How about the 75 to 85% of YOUR money that YOU pay to various governments, FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL????
You think that maybe, just maybe that THAT might be the reason you're so poor??
Think about it, income taxes, [federal, state and sometimes local], sales taxes, excise taxes, property taxes, health insurance [mandatory now] auto insurance [mandatory in most states]. And I'm including these insurances because they are MANDATORY, AND NOT A CHOICE, now. If you HAVE to pay it, it's a TAX and NOTHING ELSE. I Don't care what the politicians and bureaucrats call it, if you have no choice in paying it, IT'S A TAX
You'll always be short because Barry distracted you with his right hand while his left hand was pilfering your wallet. mmm, mmm, mmm!
Yeah, you can't buy much of anything with a nickle or a dime...but you'd be surprised at how fast they add up when saved.
A big bowl of change, say, can help pay for a minor emergency much handier than tapping into savings. Just a thought.
