Valve Games on Origin

In an interesting twist to the competition between Valve's Steam and Electronic Arts' Origin, the Origin store is now selling some Valve games, as seen in this buy two get on free promotion, where the games in the "buy two" part include Counter-Strike: Source, Left For Dead: Game Of The Year Edition, and Left For Dead 2. Thanks Joystiq.

Greese has a large black market/cash economy (untaxed) which is a big part of thier problem.

In NZ, our GST (goods and services tax, like VAT) has gone up 2.5% as well, yet the goverment dropped the top income tax rate. (anyone with alot of money has accountants who cliam back thier GST - therefore it only effects those on low/middle wages. I know cos I'm self employed, well paid, and have an accountant and have been told I should buy a new car just to not have to pay any GST this year, or the next few. You can also then claim back intrest on your morgae and house hold cost due to the car living in the garage. All this despite the companies that contract me supplying me with rental cars and air travel)

It's a con by the rich to get richer at the cost of the poor.

Anit' gonna buy that new car untill I need one, not now just to pay less tax.
