This is kind of cool, the lid popped off of the jar that has been holding back my rants.

I want to bitch about taxes too. I'll lay out the reason for this.

I just had the pay period from hell. This eclipsed the previous pay period from hell by 20 hours. Anyone want to explain to me why I brought home the same amount of money? WTF is this? One works overtime for 2 reasons. 1. to make MORE money 2. He/She has no choice because their employer says so. One should be rewarded with a bigger paycheck after putting in a bunch of extra time tied to the grindstone.

I lost 700 dollars to taxes! WTF? That's a whole goddamn paycheck to some folks and I lost it to fucking taxes. That's bad enough, but the nature of one of these taxes really pisses me off. City income tax.

I understand that some cities have an income tax. My issue with the thing is that I am not a resident of this particular city. I just work there. So what you're telling me is that I have to pay "tribute" to you for the pleasure of working in your city? Whatever happened to taxation WITH representation? As someone who is NOT a resident of your city, where's my representative? Isn't this the kind of shit that started the American Revolution?

I think I'm going to write my Congresscritter and suggest a couple changes to the tax code that will really help the American worker and maybe, if anyone actually reads this, we could get a national movement going here.

1. Abolish income taxes on any hours worked over 40 in a week. That way, the overtime earned actually goes to the tax payer giving him or her more money to spend thereby relieving many of the economic issues which face this country. can only tax my first 40 hours, so if I work say can't tax the 20 hours of overtime. That money goes to me and trust me, I'll spend it somewhere.

2. Abolish the ability of a city government to withold an income tax on a worker that is not a resident of that city. I shouldn't have to pay "tribute" to you in order to work there. I'm only there 8 hours a day, why should you be able to tax me? It's not like you plow the damn roads in the winter anyway, bastards.

Lower taxes means more money to the people who will spend it and more spending means better economic times for everyone. Listen close left wing fucktards, if you raise taxes on businesses, the businesses will up their prices accordingly to make up for revenue lost to said taxes. In short, if you raise taxes on businesses (like oil companies) they're going to raise prices and fuck all of us. Morons.

When I lived/worked in NJ, my boss lived/worked in NYC. Because his wife worked in NYC, they EACH had to pay income taxes in BOTH states. Yes, not only did he have to pay it in both NJ and NY (and NY city tax as well), but his wife- the one that lived and worked in New York City- had to pay New Jersey income tax on her income because her husband worked in NJ.

Now that's some serious crockage there.
