Jim Miller: NFL Draft

Wednesday, 08 April 2015 12:21
Louisiana 19th ranked state for being a taxpayer
 

wallettaxIt’s no secret that tax bills aren’t created equal. But while most of us understand that some states don’t charge income or sales taxes, we don’t necessarily realize how state-by-state tax differences result in us paying considerably more (or less) than our neighbors in other states. To answer that question, WalletHub today released a report on 2015’s Best & Worst States to Be a Taxpayer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WalletHub compared tax rates in the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia in terms of the national average consumer’s income and spending habits.

  6 Tennessee   47 Connecticut
  7 Idaho   48 Rhode Island
  8 South Carolina   49 Wisconsin
  9 California   50 Nebraska

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack.
