In Holland almost all(maybe none) ISP providers have no download limit. I always had unlimited download and i never paid much at all

Coming from someone with bad ears (not from festivals but from grinding and drill tools) I'd say it's worth it.
Ears don't recover like other parts of the body, once they're damaged they're damaged for life. A peep tone all day, day after day and not properly hearing someone is not fun wink.gif .

The last part you couldn't be more wrong. Our income tax starts at 33% for the first 18.000 euro's you earn. The next 14.000 euro's you earn are taxed at 41.95%. The following 22.000 euro's are taxed at 42%. Then anything you earn above the afore mentioned 55.694 euro's (I rounded off with the previous numbers, but not the taxes) will cost you 52% in taxes
Whereas as far as I know America will tax a maximum of 35% over every dollar you make over 388.000 dollars (for a single person probably).
Not to mention, our VAT is 19%. (and will probably go up to 21% upcoming october)
Really not that hard

yes you get taxed more, but the money actually goes into government programs like universal healthcare
and paid maternity leave etc

in america, where profit = everything,

hospitals try to make money of sick people, you only have 3 days to leave work if your immediate loved ones die to get over it, you still have to work when youre pregnant, up until a bit before delivery

and still, we have people who say "capitalism is the best system in the world". It basically turned everybody here into money hungry vultures, which is fine, but at least admit it

I agree that job security is a lot better here and our healthcare is pretty brilliant. And I wouldn't have it any other way, especially not the setup the USA has. And yes, the money we pay to the government, comes right back at us (might not always see it, but that is the idea).

All in all it's a brilliant system apart from the way they compose a government, but I suppose every country has it's vice. But when people say we pay less taxes, they're wrong, easy as that tongue.gif
