    Default The Tax Poem

    Makes you sick does't it -


    Tax his land,
    Tax his bed,
    Tax the table
    At which he's fed.

    Tax his tractor,
    Tax his mule,
    Teach him taxes
    Are the rule.

    Tax his work,
    Tax his pay,
    He works for peanuts

    Tax his cow,
    Tax his goat,
    Tax his pants,
    Tax his coat.
    Tax his ties,
    Tax his shirt,
    Tax his work,
    Tax his dirt.

    Tax his tobacco,
    Tax his drink,
    Tax him if he
    Tries to think.

    Tax his cigars,
    Tax his beers,
    If he cries
    Tax his tears.

    Tax his car,
    Tax his gas,
    Find other ways

    Tax all he has
    Then let him know
    That you won't be done
    Till he has no dough.

    When he screams and hollers ;

    Then tax him some more,
    Tax him till
    He's good and sore.

    Then tax his coffin,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in
    Which he's laid.

    Put these words
    Upon his tomb,
    'Taxes drove me
    to my doom...'

    When he's gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply
    The inheritance tax.

    Accounts Receivable Tax

    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.
    We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middleclass, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
    What happened?
    And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?

    Obviously US.

    In one way I'd would have loved to see the neocons get in instead of Obama.

    They would have lowered taxes to a very low level, got rid of most of government spending for the people. Run the country into more debt, fighting wars they had no way to pay for and finally we would have seen an uprising from the US citizens. The experiment would have been interesting to watch (from a distance).

    That was one of the things that Roosevelt achieved with his new deal, stopped instability of the populace. Not to say he did a good job on all fronts.

    The neo cons are always attacking Bolivia (the country they tried to stage a coup on but the elected President just walked back in to cheering crowds). the nasty left wing evilmonger instigated free healthcare for the poor and free education, what a left wing bast..d. (Hey, we have those)

    Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it.
