    What we get is the most expensive military ever conceived. How many schools and hospitals could have been built with the $300 billion we are spending in Iraq? I read somewhere that for every car that GM makes, $6000 of the cost of the car is for medical for current and retired employees. The $300 billion in Iraq would go a long way to providing medical coverage for the 45 million americans who don't have any, most of whom work full time and play by the rules, or are children.

    Hi Sean,

    The state of Washington already collects internet sale tax. They went to court and got the records from all the companies that sell cigarettes on the net and back charged everyone who had bought cigs for the state tax not paid. Go to 'my ebay' and see if they have the entire record of everything you ever bought there.

    This was not meant to start the soup box, just observations of what is already happening. The interent sales tax is coming and soon. The local towns are losing too much revenue from lost sales and closed businesses.

    This SHOULD only apply to the U.S.A. and it appears they are going to collect from the buyers at the point of destination, your local state. Too bad no one has ever seen a politician say no to free tax money, have they? It is safe to assume they will all jump on this faster than you can remember their names.

    LAZ; I decided to leave New York when I noticed 'they' were taking more out of my paycheck than I was.

    Have a good morning people.

    I have, many times; I'll take the M31 over most of the interstate roads in the US. While our roads may be larger and broader in scope, the actual road conditions are not very good - potholes, uneven surfaces.

    Isnt that the truth. And have you ever been to the high country? Driving along sheer cliffs and drops without a single guard rail. Totally nuts! If a tire ever blew out along these roads you are dead.

    I was told you would be better off calling an Aussie english than accuse him of drinking fosters. VB is the one.
