    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our
    nation was the most prosperous in the world, had
    absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle
    class in the world and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

    What the hell happened???

    Tecnically, Worker's Comp is not a tax but a mandatory insurance. And how can you forget my favorite adjunct to Sales tax, the "Use Tax" - a home state tax on anything purchased out of state that had it been purchased within the home state would have been subject to sales tax.

    You forgot Machine Gun Tax

    and, in TN, they charge me sales tax when I buy a Gold Coin that is Legal Tender.
    Like a tax on a money itself

    And do you think that Coproprations pay their taxes out of pocket and don't pass them on to you? It's estimated that over half of the price you pay for a product is the Corporate taxes incurred along the way.

    BTW, The Dollar is currently only worth around $.04...
    and a pre-1988 penny is worth about 1.3 cents right now...

    It was just the quickest place to quote it....didn't mean it was you ghrit....

    everyone at work already discussing taxes and meeting with their CPA's...because they are all independent realtors, they choose quarterly and not to mention all the stinkin' money they make...ONE commission check last month? One check , from one sale?? Over a hundred grand....

    I'm in the wrong end of this business.....

    Well, ya got different things going on here.....not all to do with taxes ( and PLEASE don't think me in favor of ANY tax...it's all organized theft in my book )

    In the case of taxes, in the War of Nothern Aggression, the North won.

    The war was about taxes. The North wanted to keep on taxing the South to pay for infastructure in the North ( like roads, canels, rail lines, etc ). Unfortunately for ALL of us, BIGGER GOVT was the result, and govt never met a tax it didn't like.

    As to the National Debt....yeah we did have one 100 years ago.....no where NEAR what we have now, but it was there.

    Go here if you want to see it for any particular year:

    As to Mom staying home.....well, 100 years ago, things were a LOT less consumer oriented....."home" was most likely a 500 sqft structure on average, with no electric, and maybe not an inside bathroom. Transport was the family horse and maybe a buggie if you were upper middle class, not 50-75k worth of machinery you see in most middle class driveways today...there were no electronic goodies, vacations, or college tuitions.
    So, Mom didn't need to work to keep up with the Jones, because the Jones couldn't buy any million things we find to waste our money on today........so Mom doesn't have to work today either, as long as the family is willing to live closer to what the family did 100 years ago.

    You have a decent enouph point but would have to qualify it by saying it dose depend some on how good of a job dad has if mom can stay home now, unless of coarse they make use of all those taxes the gov collects to redistribute as welfare. We do live a LOT closer to what most folks did 100 yaers ago than most any other than maybe amish folks but it still takes 2 incomes (with both of them being low :( ) to just make the land payments and keep lights and the roof and so on.
