I so want to do this with the extra hotel taxes that are added.
This worked for me (kind of) in India recently. I made an internet booking, which included taxes, but on checking in, they upgraded my room "at no charge". On checking out, they tried to charge me more because the tax was higher on that room. They tried to claim it wasn't them, it was the government and there was nothing they could do, so I claimed it wasn't me, it was the beancounters at my company who had preapproved the advertised rate and wouldn't pay a cent more. Eventually they backed down and Hilton ate the extra tax.
To take a clear example, Clinton wants a 65% estate tax.
You do realise that the proposal to raise the estate tax does not come with any proposal to lower the exemption limit, which currently stands at $5.45M. This tax is simply not affecting ordinary citizens, you are being misled by the very people who are taking your wealth and lining their pockets with it.
"This tension, this stress, of trying to balance newly emerging technologies with the established patterns and rituals of our lives is extremely common

You might want to learn something about how mail-in ballots work. It's not "voting with your name on it".
So how do you know that all the ballots have been filled by registered votors?
Let's say a poke go user spends an average of 1 hour/day for 3 years playing the game.
To say that, you'd first have to eliminate the 90% of players who get bored with it after the first two weeks.
Lavish spending can be disastrous. Don't buy any lavishes for a while.
