Just another tax, we do not have that one but pay high property taxes here.

No state income tax though.

yes taxes suck, but up here in canada we pay 3-4 times as much in taxes. your 2500sf house built in `05 would be 400k no problem up here.

On a positive note, you still have your X2, its almost summer, that leaves more time for beer drinking and wakeboarding..... Granted I dont know how well unemployment pay will fill the gas tank. But hey at least prices are somewhat cheaper than last year this time!

Sorry to hear about your loss.... :(

What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

All this talk about "stimulus packages" and "bailouts"...
A billion dollars...
A hundred billion dollars...
Eight hundred billion dollars...
One TRILLION dollars...
What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I'd take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.
We'll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Most everyone has seen them, slighty fewer have owned them. Guaranteed to make friends wherever they go.


A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for week or two of shamefully decadent fun.




Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000). You could stuff that into a grocery bag and walk around with it.

While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet...
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c13/californiakid1/0100million.jpg

And $1 BILLION dollars... now we're really getting somewhere...
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c13/californiakid1/0billion.jpg

Next we'll look at ONE TRILLION dollars. This is that number we've been hearing so much about. What is a trillion dollars? Well, it's a million million. It's a thousand billion. It's a one followed by 12 zeros.
You ready for this?
It's pretty surprising.
Go ahead...
Scroll down...

























Ladies and gentlemen... I give you $1 trillion dollars... (man standing at bottom left)

http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c13/californiakid1/0Trillion.jpg


(And notice those pallets are double stacked.)
So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase "trillion dollars"... that's what they're talking about.

There was fair warning about all this stuff before the first Tuesday after the first Monday last November. It made no difference. :mad:

For those that don't know Melarus are in addition to your property tax for new areas in So.Cal. they had to get creative after prop 8 capped the property tax in the 80's. That is why I no longer live in So.Cal. I loved my job but just couldn't afford to liver there anymore.

"Mello Roos" is a Supplemental Tax here in Cali. Most newer communities have Mello Roos assessments to pay back for the schools, roads, water lines, etc. mello-roos info (http://www.mello-roos.com/pdf/mrpdf.pdf)

If you have an HOA, expect an additional bill each month for that too.

Welcome to home ownership! :D

I dont mind paying taxes, The war in Iraq wont pay for itself. To me its odd that this thread was started by a Californian. A state with so many rich people, how is it on the verge of going broke? I was in a car with a coworker this past winter and he was crying about paying taxes, then not even five minutes later he was crying about the potholes in the road. And I am not saying the thread starter is crying.

Be more patriotic send them some more money. No offence but at the rate we pay taxes these days I find this ridiculous.

The reason states and not just Cali are broke is because they took in record amounts of revenue over the last 10 years and managed to spend more than they took in and did not save a dime of those record revenues for a rainy day. These people only know how to tax and spend.

Let all these states go bust and try and explain that to the electorate. Why exactly does Maryland have a negative population growth..................... easy people are getting out in droves from failed liberal policies and politicians.

No offence taken, the wonderful thing about America is we have the right to voice our opinion on sensitive issues.

I wish people were leaving Maryland in droves, then it wouldnt take me an hour to go fifteen miles. Unfortunatly marylands population has remaind steady appx 5.5 mil. and has been 19th most populated state since atleast 2004.
