Run the taxes through the roof if I can get a better school system and
better public sector services. There are still loads of rich folks
making scads of $$ (sorry - don't have the Euro symbol in front of me)
so the higher tax rate can't possibly be killing off business like the
whining shift the tax burden to the non-voting people - our kids and
grand kids - keep claiming. Maybe we should up the death tax and kill
'em off early to pay off the bills they have run up.

Didn't we get in a little war around 1776 over "No taxation without
representation"?  

Gad! What a rant even from me. Maybe I shouldn't eat pepperoni pizza
before I hit ALE mail...
