+4We always hear about a need for new taxes to help our schools. I'm not buying it. One of the big pushes for legalization of marijuana here in Colorado was that the money would be used for education. Last year, Colorado collected over 260 million in marijuana taxes. Not one penny went to teachers or students. Now they want to increase property taxes and other taxes, to support our schools, once again. Where the hell is the money going and why aren't corrupt politicians being held accountable?
My stocks are doing so-so, near all time highs and growing at same rate for 10 years or so. No complaints but not getting rich. My grocery bills are definitely up 20% or more. Healthcare cost is way up and raising at a rate faster than the last 5 years. Not that I need the money but overall I am not feeling any financial pain nor am I feeling the need to celebrate a windfall. How about you?
