On the sender or the receiver? WHAT will it cost us? It always costs US in the end with higher prices for products we need to buy! I already overpay for internet services and broadband! What ever happened to FREE?

Maybe a "air' tax too ?

Post by GarryRicketson » Tue Mar 26, 2013 10:14 pm

If they could figure out a way to do it, they would make us pay a "air" tax too, that may not be so far away, as polluted as the air is in big cities, and even some rural areas, I imagine soon some kinds of "huge" domes will be built, with purified, and filtered air,.. but the price to live, and work in one of these, will be high, only the rich, and the "exclusives", will be able to afford it, the "factories", and "housing" for the slaves, that work in the them, will be outside, the "perfect peoples" doom cities,.. oh the "slaves" will be paid, very well too, however, they will also be charged, a very high tax, to help maintain the "perfect peoples", exclusive "dome cities",.. Nothing is really free, there are always "strings" and "gimicks" attached to the "free worms" , in the "sea",.. but the "fish" never figure it out,.
Ahh, and what a "sleezy", pretext, for the e-mail tax, claiming it will clean up and stop the "e-mail spam",.. That is just like the one " We need to raise the taxes, to fight the dirty "commies",..oh, now it is the war on terrorists,..and tax e-mail, to fight the "spammers" ,
Greedy people will always come up with new ways to justify stealing what others work for.

Ha ha we pay postage and they pay to mail us junk mail. I get more junk mail than spam and it has weight! Any way you look at it, we pay for everything. I call it trickle up.
