather live in pain than see my grand parents dead because of that crap.

My greatGrandmother lived till I was 12, the day after my birthday she died(in fact my great, great grandmother lived till i was 2.) She beat cancer 3 times, THREE TIMES! Your telling me she wouldn't have beaten it once in your perfect European utopia? Bah!

I'll second that, I really do like it. Though I wish it had a back seat.

I don’t know what you are talking about. As I said, in cases like hip joint replacement or removing polyps from the nose, when there is no hurry, you get to wait. That’s where the stories of “long waiting times” come from. But when in need you are taken in immediately.

For example if you crash your bike they take you in and fix you up. If your hand needs 10 microsurgeries to make it useful again you get them. If you need to stay months in hospital your folks don’t need to sell their house to pay the bill. That’s universal health care. And its good.

It would be stupid to give it up for some tax rebate. And it won't because it has like 99% support.

But at that time the donkey was the SUV of the ancient world. So perhaps Jesus would actually ride a Multistrada.
