Cassiop, I understand how you feel. I'm sure that you have it over there too, but I can't understand getting taxed on something you already own, hence, land or houses or cars (all thought I live in Virginia and there doing away with the car tax). It baffles me how you can get taxed on something you already got taxed on when you bought it. No wonder the US gave land away in the beginning, they knew they'd tax us later.
I understand that taxes are a necessary thing, but then you see the stupid things we spend money on. I used to be in the military and $50 dollar hammers is no lie. I once saw a lightbuld for a jet that cost $5.00 for 10, and in a bin right next to it, the identical same bulb was $150.00 per bulb.
The Internet should be a FREE thing. I agree with ISP's charging and what not, but the governments of the world shouldn't make a dime on it. When they do, then it becomes tainted.
Sorry, soon I'll start ranting about other things, so I'd better stop now. The problem now is that we're to dependant on technology. It's quite difficult to go on a strike for 2 days, much less more, without a phone.
By the way, Cassiop, are you a native to France? Your English is quite good.
