Wi Fi Without Representation

If I could tax anything I'd tax some fine bitches, so every time I try to get a piece of ass, they'll have to acknowledge my existence.

Source: Tumblr

So we were sitting in class today
and my Us History teacher was
trying to get us to understand why it
was such a big deal that England had
put a tax on colonial sugar, and he
goes.
What if you had to pay a tax every
time you logged onto wifi'?"
And the whole class just went
and I heard at may two people
whisper "l would murder someone"

Amerifag here
I actually wouldn't be opposed to paying lots of taxes if my money actually went towards free college (for those who want it), health care, and other **** . I mean college is my biggest expense and I'd be more than ******* fine working and paying taxes for the rest of my life if it meant I never had to pay for it nor for my future kids.

Oh please.
You have to pay tax for WiFi as it is.
And we have tax on sugar and tea.
Americans pay far more taxes then the early colonist did under England.
Today the average American pays 54.4% in taxes. (www.nowandfutures.com/taxes.html)
And the colonist got pissed over really nothing compared to day.
(www.straightdope.com/columns/read/1594/percentagewise-were-taxes-greater-in-the-old-days-or-now)
But what ever if there was a law that you had to pay a "tax" every time you "log into" WiFi Americans today would do it with out question.
America land of the sorta free and world military.

And pots legal in N Korea fyi.

Well i live in a socialist country and they literally do tax ******* everything, and know what? it is ******* great.

Good health care.
Good education.
Get paid to go to school.
Crash your car? can never work again? no worries TAC has got you covered buddy.
Good minimum wage rates
Everyone gets paid not to work, centrelink bitches.

All in all i can not understand why democracy is so beloved...

Though it was a ****** thing to do, when running an Empire do you know what the two most expensive things are? Wars and colonies.
You know what England had a lot of at the time? Wars and colonies.
You know what funds them? Taxes.
You know who was taxed through the nose? Everybody- even the people still living in the mother land.
You know who's being supertaxed now? Britain's new generation of workers. Bright, fresh from college/uni, just starting out working. GASP! You earned £1300 this month? Allow us to take a 30% cut.

Tax happens. It's Britain's thing it's what he does. Only now it funds the NHS instead of us having to buy our lives back.

It was actually the Stamp Act that fueled the revolutionary fever into action.
This is because it impacted the two areas that were vital to the Revolution: The Press, and the Judicial System.
The Press began to spread anti-British propaganda and began calling for arms, and the Judiciary began to draft bills for independent laws.

This "history" teacher must have a very limited understanding of what actually happened, and I feel sorry for his class.
User avatar #167 to #166 - cumbersome (03/13/2014) [-]
Nowhere in that text does it say it was the cause for the revolution. It just says it was a big deal, and if you think it wasn't just because it wasn't the trigger then I don't know what to tell you. But for starters you should probably read the text properly if you're going to use it to insult someones career

As far as I'm aware, the English were taxing the tea because the Americans had defaulted on the loan they owed England when they asked for troops in the French-Indian war. They had demanded that England send troops to help them, but of course England was fighting in Europe at the time so America agreed to pay for the troops themselves. 20 some odd years later America decides " **** that, I'm not paying" and England is like "Yes you are."
#142 to #139 - pxthreezerothree (03/13/2014) [-]
Actually, it's the other way around. The Colonies spent money to pay and arm the troops fighting in the French and Indian war with the understanding that Parliament would reimburse them. When the war ended, Parliament decided to only reimburse them what each Colony was supposed to pay and not what they actually spent. For instance, Pennsylvania spent 500,000 pound during the war and Parliament reimbursed them 60,000 pound.
