Taxes, Taxes, Taxes

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Classic Realty Associates

Every time you turn around we are faced with taxes. Sales tax, income tax, tire tax, franchise tax, corporate income tax, and then there are those politicians that want to add more taxes. How can they even begin to go there in this economy is beyond me. The people they hurt the most or those that can't afford to pay one more penny in taxes. We need to cut spending in this country , both in the private sector and in the public. Time to start focusing on saving and breaking the debt chain. It will take sacrifice. Just need to convince the Washington bureaucrats to stop expanding now.  

Have a great week!   and stop spending, save.

Goodluck saving with these gas prices and the need to drive to make money.

Now that's some good advice. I met with a financial planner the other day. I was complaining about how my net worth has dropped since the begining of the year. He told me to stop complaining and proceeded to explain to me that many of his clients have absorbed all of the equity from thier homes, maxed out thier credit cards and could not pay the bills. I suddenly felt better.

I gues we need to take advise from history and look at what the generations did before us and the sacrifices they made in tough times.

I already don't put my money in the banks LOL. Also it is hard for me to cut back driving so I am not using alot of gas because that is a big part of what I do... I drive from location to location all day and in between I ride my gas mower, use my gas weed wacker, gas blower, gas hedge trimmers, etc. etc. etc.. Basically my life and source of income revolves around gas :-\
