The anxiety of living in Trump’s America


#61

My property taxes on the house is 3500 this year, value 650K.
Daughter townhouse 1200 this year, value 250K.

5% state tax, no local tax so I generally don’t get close to filing the long form.

State/local government is out of control and need to be on a spending diet.


#62

Oh believe me, we are very vocal about our local taxes. And will probably move in the next 5 years because of them.


#63

You are preaching to the choir.

It’s outrageous.


#64

and how much of those taxes did you vote for throughout those years living where you’re at?


#65

Yet for the next five years you’re going to let yourself be subjected to them.


#66

This is a bait thread. Abort.

What’s really interesting is the number of people voting to increase those state/local taxes who don’t actually pay any of them. Now why do you think politicians would allow people who don’t pay those taxes to vote for them? :thinking:


#68

yep. kid in the school system. maybe not 5 years, but well see.


#69

The same thing happened in california when the little people voted to increase the state income tax on high income earners to 13.3%.


#70

Of course. If given a choice to vote for taxes other people will pay, most will vote for them. It costs them nothing. Personally I think the only ones who should be allowed to vote on such measures are those who will actually be subject to them.


#71

Tyranny of the majority in its full glory.


#72

Indeed. And we wonder why the system is so screwed up now…


#73

hah hah now it’s a jail bait thread


#74

Did you know that you are simply reciting Trump hating talking points. I’ve seen these talking points recited flawlessly by some of the best Trump haters. I would rate your effort as amateurish at best.

Its a shame you didn’t stick around.


#75

I actually find that hard to believe. You might have more credibility if you were more specific instead of talking in generalities.


#76

Tax cuts.
Better judges.

Just to name 2.

7 million? Out of how many?


#77

Perhaps you now know how it feels to be taxed out of your home.

Yet, you cannot seem to draw a parallel from a microcosm to a macrocosm. The principals and mechanics don’t change.


#78

Is it not better than tyranny of the minority?


#79

Is it now?

Trump cured erectile dysfunction? I didnt get the memo.

Oingo Boingo! I remember them as one of the few rock bands to have conservative themes in their songs. Their magnum opus, “Only a Lad” was about an evil kid laughing at a stupid, coddling justice system. The ending line was “Hey there Danny, I hope you fry” or something like that
