    Taxes

    What Happened? At first I thought this was funny...then I realized
    the awful truth of it. Read ALL

    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.

    & ;nbs p; 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 ass

    ;&nbs p; 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..."
    &nb sp;
    When he's gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply
    The inheritance tax.

    Accounts Receivable Tax
    Building Permit Tax
    CDL license Tax
    Cigarette Tax
    Corporate Income Tax
    Dog License Tax
    Estate Tax (don't believe for a minute that double taxation doesn't
    exist!)
    Federal Income Tax
    Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)
    Fishing License Tax
    Food License Tax,
    ; Fuel permit tax
    Gasoline Tax (42 cents per gallon)
    Hunting License Tax
    Inheritance Tax
    Interest expense
    Inventory tax
    IRS Interest Charges IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax)
    Liquor Tax
    Luxury Taxes
    Marriage License Tax
    Medicare Tax
    Property Tax
    Real Estate Tax
    Service charge taxes
    Social Security Tax
    Road usage taxes
    &n bsp; Sales Tax
    Recreational Vehicle Tax
    School Tax

    Telephone recurring and no n-recurring charges tax
    Telephone state and local tax
    Telephone usage charge tax
    Utility Taxes
    Vehicle License Registration Tax
    Vehicle Sales Tax
    ; Watercraft registration Tax
    Well Permit Tax
    Workers Compensation Tax

    COMMENTS: 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 happened?

    And I still have to "press 1" for English.
    I hope this goes around world 10 times!

    A bit misleading, I know at least two of those taxes don't apply to individuals, only to business.

    Hmmm...well, If you want the government to:
    pave your roads
    inspect those buildings so they don't fall on your thick head
    establish standards to protect and inspect the food you eat so your kids don't get sick
    educate you and your kids since you apparently aren't smart enough to
    keep you (relatively) safe
    put out your fires
    arrest those who actually did you wrong, vs. those you think did you wrong
    try to keep your water sources from being polluted to the point of killing you
    keep a standing military to do all the dirty shit to protect your way of life
    provide a park or playground for your kids to play in
    support television programming (PBS) that doesn't teach your kids to cheat, swear, drink and screw, since you won't
    Shall I go on?

    Simplistic shit like this email is what's actually wrong - try coming up with solutions instead of just bitching about what you in your ignorance see as the problem. Everyone wants everything to be all better, nobody wants to pay for it, and nobody has a clue how to do it, but they'll all send out useless, misleading emails that accomplish nothing. This country USED to have people that were actually accountable for their behavior, instead of just whining. What happened?

    Gee, IED, you're such a BUZZKILL! But you are also right.

    These emails are typically misleading and simplistic, but I think they're mainly just a source of catharsis for a few minutes before being sent to the trash folder or forwarded on to others. I sure hope there's no one stirring up a call to arms over one of these emails.

    It's frustrating in that a lot of taxes seem like duplicate taxes, and then when you hear of the misuse of that money it really raises the hackles. Congressional pay raises, pork projects, money designated for "A" going to "B" instead, etc. One can only wonder if a: the money was used properly and b: everybody paid their fair share (yes, Rollie Fingers, I'm talking about you! ), one wonders how much our individual burden would actually be.

    Damn straight.

    I like paying my tax. Out of many, I like the fact that a share of it would go to financing public hospitals and public schools.

    Yeah, well, my post was a venting opportunity as well. So I guess the email served a counter purpose...

    And smithjc - well, uh, yeah, they do. Regardless of how necessary they may be.

    And I'm all for accountability in how the taxes get used, no doubt about it. I just get tired of people bitching about what they don't know much about when they have no suggestions for solutions. Well, that and I've had a shitty day.

    I hate taxes but pay them without complaint.

    The key is to be aware of what is going on in your city, county, State and Federal representatives are doing. If they are supporting a bad idea, you write letters and drop by their office and get in someone's face.

    Then, if you don't like how they do their jobs, you vote for someone else at the next election.

    It's just that simple. The problem is that people would rather bitch than vote.

    The people that say voting doesn't make any difference aren't paying attention and are probably too stupid to have extra money anyway. While I hate taxes, I pay them knowing that my representatives know what I think and in a way it's almost worth the price.

    I just got an interesting email that kind of pertains to this thread.
    If someone has to pass a piss test to earn the wages that are taxed, shouldn't the welfare receipient also pass the same piss test to collect the funds provided by the tax?
    I know this would add to the bureauracracy(sp?) but I think it is a pretty good idea.

    Actually, because of Clinton, many welfare recipiants do have to either pass a drug test OR can loose benifits if they are arrested and found guilt for drug crimes.

    Interestingly enough around 1940 when the U.S. was getting close to war and was actively supporting the British, taxes at the time were paid around 90% by corperations. Now they pay about 2%. The pandemonium of the war allowed this to go unnoticed, and it never reversed. At least in a country heavily taxed, like Sweden, secondary education is paid for by taxes.

    1) Legalize hemp in all forms (industrial, medicinal, recreational). This would not only bring IN tax revenue from the sales, but would CUT the tax money wasted on paying police to arrest stoners and for state prisons to house them.

    2) Eliminate all tax loopholes for the rich and make them pay their fair share.

    3) Destroy the self perpetuating criminal monster known as the "military- industrial complex" and audit every goddamned penny so that money spent on the defense of this country actually goes to the military and not to the Halliburtons and Bechtels of the world.

    Do these three things and we'll be drowning in so much tax revenue that (once Chimpy's debt is paid off) the middle class might not have to pay taxes at all anymore.
