Am I the only one who thinks that $20-30 a year isn't that big of a deal? I'm not crazy about paying taxes, but I do it anyway. Go live in Somalia if you want to live tax-free.
I'm just thankful that the government isn't selling off the public lands (like some states want to do) to private entities who could either shut off access or potentially charge vastly more to recreate on their property.
Your "thankful" that the gov't isn't selling off OUR- that's yours and mine, land? Again, your thankful? Gonna just follow along huh? (baah baah) Seems a rather pussified stance on the matter IMO. Why don't you write a letter to a congress critter and actually DO SOMETHING about it.
And sure, $20 /yr is no big deal right? Of course not. Just add it to the multitude of taxes, fees, registrations, etc.etc.etc. (ad nauseum). Do you know there was/is proposed legislation in Maryland to charge (tax) homeowners for the amount of rain water that lands on their property? Where does it end? Just so these scum bag politicians can keep on rolling along.
