    Property tax here comes in the form of local government rates, they value your property, they make you pay yearly rates on what it's value is.
    Still it's much better than the poll tax in the UK.

    Did someone mention polls?


    14th Century Poll Tax Riots King Richard & Wat Tyler.
    The Peasants' Revolt of 1381 is one of the most dramatic events of English history.
    Our history is revolting!


    That is why we have no right to arm ourselves.

    That was a day that shook England. It came from nowhere onto our TV screens and all of us learn about Wat Tyler and Richard the Turd (A horse, a horse........ my Kingdom for a horse) early in our schooling. C'mon England.
    It was like history, leaping out from the history book.
    Even Margaret was surprised by her revolting peasants.


    Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the Glen..............
    A pardon has been found dated 1382AD for Lord Robert Dore of Wadsley (Loxley) otherwise known as Robin Hode.

    It all calmed down when everyone stopped for tea.
    I tax you not, give them credit and cake........

    Yeah, our property taxes are done the same way; but I am rather lucky as my property value (by the local government) is far lower than the actual value of my property. So I don't complain about what I pay.

    VA Helps Turn Risky Non-Military Loans into Guaranteed VA Home Loans.
    Veterans with financially unstable subprime mortgages are now able to receive VA home loans
    via a generous military loan refinance program expanded by President Obama.

    During deep sleep IT came to me and the future of processing is clear.
    Future processors will primarily be digital tuning radios acting as grid computing nodes.
    Voila. See ya in hell.
