An evil and Adulterous King who lived on the American Continent a century and a half before the birth of Jesus taxed the people 20 percent of all they possessed to help him and his priests with there lifestyle. They thought that was too much. When King was burned by fire after persecution some of his former subjects paid tribute of half to longstanding enemies. Escaped after guards overslept. Taxes are necessary for proper functions just the more you make more we take not great. $5.00 dollar haircut thing is is time worth money? Some things people do or don't because there cheaper may do it if time is no deal but even if something is cheaper like scanning coupons is the time worth it?

I envy you - you only have problem with his use of homonyms.

Suddenly reminded me an old (and sad, as they usually are) Russian joke:
Stalin announces on the meeting of the Central Committee: "I suggest that we execute all Jews and paint the Mausoleum green."
Someone asks: "Why green?"
Stalin: "I knew there will be no objections to item one."

Sure does ramble doesn't he? As for haircuts, I figured out that a $30 set of clippers could be paid for by not getting 2 professional haircuts. I manage to do a good enough job with them and mirrors to get by. So far, I've saved about $120 on haircuts since I bought the $30 clippers. So I'm $90 ahead.
Suppose you buy a gallon of gas for $3. How much did it cost you? You say, "Williams, that's a silly question. It cost $3." That's where you're mistaken, because there's a difference between price and cost. To prove that price and cost are not the same, consider the following. Suppose you live and work in New York City and routinely pay $15 for a haircut. Imagine you were told that there's a barber in Boise, Idaho, who can give you the identical haircut for just $5. Would you start going to the Boise barber? I'm betting you'd answer no because...
