So to reward us citizens paying the PVT...



drivetest centres go on strike, the roads are in ridiculous condition, AND most importantly, the PVT may not be earmarked for vehicle-related maintenance (transit, roads). Wonderful. At least they're going to help us out by harmonizing tax. Go government!

I guess my rant is as unique as your contribution.

and my rant was precipitated by having to pay the tax today.

Stop your whinning damn it. We had an increase on income tax here. It will now be over 50%. On top of that the inflation has gone up so our loans are getting on ridiculous levels. And work wise all pay rises are frozen.
In other words stop complaining as it could be worst!!!

Yah, what he said....


Not,


People should complain, and rightfully so, when they are being forced to pay tax that are not benefiting them and being misappropriated. Only idiots who like being kicked around like shit just sit quietly and wait for things to get better...

In difficult times ..difficult measures take place.
Whats the point nagging when at the end of the day we are all gonna pay.
And trust me when i say this but if someone is paying something he shouldnt its us.
We are paying because of 10 people ****ing things up.
At least your taxes will be spend back at you. For us our taxes will be spend paying other peoples expenses!
I do agree people need to complain and rightly so...but if i wanted to read or hear about it i would not come to a car forum where i mainly come to get away from this stuff!

Yep
And It can always be better!
And no offence meant by my comment. Its just that i am tired of hearing how things are all going down the drain.
I have enough info on this from the media all day and night.
We need to just learn from our mistakes and move on...and that means we have to accept we will pay for shit we shouldnt!

And who do you think is going to pay for the things you burn down????
Look at what happened in Greece this year.
All the damages will be paid by taxation one way or the other...

our taxes, especially for PVT, will not be 'spent back on us'. In all likelihood, its going into the general ledger. Or maybe paying to bid for the Pan Am games so our traffic ridden streets can get even more clogged and we run vastly overbudget developing NEW stadiums.

Let me know how that goes.

Honestly. I want a picture of you protesting in front of Queens Park. Better with other people there too participating, not jsut you by yourself.

Too many people make these bold statements but never follow through. Prove me wrong.
