I don't know why, but this has been on my mind a lot as of late. Maybe it's the start of the new year, which brings around taxes, taxes, and more taxes. I would just love it if someone would explain the tax system, or whatever you would want to call it, here in Kentucky! For instance, why, while we live in the city of Paducah, should we be burdened by paying both CITY taxes, and COUNTY taxes, while those living in the county only have to pay county taxes. Isn't their mailing address PADUCAH also? I have never understood that. Why is there no tax on food when you go to the grocery store? Wouldn't that help the economy a little bit and generate more revenue for the state? Why do they take city tax out of my paycheck? It isn't much, but I still don't understand it! Maybe the reason that I am so confused is because I come from a state where there is a food tax, we are not taxed on the value of our vehicles every year, they don't take city taxes out of paychecks and so forth and so on. I posed this question to someone yesterday and I got accused of having a REPUBLICAN point of view. I stated that was not the problem, it was just something that I really don't understand, and that I would just like for someone to explain it to me. Any takers?

Hey Patience,

Who writes the Time is of the Essence blog? I've left two comments for the person as I'd love to promote it, but they haven't responded
-- although they did comment on my very cute Girl Scout cookie post (Thin Mint Julep cookies!).

Anyway, I'd love to connect with the writer(s) just to share the love.
