[QUOTE]\nUsing the patented Mavis Beacon "Hunt&Peck" Technique, Stephen\n\n\n\nWhen I consider the family who live in a privately-owned house next door\nto mine, four adults, only one working (in a McJob), who manage to run\nthree cars between them (one on an '09 plate) and who boast of getting a\ngrant to replace their windows, I find myself unable to disagree with\nyou.\n\nI also wonder where I'm going wrong.[/QUOTE]\n\nMe too. I've worked long hours for close to thirty years and have\ntaken very little from the state. I've made choices that have even\nsaved the state money.\n\nYet all the state seems to want to do is take an ever-increasing share\nof my income and use this to pay for central stupidity and funding the\nfeckless.\n\nStill, looking on the bright side when it comes to my retirement the\nstate will look after me well I'm sure. Suppose it's only right since\nthey're taxing my attempts to provide for myself.
