All my ex-belongings live in Taxes - Bob Paslay

Let me say upfront that I hate taxes and I hate everything about the concept of them. You scrape, you save, you eat hamburger helper with no hamburger (well maybe not that bad), but you put together enough to buy a a house or a car. And then each year you have to buy a part of those two belongings back in taxes. It's the only two things I know you have to keep buying even though it is paid for. Could you imagine going to the mall and buying a new shirt and then at work some tax guy (or gal) comes and rips your shirt off for not paying the continuing tax on it.

I love consumer products - in moderation - Zach Porter

I have now joined the elite ranks of those cosmopolitan trendsetters who own an iPod. It is the nature of such technological toys that once you plug them in you can't imagine a life without them. In a few years these things will be as common as the cell phone and may replace the traditional ways in which music is bought, sold, and played.
