I've just cut a half dozen checks to the state and fed for my quarterly taxes. Which quickly undid any gains made in August's budget.

The company I run has been able to pick-up a number of Federal, State and city contracts that have help replaced the lose of our normal "retail" clients with the current downturn.

So I see the pain and the hit that taxes can be on the budget. (Healthcare is a huge hit, too...) but I also had to hire a few kids right out of sandbox to help with projects that we have going on ("recovery" related).

Granted, I know these kids are planning on heading "home" (the mainland) at some point once they feel settled, but I can use the extra hands and they are always willing to put in full days efforts, unlike some of the local guys. This all thanks to our taxes dollars. I also know that these government contracts are only short lived projects for me.

So I ask, honestly, why do folks on this board hate the idea of higher taxes. I just want to know...

This is exactly the sort of question I would expect from someone who's profile signature is from some Rappers lyrics. :roll:

I pay a lot of income tax, it hurts writing those checks. When I set up my corp next year I might go with an S or C insted of an LLC, my accountant said it will help a bit.

Could it be???

That most goes to bums, Fat lazy basterds, ACORN and the like. When shortages come like now, they Cut Defence, Fire, PD first, not arts, Gay and Lesbian funding, Illegal Allian funding and general junk programs. Why not make bums work for food stamps and housing money? Yes there are needy people out there but they are buried under the bums and probaby not getting help because they don't know how to SCAM the system. We need to make Government cut its budget and live with in its means as we do. We dont need all these entitlment junk programs, the free ride is over. Take care of the needy that are disabled, the rest need to get a job, house them in dorms, feed them in mess kitchen. Do not give them money to buy their own stuff. Make them work a 50 hour week to get meal ticket, bet they find a job quick. We have created this lot and have kept expanding it, it stops now. Too many people benefitting from entitlement programs, Politicians buy votes with them, people get hefty salaries running them, did you give to the United Way this year? For a charity Org, their CEO sure gets a small pay check, huh?

I don't post much here, but you have got to be kidding!!!!! Do you post stuff like this on purpose just to get a reaction? Or are you really soooo obtuse you don't know the answer?!?!?!?! I mean, gov't waste is at an all time high, the economy is in the toilet, unemployment is almost the highest it's been in history, Obama wants to spend us into oblivion, China owns lots and lots of America, welfare just keeps getting more and more bloated, the rest of the world points and laughs at us... For god sakes man, engage your brain before letting your fingers do the walking!!!!!! Besides you answered your own question in the 1st sentence of your question.... sheesh!!!!!!!!!
