And the lawyers advertise when they're not chasing ambulances. But what is more troubling is that kids learn it at home. Generation to generation training. They can't hold a job of any kind, but they learn how to work the system from top to bottom by the time they drop out of high school and have their first kid.
Yes, Margaret Thatcher made quite a statement.

The first paycheck I brought home, my father informed me I would be "paying my mother $15.00 a week 'board, Doll"' And he stuck to it. Jeeze, I was only home for summer break.

You should have shown them some independence and said "Fine, I'll stay at the frathouse this summer". It's what I did. Shut down that room and board thing pretty quickly.

Your parents raised you to be a bitter, shrew-like doormat of a hag. They charged you room and board, your boss abuses you on a regular basis, and your fellow posters here hold you in contempt.

If you do some research you will find that the R&D of most innovations and products are funded with private capital.
Excluding, of course, the shrimp on the treadmill type of project. Taxpayers get the honor of paying for that.
Then why did our government spent all the taxpayers' money to build that useless federal highway huh??? Why didn't they just let private suckers fund themselves to build their own roads, in fact you and I should pave our own roads to avoid wasteful spending! I personally blame Eisenhower who started that socialistic projects which led to more socialism and people are just leeching to use the roads unlimited times. Shame on him!

Th government built the highways with taxpayer money and the upkeep is paid for, in most cases, by charging tolls. The knowledge and skills of HOW to build a highway that lasts and is safe, and the material and equipment to do it, most likely began being amassed when the first PRIVATE settlers starting cutting down trees to make paths. Private contractors built the infrastructure. Corp. of Engineers play a small role, but very little in R&D.

How much R&D goes into shrimp using a treadmill and what's the advantage to the taxpayer?

btw, Eisenhower not only started the interstate system but provided millions of jobs for vets returning from WWII.

That's socialism and I do not like that, Eisenhower and his filthy liberal minded posse need to keep government out of our lives, just like the exact same way Obamacare is going to do to us.

I've been driving for 24 years and except going to Chicago I do not recall paying for tolls, and yes I have been 23 states so far. If you are going to defend private > public at least try to be consistent do not praise Eisenhower then complain the same sh1t Obama is doing. By the way, it is the private health providers that offer coverage for the citizens and Obamacare much like the Fed Highway is forcing everyone to pay for something that everyone is going to use in a small or large way. Unless you want to pay more when you drive more your point is exactly supporting a government subsidized idea/project.

“Gang Stalking”

Although Edward Snowden’s revelations about the NSA generated a lot of discussion, U.S. domestic counterintelligence activities receive very little attention. This is so despite a series of news reports on this creepy industry from sources across the political spectrum.

Articles have been appearing with increasing frequency over the past decade about allegations that something comparable to the FBI’s infamous Cointelpro operations is being performed again – and that it apparently includes the organized stalking of targeted individuals using methods virtually identical to those that were used by communist East Germany’s Stasi.

An article in the Nation (America’s oldest continuously-published weekly magazine) in June 2013, for example, stated this about activities by intelligence-security firms, the FBI, and the Department of Justice:“One might think that what we are looking at is Cointelpro 2.0 – an outsourced surveillance state – but in fact it’s worse.”

Gang stalking – also known as “organized stalking”– is a slang term for a set of tactics used in counterintelligence operations involving the covert surveillance and harassment of a targeted individual. The goal of such operations – in the parlance of counterintelligence personnel – is to “subvert” or “neutralize” an individual deemed by a government agency (or its informants) to be an enemy.

A cover article on gang stalking in The Washington Post Magazine in January 2007 by a journalist familiar with military policies and weapon systems portrayed self-proclaimed victims of gang stalking as credible.

Among recent news reports on gang stalking was a TV news broadcast in West Virginia on 14 November 2013 (on CBS affiliate WDTV) which featured two individuals from Pennsylvania who appeared to be credible and sincere, discussing their constant harassment by perpetrators using gang stalking tactics.

Another news report in November 2013, a TV and radio broadcast of Democracy Now!, featured an interview with the director of the Center for Corporate Policy who discussed the shadowy industry of spies employed by U.S. corporations to conduct secret – and often illegal – counterintelligence operations against critics of those corporations.

Articles published in December 2013 by CBS, the Daily Mail, RT, Tech Dirt, and Courthouse News Service reported that a U.S. government contractor filed a lawsuit against multiple federal agencies for gang stalking him (the complaint refers to gang stalking as such). The plaintiff claims he was subjected to constant surveillance – including inside his residence and his vehicle – and constant psychological harassment from co-workers and strangers.

U.S. Department of Justice crime statistics from a 2006 survey indicated that an estimated 445,220 stalking victims reported being stalked by 3 or more perpetrators.

All Americans – not just those who have not been personally targeted by this crime – should be concerned about the apparent use of Stasi tactics by their government and its corporate cronies.

A complete archive with the news reports above and many others on this disturbing trend is posted here – including links to the original sources.

Oh we do, Tony. It's all in the fuel tax imposed by state and federal. And then there's that handy little fuel and highway use tax that all big trucks pay.

Electric cars don't pay fuel tax. Neither do most LP powered ones. Also with newer cars being more efficient, less tax is being collected per car at a time when there are more cars (and more wear and tear on the roads).

I think a simple formula of weight and miles driven would be a fair basis.
