Taxes

Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax; Telephone Federal, State and Local Surcharge Taxes; Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Tax; Telephone Recurring and Non-recurring Surcharge Tax;Telephone State and Local Tax; Telehone Usage Charge Tax; Use Tax; Utility Taxes; Vehicle License Registration Tax; Vehicle Sales Tax; Watercraft Registration Tax; Well Permit Tax; and last, but not least, Workers Compensation Tax


According to the e-mail, not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids. And I still have to press l for English!!!????!!!! What the Hell?


And yet, in the late 1920's the country sank into the worst Depression the country has seen and continued until World War II, which ended in 1945 and brought a new era of thinking and the Marshall Plan, which revitalized Western Europe.


And the rest is history, but we have to be reminded once in a while of all the changes that have taken place and are occurring as we speak, some good, some bad. The Nation will survive in spite of Congress and their continual hunt for money from tax payers.
