If it moves, tax it

Stuff I'm glad I saved from my email grinders:
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 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, then
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his a..

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.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What the hell happened? Can you spell "politicians!"

And I still have to "press 1" for English.

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times.
France has all of that (replace "Federal" by state or national when appropriate), and much, much more. 42 cents per gallon of taxes? Bah, amateurs! Taxes make for 75% of the gasoline cost at the pump in France.

And that's still nothing compared to the rest. There is no limit to the "creativity" of the legislator when it comes to spoliation as a synonym for regulation, and France is a living proof of that. We've got a tax on another tax down here folks.

France is beyond salvation, so I beg you please, don't let your politicians in the US drag you down that road(1) the way ours in Europe did, and keep doing.
  1. There's a Reader's Digest pdf here, fine for a quick and cheap peek even though I'd still recommend the full version as one of the few books you definitely want to read in your life.

Under Reconstruction

Hey, where's all the stuff?

I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.

As of July 07, 2020, only basic blogging is implemented.

Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...

So all the stuff is coming back?

Yes, thank you for your patience.

Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
