Wait, wait... I'm confused! 35% of what? If I remember my HS Algebra: 35% = 0.35; and 0.35 of X = $100? Is that right? Then X= $100/0.35. and X= ? You finish it for me, please.

umm... methinks that 35% is close to 33 1/3% or 1/3; and 2/3, or 66 2/3% oc $150 is $100. Get some 5th grader help there, John.....lol

about 150 dollars taxed at 35% equals roughly 100 dollars after taxes. He was off a bit, but he made a good point

That being the case, I have to ask of Mr. Ransom and others here, what controls, if any, do you favor over the purchase and use of weapons, including semi-automatic weapons such as the one used by the killer in Aurora? Or do you think we have too much gun control with the laws we have now? - The American Solution: Reach for the Guns
