    I tend to agree with you. But then I realize that when I get old, there will be no government services left. Do you?

    i don't mind paying tax when it's justified, but double taxation is bullshit. once something has had tax paid on it, that should be it. does it make sense to have 12% paid on a used vehicle for it's lifetime every time it's changed owners?

    No it does not. Taxes have to come from somewhere. Gotta pay for all the mistakes past governments have made.

    because they feel it is hurting new car sales..
    limit your options and make buying something used less attractive..
    that and the fact almost every car sold privately in BC is done for less than 500 bucks on the bill of sale....

    Don't quote me on this, but I think they put an end to that as well? I thought I remembered hearing something about how you now pay tax on the assesed "fair market value", not what you declare you paid. And considering the battles I've had with icbc in assessing what fair market value on a vehicle actually is, well.....not good.

    Hard to believe you think that is the only funds the government receives.

    I wonder what you paid for your bridge?

    Don't even bother, some men you just can't reach. I am sure he is king of the idiots up there in Williams lake, he probably has a great union job that provides him with a dental plan. I'm pretty sure that means he has "made it"

    Belonged to a union once and only once 1981 to 1987. Since then it has been piece work.

    I get paid for what I do. If I screw it up, I do it again for free (I also have to pay for all materials, which would far exceed my original pay) Pay my own medical, dental, and retirement plan.

    Being a union boy yourself you should know, they tend to lean toward the NDP. That is pretty much why their unions support the NDP. Or is it the other way around?
