    Someone once told me that taxes out of your paycheck started to help the war effort of WWII and was suppose to stop after the war was over . Well , seems like the war on taxes is still going on . Take a good look at your cable or cell phone bill someday

    First US of A tax was during George Washington's time in office. To cover the cost of the Revolution, the gov't. started taxing whiskey (including GW's stills' production) starting what was known as the Whiskey Rebellion.

    I wouldn't mind paying taxes so much if the gov't. didn't waste most of it.

    We had a revolution due to taxation without representation. Taxation WITH representation is even worse.

    I would hardly call buying on eBay personal. But yea, sales tax.

    What I mean is, one human selling a USED item to another human. Not the RETAIL STORE side of ebay. Ebay gets their cut of course, but sales tax??? That's BS.

    Yeah, the tax has already been paid on that, as well as on the income you've earned to buy it. Tax upon tax. It's a scam developed by people who don't actually work for a living---the professional leeches we all know and love called politicians.
