Isn't it "budda-boom tish"




As long as you are paying rent or own property you are paying and will continue to pay for it, a portion of property taxes go to schooling, your tax assessment should tell you how much, (it is included in rent as well). Now, I don't know what happens once you move to the manor or lodge or whatever the euphemism of the day is.

Musta sucked paying off the student loans for your primary school.

Didn't get a loan - paid it myself. It's a concept called "savings" which seems not to exist anymore


Not that I don't know that I was still subsidized - just not "overtly". I meant it when I said I earned every penny and paid my own way thank you very much!

You paid for your primary school? With money you saved up? How old were you when you went to grade one, 24?

So, if you're subsidized, but it's not overt, you're paying your own way?

OK, thanks.

I'm just amused at the folk who say "Ah PAYED fer evathang I got!"



Yeah - it's called NOT living off the government teat! I understand that education and health care are subsidized by the government. I'm not entirely clueless!! But there are benefits and grants and loans that are available to those who want them and I have never accessed any of them - that's all I'm trying to say. But of course, you would prefer to maligne me instead. Go for it! I don't offend - I'm not a SJW LOL

And yet you claim that you paid for everything you got. Education, roads, public buildings (many of which were built and paid off before you were born), &c.

I didn't malign you. I pointed out the error in your thinking.

You don't offend me, but you seem pretty offended, your rather pro forma denial notwithstanding.

Do you oppose social justice, Dix? You don't seem to think much of it.

I imagine the amount of government money I've sucked up'd earn your hatred and contempt. Especially since I don't pay taxes.
