Guess we should not complain about taxes anymore


Stats:

- German avg. household income (src: statista.de)
- before tax (2017): 60100$
- after tax, social sec, etc. (2017): 45682$
I wasn't going to guess Germany, but it was pretty obvious from those numbers that NJ must be your initials, and not indicating the state of New Jersey.

As someone with homes in the outer boroughs of NY and Maryland outside DC, I laughed at both those prices and the Connecticut ones. Oh, how I wish.

Here in the U.S. the property tax is paid mostly to the local town. It is a largest tax that most retired people pay. It is an unfair tax. People who live with their parents [or others] don't pay property tax. People who live in apartments pay only a percentage of the land value. [Indirectly through their rent money]. If a lot of land is valued at $70,000 and it has 7 apartments on it, then each renter pays on a $10,000 value. I have to pay on the $70,000 value AND have to plow my own driveway.

What a week of news !!

The Cohen Hearing was televised. This gave the world a little peek into how our government works.
Our president travels halfway around the world to make a deal with a Communist dictator. And comes back empty handed.
We had a successful rocket launch that docked with the space station. It has been 8 years! By next year we won't have to pay the Russians anymore, if things go as planned.
Payless Shoe stores are closing nationwide. I don't understand how someone would buy shoes without trying them on first. More jobs lost to Amazon. And the lost rent from the buildings.
Three other major stores are closing some of their locations.
A major hurricane hits down south.
Mother nature gave me a foot of snow the other night. Thanks a lot. First real snowfall this winter. [CT]
Ocean cruise liner nearly pushed over by 115 MPH wind gust. Probably exciting for passengers who didn't get injured by the tables and chairs sliding at them.
Tesla announces a small SUV will be shown next week at some auto show. There was no announcement date for the PT Cruiser electric/battery conversion kit.
