Either my browser isn't running this properly, or France still owns half of Canada. Either way, I`m concerned.

McGovern1981: "Taxes have exsisted since Ancient Egypt..."

True. Ancient Egypt had lots of different taxes though - but not with real money; in the sense that Egyptians paid each other in goods or labour. So hunters & fishermen paid with food, Carpenters paid with labour & goods. Every ancient households had to pay a labour tax anually by actually going to work in the mines or canals. Alot of wealthy Egyptians also paid poor people to do this - perhaps as a form of taxable deduction. Haha.

I was only focused on the historical aspect of the North American timeline when it came to taxable incomes.

But the fact taxes started after World War 1 & 2 means we're paying taxes to sponsor Government State Terrorism.

Taxes have exsisted since Ancient Egypt...

I like how it starts out grey or blanc.
As though there was no one here.
The 1st colonization would be native americans.

Pretty sure the Dutch 'owned` some pretty important places too byt alas, the timeline only starts after that. Our heritage includes such wonders like Harlem (Haarlem), Brooklyn (Breukelen), New York (Nieuw Amsterdam), Wall Street etc.
