Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: School taxes are what we pay to make sure the next generation isn't full of illiterate f*cking idiots.
MasterAdkins: Just look at it as you are paying for the education you received as a child.
Dinki: I cannot attend a teacher's parent association meeting, I have no say in school affairs, I am completely barred. This is taxation without representation.I'm pretty sure you could run for the school board if you wanted real representation.What he needs to do is declare himself a corporation then he could claim that paying for other kids to learn sex ed violates his corporations religious beliefs.
eurotrader: I wonder what is soo hard to grasp with the idea of societal benefit.
Sin_City_Superhero: That's a wonderful idea! We'll just let people pay taxes for stuff they want to pay taxes for. Brilliant!Guess what, dumbass...we ALL have to pay taxes for stuff we don't want to pay for.

wildlifer: Why does it cost less to send a child to private school than what is spent on each public school student?
Spandau: As a childless tax payer (the wife and I decided it wasn't for us), I don't mind paying my share. What does piss me off is getting my taxes raised every year just so they can build some new facility or unnecessary item.
gfid: wait - does subby actually think his taxes are paying for my social security?Fark you, breeder.I am sure my taxes are helping to pay for schools. I guess in the big picture that's a good thing, but fark you - I have no kids. I am not a burden on society in that way and by the same token, my non-existent kids will never contribute to society.I'm actually probably going to die before I collect any social security.So enjoy all the taxes and shiat I've paid over the years.

Federal retiree means they were a civil servant working for, you guessed it, the federal government.// Note that the source is Federal News Radio, which is the main "what's going on with federal government operations" news source in DC. Not political news, but day-to-day operations type stuff.
