I'm from good ol' Tax-free New Hampshire, and boy do I wish we had a state income tax. Let me explain why.
As I was driving home from work this morning (3rd shift) in the 2 inches of snow we got here, it hit me. This interstate has not been plowed. Then I
began to notice that NO roads were plowed or even so much as salted. That 2 inches of snow sat on the roads for so long it was pounded into slippery
Driving home was a nightmare. On the interstate, cars had worn ruts into the slush and if you aligned perfectly, you were all good... but stray from
that rut or try to change a lane, and it became a battle to keep it on the road.
The radio was talking about some absurd number of accidents, and on my way home I saw 3, and I fishtailed through every corner I went through. All
from 2 inches of snow. TWO INCHES. On my way home I didn't see a single truck laying salt, sand, or plowing anything.
Now when I lived in Massachusetts where I was sodomized weekly by their state income tax, it was a whole different story. The very second a snowflake
fell from the sky, trucks were out all night laying down salt/sand and plowing. By the time it was done snowing, you'd have thought they even
squeegeed the damn road.
Next time you're complaining about state income tax, just remember this post.
