    Problem is, the sales tax. Here in cheeseland, the state sales tax is 5%, but the city adds an additional .5% so its a 5.5% total. Naturally, they screw you out of the added .5 so you're really paying 6% on the dollar. Without pennies, I'm pretty sure the locazl tax would jump up to a full 5% so you'd be paying 10 cents on the dollar. It'd make too much sense for the state to rebate 1% of their gross intake to the locals, besides then they'd be losing 1% on every dollar.
    There are worse things in life than being a born cynic.

    That happens everywhere I think. And, think about filling up at the gas station. If I took a gallon can to fill up for the lawn mower and put in one gallon, you think I'd get my 1/10 of a cent in change? Try arguing that with the kid behind the counter.

    The problem is the Canadians do not have emotional attachment for QEII that we have for Lincoln.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
