    Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

    While some taxes are ok, property taxes really piss me off. The main thing with property taxes is school tax, and I have never had any kids, and I have been out of school for a very long time, but still paying for it.
    Even 40 years ago, my uncle who had never had kids, told me one time: "if anyone working for the school ever messes with you, I want to talk to them, because I pay so much in school tax they better treat you well".
    With all the money that is supposed to go to education from the lottery, school tax should be done away with I think.
    And while I used to be ok with tax for firefighters, now even they go out looking for ways to fine you, like the police does.
    (I have not had problems yet, but I have seen it happen to others first hand).

    Well, if you don't fund the schools, you have a bunch of idiots everywhere... We have Catholic schools that are publicly funded, which I do have a problem with.

    Are there any Americans left on pinside?

    Are there any Mongolians left on pinside?

    Found my neighbor dead in his house about 6 months ago. New family just moved into the house. We are in a quiet relatively affluent neighborhood.

    They park on the lawn, peel out on the street when they leave and have crazy loud mufflers. The old guy seems nice, but the bumper sticker on his truck says F*CK You Libtards!

    Politics aside, I think we're likely in for a long, bumpy ride with this group. Thank God they don't have a dog.

    Quoted from o-din:

    They sound like my kind of people! And if not, I'd still try to get along
    They may be the last one's on the street with any beer.

    Haha, true. I will do my best, but when I see the word retard on a vehicle, I start to worry.

    I bank with Tangerine, which used to be ING Direct until Scotiabank bought it out. Surprisingly, they haven't ruined it too much. It is still a no fee account for any age, and the chequing account pays interest, albiet low. My fees were $14 per month before this account, and I typed that in the "previous fees" box. My fees saved to date are $1088.97 since opening the account, and the interest earned from my chequing is $658.04.

    I keep bugging friends and family to switch. I tell them these numbers, and they're amazed. But it is too much of a pain for them to do the paperwork.

    One of the greatest financial lessons my father taught me was, "Don't ever think in weeks or months when considering money. Always think in years and decades. If you save 30 bucks a year by paying your insurance at one time, in ten years, you'll have three grand. Do this 9 other times elsehwere in your life, and you have thirty grand."

    I know you guys likely know this, but it seems like 3/4 of the planet doesn't.
