Even exempting food is a bad idea. (Better to increase benefits etc to compensate the poor.)
The problem is, this country is full of politicians (nearly all right-wingers) with hearts as cold as the intergalactic void. They never do anything to make life easier for regular people. Those assholes would starve the poor just so they give the rich another tax break.
I wish I could move.
My Photoshop CS2 serves me very well and will continue to do so until Gimp catches up.
Me too, especially since CS2 is effectively free now. Adobe shut down the activation servers earlier this year so they actually gave out activation-free CS2 installers AND their serials. It's the only non-douchebaggy thing Adobe has done in recent memory.
