Taxes Suck!

Ok, I guess that didn't really need to be said...

However, here in the "great" state of NY where I reside, the Governor has released his version of next years tax increases. Among the gems:

An "iTunes" tax - Tax on digital music downloads
A "Sugared Drink" (aka Soda) Tax
He will now apply the state sales tax on all entertainment venues (movies, arenas, etc.)
Repeal the ban on taxing purchases of clothing items under $110...
New taxes on cable, phone, and internet services

It just goes on and on... if this keeps up, I'm going to have to start writing this blog from another state!
