Re: Property tax on Satellites ;)

Well, we have Bangladesh now wanting to sue the USA for some stupid reason
like we pollute too much or something.  The rest of the world thinks we
pollute so much, yet the air I breathe is very clean and the air I breathed
over in Asio was horrible.  Yet the USA is the first there in disasters, we
send more doctors to hot spots to combat disease, we give more food to those
in starvation, etc. than everyone else combined.  Oh well.

Back to satellites.  This satellite tax is about as stupid and ludicrous a
thing that I can think of.  There are just some people in government that
just want to get their hands on every single dollar they can.  They are a
bunch of greedy bastards.
