Ron_Luning said:Just moved to Maryland from California. People joke about CA being a socialist/communist state, and certainly it has its problems, but let me tell you that MD is on a whole other level. Even though my Super Tenere is a 2012, I will have to pay a sales tax to MD for registering it here (in addition to all the registration fees and title fee). Because CA tax rate is higher, they generously will charge me only $100 for the privilege of moving to MD.
Today I brought the bike into a dealer to get the MD state inspection done. $75 later they tell me it failed because the rear brake rotor is beyond the spec. It measures a quarter of a mm too thin. I can't smurfing believe this place. So now with a new rotor on order, with me installing it, I'll be out $200 before I even go to the DMV.
I hate it here already.
You forgot to add the bit where your Personal Income Tax is 65% if you earn over $55k and you have to pay into a private retirement scheme, not one funded by the government........shrekonwheels said:I liked Danmark, everything is done and beautiful. The roads are great, trash is picked up and believe me after a night of partying they toss shit around like anywhere, by 9am the Elves must have magically appeared to clean up as I never saw anyone actually picking up the trash.
You can order a beer with your value meal, nobody freaks out if you have a drink on your lunch break at work or if you drive.
Great healthy food, you can eat out and not worry about a bad meal as they take immense pride in everything they do.
"free" medical so you break something you don't have to worry about filing bankruptcy.
Outstanding public transportation that runs n time.
Time off! You would crap yourself if you knew how much time off from work many Euros get in the summer.
People dress with pride and dignity, are well read and educated.
I really wished I had stayed, I thought firearms mattered, and to a point they do, but I would rather have a country that cares for each other and their infrastructure than the US where it's a struggle to get pot holes fixed or books in schools cause muricans do not want to prioritize paying higher taxes over having garbage they do not need but feel entitled to.
Whatever CW said. I'm not familiar with the 10/22 and didn't realize it was a long gun. I only had one long gun the entire time in lived in MD. I'm much more familiar with the MD hand gun laws since it dictates where and how I can go through the state.Checkswrecks said:Your 10/22 won't be a problem as long as you've not cut the barrel short. I think the minimum is 16 or 18". Handguns are the target of the gun laws here.
::025:: I need that top sticker for my truck. Also that's insane. My property taxes out here in Ceciltucky are right about 2100/year, and luckily don't get hit with any local town taxes either as Rising Sun proper has lots of legal issues.Checkswrecks said:Both of my mid-20s kids live in trendy Baltimore neighborhoods and we finished a gut/remodel on my daughters' 1900 row house a year ago.
Lots to do but the tax on her row house is near $6,000/year!!!
