Some economist on a Radio program the other day pointed out something very disturbing. The government puts taxes on the gas that we buy....then they charge us GST (goods and service tax) at the pump. So essentially they are charging us tax on a tax. I don't recall exactly how much it worked out to...maybe 2 cents a litre or less...but if you add it up for all the gas being sold in was something like 500 million dollars.
If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.
