Yes, George Washington had to deal with a broke country which was bankrupt by fighting a war primarily over unfair taxation. So what did he do? He raised huge taxes on something popular which would generate a lot of revenue quickly-liquor. He was also the biggest producer of liquor in the country.

What is currently popular yet untaxed? How does a dollar per fuck sound? Drewprof has applied to be the first IRS fucking inspector.

Then I compared this same thing with many people I know, as well as people out of my general area... Everyone was living beyond what their means should have been.

Have you ever taken the chance to see how many people that earn less than 60k a year are living in a house that is over 100k?

I know one thing is for certain, the pattern here is..... many Americans are living beyond their means. Ask any budget consultant or financial advisor.


Ps: Did you know that no one should ever be living in a residence that costs more than 30% of their annual income? Did you know by the time you are 40, if you want to get real specific, you should have enough money saved to live for 10 years without any job? I guarantee you right now, 90% of the people on this board can not do that. I also venture to say that probably 1/3 of the board is spending too much money on their housing.

I studying this for the past several years... See the pattern?

As we all know the Bush Administration managed to screw things up for us big time.
Lets hope for the best of changes from our new President in office.
