I laughed when he died.

That's good news.

How is everyone?

Poorer. (Just paid property taxes so that other people's children can go to school on my dime.)

That sucks.

If it makes you feel any better, some of those kids fought for your right to bitch about it.

Probably not very many. A lot fight though...with each other...and their guards.

You know, for complaining all the time about people being inactive on this board, you sure seem unwilling to communicate in a way that encourages further interaction...

Obviously you are unaccustomed to laconic irony. And obviously you do not pay property taxes. But that aside, where in the constitution does it require people to pay property taxes? It doesn't, but they are a relic of past times when property was owned only by the very wealthy. The taxes were a way for them to show their power and generosity. Today, this no longer applies. Many of the extremely wealthy own little or no real estate and so are not touched by the tax, while a large proportion of land owners are retired middle class people or farmers, whose wealth is tied down in their property and they have few liquid assets on which to live . Back when Property owners were the wealthy, voting rights were relegated only to land and property owners, so they were the ones who actually determined property tax rates. Today, voting rights are given to virtually all citizens above a certain age, so now it has become the norm for voters to be able to vote taxes upon a portion of the population that do not include themselves for their own benefit and not for the individuals forced to pay them.

For something to be Laconic it is assumed it will be witty.

You just spout non-sequitur.

Anyway, I'm not going to get into a flame war with you. The grass is always greener....

Though it seems you might want to keep in mind that the Constitution also failed to abolish slavery. You know, back when people were property?

You'll get no sympathy from me complaining about how more people get to vote these days.
