"Giving Back" - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor

I don't know if this is the right forum or if I should put this in the Gripes area, but here goes.

I'm sick of the "giving back" stuff that is always used for doing volunteer work. Man, I have a full 1/4 of my paycheck siphoned off for taxes. Then I pay 7% sales tax on everything I buy. Property tax on my house is $2000 every year. Then there's all the other taxes and fees.

The way I see it, an awful lot is being taken from me under the threat of prison time if I choose not to comply. A lot of the money is being handed out to people who do absolutely nothing to deserve it. It is they who should be giving back - not me.

Why should someone who works his hiney off his whole life and is successful "give back?" He's been giving back his whole life. Let the fat lazy welfare bums (men and women) show some appreciation for a change. When is the last time you saw a group of welfare recipients go out and clean up an area or volunteer at a Habitat for Humanity house building project?

Give me a break man!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
